Firstly if you want to take admission on any subjects, you can take its coaching. Further type “ca foundation registration” on google. You will find a link as “icai.org”. Click on that and select the first option. Further you have to fill your forms and attach your photo, signature, class 10 and class 12 admit card and school leaving certificate. Then they will ask for payment. Pay it by debit or credit card. Lastly they will give you a registration outlay. Please xerox it and submit it to a ICAI institute(for North East and West Bengal, the center is in KOLKATA, MAIDAN. Then a mail will be send to for the registration number and a link by which you can order your study materials vi internet ICAI website, i.e., icai-cds.org. Thank You.
