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, and now its applicable. We strongly recommended 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??).
