Dear Expert,

An auditor of a company, appointed to appoint the books of accounts for the period 2016-17, resigns on the last day of March 2017. Does this create casual vacancy in the office of the auditor in the company?

And if so, by when should we fill this casual vacancy? In other words, by when should we appoint another auditor in our case?
