Narayan Jain, Advocate

Respected Members & Friends,

At the outset I wish you and your family heartfelt greetings for the year 2024 and hope that this will be a year of hope, optimism, joy, and affection as well as fulfilling desires in your life.

I convey my thanks and gratitude to all the Members for electing me as the National President for the year 2024. The New team has taken charge from 1st January, 2024 and various activities will be rolling out by different Zones. East Zone is organising a National Tax Conference at Balasore on 27th and 28th January 2024 organised in association with All Odisha Tax Advocates Association (AOTAA) and Balasore Tax Bar Association at Padmabati Amusement Water Park, Missile City, Balasore. A one day Tax Conference is being organised by Bhubaneswar Tax Bar Association with AIFTP, East Zone on 25th February, 2024 at Hotel Empire, Saheed Nagar, Bhubaneswar. The credit for programmes in Odisha goes to Mr. Bibekananda Mohanti, Chairman EZ, Mr. Uttam Kumar Behera, Mr. Jagadish Prasad Khandelwal, Mr. Surya Kantakar, Mr. Ramesh Dhal, Mr. Pradosh Pattnaik, Mr. RN Pal and entire team at both the places for their sincere efforts. I understand from Adv. Sandeep Goyal Chairman, North Zone that a National Tax Conference is going to be organised in Gurgaon tentatively on 6th and 7th April, 2024. Central Zone Chairman Adv. Vijay Navlakha is also going to organise an NTC at Ujjain. Details are being worked out and will be circulated.

The Interim budget of Government of India is going to be announced on 1st February, 2024 and we may discuss salient features on virtual platform 2nd Feb., 2024.

We have been working on connecting the Members of AIFTP to the global world. Accordingly, AIFTP launched last year “AIFTP Global Connect” under the able leadership of Adv. Pankaj Ghiya. It is a search facility on the website of the AIFTP wherein any person can search the presence of AIFTP Member in any city and can connect with him/ her for the professional work etc. Members are requested to verify their data and correct the same on the website of the AIFTP, if not yet done.

It will be our endeavour to work for the well being of tax fraternity and to spread the knowledge.

Let us follow the AIFTP motto of Ethics, Education and Excellence in its true spirit.

With best Regards,

Narayan Jain

National President, 2024
