Message from the Desk of Chairman


My Dear Esteemed Friends

Greetings from EIRC of ICSI!

It gives me immense pleasure to present the June-July 2016 issue of ICSI-EIRC newsletter which brings the latest news & highlights of the activities of ICSI-EIRC.

In the beginning of June 2016, I had the privilege with other council members to meet with H.E. Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi ji, Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal, where we apprised him about the role of Company Secretaries in Corporates and their efforts to implement good Corporate Governance practices by complying the various rules and regulations. The Governor appreciated the Institute’s efforts and encouraged the Institute to continue with the professional development programmes for members, students and corporates.

In a bid to encourage the budding Practising Company Secretaries (PCS) for their initial Start Up and Stand Up ventures, President, ICSI, CS Mamta Binani inaugurated the  first -of its- kind CS Acceleration Centre (CSAC) within the Institute of Company Secretaries of India premises at ICSI EIRC Building, Kolkata on 11th June. We also celebrated   ‘PCS Day’ on 15th June to commemorate the historic   day in 1988 when  the Company Secretaries in Practice were accorded recognition for Certifying the Annual Returns under the erstwhile Companies Act, 1956. We also celebrated International Yoga Day on 21st June to imbibe in our students and members the benefits of exercise and healthy living.

We are also updating our EIRC portal in the ICSI website on an regular basis by updating latest announcement regarding seminars, workshop, EDP, MSOP and other student related Academic Programme, Member Professional Development Programmes at the link We have endevoured significantly to conduct MSOP programmes for the students on a regular basis and have recently concluded 110th MSOP where we had been incredibly proactive in bringing up quality speakers so as to enrich the knowledge level of the students. Our efforts which we hope have helped and benefitted the students. The ICSI Convocation Eastern Region was held on 11th June at Kalamandir where around 260 new members got their certificates of membership

The professional world has witnessed dynamic changes in recent times and global integration has helped a lot in creating flexible opportunities & opening up avenues of growth for professionals. A set of core areas like GST, NCLT, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code are on the avenue where we professionals can exercise our ability to offer services across boundaries. I earnestly call upon all the members to roll their sleeves and get set to dive into the vast opportunities for professionals.

This edition of the newsletter also brings a number of articles on emerging topics contributed by the reputed professionals in our professional community. This issue also includes the activities done by EIRC during this month. I would again ask for your participation in CSBF fund of the Institute and also your help in hiring our young Executive/Final passed students as Management Trainees and Fresh Members in your good offices. The institute looks for greater visibility for the course and profession and this is only possible with your volunteer help in organising and conducting career awareness programs in schools/colleges where you have studied or in the area where you reside. The details with regard to MT/Career Awareness are given in the website.

Hearing back from you is very encouraging, and we have incorporated some of the suggestions made. We would like to receive your feedback and views and hope you enjoy reading this issue of the newsletter.

Hence, I request members and students to reach out to me in building a better Institution. My coordinates are provided below-
