Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is set to change the Charted Accountancy syllabus so as to make it more industry friendly. The committee has been made which is working on to prepare a new syllabus. According to a newspaper report, vice-president of ICAI Manoj Fadnis, said that from 2016, the whole syllabus for CA proficiency test to CA final will be changed. Other than this, CA final-year students will be given 100 hours of IT training so that they are capable enough to seek jobs outside India. Also, the writers for disabled candidates will be given computers to help them appear for the exams. During the event 700 candidates from all over the country were awarded with a degree of Chartered Accountant. ICAI president K Raghu urged the fresher CAs to give their contributions to nation building. At present, the ICAI has 147 branches and over 8,50,000 members across the country.
