The Institute Of Chartered Accountant Of India plans to usher in the facility of 'e-hearing' for its disciplinary cases. President Manoj Fadnis said, such facility once introduced after amendment of the rules would help in faster disposal of disciplinary cases against any erring members.

When the central council approves this, the decision will be forwarded to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs for the final approval. Further President said that it is not that the concept of 'e-hearing' will happen in next few months, we are looking at this as a  the futuristic plan.

The facility of  'e-hearing' will be beneficial for both the members of CA Institute as well as the disciplinary committee in terms of reduced cost and faster disposal of cases. He said that the facility will only be optional and not mandatory. Fadnis also said that the CA Institute was trying its best to ensure that a robust disciplinary mechanism as prescribed under the law is adopted.
