book2Heralding a new era of education, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) will soon have a TV channel for its members as well as those studying accountancy, its chief said on Monday.

"We will start a 24-hour TV channel for our members and students. It will have interesting programmes to make learning interesting. It will take another two to three months," ICAI president Subodh Kumar Agrawal said at a media conference here.

"We have already set up e-learning and internet facilities. This will be another step to reach out to the lakhs of members and students we have," he said. According to Agarwal, the institute has over ten lakh students and more than two lakh members.

"The thought behind the channel was that we have around 13 lakh direct, captive audience. We will come out with programmes which are interesting for members and reach an audience of around 30 to 40 lakh," Agrawal said.

For overseas members, "webinar" (web seminar) facilities are also available. "We have 21 foreign chapters. In Dubai, we have our own building and training facility. We are not only catering to India but to other countries as well," Agrawal said.
