My dear professional colleagues,
It is a privilege for me to be the 39th Chairman of the Alappuzha Branch of SIRC of ICAI and I thank my Committee members for reposing confidence in me and electing me as Chairman. I pray to Almighty to give me enough abilities, strength and courage to take this position and prove worthy of the confidence that members at large have placed in me.
It is the incomparable contributions of our former Chairmen that have built strong foundation for our branch and their integrity and brilliance led to the phenomenal growth of our branch. I express heartfelt gratitude to our immediate past Chairman CA. Abbas P.M who with his ingenious leadership and distinctive guidance further strengthened the foundation of our Branch.
Accounting and finance is one of the twelve champion services sector that the Indian Government is focusing to boost India’s growth to next level. Members of Indian accounting profession have significant technical competence that is of substantial use by the businesses in India as well as by businesses globally and can be a great catalyst for change and make India Aatmanirbhar.
Our nation is aiming to become a 5 trillion economy within few years and the country will require many more Chartered Accountants to cater various requirements of Governments, entrepreneurs and general public. ICAI, being a true Partner in Nation Building, has the responsibility to provide future Chartered Accountants who will be equipped to provide professional services to its stake holders with utmost quality and impeccable integrity. Alappuzha Branch of ICAI, in collaborations with schools and colleges in Alappuzha, will endeavour a career awareness programme for students who aspire to become a Chartered Accountant. Branch will also take a lead role in providing coaching classes, orientation programmes and classes to develop communication skills of students.
In a world, which is changing rapidly, in order to be relevant, our members are also required to change, adapt themselves to the new situation and learn continuously. Alappuzha branch will play an instrumental role in providing CPE events to its members, on relevant subjects, through out this year.
As we all know, last year was an unprecedented year and the shockwaves sent to the economy by the pandemic can still be felt. It is essentially to be optimistic and persistent in our effort towards restabilising the economy and fuelling the wheel of growth once again. During the year, my focus will be to organise programmes which will enable our members and student to meet the challenges of a post pandemic era. I hope all our members and students will be part of our relentless pursuit to make ICAI a great Institution and a national asset which incubates valuable human resources for the country and thereby enable the nation to enjoy its demographic dividend.
I extend my best wishes to you and your families for a very bright and joyful year.
Jai hind……Jai ICAI
Thank you ,
