About RRC

It has been a memorable and successful journey of commemorative 5 decades for a concept called Residential Refresher Course, coined by veterans of BCAS and replicated by CA fraternity all around India. BCAS aimed at popularising the concept of study, recreation and networking through RRCs, has brought many refinements over the past five decades in its format, content and packaging. Since inception, BCAS had been disseminating knowledge as its vision. Year after year the illustrious presidents at BCAS have passed the baton far and wide with upping the ante for quality and finesse at each progressive RRC. The Residential Refresher Course started in the year 1969 and the journey from thereon has been exhilarating and knowledge enriching.

But in important milestones, in all those times when the person really lived and not merely existed. So it is also with Institutions. So far as our Bombay Chartered Accountants Society (BCAS) is concerned, its life has been full of events, but one of the most outstanding, memorable and recurring event is the Annual Residential Refresher Course (RRC).

52 Glorious Years – It is challenging to be relevant over five decades for a concept called Residential Refresher Course (RRC), coined by veterans of BCAS and replicated by the CA fraternity all around India. BCAS, an institution which is a pioneer in popularising the concept of the study, recreation, and networking through RRCs has brought many refinements over the past five decades in its format, content and packaging. It is undoubtedly a very momentous milestone to be achieved when we hold the 52nd RRC of BCAS at Hotel ITC Mughal, Agra from Thursday, 3rd January 2019 to Sunday, 6th January 2019.

Since inception, BCAS has been disseminating knowledge as its VISION. Year after year the illustrious Presidents at BCAS have passed the baton far and wide with upping the ante for quality and finesse at each progressive RRCs. The Residential Refresher Course (RRC) of the Society started in the year 1969 under the President ship of Respected Shri P. N. Shah. The journey from thereon has been exhilarating and knowledge enriching. The 51st Golden Jubilee RRC held at the legendary 5-star luxury Hotel Dreamland, Mahabaleshwar, was attended by 100 members from all across India. As is the hallmark of BCAS RRCs, this one was also a memorable and knowledge enriching experience.

One can say that the Residential Refresher Courses have always imbibed the spirit of LEARN:

  1. Leisure;
  2. Enrichment;
  3. Accomplishment;
  4. Relaxation; and
  5. Networking.

The growing popularity of RRCs is due to the efforts made to conceptualize great thoughts on improving the content and format of RRCs. It is therefore very aptly said, “Great thoughts converted to practice will become great accomplishments.”

  • About Past RRC

Journey to the 52nd Residential Refresher Course is huge achievement for any voluntary organisation. Way back in 1969, when the first Residential Refresher Course was organised, nobody would have thought that they were sowing a seed which would become a vast banyan tree.

Bombay Chartered Accountants Society (BCAS) can be considered as a pioneer in conceiving the idea of holding Residential Refresher Course for professionals in India. It was during the year 1968-69 that the Management Committee of BCAS organized the first such course at Rugby Hotel at Matheran in April, 1969 and since then, there was never looking behind. With each passing year, there was a new chapter added to the history of RRC. The idea is to give opportunity to all member participants to study the subject useful for the profession in an informal atmosphere at a place away from their place of work and without any disturbance from family members. 12000+ Chartered Accountants have benefited through this educative initiative.
