As per news report of NDTV, the CBI started its investigations on a complaint by Bank of India, which alleged that Kwality Ltd had taken credit from the bank since 2010 but started defaulting on payments in early 2018. The account was classified as a non-performing asset in August 2018, it said. "The forensic audit of the accounts showed that out of the total sale of Rs. 13,147.25 crore made by the company, only 7,107.23 crore were routed through the consortium of banks. (Kwality) overstated its financial statements by bloating its business operations and indulged in manipulation of accounts by making reverse entries," the bank said in its complaint.
