Hi friends hi had the same query, and i have asked the same to cpedadmin @ icai.in
i am posting my query and the reply which i received.
I got enrolled as a member of ICAI in april 2013 and I am not holding COP. pls resolve my following queries
1) Is a new member exempted from completing min.10 CPE hours in his first year of membership?
2) In my case, am I still required to complete 45 CPE hours in the time left out of 3yr rolling period 2011 - 2013 ie. .45 hrs between april 13 to Dec 2013? Please reply as 2013 Year end is nearing and I would have to complete the CPE hours requirement for 2013 accordingly.
REPLY TO THE ABOVE:
In first year of getting membership cpe compliance is not mandatory. Hence, you are exempted in calendar year 2013. Comply cpe guidelines in next block of three years which will start from 1.1.2014 to 31.12.2016
