Transparency, especially for an NGO, is the key to trust and reliability. Akshaya Patra hence upholds absolute transparency in all its activities.

For this purpose, we comply with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The IFRS reporting which was adopted in 2008-09 has contributed substantially in building confidence amongst the stakeholders of the organisation.

We also comply with the Indian Accounting Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and are up to date on accounting standards. At the end of each financial year an Annual Report with financial audits and statements is published and made available to the stakeholders.
