Posted By:

Coimbatore: The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) will enter into tie up with top commerce colleges across the country to open 100 study centres where courses for students could be offered, a top official said on Sunday.

The ICSI faculty will train the students in these colleges after college hours, so that they can become qualified company secretaries, while they finished their graduation, Atul H Mehta, president, ICSI, told reporters. All the Centres would be opened by this year, he said.

The institute is in the process of negotiations with leading software companies to develop an e-learning programme so that over 30 courses could be taught online, including videos and animation, Mehta said.

Stating that the new Companies Act 2013 envisaged a multi-dimensional role for company secretaries, he said the profession has undergone tremendous change.

When asked about the demand-supply gap, Mehta said with more than nine lakh private companies and one lakh Public Sector companies, there was tremendous scope for the professionals, as there were only 40,000 company secretaries in India currently.

Mehta, here to attend 14th conference of Students Company Secretaries, said that a National Company Law Tribunal, on the line of Income Tax Tribunal, will soon be set up in the country.

All the disputes and litigation can be filed in this tribunal, Mehta said.
