Timely distribution of study material to students
The Additional Secretary,
Board of Studies,
Institute of Chartered Accountants of India
I am student of the Institute of Chartered Accounts of India and I am writing this petition on behalf of the students in my city. This petition as the title suggests is about the distribution of study material to the students.
ICAI distributes the books through its various branches for the convenience of students. However, the problem that students are facing is that the August/ September print edition do not come to these branches even by December. The students giving exams in the month of May have serious trouble preparing for the exams since they are left with only 4 months roughly by the time they receive the books.
This has become an epidemic issue and we understand that there are logistical difficulties in transferring the books since it is not an easy task to estimate the number of students per branch requiring the books. We suggest that this issue can be overcome by asking the students to pre book their study material in their respective branches in the month of Sept/ Oct so that atleast by the month of November latest they have the books in their hand. Every day that a student wastes running behind the material essentially means 12 hours of study time wasted on an average.
We are all professional students and we do not intend to flood the official emails by mass complaints. Hence, we have tried to consolidate all the complaints in a single petition. We have asked the students to sign this petition vouching for the facts that have been mentioned above. Looking forward to a long term solution from the institute.
