Chairman Hyderabad ICAI
Dear Professional Colleagues and Students,
At the outset, I wish each one of you a Happy 74th Independence Day. I am also very happy to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Eid ul Adha, Raksha Bandhan, Janmashtami, Navroz, Ganesh Chaturthi & Onam.
Every year we used to celebrate the above festivals along with our loved ones and every festival had its unique importance. Keeping in view the present situation, all the festivals now have to be celebrated as a lowkey affair. I urge you to celebrate the festivals only with family members and step out of the house only when it is very important. Covid 19 cases are increasing and we see the figure crossing 50000 every day over the past few days.
On Independence day, the Managing Committee members, in the presence of Central Council member CA Dayaniwas Sharma Ji and few staff members of branch, hoisted the flag, and distributed Immunity kits to staff members and the needy. We missed you all every minute on 15th August.
The Branch had organised a Virtual CPE meeting on Formation and taxation of Private/Family Trust wherein CA Dr Girish Ahuja ji addressed us and the event was attended by more than 500 members.
On 14th August, Noted Tollywood Director & Actor Sri Tharun Bhascker, who got National award for his film “Pelli Choopulu”, answered the questions of members on Challenges faced by him in Film Industry. I am very happy to share with all of you that he credits his financial success to the advice of his Chartered Accountant and announced that a having a good Chartered Accountant is very much required for success of anyone.
The Branch conducted virtual meetings almost every day in July/August and I am happy to share that we had an average attendance of 300 plus in every meeting. I sincerely thank the members for their active participation in meetings and encouraging us to conduct more meetings.
The details of Programmes are given elsewhere in the Newsletter.
58th AGM of Hyderabad Branch of SIRC of ICAI was conducted on Zoom platform on Friday, 31st July 2020 at 10 AM. I am happy to share that 92 members attended the meeting.

Sometimes we are tested, not to show our weakness, but to discover our strengths.
