Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan launched by Hon’ble Prime Minster of India Shri Narendra Modi on 2nd October, 2014 not only aims at correcting the country's reputation for poor public hygiene and rudimentary sanitation but also promises a positive economic impact. It is a more of a privilege that the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is the first professional body in the country which has been nominated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister to take this Abhiyaan forward.
It has been desired by the Ministry of Power that the amount spent under such activity be verified suitably and services of chartered accountants be utilized for the purpose on Pro Bono basis.
All practicing chartered accountants are requested to communicate their interest for undertaking assignments on Pro Bono basis for verification of CSR Funds spends by the PSUs governed by the Ministry of Power as per guidelines/framework to be provided by Ministry.
Given our track-record as a partner in nation building, we all should contribute our individual as well as collective might to make this initiative a grand success.
This is an opportunity for all of us to associate and contribute in professional manner towards Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan. Let us make this Abhiyaan our Social Responsibility and commit ourselves to the Clean India pledge delivered by our Prime Minister.
