Dear Professional Colleagues,
‘Every Summer has a Story’. And this summer India had a great story. As the curtains were drawn on the biggest festival of democracy, history was created. the incumbent Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi retained power for the consecutive second term with a landslide victory. My heartiest congratulations to Shri Narendra Modi for the impressive electoral win. Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say, that your first victory was just luck – Shri A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. These election results are testament to his able leadership in the largest economy of the world. He has dreamt about new India and made every citizen of the country believe that a new India would be created in the next 5 years as India moves to th celebrate its 75th year of independence. But at the same time voters also have equal responsibility to create the new India.
At the maiden address by the Prime Minister to his team he said “We have worked for ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’, now we have to strive for ‘sabka vishwas’. One of the impor tant values of Char tered Accountants is vishwas (trust). ‘Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair’ The trust gives Chartered Accountants respect in the society and it is our responsibility that we maintain the trust that every stakeholder has put in us.
If you salute your duty, you no need to salute anybody, but, if you pollute your duty, you have to salute everybody – Shri A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.

Personal satisfaction is the most important ingredient of success - Denis Waittey
I am gaining satisfaction as the process of serving members of the region is accelerating and gaining speed. To deliver quality services we should never allow the student in us to die. Considering this, at WIRC we have organized various contemporary seminars, workshops & lecture meetings. The stupendous performance of WIRC can be seen by the record number of participation in various programs viz, Seminar on Returns & Audit under GST, seminar on International Taxation, Workshop on RERA, Seminar on Forensic Audit, etc.
We have organized two interactive meets with Income Tax Authorities on Statement of Financial Transactions (SFTs) and Latest Developments in Filing TDS Returns, where we discussed the issues and challenges faced by members in SFT transaction and TDS with deputed officials of Income Tax.
We shall be doing GST Audit for the first time for the benefit of members and to support them for conducting GST Audits, WIRC has published a “Guide to GST Annual Return & Audit” well in time. This publication was released simultaneously at three locations - Mumbai, Nagpur and Vadodara. This is an excellent publication contributed by stalwarts in the profession. I appreciate the efforts of contributors and team WIRC for compilation of this guide in a timely manner.
