Giving its final ruling in the CA exams in 2021, the Supreme Court today directed ICAI to come up with an option that includes all Covid-19-controlled students. The panel also clarified that without the exit option all points mentioned in the SOP will remain unchanged. Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Aniruddha Bose listened to an application filed by AnubhavShrivastavaSahai in reference to the postponement of the CA July 2021 exams and many other things.
ICAI filed a lawsuit against SOP this morning after it cited all the complaints raised by students. The high court heard all the arguments raised about the SOP filed in relation to the CA exams. The SOP was written and filed according to various points as requested by SC. However, the Bench found it inadequate and therefore requested ICAI to add points as stated in the order.
The court ordered ICAI to add the following points to the exit option offered to CA students: Medical conditions: The court has asked ICAI to provide exit for students themselves or other family members of their Covid-19 patients. The RT-PCR report will not be compulsory and a doctor's certificate will be deemed valid. Those people will be allowed to repeat old and new courses by 2021 depending on the circumstances. The court also clarified that if a baptismal candidate receives COVID during the test cycle, he or she will be allowed to leave and will not be considered an effort.
They can appear in the tests for the November cycle. Provisional support: The court has ordered ICAI to adhere to Covid-19's strict guidelines for conducting tests. In the event of a last-minute change of test facilities due to content placement, candidates will be allowed to opt out of the test. In that case, the efforts will not be counted and the candidates could appear in the November trial.
The court held that the current state of COVID in the country is similar to the time when the court allowed ICAI to hold tests in November, 2020 and there is no reason to believe it will not take adequate precautionary measures. The Supreme Court has made it clear that it has no intention of changing the rules laid down in that way and that the decision has been made in the light of Covid-19 related SOPs.
The CA test was conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) in May. The tests have been postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic and are now scheduled to take place from July 5 to July 20.
