(CA Exams 2020)

Supreme Court to hear a plea seeking adherence to safety guidelines and protocol in place while conducting #CAexams
SC had earlier asked petitioners to discuss grievances with @theicai 's counsel Ramji Srinivasan to iron out issues

Senior Adv Ramji Srinivasan: We are strictly in accordance with MHA guidelines. They needed isolation rooms, but we can't put to risk 5 lacs students by having such rooms as this exam is for 18 days. We can't risk with #COVID patients coming in
Srinivasan: transport and accommodation was sought but that is not possible. We will request that e admit cards be allowed to take hotels etc. We need to ask the @HMOIndia

SC: It will be state specific issue too. Earlier suggestion was made and states agreed..
Srinivasan: We cannot allow online exams with descriptive answers for three hours. Not a tick mark exam.

SC: How can this be allowed? Just because courts are allowing this, you cannot keep on asking what you want. Be reasonable in your demands.
SC: If there is a lapse it will be addressed but exams in the past have been handled well.

Srinivasan: we always have a Plan B and in case there is an emergency we will look into it
SC to petitioners: we are not impressed by your submissions. You are saying students hand will perspire while writing exams, such things will happen if you want to excel in the exams.
Bansuri Swaraj: they need to make an announcement for how exams will be held in containment exams

Srinivasan: panic is being created among the students

SC: All the response that you have given to the petitioners for grievances, please put up on the website
SC: you may have a different format but you put up all the points. We need not say anything more.

Order: ICAI has agreed to notify on website steps to be taken by the Institute for the students welfare. Most of the issues have been examined and steps taken and ...
SC:..Measures will be published in the press release to be put up on the website. Case disposed off.
Supreme Court observes that these students appearing in #CAexams are appearing for professional examinations and that they should gear up themselves and not ask for such concessions.
