    The result of Company Secretaries (CS) was declared on Saturday. Ahmedabad chapter students have posted 58 per cent result in foundation pogramme, 29 per cent in executive programme and 43 per cent in the professional programme which is the final exam. City lad Darshil Thakker ranked 18th in India and first in Ahmedabad. His father is a CA, CS and Thakker too wants to get both the degrees as he feels that the dual qualification will give him an edge professionally.

    Parag Prajapati got second rank in the city and posted 30th rank in the All India merit list. Prajapati has emerged victorious over difficult circumstances and proved that grit and determination is enough to crack the toughest of exams.

    Prajapati stays in a small one-room-kitchen house in Ratanpol area of the walled city. While his father works in a printing press, his mother is a housewife and he has two sisters. Since finances have always been constrained, Prajapati did most of his study for the exam in MJ Library. During the night time, he would study under a zero watt bulb so that his family is not disturbed.

    “My father’s boss, Bhupen Shah paid my fee for CA and CS courses. I will be indebted to him as education alone will enable me to help my family break free from the chains of poverty”, said Prajapati. He says that he intends to get a job soon and ask his father to retire.

    “My parents have worked tirelessly for my education. I want my father to rest and enjoy his retirement”, said Prajapati.

    President of the Ahmedabad chapter of Institute of Company Secretaries of India ( ICSI) said that 3,000 odd students from Ahmedabad had appeared for the CS exams. He said that next examinations of Company Secretaries for foundation programme (new syllabus) will be Optical Mark Reader (OMR) based. For the first time the exam will be objective type.

    This exam is scheduled to be held on Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2, 2012 while the CS main examinations for foundation programme, executive programme and professional programme will be held from December 26 to January 2, 2013.
