Dear Professional Colleagues, Greetings.

Hope everyone is doing great in their professional assignments. Winter has just arrived. There is large drop in temperature in some parts of the country. Stay safe and healthy.

We are still in hangover of the Dwarka National Tax Conference, Darshan of Lord Krishna that we all had enjoyed together. I must say that Dwarka had a special memory in the mind of each one who attended and had the privilege to visit Somnath Temple along with Blue Beach at Dwarka. We also had a very good one day conference on 15-10-22 at Ludhiana (Northern Zone).

I am honoured to share one important information that, we have been able to reach more than 7500 members of the Federation through WhatsApp on the eve of celebration of Foundation Day of AIFTP.

We are pleased to inform that on the occasion of the 46th Foundation Day, we have hoisted the A.I.F.T.P. Flag at Head office (Mumbai) on 11th November, 2022 in Morning in the presence of Past Presidents S/Shri P. C. Joshi, Dr. K. Shivaram, J. D. Nankani and Smt. Nikita Badheka, Zone Chairman Mr. Mitish Modi along with Office Bearers and committee Members of Western Zone. In the evening of 11th day of November Flag of AIFTP was hoisted at Chandigarh in the Presence of Our own Hon’ble Mr. Justice Rajesh Bindal, Chief Justice, Allahabad High Court wherein Past President Smt. Prem Lata Bansal was facilitated.

I am happy to share my feelings of happiness, thanks & gratitude to all my Past Presidents, NEC Members, Zone Chairmen, Vice Presidents, Joint Secretaries & all the Office Bearers of all Zones on the eve of 46th Foundation Day Celebrations Fortnight that all have come forward to celebrate 46th Foundation Day of AIFTP at maximum places throughout the country.

It gives me immense pleasure to inform you all that the Foundation Day is being celebrated all over the country and flag of the Federation was hoisted in over fifty places. This was indeed a special day when the entire AIFTP Family had a chance to reflect not only the beginnings of the Federation and its founders, but also on the significant development since the Federation’s inception. We had celebrated our history and revisited and reconnected with the continuing journey of the Federation. We celebrated the joy of learning as we developed in mind, body and spirit, and we celebrated the bond that we share with past and present members of the AIFTP Family. The day was the completion of 46 years of establishment of AIFTP. The seed of the Federation sowed in 1976 has culminated into a big banyan tree now. I am filled with gratitude when I look upon the tremendous hard work and dedication by all the past office bearers who ensured that while growing and spreading the wings of Federation to each and every part of India, the bond of fraternity remained strong and the Federation continued to achieve its noble goal of educating the members and the public at large.
