The recent landslide and floods in Uttarakhand have caused extensive devastation. A large number of people have died and thousands have been rendered homeless.
At this moment, the affected people in Uttarakhand need help to tide over the calamity that has fallen upon them, to survive and to rebuild their lives. In this scenario, ICAI has decided to stand with our distressed fellow countrymen, and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time. The employees of ICAI have offered to contribute in kind and on 26th June, 2013, we are flagging off truck load of relief material containing clothes, groceries and other necessities to Uttarakhand.
Besides the above, ICAI has opened a bank account exclusively for the purpose of collecting donations from members, students and others so that the same can be paid to Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF).
