Kolkata: The Newly formed Eastern India Regional Council for the year 2023 – 24 of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India organised the Late S Vaidya Nath Aiyar Memorial Lecture on 24th February 2023. Keeping up with the tradition of the past, EIRC invited noted Economist Prof. (Dr.) Suman Kumar Mukherjee to speak on the subject “Balancing India’s Rapid Economic Growth with Sustainability.”

The topic selected is very much relevant as Economic growth, Social inclusion, and Environmental conservation are the three key components of long-term sustainable development. Harmonizing them is crucial towards the achievement of a Balanced growth of any country. Sustainable development requires long-term economic growth, a stable livelihood, living in harmony with nature, and the use of appropriate technology in pursuance with nature.
