The Supreme Court on Monday stayed a direction in the order of Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT), which stopped market watchdog Sebi, from barring the auditors from auditing listed companies. In January 2018, the Securities and Exchange Board of India slapped a two-year ban on Pricewaterhouse (PwC), an arm of PricewaterhouseCoopers India, from auditing any listed company for its role in the Rs 7,800 crore Satyam scam. The SAT, however, quashed the two-year ban.
