Uttam Prakash Agarwal - Videos


































Rather than working on any new vision statement, let us work on three-year agenda



Institute is wrongly seen as an association, rather than as a statutory body that is a regulator of professionals



In terms of resources of our members, ICAI is in a strong position

Are chartered accountants contesting in the forthcoming elections

On CA entering politics

Arresting chartered accountant without any evidence can set a dangerous precedent

Has the Institute taken up the Satyam auditor issue with the Government



Because of coaching classes, CA students are not taking articleship seriously, so exam pattern will be made practice-oriented

We will be taking action against dummy articleship, including cancellation of registration of principal and student

I cannot make everybody happy, especially the interested people who oppose new initiatives

Institute has been setting up computer labs across the country, building centres of excellence, and thus focusing on infrastructure

Reason for including Gopalakrishnan in the new Committees of the ICAI



Can ICAI Council meetings become more transparent

When contesting for elections, I placed before members an 'account' of issues I raised in meetings

There should be a reporting format for monitoring the performance of Government-nominated members

Today corporate governance is only on paper

Is IFRS convergence still on the radar of ICAI

On the resistance to ICAI's standards, as in the case of AS-30 and AS-11, from CII

What are the additional powers Institute seeks, in the case of qualified audit reports



ICAI can highlight the notes and qualifications made by auditors

Indian CAs require recognition, so ICAI will showcase good work by members in the form of value addition

Knowledge portal to capture content from seminars, conferences, study circles

Updated information for members to check against, before making decisions

CAs are working in many roles, and the newer opportunities are identified and popularised, as in the case of forensic audit or conversion from single to double entry

Is there a poor density of CAs in any regions of the country

Do chartered accountants come back to the Institute complaining about lack of work

Chartered accountants have helped tax department to increase the revenue collections

There is no expectation gap

Diamond Jubilee initiatives with a social bias, for example agriculture

What we want to do as research in the area of fertiliser subsidies

Who should ask for the accountability of funds spent for various schemes and projects



Remembering my teacher…

Is there something that CAs can do in the area of education

ICAI vs IRS cricket match to be telecast on DD-Sports

Yoga programme in Haridwar that removed stress for members

Do Council members get additional professional opportunities using their position in the Institute

On the AS-11 amendment

Is language a barrier in CA education

Are CA employees recognised in the CA Institute, yes

Accounting Technician course is eliciting very good response, including from students who have completed articleship

International agenda before the ICAI

Indian CAs have inherent strengths
