"Our industrious CA community has a major role to play in ensuring a healthy and transparent economy. Their services to the nation are deeply valued. Greetings on Chartered Accountants Day," the Prime Minister tweeted.
The Prime Minister also posted a short video hailing the work done by CAs and said, " Worldwide, Indian CAs are recognised for their better understanding and exemplary financial skills. In our sacred scriptures, four things have been mentioned religion (Dharma), economy (Arth), work (kaam) and salvation (moksh). Out of these, the responsibility on the society's economic health lies with CAs."
