It was July 1, 1949. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) came into being as a Statutory Body under the Chartered Accountants Act 1949. The primary aim of the Institute was and still is the regulation of the Profession of Chartered Accountancy in India. In 1952, Eastern India Regional Council (EIRC) of ICAI saw the light of the day. The jurisdiction of EIRC spreads to the states of Assam, Tripura, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Orissa, West Bengal, Manipur, Mizoram and the Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The founder Chairman was Mr. Molay Deb and the Office of the EIRC was located in the 2nd flor of 7, Hastings Street (Now renamed as Kiron Shankar Roy Road).
On July1, 2012, EIRC completed its 60th Year, having been founded on May 14, 1952. In the Diamond Jubilee Year while celebration is taking place, EIRC is also looking forward to better and more effective service to members and students. The cherished dream of EIRC is to kindle the spark within - to bring members and students of ICAI closer – to make them not only good professionals but also good human beings.
The number of EIRC members and students has been on a rising trend. With the active cooperation of members and students EIRC would reach even more greater heights in future. Its time to take stock of activities, performance and outcome and plan appropriately for the future.
