Awareness campaign for Chartered Accountants
Today, India is one of the most exciting emerging markets in the world and Chartered Accountants play a major role in setting up and running businesses in India. The Government of India nominates 8 members to represent the comptroller and Auditor General of India, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Ministry of Finance and other stakeholders. Chartered Accountants who are technically equipped to act as management consultants, gathered for a convention at the Regional Training Institute, Chennai on 4th Feburary 2010. Executive Director of our organization Mr. Bhanu Kumar was invited to address the audience for an hour. Mr. Bhanu who is also an RTI coordinator, gave a detailed account of the functioning of 5thPillar and its role in fighting corruption, through various methods. Taking a stand against the beauraucrats by filing an RTI petition, participation of youths in the movement are the highlights of the organization, said Mr. Bhanu. The session was very interactive when there were interesting queries about the field activities, and action plan of the organization. Reaching out to the economists was of great relevance to our current mission.
