Chairman Communication

CA Manish Gadia

Dear Professional Colleagues,

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all love of what you are doing or learning to do.”

WIRC is constantly striving to reach out to members, students and the professional community at large and interact with them to increase their knowledge in terms of education as well as the current happenings in the profession.

Throughout the last two years WIRC Office Bearers, contributing members and staff have laboured ceaselessly to ensure that our members and students feel secure in the knowledge that their Regional Council is doing everything to support their professional and career goals.

Representation to Charity Commissioner

As per Income Tax amendments, all Trusts have to re-register themselves under Sec. 12AB and revalidate the 80G Certificate. However, many trusts (especially old trusts) are finding it extremely difficult to locate the trust deed. WIRC requested Shri Pramod Tarare, Charity Commissioner of Maharashtra to issue instructions to all the offices under his jurisdiction to provide copy of trust deed to trusts on priority basis. We are thankful to him that within 18 hours of our request he issued the instructions to all the offices in his jurisdiction.

Telegram Channel

Today, social media has become the fastest form of communication. Keeping with the times, WIRC has launched its official channel ”WIRC Connect” through the Telegram App to instantly communicate with members across the Region. We invite all members to download the Telegram App and join “WIRC Connect” to receive regular updates, forthcoming programs as well as videos and professional information directly from WIRC. The link for joining the telegram channel after downloading the Telegram App is https://t.me/joinchat/-gNlB5ppMAo4NDA1

Launch of T-E-L

This unique initiative by WIRC to create a productive generation of students has been launched to great acclaim. Campus placement has commenced and students are looking forward to Train, Earn & Learn. This is open to students across the Region and any student who wants to be a contributing member should click on the link below and register for this programme.

WIRC will continue to organise high quality webinars, refresher courses and workshops. I request members to take advantage of these online benefits and make the most of it during this time.

During the course of the last year, we have realised that, “Sometimes we are tested, not to show our weakness but to discover our strengths.” Let us play to our strengths and build on them to continue to be the most elite finance professionals in the country.

I request you to share your ideas, vision and suggestions to chairmanwirc@icai.in.

As always, take care, stay safe and remain healthy.

Best Regards
Yours Sincerely,

CA. Manish Gadia
Chairman
