about the importance of the 'Practical Accountancy'
DB Prakash, Director of IPA said,
"A business organisation can grow well if it
has a strong accounts department. Moreover, it is the
accounts department which can draw up a good resource
utilization programme and cost saving mechanism, so
that the profit margin of the company can be increased.
The role, importance of cost and management accounts
has increased tremendously on account of growing competition
in the corporate sector. Hence there is a need for accounts
managers with an analytical mindset. Fair amount of
awareness about global economic conditions and good
judgemental qualities are equally important. We at IPA
strive hard to impart these qualities in the accounts
manager of tomorrow's India."
Established in 1993, the Institute of Practical Accounts
(IPA) was started by Mr DB Prakash after passing through
the problems of accountancy in his early part of career.
Now with over 25 years of experience as a Tax Consultant,
Mr Prakash wants to share his knowledge and wisdom with
the candidates who want to excel in this field. Within
a span of eight years, the institute has trained more
than 3500 candidates from different disciplines.
"The students of IPA are most sought after.
Sixty to seventy per cent of students find placement
on their own, immediately after their training,"
says Mr Prakash proudly. Some of the organisations
who sponsor their employees and who absorb IPA candidates
include Satyam Computers, CMC, TVS, Khaitan India Ltd,
GE Capital, Care Hospitals, Bartronics India Ltd, to
name a few.
