Sir as per Clarification issued w.r.t to clause 6 of Schedule I part 1- CA in Practice distribute hand bills to only his client, not to others. But I had seen in ICAI election and on occasion of Budget analysis, many CA in practice and even member Participating in the election distribute the hand bills to nonclients. Is it the open violation of the professional ethics?
budget analysis should be sent only to clients, it can be uploaded on website of firm, if any one wants they can come and download it.
sending it to people who are not client is violation.
regarding election, profile of candidate is sent to all CAs who are voting, this practice is absolutely fine. it is not practice related matter and firm name should not be highlighted
