I have made an application to the ICAI under the Right to Information Act, 2005 to know the amount received by the ICAI by providing certified copies to the students by charging Rs. 500 per subject.
One can see from the below figures, students contributed an amount of Rs. 33 Crores (Thirty Three Crores) lion’s share to the revenue of ICAI in the past 6.5 years only by paying fee for certified copies.
But, With the landmark judgement passed by the supreme court in the case of ICSI Vs. Paras Jain, now CA Students and Members can access certified copies of the Answer sheets at FREE OF COST under the Right to Information Act, 2005. And the same was mentioned by the ICAI in their RTI reply, below is the extract of the same for your reference.
So, utilize the opportunity given by the law laid down by the supreme court and get your certified copies of the answer sheets under the RTI at free of cost. And I have published an article briefing the RTI process, you may read the same from the below link:
I have reproduced the figures from the data received under the RTI, you can download the official copy of the ICAI’s reply under the RTI Act, 2005 from the below link
