ICSUTrg/e-MSOP/2020 dated 31.03.2020 and ICSI/Trg/QR/2020 dated 17.04.2020 wherein the students were provided relaxation by easing the eligibility in the provision of e-MSOP and also in the submission of first quarterly reports up to 30 June 2020,”.
The Institute provided big relaxation in the eligibility criteria for admission in e-MSOP. It temporarily removed the two-year time barrier early required between professional pass and e-MSOP registration. The institute removed it due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
