MCA Accounting Notes

The Master of Computer Applications (MCA) is a postgraduate degree in computer application streams awarded in India. Full time MCA programmes normally take three academic years. Many universities have added  "ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT" subject in MCA degree. Because my specialize field is Accounting and Finance. So, I can help you to learn this subject. For providing you accounting notes, I am taking  "JAWAHARLAL NEHRU TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY KAKINADA"  I YEAR I SEMESTER M.C.A's Accounting syllabus.
