Speaking at a press conference Mr. Praneeth said that the intensive articleship at M/s. M.N. Rao & Associates, Chartered Accountants under the guidance of principal auditor CA T. S. Rama Mohana Rao gave him practical insights and helped him bag the top score.

“Articleship with the passion to learn for three years is a very important phase of CA course where students transform as professionals. It helped me prepare for the final,” he said.
Also, V. Anjaneya Vara Prasad who pursued articleship at the same firm bagged the all India 46th rank in the CA final examination.
