The Institute of Chartered Accountancy of India (ICAI) once again has postponed the examination dates for CA Final. The reason behind the move, as explained by the institute, is its exam dates being clashed with Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations, which are scheduled to be held during the same time and many ICAI test centres. As per the new timetable, ICAI CA Final has now been postponed to June 4, as examination centres will conduct the UPSC exam on June 2, the earlier date of CA Final exam.
