As we enter a new year with renewed vigour, I am reminded of these immortal lines by the great poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan:
वर्ष नव, हर्ष नव, जीवन उत्कर्ष नव।
नव उमंग, नव तरंग, जीवन का नव प्रसंग।
नवल चाह, नवल राह, जीवन का नव प्रवाह।
गीत नवल, प्रीत नवल, जीवन की रीति नवल,
जीवन की नीति नवल, जीवन की जीत नवल!
The New Year’s Eve is a golden opportunity for all of us to look at life as a big picture, and that allows us to connect with things that are closest and dearest to us. I have had this opportunity too, and personally I have rediscovered my passion and dedication to this nation, this profession, and this society. It is with this firm resolve that we reaffirm out commitment towards the upliftment of this profession.
We have various events lined up for this month, and for the entire year coming ahead. Indore city has the honour of hosting the Pravasi Bharatiya Sammelan and the Global Investors Summit, and the ICAI is fulfilling its role in the nation building by contributing towards the knowledge and technical support for the PBS and GIS.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants is also preparing a booklet for the benefit of prospective investors to the summit. In this booklet, we wish to include a general brief about business laws in India and rules relating to FDI, sector wise rules applicable for various sectors and a general introductory brief for various laws including MSME, approvals required for establishing business in Madhya Pradesh. This booklet strives to include all the important aspects about business in MP.
As we enter this new year, we also wish to highlight that our branch has worked over the past several months for the benefit of students and members. In December, we hosted a Face-to-Face Interaction with the Torch Bearer of ICAI to understand the vision of the institute. Further, we also inaugurated the CA Gate for the CA Street. This will be a testimony to the importance and contribution of the Indore Branch towards the development of this city and a matter of pride for all the members of this profession from our beloved city. The Indore Branch and its committee members are grateful and thankful to the Indore Municipal Corporation for this endeavour and support.
We are fully committed towards continuing to work with the same passion. Once again, I wish a very happy and prosperous new year to you and your family!
