What is the CA-Intermediate Course?

Does a student have an option for registering to CA-IPCC (Old Course) after 1st July 2017?

CA-IPCC has been permanently discontinued from 1st July 2017 onwards. Thus, a student has to compulsorily enrol for the new course, i.e. CA-Intermediate.

Does ICAI exempt students who have written CA-CPT June 2017 from registering to the new course?

No, the results of CPT-June 2017 will be declared in July 2017 when the old course would have already been discontinued, so students have to mandatorily join the new course.
