Chartered Accountants are one of the important pillars of the economy. Since the profession’s inception in 1949, Chartered Accountants have been diligently contributing towards strengthening and enriching our economy.
The prestigious Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) plays an instrumental role in serving the Indian economy in public interest. Its strength lies in its strong member base of more than 3.5 lakh Chartered Accountants and 7.5 lakh students who in one way or the other contribute to the growth story of the industry and the nation.
In recognition of their onerous contributions and to reward young outstanding performers of ICAI members, on the eve of 75 years of India's Independence, ICAI is organising an event in association with CNBC-TV18 ‘40 Under 40 – CA Business Leaders’.
The campaign aims to felicitate and honour stellar individuals who have demonstrated excellence and portrayed an abiding commitment to achieve heights as CA Business Leaders. Through these awards, we celebrate the spirit of excellence of young and dynamic Chartered Accountants across diverse fields ranging from industry to entrepreneurship to public service.
