CA Gulab Kedia
I am thankful to all of you for showing faith on me as president of esteemed “Income Tax Bar Association Raipur”. Our team had taken charge from the honorable Sanjay Bilthare Ji. It is matter of pleasure for me that I am succeeding the person who was my senior during my article-ship days & he always showered his love as elder brother.
We assure you, we will do our best for organization as well as members & manage the affairs of the association as per bye laws.
We have been facing various lock downs & restrictions due to COVID-19 pandemics for last 18 months. It was tough time for all of us, Swami Vivekanand Ji said “जितना कठिन संघर्ष होगा जीत उतनी ही शानदार होगी”. We should not loose our patience during tough time but should prepare. Tough time never lost but tough people do. Pandemics, Global warming, floods, droughts, tsunamis etc are often indicators of the erosion that has already taken place and are harbingers of the worse that may happen. For too long mankind has treated nature as a limitless source for its needs & indiscriminately extricating natural resources. In the process, what nature took millions of years to create is being used up and destroyed in a flip in the geological lifetime of the earth. The effect of the global climate change is significant on ecology with life threatening pollution, intense heat waves, shrinking glaciers, rising sea levels with severe impact on plant and animal life. It is responsibilities of all of us to save nature to avoid future pandemics. We should plant & care as many trees as we can.
Hon’ble past President of India Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan said “A life of Joy and happiness is possible only on the basis of knowledge & science” & I hope we all have enhanced our knowledge during COVID-19 pandemic.
We are facing glitches in income tax portal which is causing delay in our work as well as wastage of time of professionals. We had represented finance ministry & drawn their attention toward poor functioning of income tax portal & requested for extension of time limit of various forms & returns. We are happy to share that ministry had accepted our request & extended time limit above our expectations.
