Scary! The extent of coverup is unbelievable.

Arent the Auditors who signed off these obviously fudged Balance Sheets going to be hauled up? People who pocket large sums of money and bug employees for months before signing off on such large coverups?

Looks like the 'Satyam' was only in the name - everything else was Asatyam.

With the current global economic situation and Satyam's current fate, do you guys foresee the Satyamites coming into the market hunting for other jobs? What would be their chances?

The biggest irony is that Satyam had won the 'Golden Peacock' award for excellence in corporate governance in Sept 2008. And this was not an Indian award -- but a Global award for corporate governance.

How ironical!!!

Nope. Best bet for Satyamites is to wait. There are many big players, private investment firms waiting for stake in Satyam. Change in management will turn Satyam into different company. New management might 'right-size' the company. Except that fear, its paid holiday for Satyamites.

Now the Maytas takeover makes sense.

I guess most IT companies will now come under the radar of SEBI/ITax. In a time when the economy is almost down and jobs are indeed scarce, I really wonder what will happen to the 50k employees of Satyam.

Rs.5040 crores has been inflated in the company's balance sheet which is incrediable. I feel the auditors and the bankers should be hand in glove with this guy. Otherwise inflating of such a whopping figures is not possible. Hope the actual culprits will be booked and tried.

Sensex is reeling at 658 points down due to this.
