  2. Alok kathuria says:

  3. Himanshu Jaggi says:

    Whats the need to make fun of the articles…is 2500 is enough for a thirt year article
    institute is just treating the students as labour. .a labour gets more than us in a day

  4. Ravi Garg says:

    Its relatively too low, and it should be minimum of 25000/- P.m.

  5. Yashoda says:

    For ca after from 01.04.2012 admission how much want to pay.

  6. nik says:

    What is the use od double or triple the stipend. In actuality we never get a single Penny ….for me it is better to remove Stipend so that no one get any expectation about it .
    This double and Triple of Stipend it always seem like a Joke

  7. hitesh patel says:

    lol….. whether u double it or trible it, they ll pay according to their convenience only..

  8. hari priya says:

    what is use of increase in the stipend ? strictly speaking icai is not implementing the rules accordingly, it is collecting the huge money from the number of students even it is also collecting for the campus selections

  9. Saajan H Jain says:

    by doubling the stipend institute has done great job but as articleship is just cheap labour for Practising CA & Slavery for Article assistants Bcoz for class of ITT,Advance ITT ,2 GMCS,Orientation Program we pay around Rs.25000 to 30000 which is almost 1 and half year stipend for Article assistants

  10. Jeeva says:

    It is serious issue. Many of the Article are doing the practice in Metros and staying alone to get more exposure during the period. Hence Institute must hike the present rates for METROS. Must take an consider the survival cost too….

    Hope you consider and review soon.

  11. Anonymous says:

    seriously,if someone says paying Rs.3000 for an article is not affordable probably. They should not practice. Will you get any person of any qualification for less than Rs.3000 Please do not treat articles like cheap labour

  12. Melvin Joseph says:

    Good initiative

  13. manjunath says:

    its very less for a article student raise some more money minimum 3000 to 5000 from 1st year to 3rd year

  15. Unnati says:

    Whether it is applicable from Draft Official Gazette i.e. 10.09.2014 or 23.01.2015

  16. A. MUKHOPADHYAY says:

    THE PRESENT LEVEL OF FEES SUGGESTED WILL BE A HARDSHIP FOR SMALL PROPRIETORSHIP AND PARTNERSHIP FIRMS IN METRO CITIES LIKE KOLKATA. SUGGEST FOR 20% TO 30% HIKE, WHICH IS AFFORDABLE. REQUEST FOR REVIEW OF THE DRAFT NOTIFICATION.
