New Delhi: As the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) releases the admit cards for CA foundation, inter and final exams that are scheduled for July, students across the country took on Twitter and again urged the institute to include an opt-out facility in the CA May/July session exam and allowing the candidates to carry forward their candidature with an extra attempt other than the November 2021 attempt.
CA aspirants are also urging the institute to postpone the exams in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and running a social media campaign on Twitter using #caexams, #caexam, #justiceforcaaspirants, #justiceforca_students, #justiceforcaaspirants, #justiceforca_students, #caexams, #icaiexamspostponement, #postponecaexams.
Over 6,000 students wrote to the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana urging him to take Suo moto cognizance of students’ demands including an opt-out option for all students affected by COVID-19 or consequences of COVID-19, an extension of the old course, and additional attempts for ICAI CA students.
6000 students are knocking the doors of Supreme Court for some really genuine issues.
