About Siliguri Branch
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 Teenbati More, Near over bridge Siliguri - 734005. Today we are 257 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 are also very encouraging and satisfactory. 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.
The Branch has been holding teleconferences, seminars, CPE programs on various topics as a part of its regular activities to keep ourselves updated with recent developments in the fields of Taxation, Audit, corporate Law etc. The Institute has started a post qualification course on Information System Audit ( ISA ) for the members. Training & Examination for the Course are held at Siliguri itself. Till date 49 members have become Qualified System Auditor under this course. Other Post Qualification Courses on DIRM, WTO have also been successfully undertaken by members .
The number of membership is growing with a faster pace and keeping that in mind we are planning to construct and develop the 1st Floor of the existing building so as to serve the members in a better way. In future we will try to install a video conferencing facility to develop a network with as many branches as possible.
In the year 2009-10 our Branch received the Best Branch of EIRC Award in all category and the Highly Commendable branch by ICAI, New Delhi in small category branches. The first batch of GMCS Classes was organized at Siliguri in October, 2009. The Siliguri Branch successfully organized the 17th National Convention of CA Students at Siliguri in December, 2009.
We believe that with the excellent teamwork and harmonious relationship with our members we will be able to achieve the goal.
