The Institute of Internal Auditors-India (IIA-India) is affiliated to its parent body, The Institute of Internal Auditors, USA (IIA-Inc). IIA-India is a non-profit professional organisation dedicated to the advancement and development of the internal auditing profession in India, in sync with the highest standards propagated by its parent body. IIA-India was founded about three decades ago, starting first in Bombay, and soon expanded with the setting up of four additional chapters-Delhi, Calcutta, Madras & Bangalore. In June 2007, one new Chapter at Hyderabad has been established. Together, these six Chapters represent IIA-India, which in turn is the National Affiliate of IIA Inc.. Most Chapters have in addition, at least one 'Audit Club' attached to it (with less than 100 members in each Audit Club), which operate from cities falling within their respective geographical region. This process facilitates local programs/meetings with minimal time/cost on the part of the members, given the size and spread of the country. The Secretariat of IIA-India is currently based in New Delhi. The present membership strength is more than 5000, which includes members drawn not only from trade, industry and practice, but also comprises non-accountants, representing multi-disciplinary professional skills so as to fully meet the diverse business challenges.
