Roving Inquiry means applying without verifying whether there is requirement or panel maintained by authority.
Empanelment where CA is aware about panel is not guilty.
These are 2 separate points, below are 2 separate points from our book
Roving Inquiry Circular
It is not permissible for a member to address letters or circulars to
persons who are likely to require services of a Chartered Accountant since it would tantamount to advertisement.
Applying for empanelment
–> CA can apply if he has information regarding existence of panel.
–> Mention fees (only if asked
–>  No cyclostated (pre-printed) copies of fees
