A fine balance


The institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI), a pioneer in taking various initiatives towards  nation building has announced a 100 per cent fees refund scheme for meritorious and economically weaker students registering in CS course in December 2017, in its Foundation and Executive programme.

This initiative of the ICSI during its golden jubilee year is to bring the meritorious students as well as economically weaker students who cannot afford higher education, to the mainstream, by providing free registration to pursue higher education course like the prestigious Company Secretaryship (CS) course,

The fee refund scheme will be open for all students for the month of December and will be applicable for the meritorious students who have attained 70 per cent  marks in 12th class examinations for foundation stage and similar refund if they attain 60 per cent in Graduation for executive stage and for economically weaker students who have attained 55 per cent marks in 10+2 examinations for foundation stage and similar refund if they attain 50 per cent in Graduation for executive stage. This refund shall be through ICSI’s SEFT ( Students Education Fund Trust) and all subsequent benefits for conditional fee refund thereafter shall be given to such students.

This is a major step taken by the institute in promoting excellence  in Corporate Governance  including various other path breaking initiatives taken by the institute for the inclusive growth of youth .

CS (Dr) Shyam Agrawal, President, ICSI said that through this upbeat move, the institute is expecting to empower the meritorious students who are economically weaker. He also urged the members of the institute to propagate this initiative amongst the prospective students to reach out to the meritorious and economically deprived sections of the society.
