CBSE is intensive, ICSE is extensive.
CBSE is available almost everywhere, so good for frequently tranferable people.
ICSE good for giving a generalised education to the child, whereas CBSE good for buildinga a base for admissons to IITs,NITs,etc.
ICSE has lot more of Project work as compared to CBSE
ICSE has a good stress on English literature, CBSE is more of businesslike in case of English.
ICSE is generally more expensive fee-wise.

I would suggest you to go for CBSE Board. Considering the quality of education they provide your child with a strong base for a bright academic future.
Both CBSE and ICSE are self-financed educational institutes with different syllabus, exams and education pattern. But the only vast difference between both the boards is that CBSE has been recognized by the Indian government and ICSE is not. The certificates of both institutions are globally valid but CBSE certificate has more importance than ICSE. Moreover, the ICSE syllabus is considered bit heavy as compared to CBSE. Also, all major entrance examinations follow the CBSE, which means ICSE students have another added disadvantage in taking competitive entrance exams for their future education. Unlike the ICSE, the CBSE syllabus is frequently upgraded with more relevant materials. Also, you can find limited schools with ICSE as compared to CBSE schools.
In addition, a number of institutes have been setup even online to help students w ...more

CBSE and ICSE can be compared along 6 key dimensions. Each has its own benefits and issues. Here is a comparison.
Spread or prevalence - CBSE is in 9000+ schools. This means easier to find schools when you relocate
Recognition by colleges - Both boards are equal on this dimension. So nothing to worry
Course content: Both have different focus. CBSE is more science and maths oriented while ICSE is well balanced, giving equal importance to arts, science too. Your call
Other elements are freedom and flexibility, teaching methodology, presence outside India and competitive exams.

Obviously the better option for any strean u choose would be ICSE
The syllabus is a bit vast but it will help you out a lot.
Even for jobs ICSE students are refered first. And per as competition ICSE schools are at the top.

Cbse board is better than icse for competitions and especially for people pursuing for medical and engineering because cbse board syllabus covers the syllabus of these exams.
