Greetings of the day,
I feel extremely privileged to pen down my second communication as the Chairman of this esteemed Himachal Pradesh Branch of Northern India Regional Council of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India for the term 2018-19. I have been in the managing committee of the branch for the past 8 years, and have always tried to deliver as per best of my knowledge and ability in the best interest of the profession. Friends, I still firmly believe that it is the collective responsibility of the managing committee and members which can take the profession to new heights.
Dear Friends; this year on 26th of April, 2018, Senior IAS officer and honourable RCS HP, Dr. R.N. Batta Ji inaugurated our Member’s Directory of Himachal Pradesh Branch and with launching of Member’s Directory; much awaited demand of members of our branch got fulfilled. We have organised first ever Cricket Match in the history of our branch between CA-11 and Press-11 (Shimla) on dated 06th of May, 2018 at Durga Public School, Solan; in which members from Una, Kangra, Hamirpur, Shimla and Sirmour have participated with great zeal and spirit. In the period of four months since March, 2018; we have organised Seminars at Solan, Shimla and Hamirpur and in the future we are also planning to hold seminars at other places in the Himachal Pradesh. I feel really excited to share that I got an opportunity to serve as the Chairman of this Branch and I request you all to attend branch activities and seminars/conferences at large.
We have also organised a Career Counselling Programme with the help of CA. Rajesh Saxena ji at S.D. Sr. sec. School, Shimla for students from 9th class to 12th class on dated 13-06-2018; We have also organised historical Press conferences on critical issue of Independence in Bank Audits at Shimla and Hamirpur on dated 18th June, 2018; and on the same topic we have also circulated our memorandum submitted to honourable Prime Minister of India Sh. Narendra Modi Ji through Health Minister of India Sh. J.P. Nadda Ji amongst all the members of HP; and reply received from RBI on the same. In my opinion it is our duty to get informed all our fellow colleagues the initiatives taken by HP Branch.
On dated 26th of June, 2018 we have also organised a Sports Event in the Branch Premises in which Carrom and Chess games were being organised both for members and students in which we got overwhelming response from students as well as from members; I on behalf of Team HP ICAI congratulate all the winners of sports event and I firmly believe that in sports; winning or loosing is not important, participation is the key.
On 1st of July, 2018, we have celebrated 70th foundation day of our institute at Branch premises, Shimla and Solan. In CA day celebrations, we have flag hoisting at Shimla and Solan, honouring our senior member CA. I.P.
