In the next two years, India may require 30 lakhs of accountants to meet the fast-tracking growth of companies, according to P. Raju Iyer, chairman of the Southern India Regional Council of the Institute of Cost Accountants of India.
He made the observation after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with S. Senthil Kumar, secretary of Theivanai Ammal College for Women, here recently.
Mr. Iyer said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was keen that at least two lakh companies be set up nationwide in two years. It meant that these companies would require three million cost accountants. However, as of now, hardly three lakh cost accountants were available.
Their work, which is often decidedly administrative in nature, involves documenting grievances, terminations, absences, performance reports, and compensation and benefits information.
