Friends, Company Secretary Profession in India has grown big, not because it has come across a multitude of decades, but because it has had a glorious eventful past that we can take pride on while reflecting on its curve of growth. The profession through its Code of Ethics has helped its followers in strictly adhering to the agenda of social responsibility, eventually bolstering the economy of our nation. On the same line, on 4th October, 2016, the whole fraternity of Company Secretaries had celebrated 48th CS Day. At NIRC we celebrated the CS Day by organizing Blood Donation Camp & plantation of sapling and panel discussion among Past Presidents of ICSI, followed by motivational talk for members of the Institute.
