How it all begin?
I joined CA course in year 2009 just after completing higher secondary exams. Chartered Accountancy was a flourishing profession at that point of time and my accountancy teacher recommended me for it.
Being a Marwari and keen interest in mathematics made my interest for this course. I cleared all levels of CA course in first attempt. I did my internship from a CA firm based in Connaught Place, Delhi and was majorly involved in Taxation work.
After completing CA, I was working with consulting firm working as an tax consultant. Reading case laws on tax laws, analyzing making critical tax positions was part of routine work profile.
From there, I got interest to pursue LLB. Once I took the decision to pursue LLB, there was no backing out. I had searched for universities and decided to pursue LLB only from Faculty of Law, University of Delhi.
I completed my law in year 2019 from the Delhi university.
