Today, I am here as the Chairperson of the Vijayawada Branch of SIRC of ICAI because I am a Chartered Accountant. The Chartered Accountants Act which came into existence 70 years ago gave us the renowned and prominent ‘Chartered Accountancy’ Profession. Our apex body, the ‘Institute of Chartered Accountants of India’ ICAI has been guiding the profession ever since, continuously supporting the CAs, monitoring various fields of the profession viz., taxation, accountancy and auditing, overseeing the work of CAs in versatile areas and standing up to its Members whenever and wherever required. The role of the ICAI is remarkable while making its Members adaptable to changes viz., abolition or modification of existing laws and incorporation of new laws and several other changes in various statutes from time to time.
The Vijayawada Branch was formed on 18th August,1971 and with that wonderful inauguration we started our journey and reached the member strength of 950 and student strength of 15000. Our success story was not only based on number strength but also on the superior professional fraternity and dedicated students with high professionalism based on initiatives and innovations, major attributes that continue to define our strategies. In the line of ICAI, Vijayawada branch has been serving its Members by conducting various programs, seminars and workshops on various subjects. Vijayawada branch has also been organising various certificate courses like certificate course on concurrent Audit of Banks, FAFD, GST etc., and Post qualification course DISA . As a part of this mission to serve its Members, Vijayawada Branch organizes for the benefit of Members and Students State level, National Level Seminars every year.
