CA Articleship Stipend Rates Increased to Double from Jan 2015

CA Articleship Stipend Rates Doubled:

In a latest move to to sever the cause of CA students, ICAI increased the stipend rates. The wait of lacs of CA student came to its end as ICAI finally increased stipend rates of CA articleship to double and its applicable from 23rd Jan 2015 itself.

CA Articleship is compulsory 3 years training which every CA students have to undergo for becoming a CA. There is lot of confusion in the article assistant about CA Articleship stipend rates. So, here I am posting the current CA articleship stipend rates applicable in India. You would have knowing that stipend amount varies as per the city population. There is a common complaint in article assistant that stipend amount is very low, so ICAI president had said in one convocation that Articleship stipend will be increased by 2.5 to 3 Times last year, and now its applicable. We strongly recommended that CA Articleship stipend must be increased because the current stipend rate is much lower (may be compatible to salary of Sweeper, if I am not wrong, what you say??). Check the more details about CA Articleship stipend below.

    i think it should be 3000/6000/10000 or more than that atleast our travelling should cover

    1. Yes there is a scope for reasonable increase. But if one is hardworking then naturally he will get placed in an accounts department after the articleship training. Now people are spending Lakhs and lakhs for BE and MBA and after that their present market is Rs.6000/- only . so you are in a cheep course which if passed places you in good stead.
