My Dear Professional Colleagues and Friends,
I humbly wish you all the finest greetings of the seasons. Being 44th Chairman of The Surat Branch of WIRC of ICAI, I am grateful to the branch, its Managing Committee Members, Central Council Members and Regional Council Members for bestowing this exceptional honor on me. I accept it in all humility on behalf of all my colleagues, as they are the true architects of our success with a very good blend of individual development and civic mindedness which I believe is essential for the fostering “Spearheading Professional Excellence” as laid down by our Torch Bearer Honorable CA ShriManojFadnis –President and Vice President, CA. M Devaraja Reddy. Surat being the second largest branch of the Gujarat having more than 2900 Members and 12000 students are sure to follow and reach the precious guidance of the torch bearers to draw the future road map and achieving it.
The Norms on eligibility, empanelment and selection of Statutory Bank Auditors in Public Sector Banks are the same as in operations since long. Change in the new regulation is that Bank Management shall appoint the eligible auditors as per new norms. We have specifically arranged a Full Day Seminar on the Bank Branch Audit on 28th of the March-15, which shall definitely augment the working knowledge of ourmembers for statutory as well as concurrent audits.
It is noteworthy that for carving the precious educational path of the students, an advanced Information Technology Training has been prescribed for CA Final Students by our alma Institute, and in compliance of the same, we have successfully started three batches of the Advanced ITT to train our students before November 2015 examination.
