ICAI Issues Revised FAQs On UDIN

ICAI has issued revised FAQs on Unique Document Identification Number (UDIN). This is the third edition of FAQs on UDIN.

To curb the malpractices of certification by non-CAs by impersonating themselves as CAs, the ICAI has come out with an innovative concept of UDIN i.e. Unique Document Identification Number which has been implemented in phased manner. It will secure the certificates/reports/ document attested/certified by practicing CAs. This will also enable the Regulators/ Banks/ Third parties to check the authenticity of the certificates/ reports/ documents.

The 18- digits UDIN is a system generated random number with specific syntax i.e YY MMMMMM AANNNAANNN. For e.g. 19304576AKTSBN1359, where

First 2 Digits are YY – Last 2 digits of the Current Year (19 for the year 2019)

Next 6 Digits are MMMMMM – ICAI’s Membership No. (304576 in this case)

Last 10 Digits are AANNNAANNN –Alpha-numeric generated randomly by the system (AKTSBN1359)
