The results of the Chartered Accountants (CA) final exam and Common Proficiency Test (CPT) exam were declared on Monday by the Institute of Chartered Accounts of India (ICAI).

Out of the 9,717 students who appeared for the CA final exam from the ICAI Jaipur branch held in May, 1,960 have emerged successful. Six students from the branch have secured a place in the merit list of top 50 students.

Vinod Tilwani (Rank-22), Vidhi Garg (Rank-32), Shubham Agarwal (Rank-38), Shipra Kabra (Rank-47), Rahul Poddar (Rank-47) and Piyush Bansal (Rank-50) found a place in the merit list.

Vinod Tilwani’s father, Mahesh Tilwani, is a fourth-grade employee with the Rajasthan Public Health Department. He also owns a small shop in Malviya Nagar where he sells and repairs gas burners.

Overjoyed with his child’s success, Mahesh told HT, “He used to go out with friends, help me at the shop, attend coaching classes, but never failed to devote 4-5 hours to self-study every day. In the last few months before the exams, he used to study over 16 hours a day.”

Mahesh also topped his batch of Bcom (Hons) from University Maharaja College.
