One can be member of both of these actuarial bodies at the same time. IAI & IFOA follow same syllabus, material and patterns for exams which allow to avail exemption benefits. i.e. if one has cleared a particular exam from the one Actuarial body then there is no need for you to clear it with another Actuarial body. It helps you clear the course sooner.

Even if you take membership from UK, all your exams are conducted in various cities of India only.
