Dear Professional Members,
About the KSCAA Sumit 2013- @ Hubli conference:
For the first time KSCAA organized two days conference in large scale outside Bangalore in a five star hotel and I am happy to note that due to overwhelming response from all over Karnataka, we were forced to stop registration. The response from the members across the state for this SUMMIT was encouraging and supportive.
KSCAA Summit – 2013 was inaugurated by MLC and Ex- minister Honorable Mr. Basavaraj Horatti. While addressing the delegates after the inauguration Mr. Horatti mentioned that, ‘IAS Officials dominate decision making if ministers are indecisive’. He also added that IAS officers run the government, and not the ministers. The IAS officers interpret the rules, regulations and laws in their way, and they dominate the decision making process if the ministers lack knowledge and the vision required. He revealed that he came to know about this only when he became a minister. He also highlighted the importance of having associations for all types of professionals, to fight for their rights and to improve the standard of their services. Mr Horatti assured the members that he will try his best to resolve the problems faced by Chartered Accountants.
After the conference, I met the Co-operative minister along with Mr. Horatti, CA Madusudan Pise Chairman Hubli Branch, CA N A Charantimath, Past Chairman Hubli Branch, CA Gajanan NeelakariPast Chariman Hubli Branch and other dignitaries. The Minister assured to have a special one-to-one meeting with us at Bangalore
ICAI Central Council member CA Devaraja Reddy called upon the chartered accountants to regularly update their knowledge to be serious about their profession and to have specialization. A chartered accountant is a leader in the society and he should set a good example. They should also have professional social responsibility. For strengthening this profession, steps like more peer reviewing have been taken, he added.
Dignitaries across the Karantaka state from the professional fraternity all the way came to Hubli to participate in this Mega KSCAA- Sumit 2013.
