  1. CMA Biswanath Mohapatra says:

    Now, it becomes the duty of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs to change the name clause of the Institute of Cost Accountants of India as the Institute of Cost & Management Accountant of India or The Institute of Certified Management Accountant of India legally, constitutionally and technically for acronym of ICMAI and also to change the name clause of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India as the Institute of Accountants of India or The Institute of Certified Accountants of India in the like circumstances under the constitutional mandate in different counts . It is to be noted that past century practice of the existing ability now becomes a trite under article 14.Further, the straight jacket principle like the accountant definition of the Income tax Act can not be accepted as per law of Evidence.

    1. CMA SANJAY KUMAR says:

      The word “Chartered” does not describe the concern. In place of Chartered ,”Financial” do describe the concern ,for which CAs are known. Therefore ICAI must be for “The Institute of Cost Accountants of India” and IFAI for “The Institute of Financial Accountants of India” not ICAI.

  2. SURESH SINGH SOUNTYAL says:

    I suggest Institute of Cost Accountant’s of India to use salutation Certified Accountant, with short form as CA.

    It is the only solution.

  3. Kamath says:

    why people feeling insecure. Instead they should make the qualified CAs more professional rather than just adjusting with the tax officers to close the cases . (not all , but most )

    1. NAINA MOHAMED says:

      CA is still maintaining their quality.Why are you blaming others ? If you are genuine you need not adjust with anyone .
