Thursday, January 24, 2019

It has been noticed that financial documents/ certificates attested by third person misrepresenting themselves as CA Members are misleading the Authorities and Stakeholders.

ICAI is also receiving number of complaints of signatures of CAs being forged by non CAs. To curb the malpractices, the Professional Development Committee of ICAI has implemented in phased manner an innovative concept of UDIN i.e. Unique Document Identification Number. All Certificates are being made mandatory with effect from 1st February, 2019 as per the Council decision taken at its 379th Meeting held on 17th – 18th December, 2018.

Full time Practicing CAs can register themselves by visiting at https://udin.icai.org/ and generate UDIN by registering the certificates attested/certified by them. Therefore, members are advised to register the documents certified by them and get these secured.
