Paper-2: Company Law by Adv Sanyog Vyas (New Syllabus)

In today’s competitive and contestable business environment, the professional qualification has assumed
greater significance to attain excellence in career. A professional course which bridges the gulf between
theory and practice and covers significant facets of the course plays a crucial role in building the career of a
student. In other words, a good syllabus implies a bright career. In light of this vital fact, The Institute of
Company Secretaries of India made an endeavour to revise its syllabus of Executive Programme and
Professional Programme.
To provide practical perspective to the New Syllabus, an innovative concept of Core, Ancillary and Hybrid
were embraced while designing the structure and contents of the syllabus of various subjects. The syllabus
revising exercise also took cognizance of an important facet that with expected role profile of Company
Secretary profession, certain new subjects got introduced. The most prodigious development in this process
is inclusion of Multidisciplinary Case Studies which will assist in providing a fillip to simulation learning
approach, which in turn will assist a student to comprehend the finer aspects of corporate issues. Similarly,
subjects like, Jurisprudence, Interpretation and General Laws; Financial and Strategic Management; Setting
up of Business Entities and Closure etc. will be of immense academic and practical value due to their coverage
of topics which has a robust linkage to the Company Secretary profession.
As in any professional course, specialization is a key component , relevant elective subjects have been
included in the New Syllabus focusing on Banking, Insurance, Valuation, Business Modelling, Insolvency,
Labour Laws and Forensic Audit.
At times it happens that after entering an employment or practice a professional may think that pursuing a
particular course would have added wings to his or her career which he or she could not do while pursuing a
professional course. In order to enable such members and students to value add to their qualifications
extremely relevant Post Membership Qualification and Certification Courses, have also been identified.
The New Syllabus would not have witnessed the light of the day without the relentless efforts of CS Pavan
Kumar Vijay, Past President ICSI and Chairman, Core Group on Vision New ICSI 2022 and CS
Ramasubramaniam C, Chairman, Syllabus Review Board who conceptualized the New Syllabus and took it to
zenith. I also commend the sincere endeavours of Mr.V.K.Aggarwal, Former Principal Director, ICSI who
ensured that all the aspects pertinent to the various subjects of Executive Programme and Professional
Programme are duly captured in order to have a holistic approach and to give the New Syllabus
contemporary practical outlook.
I am highly grateful to all the Members of Syllabus Review Board, Core Group on Vision New ICSI 2022,
Secretarial Standards Board, Committee formed for finalization of syllabus, industry experts, various
stakeholders and officials of the Secretariat of ICSI who have provided their valuable views and suggestions at
every stage of preparation of the syllabus and played a crucial role in bringing out the New Syllabus.
It can be said without an iota of doubt that the New Syllabus will be like a ‘Pole Star’ guiding the ‘Governance
