Dear Aspirant, As already mentioned by other experts about the eligibility criteria, I would like to make you aware that in the industry today, just being eligible by qualification is not enough, but you should have the employability aspects in you to get a good job. Qualification is just a ticket to take you to the interview desk, but how and what you perform on the interview desk, is much more important. So CA qualification will not just get you a good job, but skills of a Chartered Accountant will. so dont be behind getting just qualified, become employable. Best wishes!

Please note, you are eligible to work as an accountant in both government or private sector. But getting the final degree in hand will get you a better position.
