Direct Government Holding
CG + SG holdings >= 51% or More

Indirect Government Holding
CG + SG + Other Government Company holdings >= 51% or More

In both above cases CAG will appoint auditor.

Now in this example holdings are of municipal corporations or  development authority which fall under local governments. They are not CG or SG. Auditor will be appointed as per company act by shareholders. CAG wont come in picture because it is not falling under government company definition directly or indirectly.
