The List of Books are given according to the paper-wise. The list of suggested readings has been classified into two categories, viz. (i) Readings; and (ii) References.

The books suggested for readings cover a substantial portion of the syllabus. The Institute’s publications have also been included under the Readings/References. In some papers, the subject being very vast, it is not possible to recommend one book, and, therefore, students are advised to read a separate book for each functional area in these papers.Students are also advised to read relevant Bare Acts and Rules and Regulations relating thereto. ‘Student Company Secretary’, ‘Chartered Secretary’ and other journals of repute should also be read regularly for updating and supplementing the knowledge particularly, in subjects like Taxation, Economic Laws, Labour Laws and Corporate Laws.
