NEW DELHI: Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has allowed the provisional registration for Class 10 students in CA Foundation exams. The Institute got the approval of the Government of India for changing the 25E, 25F & 28F of Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988
ICAI had submitted a proposal for amending the relevant regulations of the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 w.r.t. “Change in Entry Requirement” after receiving various requests from the stakeholders.
CA. Atul Kumar Gupta, President, ICAI said “The Institute has recently got the approval of Government of India for amending the Regulations 25E, 25F & 28F of Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 which now enables the candidate to provisionally register in the Foundation Course of ICAI after passing Class 10 examinations. However, provisional admission to Foundation course will only be regularized once the candidate clears Class 12 exams.”
