A brief note to the Supreme Court by ICAI said, the number of COVID-19 cases as on date is comparatively less and thus it would be in the best interest of the candidates if the examination is conducted as per the schedule and not Exams should be canceled or postponed.
The note also said that CA exams are professional exams which cannot be compared with the 10th or 12th exams conducted by CBSE or other state boards. A bench of Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice Aniruddha Bose said on Monday that the matter related to the upcoming CA Exam 2021 will be heard on Tuesday.
The top court has asked the ICAI to respond to the suggestions made by the petitioners in three separate writ petitions seeking moderation in the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the July 5 examination.
Three separate petitions have been filed by Satya Narayan Perumal, Anubha Srivastava Sahai and a group of CA candidates. The petitioners questioned the June 5 notification issued by ICAI on the ground that it did not give the option to the students to opt out and carry forward all benefits before and during the examination.
The petitions sought postponement of the CA exam till the COVID-19 situation normalizes or the teachers, students and invigilators are vaccinated.
