It is of no relevance to uniformise ITT and Orientation Programmes, they both are two separate activities carried under the domain of ICAI, that has to be compulsarily underwent by the student.
The following points will justify myr answer:
1. ITT is of 100 Hours, whereas Orientation is of 35 Hours.
2. ITT is Technical and it requires lots of practice, whereas Orientation is Non-Technical and subjective area, wher rather than practice, personal, inter and intra communication skills matters.
3. ITT examination is taken in various THREE stages i. e. Module Test, Practical Test and Online Test, whereas it is not so with the Orientation Programme.
4. ITT is an area that endures lots of benefit to a student in their curriculum (subjects like Information Technology) as well, whereas Orientation helps in communication skills and personality development of a student.
Thus, my dear friend, it is of no use in trying to syncronize the NO. OF DAYS for ITT and/or Orientation.
