If you want
happiness for an hour — take a nap. If you want happiness for a day — go
fishing. If you want happiness for a month — get married. If you want happiness
for a year — inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime — help
— Chinese proverb
These are the
guiding principles, on which Bombay Chartered Accountants’ Society has year over
year successfully and effectively contributed to the ever-changing needs of the
Chartered Accountants’ fraternity.
BCAS has always
kept itself abreast with the changing times and has made continued efforts to
adapt with the ever-demanding C.A. Students’ community. A step in this direction
is the creation of the "BCAS — Students’ Forum". Students’ Forum is a
breakthrough for the students, for it is "Of the students, For the students and
By the students". In the past, BCAS has carried out a number of student-related
activities. However, these activities involved a greater participation of the
members. The students’ role in these activities was at the most restricted to a
few activities. Now with the establishment of the Students’ Forum, students have
been encouraged to take active role in deciding, organising, co-ordinat-ing and conducting of the events under the able guidance
of the Human Resource Development Committee.
What the Students’ Forum proposes
to achieve ?
pro-students forum, the Forum aims at achieving the following :
Conducting study circle meetings of students.
Publishing Students’ Newsletter, comprising
articles and other topics of interest contributed by students.
Conduct programmes on academic topics for the CPT,
PCC and Final students.
Conduct programmes on non-academic topics like
Banking, Internal Audit, Capital Markets, to name a few.
Organise mock examinations.
And a host of exciting programmes as per the
wishes and needs of Forum members.
Each student who
is pursuing the course of CA is invited to join the BCAS Students’ Forum. Simply
register at BCAS office by filling up your registration form and a one-time
entrance fee of Rs.50. You will have the privilege of first-hand and early

has always been the ‘crux’ of our activities. We collectively as Forum are
strongly determined than ever before to lift our intellectual levels to higher
The Forum already
enjoys the able shoulders of 20 forthcoming student members who have volunteered
to take the lead in giving shape to the dreams and ambitions of the Forum. These
students have formed a Students’ Forum committee which would act as a
single-point coordination team between the students and the seniors helping the
students realise their goals. The committee has been further split in four
specialist teams, each having a role to play to perfection in order to make this
endeavour successful. They are as under :

Programmes of the Students’ Forum
The course of
chartered accountancy is definitely a tough nut to crack, but a piece of advice
or some valuable guidance makes a world of difference. True to its promise, the
Students’ Forum is here to act as a bridge to link you all to some of the
best-known learned professionals who are ever willing to act as your guide and
mentor. So ‘Buddies’, make the most of the programme which is coming your way
As the Forum is
truly of the students, the study circle has been specifically designed, so as to
give the students a greater exposure to the professional challenges that lie
ahead of them.
The study circle
meet will be chaired by a Chartered Accountant. The learned chairman will not be
a presenter at the meeting. He/She will be the torch-bearer and guide who will
steer the meet to correct and logical conclusions.
Then the question
arises, "Who will present the topic at the meeting ?" Well, don’t be shocked….
It will be actually one or more students presenting a detailed paper on the
topic. The presentation will be followed by a Question and Answer Session. The
intention being that the students at the end of the meet become well
accomplished with the topic.
The seats are
limited and not more than 75 students would be accommodated on
first-come-first-served basis. Only Forum members can attend the study circle
meet. Hence make sure that all of you interested students out there have
registered with the Students’ Forum in time to not to miss out on this knowledge
All the Forum
members should intimate about their willingness to attend the study circle
through email to email@example.com at the earliest.
we at BCAS believe in the saying
"Give the best
to the world
And the best will
come back to you".
We would like to
urge all you aspiring chartered accountants to believe in the same and spread
the message of our activities for the students.
