Hi,

 

Thanks for comment.

 

Can’t reject your observation. In fact it is true. The main reason is presently  I have nothing to post here like file and notes etc.

 

Many of my student related files and notes are in process from a long time…but the main problem with me is lack of time along with motivation and concentration. Almost 6-8 articles are pending completion from my side and I have a very strict policy not to pick anything from here and there.

 

But am trying to share my real time suggestions as and when required by members. I’ll try my best to complete the pending stuff as early as possible and share with you all.

 

Best Regards

Now i want to know which are the compliance i need to fulfill? Am I required to file any E-form online for this? (just for Auditors appointment / for EGM?)
