Petition has been filed in the Supreme Court challenging the June 5 notification issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) concerning Chartered Accountant (CA) exams.
The notification has been criticized as it does not give students the choice to opt out before and during the exams and to carry forward all the benefits.
It was contented that an extra attempt to be given to the candidates who are appearing for the intermediate and final exams under the old syllabus.
Further, it was prayed for postponement of the scheduled CA exams from July 6 to any later period when the COVID-19 situation normalizes, or until after teachers, students and invigilators are vaccinated.
Moreover, free transport and accommodation for students along with covid-19 test for all the students, teachers and invigilators was prayed before the Court.
