Apart from this, three important members of the company’s board also resigned, including GV Ravi Shankar of Peak XV Partners, Russell Dresinstock of Prosus and Vivian Wu of Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Now the command of the company is left in the hands of three people of the house.

Deloitte was appointed as the auditor of Byju’s on April 1, 2020 for 5 years. Deloitte’s term was to end on March 31, 2025. Byju’s later appointed MSKA & Associates as the new auditor.
