“India is all set to emerge as the third largest economy of the world with a quantum jump in its GDP by 2030. The role of the Chartered Accountants in this context is very crucial,” said Dr.Tapan Kumar Chand, CMD of Navratna NALCO. He was addressing the gathering of Chartered Accountants from across the country during the National CA Conference, organized by Professional Development Committee, ICAI in Bhubaneswar, on 3 rd August 2018. Dr. Chand cited Chartered Accountants are the architects of country’s financial system. “More competent this professional community becomes, stronger will be our financial system,” he added.
Dr Chand informed that, India is first emerging as the youngest Nation in the world with more than 65% of its population in the working group. If the demographic dividend is properly cultivated, then GDP growth in India will become double digit.
