About The Book

Audit and Accountancy have been revolutionized by computerisation. During the earlier stage of computerisation, batch processing methods were used so that the auditors were not bothered about processing of information and were treating computers as a black box, never bothering to see what was happening inside it. They were getting input and output statements, registers, ledgers accounts etc. and computers were used only to print them. The real power of computers was never understood or utilized. Even accountants and auditors are so overwhelmed today by the use of mainframes that sometimes we get to hear that the auditor has prepared quality audit reports. It is mandatory for an auditor to perform tasks which until recently did not be existent or were not in the preview of the auditor. If the weaknesses could be controlled in manual environment, then corrective changes could have been easily formulated and suggested which a difficult task to do so. The part of an auditor is changing and a new profession called Information System Auditor (ISA) has emerged. Since, corrective measures for control weakness are difficult to implement, and auditor has to be involved with designing and development of Computerised Information System (CIS). Computer based tools and skills are required to enable the auditors to access, analyse and evaluate the data stored on the computers, since it is not possible to review or evaluate and handle the data manually or mechanically. This book attempts to enlighten the concept of Computerised Information System and its approaches, provisions and standards made by ICAI, review of several experts and a comparative study of audit under Computerized Information System in Public Banks and Private Banks of Mumbai city.
