The Bahrain Chapter of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (BCICAI) was conceived in 1985 and held its first official program in April 1986. Over the years the BCICAI has grown from strength to strength and now has a membership of over 450 members and is now the largest organized professional body of Indians in Bahrain.

The members of the BCICAI are spread over industry, audit and consulting organizations in Bahrain. Many government, quasi-government, public and private organizations who employ our members place great reliance on their high level of professional competence and their contribution to the decision making process.

The BCICAI also undertakes the responsibility of co-coordinating with ICAI and the Embassy of India, Kingdom of Bahrain in the conduct of the ICAI's examinations in Bahrain. The first Common Proficiency Test (CPT) was conducted in Bahrain during June 2009.

The BCICAI continually holds seminars and events such that our members can enhance their technical skills, personal and professional development and obtain their required CPE credits.

The Chapter organizes an annual International Conference to share knowledge in the region and increase interaction between members in different countries.

The BCICAI is managed by an Executive Committee of nine elected and two nominated members. The members of the committee are elected by the members on an annual basis. The elected members of the committee unanimously nominate the other two other members, to assist in the functioning of the BCICAI
