Dear Professional Colleagues,

It is indeed a great pleasure and honour to take over the baton of Chairpersonship of Pune Branch of WIRC of ICAI for the year 2024-25.

It is undoubtedly a great privilege to be blessed with a unique opportunity to serve Pune Branch of ICAI in the “Amrit Mahotsav” year – 75th Year of our alma mater – ICAI, in the “Amritkaal” of Bharat!!

I am conscious of the great responsibility that this position brings along and shall strive to work with dedication, determination and passion.

I wish to express my sincere thanks to all the members for all the support extended and electing me to the Managing Committee twice with highest first preference votes. I also extend my sincere thanks to my Managing Committee colleagues for reposing the confidence in me and electing me as Chairperson and giving me an opportunity to serve this esteemed office.

The legacy of my distinguished predecessors for their insightful actions and selfless contributions has made Pune Branch a “Model” branch!

With a strong belief on “Perseverance” and applying “Kaizen Theory”, we will work for the betterment of Pune Branch of ICAI with the following “Ideas” –

  • Sustainable Development Goals – We will raise awareness on ESG concerns and focus to strengthen the sustainable ecosystem.
    • We have unanimously decided to avoid the use of plastic water bottles and flex/banners as one step towards our responsibility in achieving sustainable ecosystem.
  • Technovation – Workshops and courses to upgrade and upskill the members in practice to effectively manage the practice as the profession transits from ticks to clicks!
  • Branch at your doorstep – Interactive meets and help-desks to address the issues faced by the members in the industry, trainees and senior members in the fraternity.
  • She-preneurship – Encourage and support women members by facilitating a platform for deliberations. Organize special workshops for women members resuming their career post sabbatical.

All this will need a collective pursuit for collective improvement. It will not be possible without YOU… because, it’s not ME, But, WE! Yes, together, WE CAN make a difference and create an impact!

I pray to Almighty to give us enough abilities, strength and patience to work hard and live upto the expectations of the members, students and all the stakeholders.
