Recommendatory dress code for members of ICAI

Feb '07
With a view to ensure dignity in appearance and as a part of brand building of the profession, the Council of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has prescribed the following dress code:

- Male members may wear Indian National dress (i.e. a long buttoned up coat on dhoti or churidar pyjama) or full sleeves shirts with trousers and shoes.

- Female members may wear saree or salwar kamiz or trousers and shirt.

- Members are encouraged to wear a suit or a blazer with tie (preferably of ICAI) as may be appropriate to the occasion.

- Where, however, members appear before any judicial forum and they have been prescribed a dress for appearing before such forum, then such dress shall apply in lieu of the dress mentioned above.

- Similarly, in respect of members in employment the dress shall be governed by the rules, if any, prescribed by the concerned organisation, in lieu of the dress mentioned above.

- Considering that the purpose of prescribing the dress code is to uphold the dignity and to enhance decorum, members are particularly required to adhere to the dress code when they represent before any statutory authority or when attending a business meeting or important events. On all other occasions, members are advised to be properly dressed in their professional capacity.

Official sources informed that dress code prescribed by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has received an overwhelming response from its members. A special word of thanks was also extended to the media in increasing the awareness envisaged by ICAI.
