ICAI demands Chartered Accountancy Certificate be treated at par with graduate and Post-Graduate Degree

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has sought intervention of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India in designating Chartered Accountancy qualification as equivalent to Post-graduation and CA-Intermediate to be treated equivalent to Graduate degree in the University education system.

The move will not only help CA’s for pursuing higher studies but will also facilitate the mobility of Indian CAs globally as well for supporting the overall national cause of providing best quality professionals and academicians to the world at large.

The Association of Indian Universities (AIU) in a letter dated 20th March, 1984 had recognized Chartered Accountancy (CA) along with Graduation to be equivalent to a Post Graduate degree in Commerce or allied disciplines for the purpose of registration to Ph.D. Accordingly, 101 Indian Universities, 6 IIMs and 2 IITs have recognized Chartered Accountancy qualification for the specific purpose of registration to Ph.D. programme.
