Please check the bulk/spam mail folder for a recent mail with the subject “login ID password for ICAI examination”. Else you can contact the Help Desk at 18603450112 (for users of BSNL/MTNL lines) or 0120-3054851, 3054852, 0120-3054853,835 or send an email to onlineexamforms @ icai.in. Do quote your Student Registration number, Name, Fathers Name and Date of Birth while seeking these details. As per new TRAI regulations SMS will not be delivered on the same day to those candidate who register after 7 PM. SMS related to their User ID / Password will be delivered to the mobile number next day morning after 7 AM.


10. 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.


11. 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 18603450112 (for users of BSNL/MTNL lines) or 0120-3054851, 3054852, 0120-3054853,3054835 or send an email to onlineexamforms @ icai.in. Do quote your Student Registration number, Name, Fathers Name and Date of Birth while seeking these details.


12. I am not able to login and fill up the form even after getting the login-id and password.

 

  • Check the opening page to see if there are messages or alerts that inform you that the on-line system is temporarily unavailable.
  • Check that you are using the correct login ID and password to access your account.
  • Check your acknowledgement e-mail for your login-id and password ( including the suffix such as FNL, IPC etc) and password to ensure that you are using the correct one.

 


13. 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.

14. 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 onlineexamforms @ icai.in. 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.


15. I logged into my application and all the information I had previously entered is gone. What do I do?


This has most likely happened because you created two accounts (which is technically a very remote possibility) and have logged into the wrong one. Please make sure you have used the correct login-id and password to access your account.


Payment related queries:

16. What is the exam fees?
Details Final Intermediate (IPC)

17. 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.


18. 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.


19. 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.


20. What is the late fee?


In addition to the exam fee as mentioned above, you will have to pay a late fee of Rs 500/-(USD 11/- as the case may be), if the form is submitted during the period from 27-08-2013 to 02-09-2013.


21. 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, if any, for a single student, 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.


Important dates:

22. What is the last date for submission of forms?


Last date for submission of on-line/physical forms without late fee – 26-08-2013 
Last date for submission of on-line/physical forms with late fee – 02-09-2013

Last date for receipt of the on-line PDF document (without late fee) – 30-08-2013
Last date for receipt of the on-line PDF document (with late fee) – 06-09-2013


23. Does on-line registration close at 5.30 P.M. on the last date or at midnight on the last date?


On-line registration closes at 5.30 P.M. on 2nd september, 2013 exam. Hence, take care to see that you fill in your on-line form early enough and do not rush at the last minute.


Generation of PDF:

24. The word PROVISIONAL is appearing on the PDF. Why is it so?


The word provisional is appearing because while creating your login-id the date of birth did not match with particulars in our database. for now, you just need to attach the copy of latest registration letter with the PDF for us to verify your registration number. Do get in touch with your regional office to confirm and get your particulars corrected in the database so that you do not face this issue next time


25. How do I know that my on-line registration is successful? Do I get any acknowledgement upon submission of on-line form?


Upon successful completion of on-line registration, a message appears on the computer screen stating that your transaction is successful and giving further instructions on how to take a print out of your on-line application and send us. You can take a print out of the same and keep on your record. You can also check the status of your application on-line.


26. I have filled the on-line form and paid the exam fee on-line. Do I still have to take a print out and send it to ICAI and if yes, where should I submit it?


Yes. Even if you have filled the exam form on-line, you will be required to take a print out of your on-line application form, affix your photograph and specimen signature on the same at the appropriate place, get the same attested by a Chartered Accountant/Principal.

Intermediate (IPC) Exam candidates can get their forms certified by a Gazetted Officer, also.

Prateek a black pen is usually advised to fill up the form, because your exam application is scanned by a special software which identifies the black ink which is relatively indelible. Don't worry, now that your form is already sent, the Institute will take care of the issue. Study well for your examination. Good luck.
