Highlighting the important role that chartered accountants play in business, Dr Professor Changole, HOD and Officiating Principle of Dhanwate National College said, “Numbers are created by humans and chartered accountants (CAs) are the best people to handle these numbers. The figures of any business depict many views and to understand financial health of an organisation, CAs act like doctors.” He was speaking at inaugural session of ‘Advanced IT training’ and MCS batch for CA students at Nagpur Branch of WIRC of ICAI at Dhantoli. He said, “Accounting system is totally based on statistics and analysis. Statistics is the real game of numbers. They can prove everything in every field and chartered accountants are considered masters of numbers.” Dr Changole motivated the students to work on the path of honesty and integrity. CA course is one of the toughest courses in the world, which teaches practical aspects. Chartered accountants are the most committed. Apart from this CAs are practical oriented in their work.
