The petitioners highlighted transportation and other issues that may arise due to the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections, but the bench was of the view that no rule suggests exams can not be conducted during elections.

"You want the CA exams to be postponed? Is there some law that says there can’t be any exams during Lok Sabha elections? You have no business to be CA if you can’t study due to election” the bench said.

“Mere fact that candidates taking the exam may face hardship in undertaking the exam cannot be a ground for the court to derail the exam which is to be taken by approx 4.26,000 aspirants. This court is surprised that such a request has been made,” it added.

The ICAI had previously changed the dates for the CA Inter and Final examinations in view of the Lok Sabha Elections.

CA Inter Group I exams are scheduled for May 3, 5 and 9, 2024, and for Group II, exams will take place on May 11, 15 and 17, 2024.

CA Final Group I exams will take place on May 2, 4, and 8, 2024, and the Group II exam will be conducted on May 10, 14, and 16, 2024. The International Taxation -Assessment Test is scheduled for May 14 and 16, 2024.
