Considering the continued threat of the pandemic and as a responsible association, Vidarbha Taxpayers Association (VTA) conducted its 9th Annual General Meeting (AGM) online on Zoom.
Welcoming the members, the president of the VTA, Shrawankumar Malu in his presidential address said, GST collection raised to Rs. 1.05 lakh crore in October 2020 crossing 1 lakh crore mark for the first time since February this year. This clearly indicates that the Indian economy is well on its road to recovery after the national lockdown imposed to contain the Covid-19 pandemic forced the economy to come to a standstill in the first quarter of the new fiscal year. During this pandemic we realised that Healthcare is the epicentre and lack of medical investment and healthcare infrastructure are the biggest challenge for an effective response in India in a battle against the novel pandemic. Indian travel and tourism industry is one of the worst-impacted sectors by the corona virus pandemic. Soon we expect vaccines, so during that time we all should take precautionary measures to keep ourselves and family safe and healthy.
Tejinder Singh Renu, secretary VTA conducted the proceedings of the AGM. Minutes of previous AGM were read. Audited accounts for the year 2019-20 were adopted and passed by the members. VTA thanked CA Akhil Darda for his time to time services.
