Gautam Thapar-promoted CG Power and Industrial Solutions on Tuesday said an investigation by its board found major governance and financial lapses, including advances to related and unrelated parties as well as liabilities of the company and the group potentially being understated by hundreds of crores of rupees.

After 13 hours of discussions lasting till 4 am, the board came to the conclusion that there were some unauthorised transactions carried out by 'certain employees', which led to a potential understatement of not only the company's liabilities but also advances to related and unrelated parties of the company and the group.

Advances to related and unrelated parties of the company and the group may have been potentially understated by Rs 1,990.36 crore and Rs 2,806.63 crore, respectively, as on 31 March, 2018, and by Rs 1,479.34 crore and Rs 1,331.47 crore, respectively, as on 1 April, 2017, the company said in the regulatory filing to exchanges.
