Goods and Services Tax popularly known as GST Act has finally got the Presidential Assent. Now after several years of deliberation between centre and states, there is a consensus and a uniform law has been evolved where both centre and state will participate.
The aim of GST is to create a single point taxation. Instead of lots of indirect taxes at different stages, there will be a single point of taxation. The administrative cost to collect, control and monitor the taxes will be substantially reduced.

CA Final examination in the subject strategic financial management is considered to be challenging in 2016. Examinees have shown their inability to score in this subject. Common mistakes noted in the subject Strategic Financial Management are mentioned elsewhere in the given blog. If you want to check in deep, may I request you to see the video of CA Nagender Sah Our esteemed faculty who is explaining the same in a video demonstration.
Firstly, the students fail to plan what the examination approach in the three hours. Specially, they are not clear about the working strategy of the first hour or 60 minutes.
Secondly, the students are selective in study and they don’t cover all chapters equally. It has been noticed recently that the students lack practice skills.
Thirdly, the approaches to the theoretical questions were casual and they were not properly written. Specially the direct question like short notes questions were not handled properly.
CONFUSIONS TO CLARITY IN CA-FINAL
Life is a journey and you have to travel with full confidence. You may be wondering what is right for you and what can be the value addition at the different stages of this journey. You might have been worried about the result of the chosen action course. There will be air of confusion within you. When you discuss with the people known to you, they might come up with the different stories and different viewpoints on the same issue which might confuse you.
The only recourse in such a scenario will be to get clarity of goals. Clarity means end of the confusion. Clarity gives the direction and thrust to reach towards goal. Clarity can come when only when you are steady mentally and remain focused. The focus can only come when you have faith. Faith is the force of life. You can only accelerate when you have faith in your focused goal and you have clarity of thoughts.
CA examination is tough because roughly 15 students out of 100 students who appear in the exam pass on an average in the CA Final exam. 85 students carry confusion and repeat the exam twice in May and November. This confusion appears because of the poor results. Also the peer group and seniors also talk the same.
These vicious exam circles create a negative impact on the CA final examinee, whether he is a first time examinee or is a repeater. All of these confusions create a depleted personality who does not know
how to come out with this negative cycle.
Clarity comes when you get a mentorship. Mentorship can create a direction for the future. It tells the action steps desirable to pass CA final exam. It tells all the subjects are equally important because you have to pass the group and not subject.
Fortunately, www.calearning.in has found the novel and positive way. It has developed its course for the first time in India for CA Final by offering an advanced product. Besides video and faculty notes which are available elsewhere in the market, it also offers three levels of assessments which are concept based MCQ with explanation, chapter based practice course with solution and three mock test papers with suggested answers. Its system of doubt resolution through email and webinar helps the student to get regular mentorship. Mentorship helps to develop positive mindset with the examinees.
Hence the clarity level increases when a student undergoes all the three level of assessment. Time and again, it is a proven fact that the faith can build up only when you are internally focused on your goal. Hence confusion can become clarity only when faith becomes down and deep within you.
