Message from the Desk of Chairman



My Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

At the outset, please accept warm greetings and wishes of the New Year on behalf of the Eastern India Regional Council (EIRC) of ICSI!

I place my heartfelt thanks to you for electing me to the Regional Council and it gives me immense pleasure in sharing my thoughts with you in the capacity of Chairman of EIRC-ICSI for the first time. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to my Regional Council colleagues for having reposed their faith in me and electing me unanimously as Chairman for the year 2017. I assure you that the Regional Council as a team will make all efforts to take our Institute and Profession to the next level.

Members: The ever evolving regulatory landscape has provided ample opportunity to all of us, be it commencement of proceedings at NCLT or that of The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016. To excel in these newer areas, we will focus on capacity building of our members and students by organizing programs of relevance. Our focus on organizing programs will be more on value addition. New Annual Membership Scheme (AMS-2017) will be announced shortly to encourage our members to participate in Institute’s activities in a hassle-free and affordable manner.

Young Members & Students: Budding Company Secretaries or students of ICSI require lateral and holistic training in terms of soft skills and also technical knowledge in subjects other than Corporate Laws. We will endeavor to undertake lateral and holistic training and orientation programs for grooming of our young members and students. We will further promote and propagate CS Acceleration Centre started last year to support our young members.

Chapters: We will also work with Chapters within the jurisdiction of EIRC and extend our full support and cooperation for their development.

Visibility & Recognition: Liaison with Government, Bureaucracy, Regulators and Corporates will be a priority to garner more visibility and recognition for our profession.

Study Centres and Study Circles: We are sure that the concept of Study Centres and Study Circles will usher a new era for expansion of ICSI’s reach to untapped areas. 

We feel blessed that CS Mamta Binani (Immediate Past President – ICSI) and CS S K Agrawala, our respected Central Council Members have been guiding the Regional Council all along. I also have a very able team of Office Bearers and Council Colleagues to support me in my endeavours. Needless to mention the untiring and dedicated efforts of my EIRO colleagues ably led by Mr. DVNS Sarma provides strength to the Regional Council.

I acknowledge the efforts put in by our Past Presidents, Past Chairmen and Council Colleagues in building this Institution of Excellence. We as a team will endeavor to take the legacy forward.

I request my fellow members and students to reach out to me with their thoughts at my coordinates provided below-
