The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) will enter into tie up with top commerce colleges across India to open 100 study centres where courses for students could be offered, a top official said.
The ICSI faculty will train the students in these colleges after college hours, so that they can become qualified company secretaries, while they finished their graduation, Atul H Mehta, president, ICSI, said.
The institute is in the process of negotiations with leading software companies to develop an e-learning programme so that over 30 courses could be taught online, including videos and animation, Mehta said.
When asked about the demand-supply gap, Mehta said with more than nine lakh private companies and one lakh Public Sector companies, there was tremendous scope for the professionals, as there were only 40,000 company secretaries in India currently.
All the disputes and litigation can be filed in this tribunal, Mehta said.
