    While I do not agree wih the move by the Institute , what baffles me is why qualified CA’s do not apply for Membership which bestows rightfully all benefits . Asking Members who apply for restoration of Membership , is a backward step. How can a CA become ineligible? Does he Institute think that he would have lost all his knowledge and skills? Strange!
