The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has been continuously evolving ways to automate and re-engineer processes in order to make transactions easier and user friendly for CA fraternity.
One such step has been the creation of SSP (Self Service Portal), an initiative from ICAI to make applications (Forms) and transactions (Services) - faster and easier. The full scale Student and Member / Firm Services by ICAI will be put to implementation starting third week of May 2019.
ICAI has scheduled a one-time migration activity from old system to new system from 6th May 2019. The entire IT Systems (including e-services) with respect to Members and Student Services will not be available between 6th May to 22nd May 2019 and the Regional Offices will not be able to process any form or any other transaction. However the membership renewal link will be available and Members will be able to make fee payments through online mode. However New Students of Foundation Course and Direct Entry will also be able to register.
From 22nd May, 2019 (Wednesday), ICAI will accept only Online Application forms only through e-services at the link https://www.icai.org/new_post.html?post_id=5509 on the website www.icai.org.
All members are requested to update and validate their e-mail address and mobile number (one time activity) before 6th May 2019 to ensure access to the new system, as all transactions henceforth in the new system will be OTP based transactions.
