To be precisely clear, consider these words from section 141 of the companies act, 2013

Sec 141. The following persons shall not be eligible for appointment as an auditor of a company, namely:

g. a person who is in full time employment elsewhere or a person or a partner of a firm holding appointment as its auditor, if such persons or partner is at the date of such appointment or reappointment holding appointment as auditor of more than twenty companies;

Analyzing the situation where a chartered accountant is allowed 20 clients if he is not employed full time elsewhere. This means Mr. K is not eligible, and Mr C and K get 20 audits each.

Hence the company can not accept the audit of the said public company as it shall exceed their client limit of 20 clients each.

KBC & Co. a firm of Chartered Accountants has three partners, namely, Mr. K, Mr. B &Mr. C. Mr. K is also in whole time employment elsewhere and Mr. B & Mr. C. do not holdany audits in their personal capacity or as partners of other firms.
