National Chartered Accountants Day

Every year on July 1st, India celebrates National Chartered Accountants Day, a day dedicated to recognizing the invaluable contributions of Chartered Accountants (CAs) to the nation’s economy and financial health. In 2024, we honor these financial experts with a special theme: “Innovating for a Sustainable Future.”

History of National Chartered Accountants Day

National Chartered Accountants Day commemorates the founding of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) on July 1, 1949. The ICAI is one of the oldest professional institutions in India, established just a year after the country gained independence. Over the decades, the ICAI has played a pivotal role in setting high standards for accounting practices, education, and ethics, ensuring that Indian CAs are respected and recognized worldwide for their expertise and integrity.
