A corporate fraud happens when a company intentionally alters its information to increase its market position. It can happen even when an employee of an organization, with his or her knowledge, commits fraud through embezzlement, corruption, or making false expense claims for financial benefit. According to the Report of the Nation's 2016 global Fraud Survey, fraud costs an average organization 5% of its revenue in a given year. Scams are a part of business history in India. It has the potential to be disastrous for the organization, its stakeholders, and the broader public. Certain sections about corporate fraud have been incorporated into the revised edition of the Companies Act, 2013, which encapsulates the idea of fraud and includes provisions for severe punishment.
