Chairman's Communique . . .


Dear Professional Colleagues,

After a long hiatus when we were busy with Tax Audit in the busy month of September and so many other things, now the time has come to be actively involved in the activities of the branch to enhance our professional skills.

We are delighted to know that Sri. Narendra Modiji, Hon'ble Prime Minister of our great Nation has launched the ambitious branding campaign “Make in India” on 25thSeptember at New Delhi to make India a manufacturing hub.  Our beloved Prime Minister Modiji mentioned that, FDI means First Develop India. As we CAs are considered as partners in Nation Building, on behalf of Bangalore Branch, I appeal all our Members to actively involve ourselves in 'Make in India' Campaign to materialise the dream of our Prime Minister and make our incredible India a developed Nation.

145th Birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhiji falls on 2nd Oct and when October comes, we Indians always recollect his good words and good deeds. He sacrificed his entire life to save our great incredible India from the clutches of Britishers and made an independent India in the year 1947. Hence as a mark of respect to our Father of nation, let us celebrate Gandhi Jayanthi on 2nd October.

At the same time our Hon'ble PM Modiji said that, he would launch Swachh Bharat, the clean India drive on 2nd October which, we can say a real tribute to Gandhiji. Our PM also appealed every citizen of this great country to devote 100 hours every year towards materialising the dream of CLEAN INDIA Mission and has requested to spread the message. Hence I sincerely request our professional friends to participate in large numbers in CLEAN INDIA MISSION.

In the midst of our busy work on Tax Audit, end of September was a historic & proud moment because of the successful launch of MANGALYAAN. India is the 4th Country to send a satellite to Mars but remember we are the only country succeeded in the very first attempt. Hope this expedition will reveal more information of the Mars and will explore new frontiers in space science. We must congratulate the entire team of Scientists of ISRO for the remarkable achievement.

Infact those individuals and organisations will succeed who have mastered the art of continuous learning and comprehend the rapid changes in the most professional way. Hence after this busy month of September we have to hone our professional skills. Keeping this in mind, we have organised a series of fruitful programs which pave way to sharpen our professional skills to sustain the quality of our prestigious profession.
