2. As per para H of the above circular, the reimbursement of lodging charges to

partners/proprietors/qualified and unqualified assistants of audit firms has been linked to IBA

approved rates for bank officials. However, it has been brought to our notice that the IBA has since

discontinued the practice of approving rates and has advised its member-banks to enter into

arrangements at the bank level with reputed hotels to facilitate stay of their officials while on duty

outside the Headquarters.

3. In view of the above, it has been decided that for the purpose of reimbursement of the lodging

charges payable to statutory auditors, the banks may adopt the category-wise limits fixed for lodging

charges payable to their officials while they are on duty outside the Headquarters. That is, banks may

reimburse lodging charges to their statutory auditors as under :

Category of audit officials Scale & designation of bank officials

Qualified Assistants III – Senior manager

Unqualified Assistants I – Officers

Wherever banks have Guest House or Visiting Officers’ Flats, the same may be utilized to cater to

the needs of the auditors.

4. Please acknowledge receipt.

Yours faithfully

(P.S. Sharma)
