Central Govt has stepped in and disbands the current Board of Directors and will nominate ten new Directors.
The new board will decide the new management for Satyam.
More here: Govt disbands Satyam board, to appoint nominees-India Business-Business-The Times of India

A very good move by the Govt, it will instill confidence to the employees and investors of the company.

The local news channel here today apparently reported that Satyam wont be paying salaries for 3 months. If its true, its bad.

2 months is now 3 months eh ? Talk about attention-seeking-media!

Sudipto,
It could have been aptly titled as "Satyamev Jayate ?"

Zappo and Avi..Thanks for standing by Satyam.
The new punchline for us is "The might of Satyam lies in every Satyamite".

TOI has been very unfair to Satyam in terms of their absolute yellow journalism.
There has been no email whatsoever from Satyam management that Salaries wont be paid to employees..on the contrary there have been assurances to all the teams that salaries are guaranteed for employees.
Satyam has also welcomed the Govt of India's decision to appoint 10 new Directors in the board.This seems to be a positive move and should restore investor confidence.
Incidentally Ramalinga Raju has surrenedered an hour back in Hyderabad to AP Police.
All said and done,I m with every Satyamite and myself being a Satyamite for 9 years,i wont abandon this company so easily....All this will tide over soon.
Long Live Satyam and its might...every Satyamite.

Mr. Raju is unwell today as per his lawyer Mr. Bharat Kumar and has taken permission from SEBI that Mr. Ramalinga Raju will appear before SEBI tomorrow at 4 PM.

With 2 new projects, i pray Satyam recovers and the rumours around this end soon to an end.

Every country has its problem. Just last week 2 men robbed Wachovia Bank at gunpoint. Few days before at Felton bank. I am sure many in future. Does that make US a failed state?

Did you mean TV9? Talk about media ethics. TV9 will never report bad about Satyam because TV9 is promoted by Peepul Capital. And Peepul Capital & Satyam were co-founded by same person !

BTW, is it a surprise that Peepul Capital gave grants of 35 crores to ISB and ISB Director was on board of Satyam?

Isn't this news old ? I thought Satyam had gained this contract much before the Maytas fiasco.

Heres a link Satyam outbids rivals to win railway deal

It dates back to 25 November, 2008

My two cents on the issue:

Firstly, was shocked at the events and as disgusted by this as by the events in Mumbai last November. Just reiterates that a greater enemy lies within our country - corruption.

I wish all employees of Satyam enough courage to get through this phase - which I'm sure will pass, but realistically will take some time. I welcome the government's move. I think stake holders like LIC, etc. will make sure that the company's clientile don't take their business elsewhere. This is good for employees and also the common people who have invested in the company.

But I want the govt. to set the right precedent in terms of punishment and penalty. This should be a warning to any corporate who might be involved in such corrupt acts and also a confidence building measure for customers of India Inc.

Now, Satyam's bank statements go missing

"It now turns out that B Ramalinga Raju and his associates may have spirited away bank statements of the company that hold clues to the massive fraud perpetrated by them."

We can understand 'Failure'. But this is serious 'Fraud'. There is difference between Failure & Fraud. Note Satyam management didn't fail - they committed fraud and have put the rest of the stakeholders in jeopardy. Have no sympathy for them.

Considering 53000 people and several thousands more (indirectly) get affected by this scam its appropriate for the govt to have stepped in and disbanded the board. SEBI should reinstate the scrip only once the accounts are cleared.

But a new board must be elected by the major stake holders and not appointed by the govt. The govt cannot be running private companies.

Further SEBI could setup a panel to investigate accounting practices in India and ensure frauds of this nature don't occur again. Perhaps they could introduce a regulation that also makes the accounting firm liable for losses suffered by investors on account of fraudulent disclosures, apart from promoters.

The govt should limit their role to remaining the regulatory authority, but leave the private sector to run itself

They are going to appoint the new board. That is different that running Satyam. Nowhere it is said that the new board appointees will be government officers. Also, if the board really ran Satyam, would it have come to this situation ?

Big corporates are subjected to Due Diligence from time to time, despite this its so surprising that scams like these happen. Goes to show how we (Indians) have learn't to evade the system and that auditing cos like PWC are also hand in glove !
