GMCS, ITT and OP Course Now Offering Online Registration Facilities
ICAI came up with an interesting announcement that CA students are going to love. For long, CA students have been tormented by the fact that had to physically go and register for courses like GMCS, ITT and OP. They can now bypass this pain and register for these different course through an online portal. It is quick, easy and effective! Being an online portal, CA students from all over India can quickly register without worrying about the demographic barriers. This article will walk you through the step by step guide to registration process and will also sum up different modules made available.
Registering with the online portal for GMCS, ITT and OP Courses
In order to register online for GMCS, ITT or OP courses, the first thing that is required is to register with the portal. The process of registration is simple but slightly different from registration process found in usual website on the web. So, here is how it all works:
Step 1: First thing first, you need to remember your CPT registration number. If you don’t have it memorized, find the number and keep it handy.
Step 2: If you are a direct entry student, you will still have a registration number. Find it and keep it handy.
Step 3:Click on this link here http://www.icaionlineregistration.org/StudentRegistrationForCaNo.aspx to end up on the registration page.
Step 4: Here you will notice a small form with CPT Route pre-selected. If you have CPT registration number, enter the number and click on submit. In case you are a direct entry student, select the other option (in this case you will need to click on and select the other radio button) and then enter your registration number.
Step 5: Once the system receives a registration number, a registration form will show up. This is where you will have to fill in all the details accurately. There are some mandatory fields which are marked with a small star like shape known as asterisk. You need make sure that those fields are properly filled in.
Step 6: Provide a proper username and password. Keep a note of both. You will need them for logging into the account you are creating.
Step 7: Take your time and check and recheck the form. Make sure that you eliminate any human error and that the form data is absolutely accurate. Once you are convinced that everything as accurate, hit the submit button. Wait until the system shows a ‘registration successful’ message.
Step 8: Now follow this link http://www.icaionlineregistration.org/Admin_Module/Login.aspx to login into the system using the username and password you created during the registration process.
Voila! You have successfully registered with ICAI’s online portal and now you can go ahead and register for different courses online!
