“The revised course intends to promote innovation and bring about out-of-the-box thinking in the curriculum and education system of chartered accountancy course,” ICAI President Nilesh Shivji Vikamsey said last month. The changes are being introduced as ICAI has completed 68 years as on July 1 and so as to fit into the competitive scenario of global business.

The new subjects are being included at the foundation and intermediate levels and students appearing for final exams will have the option of choosing electives.
