CA Exams 2020: ICAI to initiate legal action against candidates sending threat mails to exam centres

New Delhi: The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has warned candidates appearing for CA exams against sending threat mails to examination centres, saying legal action will be initiated for such misdemeanour.

In a statement, the ICAI said, "It has been reported by some examination centres that they are receiving threatening e-mails from some of the candidates appearing for the CA Examination scheduled for November."

"The institute has viewed such misdemeanour by the candidates very seriously. It amounts to interfering in the examination process of the Institute which is a statutory function under the provisions of the Chartered Accountants Act, 1949," its said.

Action has already been initiated in accordance with law against some such students, the institute said.

The CA aspirants were reminded that the institute had issued comprehensive guidelines last month to examination centres, functionaries and candidates in compliance with government guidelines with focus on social distancing, thermal scanning and sanitisation.

The ICAI has also created a Google forum for the benefit of the students to raise any issue relating to the examination.

"Therefore, if any candidate is found writing any threatening mails directly to the examination centres, such action will be viewed seriously and the institute does not hesitate to take action for such misdemeanour by the students. Examination centres have already been directed to bring such instances to the notice of the Institute with details of such candidates like name and student registration number for our necessary action.

"Therefore, students are advised to cease and desist from indulging in such irregular acts in their own interest," it added.
