As posted by one of the members in the comment, Ghanu Maheshwari is India’s youngest chartered accountant at the age of 18. The source quoted by the member is being posted here. One of our members clarified this issue. Ghanu Maheshwari has cleared the CA in 2001. But after an year the exam pattern was changed to IPCC from PCC.
