The massive earthquake which rocked Nepal on 25th April, 2015 has left more than 5,000 persons dead and rendered many thousands homeless. The Government of India is doing its best to provide relief to the affected citizens of Nepal by sending rescue and relief teams.
Nepal is a member of SAARC and is part of South Asian Federation of Accountants of which India is a founder member. The ICAI had helped Nepal in formation of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal. A large number of Chartered Accountants settled in Nepal are in fact members qualified from ICAI. There are over 4,000 students who are pursuing Indian CA course from Nepal.
In this scenario, ICAI has decided to stand with the affected members and students of Nepal, and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time. The employees of ICAI will be encouraged to contribute one day’s pay and also contribute in kind by donating clothes, groceries and other necessities to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal (ICAN) will divert the help to the needy members and students.
Besides the above, ICAI has opened a bank account exclusively for the purpose of collecting donations from members, students and others so that the same can be transferred to ICAN.
