CA Articleship is compulsory 3 years training which every CA students have to undergo for becoming a CA. There is lot of confusion in the article assistant about CA Articleship stipend rates. So, here I am posting the current CA articleship stipend rates applicable in India. You would have knowing that stipend amount varies as per the city population. There is a common complaint in article assistant that stipend amount is very low, so ICAI president had said in one convocation that Articleship stipend will be increased by 2.5 to 3 Times last year, but still it is not applicable. We strongly recommend that CA Articleship stipend must be increased because the current stipend rate is much lower (may be compatible to salary of Sweeper, if I am not wrong, what you say??). Check the more details about CA Articleship stipend below.
