As you are aware, every year, Professional Development hosts an online form popularly known as MEF ie., Multipurpose Empanelment Form at www.meficai.org This year in order, to make the Members aware as to what information is going to flow from Institute’s records in MEF.
As the information field related to year of constitution and address, flows from Institute’s database and are non-editable fields, applicants are requested to kindly check these information thoroughly. In this regard, it is important to note that the Council of the Institute at its 242nd meeting held in April, 2004 had decided interalia as under:
"For the purposes of Empanelment in the C&AG Panel prepared by office of C&AG and Bank Branch Auditors’ Panel prepared by ICAI (for which Constitution Certificates as on 1st January are issued every year), no condonation of delay in submission of Form 18 beyond 31st January preceding the financial year under audit (e.g. 31st January, 2016 for empanelment for the year 2016-17) will be done by the Institute."Ł
We understand that the status of your firm as on 01.01.16 has been updated in your concerned Regional office. However, if you find any deviation from your actual status, kindly ensure that your status is updated on or before 25th May, 2016 with your concerned Regional Office. Soon after this MEF data verification process, MEF will be hosted at www.meficai.org
