Chairman's Message  
Respected Members,

In the world, take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, Give help, Give Service and give every little thing you can with any want of return or any conditions. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as god gives us. These thought provoking lines by Dr. Swami Vivekanand are a source of inspiration to continue the good work by all our professional brothers and sisters.

I understand that in this era of high competition, the members of our fraternity are currently busy with completing the Tax Audits and other regulatory compliances for our clients, but I also believe that Chartered Accountants are the only professionals in the country who are known for the selfless service to all. As for professionals, the work season and challenges never end, similarly for Branch no month is left silent. The branch in the hectic month of September too ensured that the service above self motive is continued and members continuously share each other benefits with the fellow colleagues.

Seminar on Code of Ethics & Information Technology : The month began with a very important seminar on Code of Ethics of ICAI along with a unique session on growth of practice through involvement of Information technology in our professional lives. I am glad that the members took the benefit of the same and appreciated it at large.

Interactive Meet with CFO’s & CEO’s: It was an historic moment for the Nagpur Branch to have organized an event for the first time wholly and solely dedicated to the Members in Industry. We all have always considered the members in industry to be our real flag holders and with efforts of the Committee for Members in Industry & Businesses, The branch successful hosted the first interactive Meet with CFO’s & CEO’s which was attended by over 100 Chartered Accountants representing various industries in the region.

Study Circle Meetings: I am also grateful to the members and more particularly the speaker CA Dilip Lohiya who took up the task for making members aware about the various business deductions available in the Income Tax Act so that members can undertake Tax Audits in a much confident manner.

Felicitations: The month of September also saw the change of guards at the office of Hon Pr. Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Nagpur with respected Asha Agrawal Madam taking over the charge of the office. Nagpur Branch was the first body to have welcomed her to Nagpur and discussed various prepositions with respect to Income Tax Act. Further we also had the opportunity to welcome and greet Shri M M Kokane, Jt Commissioner of State GSt on behalf of the professional fraternity of Nagpur.

Career Counselling: One agenda which the entire committee has been very serious about this year is to guide the new entrants in the CA Course so that they can take up decisions confidently. I am glad under the leadership of CA. Jiten Saglani the Branch conducted career counseling programmes at Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Modern School – NEERI, Tata Parsi High School, Tata Parsi Jr. College, Swaminarayan School,Pannalal Devidiya High School, Hislop College, G S College, Amalokchand College & South Point School.

WICASA Activities: the dedicated team of WICASA continued it activities throughout the month with Mock Tests, One Day Revisionary classes, Ganesh Festival, Practical Assessment Training Exams making the month memorable.

With the Diwali Festival coming up, enthusiasm amongst all is sure to each the highest level. The Dussera & Diwali Festivals celebrates the victory of good over evil. The light that illuminates our homes and hearts would definitely empower all of us to commit ourselves to good deeds and we continue to give our help, love and service for everyone at all times.

Always Smiling,
CA Umang V Agrawal
