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!
