The Chartered Accountants Day or CA Day is celebrated on July 1 every year. This aims to commemorate the establishment of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) by the Parliament in 1949.

The adjoining video clip had a voiceover from the Prime Minister in Hindi. PM Modi could be heard saying, “Indian chartered accountants are known worldwide for their higher understanding and financial skills.”
“There are four purushartha in our Shastras - Dharma, Artha, Kaam and Moksha. When we discuss Dharma and Moksha, sages come to the foreview, similarly, chartered accountants are responsible to show the correct path for economy related subjects”.
Calling Chartered Accountants the "architects of the nation’s economy", Prime Minister Modi likened them to doctors, as they devote their lives to uplift the economic health of an entire country.
The video concluded with Modi extending best wishes to the CA community for the establishment of the ICAI.
