The Supreme Court on Monday refused to include a motion raising issues regarding a notification to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) regarding CA exams scheduled for next month, saying, “We’re not here for anything to regulate ”A bench of judges AM Khanwilkar and CT Ravikumar also asked the applicant why he made an application for other (MA) in a written application previously decided by the Supreme Court.
“We refuse to consider this request. The applicant is free to request the competent authority to make the necessary changes if and when necessary, ”the bank said.
The attorney who appeared for the applicant informed the bank of the ICAI’s November 8 announcement relating to guidelines for exam centers, exam officials and candidates for the CA exams in December 2021 in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “How can you submit an MA? This is a substantial prayer. You are questioning a circular, ”remarked the bank.
The lawyer who appeared on behalf of the complainant said it was a circular in support of the June 30 order of the Supreme Court.
On June 30, the Supreme Court allowed candidates who were due to appear for the CA exams to be held in July to opt out if they or their family members suffered from COVID-19.
It had passed the order in June when it heard a series of petitions requesting various facilities, including an opt-out for candidates, postponing the exam and increasing the number of centers this year.
At the hearing on Monday, the lawyer appearing for the complainant said, on the instructions of the Supreme Court, that the examination should now take place in December.
“The situation in June 2021 was different, the situation is different now and it is evolving,” noted the bank, adding: “We are not here to regulate everything.”
The council said there was no built-in opt-out system in the November 8 notice.
“You do not have to worry. The authorities are more concerned than you, ”the bank said. The top court said that if the applicant is disadvantaged by a material decision of the competent authority, he can appeal this in an independent process.
