Formed on 10.06.1981, formally inaugurated by CA V Rajaraman, the then President of ICAI, Thrissur Branch of SIRC has never looked back, since then. With a humble beginning with 60 members under the leadership of CA V Sukamara Menon & CA CK Vasudevan, the first Branch Chairman and Secretary respectively, the Chapter has expanded multifolds with over 750 members and around 4000 students.
The Branch ensures continuous knowledge updation of its members by conducting various seminars and study circle meetings on current topics in taxation, accounting, law and auditing. The Branch also meets social obligations by arranging various charitable and social activities. Our spacious seminar hall that occupies up to 300 persons has been a witness to many mega functions and all the activities of the branch.
The Branch equips and encourages the students to excel in academics as well as in profession. Considering its meritorious activities the branch was awarded the BEST SICASA Br of SIRC among medium sized Branches for nearly 8 years. The goodwill, the reputation and the facilities that the branch enjoys currently are the fruits of the toil of senior members, past office bearers of the branch, the Council members of the Institute and also the dedicated staff working with our institute office. The student committee of the branch under SICASA also engages in the development of professional and cultural skills.
