We encourage you to change and remember the password once you log in and take control of your Log in for the exam related activities.

While creating the user ID, I am directed to submit a provisional application? Why is it so?

Your identity as a student of ICAI is validated through your ten digit registration number ( like NRO0123456) , name of the course and your date of birth that you had entered while creating the User ID. If these fields do not match with those in the Institute’s database, the system would not provide you User ID and password against the student registration number entered by you. Instead the system will allot a login against a system generated Pxxxxxxxx number for submitting your on-line exam form.

Hence, please ensure that you fill in your student registration number as per the registration letter sent to you. You are advised to keep a copy of the letter from Board of Studies, ICAI registering you as a student of ICAI ready on hand so that you can fill your registration number correctly.

Also ensure that you fill in your date of birth, as per the documents submitted by you to the Institute at the time of registration.

In case your details do not match with our records, we shall still issue the User ID and password, you will be permitted to submit a provisional application, subject to verification of documentary evidence.

Some of the errors committed by candidates while filling the on-line forms are as follows:

 

  • Your unique registration number typed on the on-line form may be different from the one that is communicated to you by the Board of Studies of the Institute.
  • The date of birth you enter in the form may be different from the date of birth on the records of the Institute.

Those whose registration is under process and have not been allotted the registration number OR those who are still using the old registration numbers such as BB0123456,DD0123456,etc., may select OTHERS in the “Select Prefix”. The submission will again be provisional in such cases.

 

Who do I contact for technical support for my on-line application?

If you have successfully logged into the on-line application and need technical support, you can contact the Help Desk numbers mentioned on the home page or send an email to [email protected]. They will respond via email as soon as possible ( and within one business day). Please note that the Technical Help Desk can only answer technical questions; they cannot answer questions related to the exam, eligibility etc. Do quote your Student Registration number, Name, Fathers Name and Date of Birth while seeking these details.

In the internet payment channel loss of payment happens for a small number of cases due to many issues like bandwidth, response time from bank, students refreshing the page frequently etc. Eventhough the amount may have got deducted from your account, due to above reasons it has not got reflected in our account.Please pay again and successfully get the PDF. You can send the email for the refund of fees.

I filled in the on-line form and also paid the exam fees. However, when I saw the credit card/bank statement, I realized that the amount of the exam fees has been debited more than once in my account. It appears that I might have paid the exam fees more than once. Can I get a refund of the excess amount paid by me? What is the procedure for claiming the excess exam fee payment arising on account of multiple payments/lost transactions etc?

Multiple payments received by us, if any, for a single student (with same registration number), will be identified by the system and are refunded for the credit of the respective accounts from where they originated, by the office, within 21 days of the last date for submission of forms.

In case you have made payment of exam fees more than once and that is received by us for the same student registration number and you do not get a refund within 30 days from the last date for submission of forms, you can claim a refund of the excess amount paid by you, by writing to us within 45 days from the last date for submission of forms, along with documentary evidence, such as bank/credit card statement, of having paid the exam fees more than once. ICAI will verify the same and refund the excess amount, if any, paid by you.
