PCC OR IPCC

CA & CS Final


Hi Everybody,

ICAI has announced new scheme for CA course: CPT-IPCC-Final, obviously new scheme is reducing 6 months of articleship but what about that extra one year practice under Any CA to get ATC certificate.

Previously this degree takes only 2 months for CPT & after that 3.5 yrs. of articleship toatal around 4 yrs. but now don't you think that 9 months for IPCC & 1 year training after that 3 yrs. of articleship so total is almost 5 yrs.

plz guide me i m totally confused what should i opt as i have appeared for CPT in this dec 2008...what should i do next...as i want to complete it in minimum time...plz refer me PCC OR IPCC?

Thnaks & Regards

Ganga Agarwal

I think 1 year of training is for ATC. For CA course, its only 3 years of articleship and training is included in it. It is still 4 years. Please confirm it

Dear All,

Proposal

The IPCC  

The ICAI has now proposed to amend the regulations (Notification dated September 1, 2008) so that henceforth to do articleship the candidate has to pass both the CPT and Group I of the proposed Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) .

This course has three levels — Group I, Accounting Technician (optional) and Group II. A candidate enrolled for the IPCC shall be eligible to three years articleship on passing the Group I or Accounting Technician level.

The regulation is silent about the number of papers and the details of the syllabus of these Groups and that of Accounting Technician course.

A reading of the regulation indicates that it is nothing but a throw back to the erstwhile Foundation or PE-I examination. Quite ironically the regulation has been notified along with the proposed Accounting Technician course but a candidate passing Group II of the proposed IPCC course is not permitted to register for articleship.

The articleship period in effect is reduced to three years but the minimum time for completing the course will be four years as against the existing three-and-a-half years.
