As I have embarked in my role as the 12th Chairman of Vasai Branch of WIRC of ICAI, effective 16th February, I carry with me a sense of inherent pride and elation. I am equally conscious of the magnitude of the responsibility that the Chairman brings along. I am grateful to all my illustrious Predecessors for bringing profession to the stage where it is today. I am equally thankful to the Committee Members for reposing confidence in me to lead this great profession. Particularly, I owe gratitude to the outgoing Chairman CA. Nitesh Kothari for steering several initiatives for profession in the last year. It was indeed a learning time for me partnering in the consolidation measures of the Committee Members 2017-18, as Vice-Chairman.
I also wish & congratulate to the incoming President – CA. Naveen N D Gupta, Vice – President – CA. Prafulla Chhajed, the WIRC Office Bearer Team led by the Chairman – CA. Sandeep Jain, Vice – Chairman – CA. Priyam Shah, Secretary- CA. Purushottam Khandelwal & Treasurer- CA. Balkishan Agarwal and lastly the whole team of Vasai Branch of WIRC for the term 2018-19.
CA profession owes its sustainability to strong regimen of ethics. Time of disruptions is a time for introspection and taking corrective actions, if so needed. We have received enough media coverage due to various matters like Satyam, PNB etc. Let us all pledge to stand united in our task of being guardians of financial probity. As your first Chairman, I consider it my moral duty to start my first communication on a note of awareness to take all possible steps, to continue enjoying the confidence and trust of our stakeholders.
Branch had organized Seminar on Union Budget 2018 jointly with Direct Taxes Committee of ICAI. CA. N C Hegde (Vice Chairman of Direct Taxes Committee & CCM) graced the occasion and enlighten the area on Direct Taxes Provisions with respect to Union Budget. Also we had Felicitated Newly Qualified CA Members by gracious hands of CA. Vishnu Agarwal (Imm. Past Chairman, WIRC of ICAI) and his team.
Women regarded as first teacher of all human beings need to be positioned and empowered, where they are respected, both socially and professionally. Let us commit to achieve this objective in the best interests of the whole humanity. On occasion of Women’s Day, branch conducted event on “Shakti Ka Naam Nari” wherein special invitee Ms. Megha Mishra (Musical Artist & Filmfare Awards 2018: ‘Secret Superstar’ Wins Best Singer Award) graced the occasion.
The month of March is full of festivities. I extend my best wishes to you and your family members for a cheerful Holi, Mahavir Jayanti, Good Friday, Gudi Padava and Nowruz. Please note, while reminding us of our glorious past, all festivals inspire us to become benevolent and large-hearted human beings.
Let us celebrate our festivals in their true spirit and celebrate each other’s existence and well-being and work for inclusive growth.
