With a vast increase in Covid-19 cases the ICAI has postponed the CA exams to November of this year:

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has took a decision to postpone the CA exams to the November of this year to ensure the safety of its students and in increase of the Covid-19 cases in the territory. The decision ensured that the students interest won’t be affected at all and initiated to cancel the May exams of 2020 and merge them with November exams of 2020. The order even contained that all the benefits to the students including fees paid and exceptions will continue to be availed.

Earlier this week the Supreme Court had provided time to the ICAI to asses whether in the midst of the present situation it’s safe to conduct the May 2020 examinations and contact all exam centres whether the situation is under control or not.

On the previous hearing the Court opined the  ICAI that the students should be provided with an option to opt out of the exam till the last day of the examination as the the situation in prevalence is a dynamic one and not static.

A petition was moved in later on challenging such notification of the ICAI as stated in the petition being a violation of Articles 14 and 21 of the constitution as presented by the petitioner’s.

The petitioner was represented by Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava and ICAI was represented by Senior Advocate Ramji Srinivasan instructed by Advocate Pramod Dayal.
