Siliguri Branch of EIRC

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India

(A Statutory body established under an act of Parliament)

In the year 1984 a chapter of ICAI was formed under the Chairmanship of Sri CA.P.C.Maskara with few number of members. Since then there was no turning back : the unflinching confidence and the pride they carried in their heart resulted in the Chapter being converted into a Branch under the Chairmanship of CA. D. K. Banerjee in the year 1990 with a strength of more or less 43 members. The Siliguri Branch of EIRC of ICAI has its own Building ( ICAI Bhawan ) at Teenbatti More, Near over bridge Siliguri - 734005. Today we are around 500 members to bear the torch of this Branch.

The great enthusiasm and commitment of the then members helped this Branch to be recognized as an examination center in the year 1998. We started to organize the CA examinations for PE I, PE II and for Final course. The results at each level have been very encouraging and satisfactory. Today we are proud to say that several of our students have emerged as Toppers with their names appearing frequently in Merit Lists of CPT , IPCC & Final Examinations in All India Level. The Branch also organizes Annual Students Elocution and Quiz contest which motivates students to appear in public and present their views. The Siliguri Branch of EICASA was formed in the year 2009. The Branch has a fully equipped Computer lab where IT Training for Students is conducted. We are also having a well equipped library for the students as well as for the members.

In the Year 2015 the Branch Celebrated its 25th Anniversary.
