Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan on Friday felicitated Prema Jayakumar for topping the Chartered Accountancy final examination in the country.
While congratulating Prema, the Governor announced an award of Rs 1 lakh for her as a token of appreciation, an official release said.
Dhanaraj Jayakumar, younger brother of Prema who also passed the CA final examination this year, and Dr Ancy Jose, Principal of Nagindas Khandwala College of Commerce, where Prema studied, were also present, at the function held at Raj Bhavan here.
The Governor advised Prema to choose her career carefully and to take best care of her parents.
Surmounting all odds, Prema Jayakumar, daughter of a Mumbai-based auto-rickshaw driver, topped the all India Chartered Accountancy (CA) examination.
Residing in a crammed one-room chawl in suburban Malad with her parents and brother, the 24-year-old secured the first rank in the examination conducted in November 2012 by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, results of which were announced on January 21.
