Message from the Desk of Chairman


A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.  – Tom Stoppard

Dear Professional Colleagues,

Our words and thoughts shape our actions and our life is the resultant of our actions. It is rightly said that life is only 10% of what has happened to us but 90% of what and how we have perceived and reacted to that situation. A person’s mind is so powerful; it can invent, create, experience and destroy things with our thoughts alone. If you realize how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. So it’s important to keep a healthy attitude which will result in healthier and sanguine actions.

Workshops / Seminars / Programmes are not only the opportunity for capacity building but it also infuse knowledge and connect with the fraternity and I believe these have a definite impact on our thoughts too. I take this opportunity to inform you that EIRC has announced SPECIAL AMS and provided a golden opportunity for the Individual Members to make themselves eligible to attend the programmes organised by EIRC by registering themselves for this Special AMS that too at a very special price.

In the last month of May, the mega programme on “Insight into IBC updates and Companies (Amendment) Act 2017” was held on 12th May at The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata whereas a Half Day Workshop on “Companies (Amendment) Act 2017 and Recent Amendments in SEBI(LODR) Regulations” was organised on 26th May.

On 18th May in an interactive meeting, Shri K G Joseph Jackson, Registrar of Companies (WB) elucidated about various initiatives taken by MCA to support and promote the Ease of Doing Business in India.

As you all are aware that the 14th edition of the Regional PCS Conference of EIRC is scheduled to be held on Saturday, 16th June, 2018 at JW Marriott, Kolkata, CS Siddhartha Murarka, Chairman of PCS Committee is taking all efforts to make it the most worthy event of knowledge and networking. I request for your active participation as a delegate and a patron, both.

As it is the turn of Eastern Region to host the National Convention, I am pleased to inform you that EIRC has proposed to organize it at a New Location i.e. Bhubaneswar. The proposal regarding same has already been forwarded to the HO and we believe that the Bhubaneswar Chapter, National Best Chapter Award winner, will certainly rise to the occasion to host the grand gala event in a spectacular way. The official intimation regarding this will be shared by HO soon.

The new batches of OTC (Oral Tuition Classes) have already started and we have introduced a competitive fee with some added benefits for the students. Officials from EIRO and Siliguri Chapter participated at SAPE Education Fairs held at Netaji Indoor Stadium, Kolkata and City Garden, Siliguri respectively.

I once again take this opportunity to acknowledge the constant support and guidance from my colleagues in Regional Council, Central Council Members and all my Predecessors at EIRC, in all my initiatives. I also acknowledge the efforts of EIRO officials under the leadership of Shri DVNS Sarma in giving their best to implement these initiatives.

Remember! all that we are today is the result of what we had thought yesterday. So think good! think positive!

Please feel free to share your views and suggestion to me. My coordinates are given below.

With warm regards,
CS Ashok Purohit 
Chairman, EIRC of ICSI
