6. How do I register on-line?

The steps involved in on-line registration are detailed on the home page on the portal under “Apply Online for Nov, 2016 >> How To Apply Online for Exams”. Visit
Do take care of the following:

DO NOT OPEN MORE THAN ONE SESSION AT THE SAME TIME ON THE SAME COMPUTER WHILE FILLING THE ONLINE FORM. ie; do not fill more than one form at the same time on the same computer even if you are filling the two applications using different browsers or different tabs of the same browser.

Clear the temporary internet files and cookies before filling up each form.

Fill up the form at a suitable time and from a location where you have a good bandwidth available using browsers Internet Explorer versions (7.0 onwards), Mozilla Firefox(4.0 onwards), Google Chrome(20.0 onwards) or Safari(3.2 onwards). Do NOT fill the form using mobile phones.

7. I am already registered with ICAI in the on-line exam registration portal, when I applied for an earlier attempt. Can I use the same log in ID and password this time?

No. You cannot use the user ID and password that you used during an earlier attempt since they change from exam to exam.

8. I forgot / did not get my password. What should I do?

Click on the “Forgot/did not get password” on the login screen. After selecting the exam applied and entering your registration number and date of birth, the email will be resent to you. If you continue to experience difficulties, you may contact the Help Desk at 18004192929 or 0120-3054851, 3054852, 3054853, 3054835, 4953751, 4953752, 4953753, 4953754 or send an email to Do quote your Student Registration number, Name, Fathers Name and Date of Birth while seeking these details.

9. While creating the user ID, I am directed to submit a provisional application? Why is it so?

Your identity as a student of ICAI is validated through your ten digit registration number ( like NRO0123456) , name of the course and your date of birth that you had entered while creating the user ID. If these fields do not match with that in the Institute’s database, the system would not provide you with user ID and password for submitting your on-line exam form.

Hence, please ensure that you fill in your student registration number as per the registration letter sent to you. You are advised to keep a copy of the letter from Board of Studies, ICAI registering you as a student of ICAI ready so that you can fill your registration number correctly.

Also ensure that you fill in your date of birth, as per the documents submitted by you to the Institute at the time of registration.

In case your details do not match with our records, we shall still issue the user ID and password, you will be permitted to submit a provisional application, subject to verification of documentary evidence.

Some of the errors committed by candidates while filling the on-line forms are as follows:

  • Your unique registration number typed on the on-line form may be different from the one that is communicated to you by the Board of Studies of the Institute.
  • Your unique registration number consists of 10 digits, i.e 3 alphabetical characters and 7 digits prefixed, of which the first digit is a “0” (zero). If you type “O” instead of “0” (zero), your identity cannot be validated by the system.
  • The date of birth you enter in the form may be different from the date of birth on the records of the Institute.

10. Who do I contact for technical support for my on-line application?

If you have successfully logged into the on-line application and need technical support, you can contact the Help line numbers mentioned on the home page or send an email to They will respond via email as soon as possible ( and within one business day). Please note that the Technical Help Desk can only answer technical questions; they cannot answer questions related to the exam, eligibility etc. Do quote your Student Registration number, Name, Fathers Name and Date of Birth while seeking these details.

11. I do not have credit/debit cards. What do I do?

Someone else can pay your exam fees, as long as you have their permission to do so.

Take care to give your details when filling in the on-line form. When paying for your exam, we’ll ask you for the cardholder’s details.

12. Can I use internet banking? How do I pay the exam fees on-line?

No. Payment of exam fees through internet banking is not permitted. You can make payment of exam fees by using master/visa/maestro credit/debit cards.

13. Can I make payment of exam fees by DD along with on-line forms?

No. Payment of exam fees by DD is not permitted along with on-line forms. You have to make on-line payment by using master/visa/maestro credit/debit cards only. However, you can make payment of exam fees by DD while you use physical OMR forms.

14. What is the late fee?

In addition to the exam fee as mentioned above, you will have to pay a late fee of Rs 600/-(USD 10/- as the case may be), if the form is submitted during the period from 24-02-2016 to 02-03-2016.

15. I filled in the on-line form and also paid the exam fees. However, when I saw the credit card/bank statement, I realized that the amount of the exam fees has been debited more than once in my account. It appears that I might have paid the exam fees more than once. Can I get a refund of the excess amount paid by me? What is the procedure for claiming the excess exam fee payment arising on account of multiple payments/lost transactions etc?

Multiple payments received by us, if any, for a single student (with same registration number), will be identified by the system and are refunded for the credit of the respective accounts from where they originated, by the office, within 45 days of the last date for submission of forms.

In case you have made payment of exam fees more than once and that is received by us for the same student registration number and you do not get a refund within 45 days from the last date for submission of forms, you can claim a refund of the excess amount paid by you, by writing to us within 60 days from the last date for submission of forms, along with documentary evidence, such as bank/credit card statement, of having paid the exam fees more than once. ICAI will verify the same and refund the excess amount, if any, paid by you.

16.Do I need to send any documents along with the print out?

Yes. You need to send the following along with the print out of your on-line application form, with photo, signature and attestation as required.

  • Certificate of service ( applicable to Final candidates only)

17. Can I change the particulars ( such as centre opted, medium opted or group opted etc) after submission of the on-line form?

No. Change of centre, medium or group is not permitted at this stage. Hence, it is suggested that you may check whether the details filled in by you are correct, before you submit the on-line form. You are also advised to keep a copy of the on-line form submitted by you, for your record, in your own interest. Please refer Guidance Notes and Institute’s web site for announcements regarding ‘Correction Window’
