Forthcoming Events

Looking forward to the coming months, we have planned an extensive list of programmes for the benefit of Members & Students. We will be hosting Certificate Course on Forensic Accounting & Fraud Prevention organized by Digital Accounting & Assurance Board and Certificate Course on Concurrent Audit of Banks organised by Internal Audit Standards Board of the ICAI.

Result of CA Final (Existing and Revised Scheme) Examination held in May 2018 and Foundation Examination and Common Proficiency Test (CPT) held in June 2018 have been declared. I congratulate all successful candidates, including the rank-holders. However, I would like to convey to all candidates who could not qualify despite their hard work, to plan and study efficiently and work harder, which will eventually help them in achieving success.

I would also like to congratulate everyone on the occasion of Parsi New Year (also known as Nauroj), Idu’ l Zuha (also known as Bakr-Id), Onam and Raksha Bandhan, which fall in August this year. Let us celebrate these together, since these are our festivals, those of our country. 

Shaheed Bhagat Singh had said: “Revolution is an inalienable right of mankind. Freedom is an imperishable birthright of all. Labour is the real sustainer of society…” Let us embrace and celebrate the idea of independence forever. 

I wish all of you a very happy INDEPENDENCE DAY.

Thanks & Warms Regards

CA. Sumeet Doshi
