ICAI Imposes 5-Year Ban on Candidates for Mobile Phone Use in CA Exams

As per the policy of Examination Department of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, among others, possession of Mobile Phone or any other electronic device / gadgets are strictly prohibited inside the examination centre during Chartered Accountants Examinations.

During May 2024 Chartered Accountants Examinations, it was observed that certain examinees were found in the physical possession of the Mobile Phone and some telegram group/WhatsApp group/other channels of communication were found in their mobile phones. All the mobile phones were confiscated, and reports were taken from the Examination Centre and other Functionaries.

The Examination Committee of the Institute, has taken a serious view of above and decided to debar all such candidates, who were involved in tarnishing the image of the Institute by taking mobile phones inside the examination hall, for the next 5 years from appearing in the Chartered Accountants Examinations.

In view of the above, students are advised to go through the Instructions to Examinees provided along with the admit card, carefully and familiarize themselves with the same to ensure the compliance in letter and spirit.
