CA. Atul Kumar Gupta, President, ICAI on the occasion said“ The students should focus on Skill Building with specialization in one area to achieve success in their life, irrespective of the fact whether they belong to small towns, villages or the metro cities. There are equal opportunities for all of them and they can certainly attain the pinnacle of success in their lives if they have the right attitude in life, as it is rightly said that, “To reach a greater altitude in life, right attitude is important rather than aptitude”.
President, ICAI further added that “ Industrial exposure is very much important for a student to move ahead in his / her dream of becoming a CEO from CFO of a company. Today, the industries need an all-round personality which is in true sense can become the business solution provider.”
