I wish to inform you that the counting of votes for election to the twenty third Council and twenty second Regional Councils will commence from 20th December, 2015. The venue for the Counting will be Institute’s premises at ICAI Bhawan, A-29, Sector 62, NOIDA – 201 309. The counting will start at 10.00 A.M. on each day and will continue till 5.30 P.M. or even beyond that time so that the entire process of counting of votes is completed and the results are declared latest by 15th January, 2016. Since it is not possible to indicate the exact time and date on which the counting for a particular constituency would conclude and consequently the counting for the next Constituency would be taken up, I am giving below the order and the estimated date on which the counting for a particular constituency would be taken up:-
|Sl. No.||Name of the Constituency and Regional Council||Estimated date on which counting will be taken up|
|1.||Western India Regional Constituency and Western India Regional Council.||20th December, 2015|

We may mention that on the 1st day of the counting of each Region, the Ballot Boxes and Postal Ballots will be dealt with simultaneously.
You may, if you so desire, attend the counting of votes of your Constituency either personally or through an authorised representative who should be a member of the Institute. In the latter case, a letter of authority, in the enclosed format, may please be sent through the concerned representative.
It may please be noted that your authorised representative should be one who is well versed not only with the provisions of the Chartered Accountants Act, 1949, the Chartered Accountants (Election to the Council) Rules, 2006 and the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 but also fully conversant with the counting process. Your authorised representative should be duly empowered to take any decision and/or make any commitment in writing on your behalf on the spot.
