Greetings from the EIRC of ICSI !
I would like to thank my colleagues in the Regional Council for reposing faith in me and elevating me to this august office of the Chairman of EIRC for the year 2020.

Today, when things are changing thick and fast, and the expectations from all stakeholders are sky rocketing on each passing day, I am confident that the Regional Council will rise to the occasion and continue to serve the profession with full enthusiasm and passion. I will humbly endeavour, with support of the Regional Council, Central Council and my esteemed predecessors, to discharge my responsibilities to nurture the profession and develop the Institute making sure in achieving Vision 2022.
Beginning of this month, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Union Budget 2020 and in her budget speech mentioned about Government plans to amend the Companies Act to decriminalise civil offences. I am sure, the profession is waiting eagerly on forthcoming amendments. As a country when we are heading towards to become $5 trillion economy in near future, we should embrace new opportunities with both hands which will come along with the growth in economy. Of course, the growth and prosperity come with the extra responsibilities. New amendments, higher corporate governance, artificial intelligence – they all need hand holding and guidance.
