    It is very hard to survive in the pune city by having stipend of Rs. 2000. We cant even end up with our food requirement. I stay in hostel. So we should get at least Rs.5000 pm.

  2. Sanjay Sukhija says:

    it is unfortunate C A Articles even not consider equivalent to unskilled labor

    1000 or 2000 even old age pension is more then in Delhi

    our department of labor welfare is sleeping they must ask CA INSTITUTE MAKE IT

    8500 per month


  3. Sanjay Sukhija says:

    we must pay our trainee and article as per the rate of skilled labor of every state

    CA institute did not consider even unskilled labor

  4. priya says:

    hello everyone,

    I agree with all of your comments regarding transfer and stipend. the amount of stipend should be at least 5k to 8k and restrictions on transfer should be removed as well as proper attendance should be maintained. there may be some students who are not interested to learn and there may be ca’s who treat us like slaves but people should recognize who is what? not all ca’s are same and not all students are same.Not only ICAI but even students and CA’s should take initiative to encourage the profession.KINDLY LET ME KNOW WHEN DOES IT COME INTO FORCE???

    Servant @ 1000/- go door to door to find article ship. Than listen dialogues. 3 sal majduri, kaam tikode lagana.

  7. kamlesh panchal says:

    when will it get its applicability

  8. ronak says:

    Whether above draft has been implemented/ passed?

  9. rohit says:

    when it will be applicable.

  10. vinit says:

    agar kisi ko stipend milta hi nhi ho to unke liye kuch provision batao.
    in udaipur(rajasthan) 60% not get stipend.

  11. lipika says:

    But still need to modify. As according to ICAI we shall be trained in this 3 years of articleship but the truth is we are just the servents for thouse CA firms provided by ICAI. N one more thing if we work in any other place for 1year that will be treated as experience but not this articleship period, even can get more that 5000 at starting.. N the transfer is totally depend on principal if he disagree or write any thing wrong to the transfer form our carrier will be destroyed. ICAI members, “you never actually think for the student”.

  12. saloni says:

    Increament in stipend should be made as soon as possible.

  13. khushboo says:

    Increment in the stipend should be made applicable as soon as possible. ICAI should understand that Rs.1000 is very nominal amount as compared to the hardwork & time given by the students. Its just not worthy for the time denoted by the articles, so stipend should be increased soon which also motivates the articles to perform better.
