ICAI launches Flexi Working Portal for Women Members

Portal_for_Women_MembersIn this knowledge era, when gender doesn’t matter as much as talent and expertise do, more and more women turn into professionals and are proving their mettle by playing an important role in every sphere of business and industry nationally as well as internationally.  Indian accountancy profession is no exception to this phenomenon.

Today,  ICAI  can  boast  of  women comprising  21.1%  of  the  total  membership and girls students  comprise of 36%  share  of  active  students. As on date, there are approx 48,658 women members. It is indeed commendable that women accountants are consistently leaving their mark of excellence on corporate world while more and more young CA girl students are making it to merit list of CA examinations very frequently.

The immense  potential  that lies  embedded  in  these  encouraging  numbers  is still  vastly  untapped  and  needs  to  be  harnessed, strengthened   and   empowered   further   in   the interest  of  CA   profession,  our  society  and   nation. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) believes that to tap the enormous potential of women professionals, there is a need to help them find flexible working conditions so that they can pro-actively contribute towards the growth of CA profession and also towards the economy at large, while simultaneously managing their commitments at domestic front.

CA. K Raghu, President ICAI, said ” Women are  skilled at multitasking, and they  tend  to  take  a  larger  share  of  responsibility wherever they are, including in our profession. As such, if we empower women, we actually empower ourselves. As the leader of the Indian accountancy profession, I am particularly alive to this cause.”

To provide the women members a medium through which they can explore suitable opportunities which provide part time jobs, jobs with flexi hours or jobs with work from home option, ICAI has recently  launched a ‘Flexi Working Portal for Women Members’. Besides providing  job opportunities, it will also have important announcements of ICAI, details of events, success stories and articles by women professionals, and feature a section on health tips. This portal will not only serve the interest of women members but will also enable CA Firms and industry to tap talent pool which might not be accessible otherwise in normal course.

To make effective use of this new initiative the members are required to post job requirement(s) having option to work part time or flexi hours on this portal ( This portal will serve the best interest of both the job seekers and employers.

CA. K Raghu, President ICAI, added, “Providing part time/ flexi hours option will be very cost effective to our practicing members specially SMPs who look for addition human resources during peak audit season like corporate audit, bank audit, tax audit etc.”

Mandate Accounting Standards To Educational Institutes – ICAI

Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has presented a report on accounting standards to HRD Minister. ICAI recommended the accounting standards to be made mandatory for educational institutions in India.

Shah, Vice-President, ICAI, CA. Amarjit Chopra, Chairman, Professional Development Committee and representatives from the school and university sector besides experts in accounting.

(i) to define transparently the revenue earned through various sources – tuition fees and other charges, income from consultancy or from intellectual property owned by the institution (for higher educational institutions) etc;

(ii) to recognize segment reporting of accounts (each school under the same institution being considered as a separate segment for accounting purposes);

(iii) to recognize costs and revenue separately for UG and PG programmes and for research and teaching activities;

(iv) to define relevant financial ratios derived from accounts for inter se comparison on research to total expenditure, income from fees to total income, salary expenditure to total expenditure etc). These ratios could enable greater understanding of funding needs especially in respect of government funding.

(v) to identify if surpluses are being generated and the manner in which the surpluses are utilized or invested;
