The fee for changing from old to the new course( Conversion Fees): From June 2017 ICAI has introduced new syllabus and has seized the registration under old syllabus, If Any student who has a valid registration but want to change it to their new course, they pay Rs 500 as conversion fees.

Articleship Fees: The  3-year compulsory training programme  Articleship of CA course is registered after paying fees of Rs 2000.

Form Fees: The online form to register for levels is for Rs 200webinars.

The total Fee structure of CA course prescribed by ICAI  is around RS 80,000 but the gravity of this course is such that student usually registers in coaching centers for personalized and advanced studies.ICAI also hot webcast and podcast, webinars and also despatches study material to the registered student, but still as CA being the toughest exam to crack, students prefer to take coaching from the India best coaching institute.

One such Institute of Jaipur  MCC provides the CA coaching for rs 1 lakh for both Foundation and Intermediate level. They also provide personalized coaching for particular subjects of Final papers.

I also want to mention that while doing Articleship for 3 years, you receive a stipend which is around 2500 per month as prescribed by ICAI. However, if you choose good and reputed CA firm or Financial Institution as your Principal, you might receive RS 10000 per month as your stipend.

If I account this in my analysis on Fees structure of CA, then the Fees paid for the Ca course ( it might sound bit flashy) but you do it for free of cost.
