ICAI- UDIN can be generated within 60 days of signing the audit report

What is UDIN?

It is a unique number generated on the UDIN portal for every certificate and other such documents that have been attested by a Chartered Accountant who’ve registered themselves on the portal.


How to Register on the UDIN portal?

Full time Practicing Chartered Accountants (CAs with COP) need to first register themselves on the UDIN portal in order to generate the UDIN for every document that is to be attested.  


Time Limit Extended from 15 days to 60 days

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) council has decided that a Unique Document Identification Number (UDIN) can be generated within 60 days of the signing of Audit Report. “ICAI Council has decided that UDIN can be generated within 60 days (in place of 15 days).  This is also in view of SQC and SA. A Detailed Notification will be hosted soon,”


It has been noticed that financial documents/ certificates attested by third persons misrepresenting themselves as CA Members are misleading the Authorities and Stakeholders. ICAI is also receiving a number of complaints of signatures of CAs being forged by non-CAs. To curb the malpractices, the Professional Development Committee of ICAI has implemented in a phased manner an innovative concept of UDIN i.e. Unique Document Identification Number
