Respected Seniors, my Professional Colleagues and Student Friends

I am truly honoured to have been entrusted with the responsibility of chairing Nashik Branch of WIRC of ICAI for the year 2015-16. I am obliged to you, all the Members at large, and especially to my Managing Committee colleagues, who have shown their trust and confidence in me. It is a moment of immense pride for me to lead this prestigious, vibrant and active team of Members and Students.

Well, as I take up the baton, it’s already the time for celebration and we have more than a few reasons! Team Nashik have recently bagged various awards at National Level (A First for Nashik Branch) and at WIRC Level.

  • For the first time in the history of Nashik Branch, we have received national accolades! We have received “HIGHLY COMMENDABLE WICASA BRANCH” at National Level and we can’t thank enough the pioneering and continuous efforts of the outgoing WICASA Chairman, CA Sarang Dhoke! He hassled from the front and taken Nashik WICASA to such stupendous heights at National Level. Thanks to Team WICASA, and especially CA Sohil Shah and CA Harshal Surana who have contributed in a big way in all the activities of WICASA throughout the year.

  • “HIGHLY COMMENDABLE WIRC BRANCH”- Our branch has scored a hat-trick, as we have bagged this award for 3rd time in row! Many congratulations to the outgoing Branch Chairman, CA Vikrant Kulkarni, for leading the branch to achieve this astounding feat.
  • “BEST WICASA BRANCH OF WIRC” –Kudos again to CA Sarang Dhoke and WICASA team for their outstanding achievement and efforts in WICASA activities!

I congratulate all of you, the Members and Students of Nashik, as these awards wouldn’t have been possible without your zeal and active participation. Thanks for making our branch a vibrant hub of knowledge transfer, professional discussions and social activity. I promise, in the weeks to come, we shall continue to work towards reaching and engaging more members and students.

It’s an absolute honour for me to lead our branch at its peak and also to get an opportunity to give back to the profession which has given me my identity in society.

As we have just witnessed the Union Budget for 2015-16, the Government is trying its best to get the economy back on the high-growth trajectory while controlling fiscal deficit and working within the inherent limitations of resources. We as a CA fraternity are always looked up to for giving professional solutions by public at large and also as a facilitator of Government in implementation of taxation legislature. I wish all the best to all our professional colleagues in carrying out these duties to the best.

On the Seminars & Workshops front, we have an active month ahead of us in which we shall have the Budget Seminar wherein eminent faculties will be giving us crucial insights relating to changes & amendments in Indirect Tax and well as Direct Tax provisions. We shall also host a Seminar on Bank Branch Audits.

I appeal to you all, the members and students, to keep contributing ideas and thoughts towards activities of the branch. And with this level of participation, I am certain that we shall retain and even surpass our leadership position!

With best Regards,

Yours Sincerely,

CA Anand Zawar
