Cuttack, also known as “Silver city of Orissa” for its silver filigree, established a branch about 30 years back as Orissa branch of Chartered Accountants of EIRC. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India has made its sojourn with a few members through the years to meet its goal of education and profession. Subsequently the branch was shifted to Bhubaneswar in the year 1982 as it had maximum members in comparison to Cuttack. With continuous efforts of several years by many of the senior members,  the Cuttack Branch was restarted in the year 1990 by Mr. Dalal as President in presence of all Central council members with. This was a unique occasion when a branch is formed in presence of full central council members.

At present the Branch has strength of over 150 members in practice with many large partnership firms. The branch has added many feathers to its cap.


It has successfully organized All India National Conference in December 2005 and 25th Regional Conference in January 2001. It has been awarded  the Best Branch Award thrice in the Eastern India Region in the year 1995-96, 2000-01 & recently for the year 2005-06 under the dynamic leadership of the then chairman Sri J.K. Sahoo, Sri K.C. Sethia and Sri H.K. More, respectively. It was also awarded the excellent performance certificate for the year 2001-02 under the chairmanship of Sri M.P. Mohapatra. The C.A Examination venture at CUTTACK is the oldest one in Orissa which has been functioning for last 25 years.

However, it was always a dream for all the members of  Cuttack  to have our own Branch premises. Our Past President,  Sri R. Bhupaty, laid the foundation stone on 25.01.04 for construction of the branch building at Bidanasi.


After many years of hard work by several members and other patrons and the unstinting support from ICAI and EIRC, this dream was fulfilled with the inauguration of the Branch Building at CDA on 22nd February, 2009, by the then President of our Institute, CA Uttam Prakash Agarwal. In the little time since then, it has grown into a well equipped and furnished office with modern facilities. It has several  need based Books and Journals to meet the demand of the members and students. It regularly conducts courses for students, and serves as a meeting ground for our members in Cuttack. It goes a long way in meeting the requirements of members and students of Cuttack and nearby areas.

Not content in resting on its laurels, the Branch undertook to complete the Information Technology Training Centre and was able to achieve its target by getting the IT Training Centre and Library completed and functional. The IT Training Centre and the Library were inaugurated on 30.08.2009 by the Sri Prafulla Chandra Ghadei, Hon’ble Minister of Finance & Excise, Orissa. The IT Training Centre has a capacity of 20 Students for each batch. Till Now 3 batches are completed and currently the 4th batch is going on. 78 students have been enrolled and taken the benefit of the facility in the 4 batches in each session.
