Supreme Court rejects demand to postpone CA exam, know when the exam will be held


The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a petition seeking postponement of the examinations conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) given the Lok Sabha elections. The petitioner had argued that holding the examination on election days could create various difficulties for students, including travel problems, crowding near polling stations, and security concerns. However, the Supreme Court refused to accept this argument saying that there is no conflict between the dates of examination and elections.

What the court said:

The court clarified that students should plan their voting based on the examination schedule. Additionally, the court noted that ICAI has already made arrangements to assist in such situations.
