Dear Professional Colleagues,

On a short notice myself and Vice President had a meeting with Additional Secretary and other officials of Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Cost Audit Branch, wherein s preliminary discussion on different issues, as pointed out in annexure I&II of the letter dated 2nd July 2014 addressed to Secretary, MCA, was held.

It was suggested by the Additional Secretary, MCA that the major structural issues will be looked after by a High Level Committee and other issues be resolved by the MCA and Cost Audit Branch in consultation with the Institute. We reiterated the stand of the Institute to put the Companies (Cost Records and Audit) Rules 2014 in abeyance till the issues are resolved and allow the Cost Rules 2011/2012 to continue till that time.

Myself, Vice President and CMA Chandra Wadhwa, Past President and Member of the Technical Committee met the Hon’ble Minister for Finance, Defence and Corporate Affairs at 2100 hours in his office chamber at North Block and submitted a representation letter, presentation and resignation letter of President and members of the Central Council dated 2nd July 2014, expressing concerns of the profession on the Companies (Cost Records and Audit) Rules 2014. The Hon’ble minister has assured that during next weekend, after the budget exercise is over, a meeting with the MCA Officials and Institute’s representatives will be called by him to sort out the issues.

    Very immature behavior from ICAI-CMA council. This the second time in last 5 years this happened. ICAI-CMA using resignation as the weapon. It didnt work last time while changing the name of the institute from ICWAI to ICMAI, just has to see if it works this time or not.

  2. Anirudha Bhat says:

    MCA has not taken in confidence or accepted the suggestions from ICSI, ICAI and CMA, who had given suggestions, held discussions and were given assurances by the officials of MCA while introducing the Companies Act, 2013, finalizing Rules, Forms under the Companies Act, 2013.

    Professionals are facing lot of hardship in filing Forms, while website, now maintained by INFOSYS, is making professionals frustrated.

    The Central Council of CMA could have given another opportunity to the Minister, who has taken over recently, as he has inherited the ills and wrong doings of Congress Government.
