The ICAI is the second largest professional body of Chartered Accountants in the world, with almost 2.5 lakh members.

Chartered Accountants' (CA ) Day: History

Before ICAI came into existence, the British Government in India used to maintain accounts using the Companies Act. The British Government then launched a accountancy diploma course for auditors. The people who completed this course became eligible to work as auditors all across India.

However, the accountancy profession remained unregulated in India until an expert committee, in 1948, suggested the formation of an autonomous body to regulate the same. It was followed by the passing of Chartered Accountant Act in 1949.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) was established on 1 July 1949.
