The Institute of Cost Accountant Of India (ICAI) has drawn up plans to set up 100-150 CMA support centres across the country.
ICAI central council member Manas Kumar Thakur said, "We have decided to set up 100-150 CMA Support Centres in a year and the first will be in Gulbarga in Jammu & Kashmir."
The plan had been drawn with close talks with Ministry of Corporate Affiars (MCA), which wants to promote industrialisation and cost-management concepts in smaller cities.
Thakur said these cost management account or CMA support centres will be opened where ICAI is not present and also make the students aware to join the course from smaller cities and towns for bright future.
ICAI is already present in 97 locations across the country.
Thakur said to align the course with international standards, the institute had already proposed few changes in course in all the three levels and the same was awaiting MCA's approval.
