A PIL has been filed before the Supreme Court challenging the pattern and mode of the Intermediate and Final CMA Exams which is scheduled to be conducted online on 8th December by Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICMAI).

The petitioners have sought quashing of the Intermediate and Final exam 2021 as unconstitutional, null And void as it violates Articles14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India and hence void ab initio

The petitioners have also sought directions to ICMAI to conduct the Intermediate and Final exam 2021 in offline mode.

The petitioners have challenged the examination pattern citing the following reasons:

  • The institute has been changing the pattern suo moto, without sharing any official notification in there official sites regarding changes in exams patterns.
  • Institute has changed the said exam pattern thrice in last one month which creates a lot of confusion and chaos in the minds of the candidates/students.
  • The latest pattern or exam mode which is issued by the Institute is not at all feasible as per the study material released by the Institute.
  • The recent pattern shows that lot more typing of answers will be required for which candidates are not ready or practiced so far.
  • The practical problems such as theory papers which has long answers as per the latest pattern will not be possible within given time.
  • The time limit fixed by the Institute is 3 hours, which would make it impossible for students to complete the exam as most of the candidates are well versed and practiced in writing upon pen and paper.
  • As per the present pattern for exam the Fundamental rights of Hindi Medium candidates are being taken away by the authorities as it is not at all possible to type answers of subjective questions in a given time of 3 hours in Hindi

The petition has been filed through Advocates Arup Banerjee, Alok Singh, Ankit Borker, Vinay Ahrodiya.
