There is a great sense of satisfaction as I introspect my year as Chairman of WIRC of ICAI. Many milestones have been achieved and there is a desire to serve our noble profession with even more enthusiasm. The experiences during the year were personally very exciting, with many goals and landmarks being achieved. Our efforts and positive results were testimony to our commitment and passion for service to the entire Region, ICAI and our nation.
This year was a landmark year for us. We, at WIRC, have been able to generate remarkable surplus by optimally utilising our available resources, hence we could create additional FD's of 3.70 crore during this year.
Our focus was and always will be on education and awareness. WIRC published a record 40,000+ books on various laws. The details of programmes and activities of WIRC were regularly communicated to the Regulators and we welcomed their presence.
I am also proud to state that I ensured and achieved 100% Grievance Resolution in 2017-18. All problems brought to us were promptly solved.
Our focus on providing best educational facilities for our students saw us support them via coaching classes and crash courses for CPT, IPCC & Finals. These were conducted at multiple locations at multiple times to ensure that our students could take advantage of these services.
I had envisioned having productive interactions with Central and State Ministries and Regulators across the spectrum. We were successful in meeting officers from the various departments. In the past year, we created a system of co-ordination with State Governments, Co-operative Societies and other relevant establishments.
I am happy to state that we were well received and heard by the various departments from time-to-time. We interacted and held trainings for Enforcement Directorate, Police Dept. i.e. A.T.S., EOW and Commissioner of Police, SEBI, Serious Fraud Investigation Office, Service Export Promotion Council, Income Tax Dept., GST Dept., B.S.E., N.S.E., R.B.I., ITAT, NCLT, CESTAT, Labour Laws Dept., Customs & Excise Department, MDs of Nationalised Banks, RoC, C&AG and State Election Commissioner to name a few. We were delighted to have Shri N. K. Bhola, Dir. Gen, MCA; Shri M. M. Juneja, Dir. (Inspection & Investigation), MCA; Shri M. K. Chakranarayan, Regional Director, MCA; Shri S. P. Kumar, RoC, Mumbai and CA. Rajesh Dalmia, Dy. Regional Director, MCAinteract with our members.
I have been privileged with the opportunity of leading this great Region. All that has been achieved has been possible only because of the support of Hon’ble President ICAI, CA. Nilesh Vikamsey; Hon’ble Vice-President ICAI, CA. Naveen N. D. Gupta; Central Council Members; my Office Bearers and my colleagues in the Regional Council; Committee Members of all Branches; leaders of the various Study Circles; each member of this Region & beloved students. I especially thank every member of my WIRC staff without whose untiring efforts and dedication, my success is incomplete.
I dedicate my success to the blessings of my parents Shri Lachhiramji Agarwal and my family members, my principal and mentor CA. Uttam Prakash Agarwalji, Past President, ICAI; CA. K. C. Jain, Past Chairman, WIRC; respected members of various Govt. Depts., my friends, relatives and well wishers, who have always supported my endeavours.
As I park my words and emotions, I express my gratitude for the enormous support and faith reposed in me by every member and student. I am confident that the incoming Office Bearers and this Council will take WIRC to greater heights and I offer my complete support to them.
Jai ICAI, Jai Hind!
With Warm Regards,
CA. Vishnu Agarwal
