New Delhi: The In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants of In­dia (ICAI) has de­cided to con­sti­tute a high-level in­de­pen­dent com­mit­tee to look into the ex­am­i­na­tion process reg­u­la­tions gov­ern­ing the CA ex­am­i­na­tions.

The de­ci­sion by the in­sti­tute fol­lows protest by stu­dents al­leg­ing that the eval­u­a­tion process is faulty. The stu­dents have been protest­ing out­side the of­fice for the past few days.

It is a five-mem­ber com­mit­tee with two for­mer pres­i­dents of ICAI, a for­mer judge of Supreme Court of In­dia, Anil R Dave, PC Jain as the govern­ment nom­i­nee and ed­u­ca­tion­ist Girish Ahuja. Rakesh Se­h­gal, the act­ing sec­re­tary of ICAI, is the sec­re­tary of the com­mit­tee.

The state­ment by the in­sti­tute said, “ICAI has de­cided to con­sti­tute a com­mit­tee to look into the pro­cesses, in­clud­ing Reg­u­la­tion 39(4) of the Char­tered Ac­coun­tants Reg­u­la­tions, 1988 and sug­gest changes wher­ever re­quired.”

The pres­i­dent of the ICAI, Pra­fulla Ch­ha­jed, ad­dressed a press con­fer­ence on Thurs­day and stressed that the eval­u­a­tion process followed by ICAI en­sures mul­ti­ple lev­els of mon­i­tor­ing for qual­ity eval­u­a­tion of an­swer­sheets. “Stu­dents will be given an op­por­tu­nity to ap­pear be­fore the com­mit­tee. They can also pro­vide a roadmap of the changes they want to bring in the ex­am­i­na­tion and eval­u­a­tion process,” he said. Ac­cord­ing to the ad­min­is­tra­tion, de­spite the protest, just 130 stu­dents had ap­plied for recheck­ing.
