The city has no reason to rejoice the CA final result. Only two students from Jaipur centre managed to make it to the top 50 and they are Neha Mittal and Himanshu Vijay. This year, Jaipur centre has failed to make a mark at the national level despite a rise in the number of students. The only saving grace is that the overall pass percentage is more than the national pass percentage.

Vijay secured 35th berth with 524 marks.
