Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a revised syllabus for Chartered Accountancy students from July 1 this year, according to the former president of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), G Ramaswamy, who claimed that the number of students pursuing CA will increase in the next few months due to tax reforms.
There are currently more than two lakh Chartered Accountants (CA) in India and at least one lakh more professionals are in demand, Ramaswamy said in Coimbatore as reported by The Hindu. ICAI council member Supriya Kumar said that the syllabus will be reviewed regularly and all levels of the course will witness changes. The course will be structured in phases to make it easier for students to understand. Read | ICAI IPCC exam 2016 results out, Pune’s Rekha Ghevarram Suthar tops the exam, click here
