passing of the Finance Bill in the lower house, such expectations have
been dashed.

Stricter standards have been suggested by the Securities and Exchange
Board of India (SEBI) to reinforce audit procedures and reduce sudden

statutory auditors behave more responsibly and resign only for real
reasons without harming investor sentiment.

had said last year that India could go beyond the goal and reach 225 GW,
according to media news.

exemptions and tax slabs.
