Ethics, The Assessee & The Law
Hon’ble Shri. R. V. Easwar, President
The Hon’ble President of the Tribunal speaks with candour on the sensitive topic of ethics with regard to the tax payer, his advisers as well as the judiciary. While he cautions assessees and tax professionals to beware of the "demon of greed", he strongly advises the Members of the Tribunal to "scrupulously avoid misdemeanor or deviant behaviour". Ethical Behaviour should never be compromised emphasizes the Learned Judge
Respected Shri Ashvin Shah, the Chairman of the Convention, Members of the All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants and the West Zone of the All India Federation of Tax Practitioners, other dignitaries present, Members of the Bar and the Accountancy profession, ladies and gentlemen:
I consider it a privilege to be invited as the guest of honour for the valedictory session of the National Convention on Taxation – 2011 organised jointly by the All Gujarat Federation of Tax Consultants and the West Zone of the All India Federation of Tax Practitioners. It is nice to be back in Ahmedabad, though for a short period. I like the city for its warmth and hospitality and for the vibrant and good-natured people. During my brief stay here for about 9 months, we felt at home. The city is one of the few cities in India which still retain the old-world charm and welcome everyone cheerfully.
