  • ICAI CA protest: If Art 370 can go, why can't exam rules change

    he busy ITO crossing here has been witnessing a great crowd since Monday as chartered accountant (CA) aspirants have taken to the streets, demanding amendments in the exam regulations to add re-checking.

    "When the country can abrogate Article 370 (of the Constitution), how difficult it is to make changes in a small exam law for the benefit of the students," Vineet, one of the students protesting outside the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India at the ITO, said.

    Claiming that the evaluation of answer sheets was not done properly, the students have been camping out the Institute between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., saying there should be a change in the regulations to allow re-checking of the answer sheets, not just a re-evaluation.

    A 27-year-old student from Uttar Pradesh said he spent last 5-6 years preparing for the exam, and rued spending long years without being able to clear the paper.
    The students have been demanding amendment of Section 39 (4) of The Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1998, which says the aspirants can only apply for re-evaluation and not re-checking.

    "We are only provided information on whether our answer has been marked or not. We cannot do anything even if we feel we are marked less for some answers. There is no provision for us to do anything if we feel we are given fewer marks," Gautam, who has been giving the exam for the past eight years, said.
