Dear Friends & Professional Colleagues

Success is achieved by development of our strengths, not by elimination of our weakness – Marilyn Vos Savant

The Statutory Bank Audits made the first week of April a shade busy, as many auditors had to travel across the length and breadth of the country to complete their Statutory Bank Audit compliances.

Mid April has witnessed a slew of New Year celebrations … beginning with Poila Baishakh , Bihu, Baishakhi Puthandi Ugadi, Gudi Padwa, Cheti Chand and a few others from the North of the country to the South. The celebrations reinforced our faith in life, in hope and for all things good and new.  Despite the unfortunate happenings in and around us we are full of hope of a new beginning, which such New Year signify. I am confident that with a growing youth population we are heading for a brighter days, as more youngsters take up positive and meaningful roles in the society, profession, business, politics and a host of other social activities - a healthy sign for our nation.
I have been fortunate to get every possible support and from all quarters, be it from council members, staffs and faculty members of our training programmes and students at every level and some very prolific speakers who have conducted seminars, workshops and a host of programmes in great ways.  

During the past month we have been able to conduct Seminars on various topics. The most important event of the past month was the organisation of the 5 Days Workshop on Companies Act where important topics like Board Report & CSR, Companies Amendment Act 2017 were discussed by Mr. Alok Samantarai, Regional Director (ER), Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Govt. of India, Shri Vijay Jhalani, CCM, ICAI, CS Rupanjana Dey. NAFRA & Professional Opportunities was discussed by  CA Uttam Prakash Agarwal , Past President, ICAI while Directors’ Disclosure and Board’s Report were discussed by CS Sanjay Kumar Gupta and XBRL by CS Rekha Agarwal. School Audit Seminar was attended by Shri Suhas Bhattacharjee, Jt. Director of Schools Education, Accounts & Audit, Dept. of Education, Govt. of WB. Insolvency and Bankruptcy code was also taken up last month in the presence of Mr. Shayama Prasad Chattopadhyay, Dy. Registrar, NCLT, Kolkata. The month ended with a programme designed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Govt. of India upon the measures taken by the Ministry for the Ease of Doing Business in India. The programme was attended by both Mr. Alok Samantarai, Regional Director (ER), Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Govt. of India and Mr. K G Joseph Jackson, Registrar of Companies , West Bengal. 
I would really like to stress again, that we professionals will be playing a pivotal role in the nation building, not only to bureaucrats but to industrialists as well as emerging sectors. We so need to gear up with remarkable efficacy since a sea of changes will be hitting us and with the wave of dynamism in the air, it would not be wrong to say that we are moving towards a change.

The need of this hour is to hold the element of leadership and influence very high, while exploring new professional horizons and paradigms with our time tested tradition of professional excellence, ethics and integrity in the service to our nation.

In this direction we at EIRC have intensified interactions with State Government, all Tax authorities, other regulators to reinforce our value addition and to see that our professionals are respected. In this month we have a series of programmes lined up like GST, Insolvency, Benami Transactions and other events.

Thanking you,
