Password for PM and SM:

Few students are facing a problem where, after they download Practice Manual or Study Material from ICAI Website, the file keeps asking for a password. To solve this, first install a pdf viewer software from Google PlayStore and then open the file using that software.

Even though the language used in ICAI Study Materials is little sophisticated and difficult when compared to the study materials distributed by private coaching centres, examiners only encourage such good vocabulary in the exams.
