Mr. M Mahalingam on his retirement wanted to share his expertise in training the youngsters as the best Finance Professionals of future. He has observed that lot of youngsters in Northern part of the Country choose Finance as their profession and enjoy their positions at different levels. Whereas in South the number of such optees are comparatively very low. Youngsters are not being properly appraised on the strengths and benefits of Finance Professionals. The demand for Finance Professionals are at increase and a very few are realizing about the same.
Mr. M Mahalingam noticed that lot of youngsters choosing Commerce courses are ending up in clerical jobs without realizing their inherent strengths. Hence, he started CHALLA ACADEMY under the banner of MV AMMA Charitable Trust in Ramamurthy Nagar Main Road, Bangalore with a vision and motto of training the best Finance professionals. He wants to see that the youngsters acquire professional qualifications like CA/ICWA/ICS etc. and lead honourable life as experts in the field.
MV AMMA CHARTITABLE TRUST has been started to fulfill the cherished desires of his mother. His mother always motivated him to do something for the benefit of the Poor and Lower Middle class children. The result is the present TRUST wherein Mr. M Mahalingam invested a corpus of Rs.10 lakhs from his retirement benefits to help the need children.
Why Tally ERP-9: While recruiting Finance Professionals, Mr. M Mahalingam noticed that the candidates were not only possessing certificates issued by unrecognised institutes but also are not having required basic (minimum) knowledge about Tally. He was feeling bad for the ignorance of the students and their parents resulting in wastage of their time and hard earned money. Hence, he has taken franchise from Tally as an authorized partner to run the course to bring real value for their money and time.
To facilitate the students to become Finance professionals, it is essential to have good foundation in Commerce subjects and hence, we have started CHALLA PU COLLEGE of Commerce to impart the best knowledge to the PU (10+2)students. The College is approved by the PU Board of Govt. of Karnataka. Registration No. AN-867
Parents and students are requested to utilize the services available at CHALLA ACADEMY and become good professionals in the field of Finance which is the life line of economy
