Chairman Message April 2018

Respected Members of
Udaipur Branch of CIRC of ICAI

I feel extremely privileged to assume office of chairman of Udaipur Branch of CIRC of ICAI for the year 2018-19. It is a great honour for me to be blessed with this unique opportunity. I extend my sincere thanks to all my colleagues for electing me the chairman of the branch and extend my heartiest gratefulness to the founding fathers of our profession, and my predecessors as well.

I also give my sincere thanks, through this page, being my first message as chairman, to all my professional friends and well-wishers of Udaipur branch and assure that I will continue to strive for your support and cooperation for the growth and development of our profession and institute.

Member Benefit tie-ups for FY 2018-19

With my eye on providing benefit to members alongside branch activities, I have formed a sub-committee under the leadership of my executive colleague CA. Anshul Mogra to negotiate discount on medical bills. Other members of the committee are CA. Rohan Mittal, CA. Adab babel & CA. Akshay Jain. As a result of hard work of this committee, tie-up have been done in first phase with various hospitals, medical stores and diagnosis centers for providing discounts on bills of their services during FY 2018-19. Though we pray that all the members of our Branch and their families remain healthy and wealthy, yet we cannot deny the possibility of any medical emergency, which is against our will. I hope this small step of branch will help members to some extent. This committee has a strong vision to put before members many more discount tie-ups on book stores, retail outlets, restaurants, and hotels etc. in the second phase. My sincere gratitude towards CA. Rohan Mittal, CA. Adab Babel and CA. Akshay Jain for their dedicated efforts to design these valuable tie-ups. I will remain indebted to all our CA members who supported us directly or indirectly for various tie-ups. (Complete list of tie-ups is attached with this letter. Members are requested to show their ID card at vendors place to avail discount benefits). Click Here

E-library for members

New era of technology is digitization. Therefore a library committee, headed by CA. Vishal Menaria, has decided to take e-subscription for books of various publishers during this year. In the first phase, members will be able to avail this facility at branch premises. In second phase, we are planning to send this e-library at your office table from branch.

CPE and other activities along with PQ Course

CPE is the backbone of our profession, so we have planned enough CPE activities as also post qualification courses round the year along with other social activities which will be informed timely

Student Activities

Students are the future and new hope of our Noble profession. This year we have planned to organise many events and activities for their professional development under the chairmanship of CA. Dilip Kothari. As a matter of fact, strength of students has reduced in branch activities in last two years therefore it is my humble request to all the principal/members to motivate your articles for maximum participation in student activities in this year. Before I lay my pen let me take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to all of you that this financial year 2018-19 be full of new hopes, new opportunities and good health.

With Warm regards

CA. Pankaj Jain
