On the eve of CA Day, celebrated on every 1st July, NIRC (Northern India Regional Council) of ICAI has successfully conducted a program, namely ‘CA Utsav’, aiming to share and exchange a sense of celebration and glory of the CA profession among CAs, CA educators and CA students . The program fetched an appealing participation of the people from the CA fraternity.


Dr. Harsh Vardan, Union Minister of Science and Technology, India was supposed to be chief guest, but however due to some reason, he was unable to make his presence at the program. CA Dev Raja Reddy, President ICAI was the chief guest for the program. Likewise, CA Nilesh Shivji, Vice-president ICAI, various other ICAI central council members, NIRC officials were the distinguished presence.


The program’s first half was initiated by PS Rathore, Motivational speaker, giving a motivational speech thereby helping the participants ignite their self-confidence. In the second half of the program, cultural acts ranging from singing to dancing entertained the audiences.


The program was conducted mainly focusing CA students so they get a sense of relax and relief from the daily hectic schedule and study, said CA Rajesh Sharma, ICAI central council member, while exchanging a talk with CA Sarokar. He further said, ”Ever since the establishment of CA professional body in the country, the country is regularly getting a good grip on the economic development. Diverse sector ranging from services to businesses have been benefited from this. CA’s contribution for the nations’ development is crucial”


Alike ever before the program gets a good participation of Nepali CA and CA students but this time it was low. Nepali CA students; Diwakar Pandey, Pradip Sagar Rokaya, Sunil Budhathoki, Suman Pandey, Rohit Gyanwali, Nabaraj Gautam, Nitesh Yadav, Madhav Neupane, Bigyan Regmi, Dilip Thapa, Suman Gyanwali  Sanjiv Siwakoti, Sharad Tiwari and Manoj Singh, totalling 14 students were the co-ordinators for the program. 



Suman Pandey, program co-ordinator, said, “Due to lack of proper advertisement and information among students, the program didn’t receive a good participation.” Likewise, Diwakar Pandey, another co-ordinator cited the same reason for the reduction in the number of Nepali students participation. He added, “The number of student coming to India from Nepal has become low as compared to previous year. May be that’s another reason for the low participation.” 



Playing the role of coordinator helps one to develop their interpersonal and management skill”, said Nabaraj Gautam, program coordinator. 



ICAI ever since its establishment has been celebrating July 1 as ‘CA Day’, every year.
