Sub: Procedure adopted by the Institute in shifting CA Final (Old) course students to CA Final (New) course in order to appear in CA Final Examination to be held from May, 2011 onwards.
As announced earlier on the Institute’s website, the Final (Old) examination stands discontinued with the culmination of November, 2010 examination.
Consequent upon the discontinuance of Final (Old) Course, students registered under the Final (Old) Course will be shifted to Final (New) Course automatically and for the purpose a letter to this effect will be issued to all such students - a physical letter as well as through e-mail (if available on record). No conversion fee shall be charged from such students, but the Final (New) Study Materials be issued to them at a concessional price of Rs. 300/- per subject (including Practice Manual) on production of the said letter being issued by the concerned Decentralized Offices.
This decision shall come into force from February 2, 2011, and that the students of Final (Old) Course who have already filed the prescribed form along with a sum of Rs.1,100/- to the concerned Decentralized Offices and have been issued the study material would be sent a letter as per the existing practice.
Since the process of sending physical letters may take 10-15 days and there may be chances of bouncing back of e-mails, students are advised, to save the time, if possible, to approach personally to receive the said letter so that they can purchase the Study Material on the same day at a concessional rate.
Please note that sale of Study Materials at concessional price is available upto May 15, 2011 and students are advised to utilize the facility at the earliest.
Students are also advised to submit their examination application forms in time even if they could not receive the above said letter so as to appear in the Final Examination to be held in May, 2011.
