Chairman's Message  
 
Dear Professional Colleagues,

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."

Things have been changing for everyone. Life is not the same as before. There is nothing in life which is permanent. Change is the only permanent. In these times of pandemic we have learnt a lot of lessons; family bonding, care, compassion, thinking about oneself, work from home, safety, security and many more. My appeal on behalf of Nagpur Branch of ICAI in these testing times to everyone.

Let’s follow the rules, Be Responsible!!
During this month, Nagpur Branch organized a Unique Women’s week wherein special 4 days of seminar were planned exclusively for Women CA members. Hon. Deputy Commissioner of Police Vinita Sahu, IPS guidance on safety and security for Women Members wherein she asked everyone to install “Pratisaad App” for self safety and security was the highlight. Strategies for success of Women CA’s by CCM CA Kemisha Soni & CA Dr. Sangeeta Pandit from Mumbai, Art of making lasting Impressions (a special session for grooming) by CA Priyanka Sharma from Ahmedabad and Professional Opportunities & networking capabilities by Vice Chairperson CA Drushti Desai and CA Shweta Jain from Mumbai were highly appreciated. Felicitation of 10 Senior most Lady CA’s of Nagpur Branch on the occasion of International Women’s Day was the most satisfying experience this year.

With the rise in Corona Cases at Nagpur, a lock down was imposed in Nagpur. We made various representations before Hon. Guardian Minister Shri Nitin Raut, Mayor Shri Dayashankar Tiwari, Standing Committee Chairman Shri Prakash Bhoyar and Deputy Commissioner NMC Shri Nirbhay Jain for allowing Chartered Accountants Offices to remain open during Lock down. We were granted the permission to open our offices during Lock down. Special Camp for vaccination of members had been arranged wherein members along with their immediate relatives were immensely benefited.

Interesting Bank Branch Audit seminar under the able guidance of CA Amarjeet Chopra, Past President, ICAI, CA Ajay Jain, CCM CA Shriniwas Josi, CA Chirag Bakshi, CCM CA C V Chitale was highly appreciated by all. Nagpur Branch created a Help Desk for Bank Branch Audit with Learned Chartered Accountants from our own city in the panel who helped members all over WIRC in resolving their queries at the time of Bank Audits. A big thanks to all these CA’s who provided their expert services to members in help.

For CA members and their family, Holi Milan program jointly with Akola Branch was organized on virtual platform and the entire video containing performances of members and their family members was hosted on Nagpur Branch You tube channel. There was a huge viewership of the vent and a satisfying part for we managing committee members wherein an event with virtual participation while following all safety norms was enjoyed by all members. We congratulate and thank each and every member and their families who participated in this event and made it a big success.

Respected Colleagues, this is a difficult time for all of us when our country is suffering adversely from a worldwide pandemic Corona; but CORONA is just a phase which would eventually pass but learning should never stop as it would make us a person we aspire to be in our future. Chartered Accountancy profession promises a challenging and highly rewarding professional life. It requires constant learning and practice to effectively evolve and excel in professional arena and that’s the reason we at Nagpur Branch would continuously organize programs for benefit of members.

We appeal to all of you to join this initiative of Nagpur Branch wherein we have released a Logo for creating awareness amongst people for Corona and follow all safety protocols.

We are looking forward to getting a positive response from your side to ensure we stay connected through this newsletter and in all our events to come.

I take this opportunity to sincerely wish all of you good health, safety and prosperity at all times. LETS BE POSITIVE & THINK POSITIVE

"When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars"

Stay Safe and Stay Blessed.

Professionally Yours,

CA Saket Bagdia
