Happy New Year 2019
I wish a very Happy, Healthy and Happening New Year 2019 to all my brothers and sisters of AIFTP.
I would like to convey my thanks to the members of collegium for reposing confidence in me and allowing me an opportunity to serve the fraternity.
It is my last communication to you as President of the organisation, the work done by team 2018 is before you. We have striven hard to achieve the object of reforming the systems and administrative methods of our office at Mumbai.
The digitalisation of the AIFTP is achieved by the hard work put in by our Secretary General Shri Pankaj Ghiya. We have also successfully made several representations to Government through our Direct and Indirect Tax Representation Committee that yielded dividends.
We have also filed two Writ Petitions one before Hon’ble Delhi High Court against the direction of CBDT to appellate authorities and second before Hon’ble Bombay High Court for appointment of Registrar and Assistant Registrars of ITAT. I trust we have worked to obtain good results and communication facility for our members at large.
I express my thanks to the entire executive body i.e., Vice Presidents, Chairmen of all the zones and members of NEC, Chairmen and Members of various committees who have discharged their assignments sincerely and for extending their full co-operation in functioning the organisation.
I am happy that Dr. Ashok Saraf Saheb the new incoming incumbent of the office will certainly achieve new heights and bring glory to our organisation.
The organisations are built brick-by-brick by the effort of several persons, the focus should be on the object to be achieved. Individuals will come and go but the organisation will remain. It is the bounden duty of the leaders of the organisation to bring glory by strengthening it through involvement of larger membership and active participation of the fraternity.
I request all my brothers and sisters to inculcate the comradeship among all the members and should be willing to work collaboratively for betterment and development of the fraternity.
We have a strong team of experts to resolve the issues faced by the members, but it is possible only when the members are active and vigilant to contribute by their participation and suggestions for the betterment of our association.
A big thank you to one and all for helping for the term 2018.
