CPT passing criteria will be 30% minimum in each section & 50% aggeregate [NOT APPLICABLE FOR DEC.]

Common Proficiency Test - Proposed amendment in the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 -(30-11-2010)
The President in his column (President ’s page) in the December, 2010 issue of the Journal, `The Chartered Accountant ’ has inter-alia conveyed the decision of the Council as under: Common Proficiency Test: The Council at its 300th meeting reviewed the requirement for passing the Common Proficiency Test and decided that a candidate shall have to obtain at one sitting, a minimum of 30 per cent marks (out of maximum marks specified by the Council for each Section) and a minimum of 50 per cent marks in the aggregate of all the Sections, subject to the principle of negative marking, in a manner as may be specified by the Council from time to time subject to proposed amendments in the regulations approved by the Central Government. Upon reading the above write-up, the Institute has been receiving telephone calls from anxious students, their parents and members. It has been brought to our knowledge that SMS/email chain have started circulating giving some misinformation about the applicability of the proposal for December, 2010 CPT examination. It is hereby clarified that as mentioned in the above write-up, the decision of the Council will be made applicable only after the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 are amended by the Central Government, for which a proposal will be sent to the Central Government shortly. It is further clarified that the process of Central Government ’s approval includes consideration by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Law Ministry, consideration by the Council of ICAI of public comments on the draft amended Regulations, final approval of the proposed amendments by the Central Government and publication of the same in the Gazette of India. As such, the above decision taken by the Council, as rightly conveyed by the President, cannot and will not be made applicable for the CPT examination scheduled for 19th December, 2010. It is once again reiterated that the students and other
stakeholders should take cognizance of the official announcements only (published in the Chartered Accountants Journal, CA Students newsletter and www.icai.org )

With this full overallotment, GM has now raised $23.1 billion, outpacing Agricultural Bank of China's $22.1 billion July IPO and making GM the biggest IPO globally.

Companies for IFRS CONVERGENCE

ICAI has brought out a list of over 400 companies that should converge their accounting practices with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by April 2011. IFRS — issued by International Accounting Standards Board — is acknowledged by 113 countries. This is ICAI ’s first list and more companies would be added on its next
list, sources said. The first list comprises 439 companies. It includes BSE- Sensex companies, NSE- Nifty companies, companies
that have raised debt of over $50 million abroad, financial sector companies, publicly accountable companies (with total borrowings of over Rs 1,000 crore), Indian subsidiaries of foreign companies that have implemented IFRS at the parent company and companies outside these categories with capital of over $50 million abroad. Significantly, ICAI is mulling including venture capital funds also in the IFRS convergence process. The first list includes BSE and NSE companies (totalling 52), 44 insurance companies, 46 mutual fund companies, 37 Indian banks with presence only in India, 30 foreign banks with a presence in India, eight Indian banks with overseas branches, one Indian bank with subsidiaries or joint ventures abroad (Central bank of India) and four Indian banks with representative offices abroad. Then there are 217 companies including Air India Charters, Indian Railway Finance Corporation, Reliance Ports & Terminals, Jet Lite, Educomp Solutions, Exim Bank, TVS Motor, GMR Energy, GVK Power & Infrastructure, Godrej Industries, NHPC, RNRL, Videocon and Wockhardt. IFRS convergence will entail a change in the accounting process. Mr Rahul Roy, Director, Ernst &
Young, said, “Depending on a company’s complexity, it will need a change in its IT and ERP systems, besides management information system. Besides, companies will have to employ valuers for various valuations. ” IFRS compliance is a huge opportunity for consultants, IT companies and tax experts. The cost of compliance will range from Rs 10-12 crore for a big company to Rs 8-10 lakh for a small company. But finance professionals who have not updated their IFRS skills will become obsolete while IFRS experts will command a premium salary, Mr Roy said. Companies will have to train their accounts and finance personnel on IFRS. After IFRS convergence, benchmarking Indian companies with their global
peers will be more accurate. ICAI will hold talks on IFRS convergence with SEBI, IRDA, RBI and the Corporate Affairs Ministry on the changes in SEBI guidelines, IRDA rules and regulations, the Banking Regulation Act, Companies Act and National Advisory Committee on Accounting Standards notifications. ICAI will convene talks with companies in oil and gas, aviation, pharma and textiles to evaluate the sectoral impact. It will follow the IASB ’s programmes on converging IFRS with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. ICAI could also evolve separate and simpler IFRS norms for small and medium enterprises as such companies lack the resources to converge with IFRS.

Hope u find it benificial.

Good Information.. ;)

 


WHAT is it that's hard to break???


Diamonds are hard to find but not hard to Break.
What is the hardest thing to break then?
The answer is: HABIT!
If you break the H, you still have A BIT. If you break the A, you still have BIT. If you break the B, you still have IT!
Hey, after you break the
T in IT, there is still the 'I'.

And that (I) is the root cause of all the problems. Isn't it right?!
Now you know why HABIT is so hard to break….
Its destiny is in its name!



You think it is a frog and I think it is a horse!

Wait for a while

Moral: We have to respect each other's opinion and view; as you can see it clearly in the above picture. We just need to wait and listen actively to others' point of view!
