Message from the Desk of Chairman



My Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

At the outset, please accept warm greetings on behalf of the Eastern India Regional Council (EIRC) of ICSI! It gives me immense pleasure in sharing my thoughts with you for the fourth time through this Communique in the capacity of Chairman of EIRC-ICSI.

I am happy to share that in these four months, me and my team amongst other aspects has been able to revive the spirit and culture of Study Circles and Group Discussions. We held several small discussions and study circles which provided the platform to delegates to raise, discuss and deliberate on several issues. I personally feel that these forums provide much greater leaning and sharing opportunity.

Needless to reiterate, that placement of members has been a priority for my council. We are not only in dialogue with several organizations for placement of our members but we have also conducted sessions to prepare and groom our young members for facing interviews. Under the guidance of Head Office, a Mega Campus Placement drive is scheduled on 26th and 27th of May 2017. 

We are planning to hold Regional Students Conference on 30th July 2017. We are also planning to hold the 13th Regional Conference of Practicing Company Secretaries on 26-27 August 2017. I request all my esteemed members to kindly block their calendar for the upcoming Regional PCS Conference in the month of August.

To address the requirement of obtaining PCH by our members within 31st March, we organized, in addition to the above, several study circle meetings and half day work shop on subjects such as Related Party Transactions, Secretarial Standards, Striking Off, Managerial Remuneration and CSR.

During the month of April, we organized a half day workshop on a very relevant topic “Voluntary Liquidation”. We also organized “Capacity Building Conclave” at Middleton Chambers in Kolkata. As the name suggests, the focus was on capacity building of our members in relevant fields such as NCLT, GST, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code and Secretarial Audit.

My Regional Council Colleagues and our respected Central Council Members have been supporting and guiding me in all my initiatives. Needless to mention the untiring and dedicated efforts of my EIRO colleagues provides strength to the Regional Council.

I once again 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-
