Dear Professional Colleagues,

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ? Edith Sitwell

On 5th November, Vasai Branch completed 13 years of journey. Thanks for your support & cooperation. Shri. Ravi Vyas (Standing Committee Chairman, & Corporator, MBMC) graced the occasion of Conference on GST and joined in the event of the Celebration of Branch Annual Day.

As you are aware, the triennial election to 24th Council and 23rd Regional Councils of ICAI will be held on 7th-8th December 2018 at the places having more than 2,500 voters and only on 8th December 2018 at all other places. I would request all my professional colleagues to come out in large numbers and exercise their right to vote and elect the right candidate. Let us all observe the Election Code of Conduct in letter and spirit so that free and fair elections could be conducted.

Branch had conducted Two Days Conference on GST under the guidance of Indirect Taxes Committee, ICAI. Glimpses of Speakers enlighten the knowledge of different area of GST Audit Report & Annual Return to more than 300 participants.

In November this year, we have Deepawali and the birthdays of Prophet Mohammed (Id-e-Milad) and Guru Nanak, which fall on 7th, 21st and 23rd November respectively. We also have Govardhan Puja, Bhai Duj, Chhath Puja (Surya Shashthi) and Guru Teg Bahadur’s martyrdom day falling on 8th, 9th, 13th and 24th November respectively. We have to carry forward the message and mission of togetherness, love and peace that our festivals essentially emanate. Let us create a better world around us. 

Before winding up this message, I would like to wish all the best to all of you who write the Foundation/Intermediate/Final Examinations.

Thanks & Warms Regards
