Certain Issues on MEF

Dear Members,

Last date for receipt of hard copy of duly signed declaration: 10th June, 2006 (5:30P.M.)When you click in part I, the message "Active X control" appears. You are required to click Yes.

The website is down for maintenance

The website is down for maintenance. You are requested to kindly log on to the website after 04:00 p.m. today i.e. 18th May, 2006.

The Institute has been receiving communication from the members with regard to the Empanelment Form and therefore, the Council, after discussion, has decided to inform the members as follows:

All members who wish to apply for Bank Branch Audit, or Empanelment with other organizations must open the MEF, and (i) edit and update last year’s data (if the firm had applied last year), (ii) fill in the form afresh if the firm is applying for the first time, (iii) fill in the columns which have been newly introduced this year and which will of course, appear blank on the screen whether the firm applied last year or not.

Members are informed that although it had earlier been announced that last year’s panel would be valid for two years, in view of the fact that last year, the firms which did not fulfill…
