Ethics are a way of life. Today, the Federation is considered a national integration of tax professionals of India. We have many eminent professionals as our members, some have been elevated to be Judges of the High Courts, Supreme Court and Tribunals. We have great potential and ability to grow as a global association. The Federation is making an honest attempt to develop a strong Tax Bar for our country, which will be able to compete in International Tax Practice.

Amongst those who held the office of President were Shri G. Palkhivala who had the longest tenure from the year till his demise in Thereafter Shri Y. Trivedi, Sr. Advocate served as a President up to December, , Shri S. Dastur, Sr.

The President extends her warm greetings and felicitations to the organisers and the participants and wishes the event every success. Vice President of India extends his greetings and good wishes to the organizers and the participants and wishes the National Tax Moot Court Competition all success.

Ashok Dewan New Delhi 6th September, 13 Justice Vijay Daga September 12, To become a good advocate you need yourself equipped with the good presentation skills. To improve your skills practice is required in presenting your case and arguing which is a big challenge for a developing student at the college level. A student of law cannot just stick only to the theoretical teaching and hence law institutions host Moot Court Competitions.

With Moot Court on your resume, an employer knows that you have been learning to form and communicate legal arguments for a year or more; if youve already spent a lot of time in law school on these tasks, thats less time the firm will have to invest in your learning and more time you can spend practicing law. Even if youre not thinking ofajob at a large firm, Moot Court can be quite useful as youll become increasingly more comfortable formulating arguments and expressing them in front of judges.

If you feel that your public speaking skills need some work, Moot Court is a great place to hone them. On a more personal level, participating in Moot Court can also provide a unique bonding experience for you and your team and give you a mini-support system during law school. I am sure, as always, the 7th Nani A. Such moot courts are necessary to encourage the aspiring lawyers to showcase and hone their talents so that they are fully prepared when they enter the legal profession.

It is a step in the right direction and congratulations are due to the Government Law College, Mumbai, a premier educational institution for the study of Law, the All India Federation of Tax Practitioners and the Income Tax, Appellate Tribunal Bar Association, Mumbai for taking interest in such events in the larger interests of the legal profession in lndia.

I wish all the participants all the best. May the best team win. Moot Courts provide an excellent opportunity to law students who are aspiring to excel themselves in the taxation branch as lawyers. Such training would enrich the tax bar associations in future, in the form of having young and talented graduates into its stream.

It is noticed that the Moot Court competitions are held in a very organised manner, by maintaining high standards, which would surely benefit the participants. I wish them all the very best. Without doubt, Mr. Palkhivala is the best role model for a young mooter and an aspiring lawyer. I had the great fortune and the proud privilege of being associated as a junior to Mr.

Palkhivala for a long period extending over three decades. However, the family relations dated back to the early nineteen forties when he and my father studied law in our own Government Law College at the same time. For Mr.

Palkhivala, tax law was the main turf and the pitch where he played the game of his life. It was not only his passion but also his bread and butter. It was tax law with which he made his beginning and his big name. Next to his home and office the maximum time of his life was spent in the courtrooms and corridors of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal in Mumbai.

It is for his contribution to the growth and development of tax laws that he will be remembered the most in India. In short, tax law was his Karma Bhoomi. For the benefit of young mooters let me recall that extensive reading and ever-expanding knowledge are the prerequisites of a successful lawyer and Mr. Palkhivala implemented this principle in its totality. He extensively read not only law and constitutional law, but also several other laws on a regular basis.

He mastered the fundamental laws such as 17 jurisprudence and interpretation of statutes. He once advised me that tax cases are better won with not-tax legal material and not just with tax material and I have followed this advice with significant benefit in my practice. Palkhivala never studied a statutory enactment in isolation on a stand alone basis but as a part of a broad legal network and this brought out much wider and deeper meaning and understanding of that particular enactment.

A substantial part of his library and books which he gifted me over past few years included law books from virtually every branch of law.

The wide range of his law books display the width of his mental horizon and the depth of his brilliant mind. This is what a young lawyer should try to emulate. Many precious lessons could be learnt from Mr. Palkhivalas legal career. In all his legal battles, Mr.

Palkhivala had a clear and consistent strategy. He would deeply analyse the facts, compartmentalize the legal issues and on that basis would formulate the proposition that he wanted the Court to accept. This intellectual ability with gifted and persuasive advocacy worked as magic and did wonders year after year; whether it be the Supreme Court or the High Courts or Tribunals all over India.

His advocacy was extremely convincing, based on respect for the Court and devoid of any arrogance and more importantly, administered firmly but with humility.

Many times in the Courts, during the replies of the other side, he would give me precious hints on Court craft and conduct, chief among them being never to offend the Judges and lose temper in the Courts. I am sure that every young lawyer will benefit immensely and reach great legal heights if he follows in the footsteps of Mr. I wish a great success for Nani A. September 29, 18 September 18, AIFTP has been very active since decades in organizing tax seminars, workshops and other programmes of continuing education for tax practitioners and in creating awareness among the tax payers of their rights and obligations.

In the globalised economy and cross-border commercial transactions, international taxation a relatively less familiar subject, has assumed enormous dimensions and great relevance. Therefore, the topic selected Cross-border Business Reorganisation - The Indian Perspective for the competition is of wide importance where the students will gain the experience by presenting papers with special reference to the proposed Direct Tax Code. There is more and more interaction between professionals across the political borders and these interactions give all of us opportunities to learn from each other and share each others perspectives on problems.

Action without vision is simply passing time. Action with vision is making a positive difference. I am sure that the presentation of research papers and discussion with the participation of the different Law Colleges students and the experts of the topic, will certainly clear many lingering doubts and open up new vistas of thought and action.

I am sure that it would be a good experience to the participants and they would be benefited with the experts comments too. I send my good wishes for the success of the National Moot Court Competition and hope it will contribute to more and more co-operation between the Law students and senior professionals across the world.

However, as we had our National Tax Conference in Chennai, we could not hold the Moot Court Competition in Mumbai on the same day, therefore, we thought of writing this message. In his speech the Prime Minister stated as under:In those dark days, the battle for democracy was fought by many people in many different ways.

Many of us in politics under the leadership of Jayaprakash Narayanan fought it in prisons. But I have no doubt that one of the finest battles was fought in the court rooms and that fighter was Nani Palkhivala. This great contribution of Shri Palkhivala for preserving the basic structure of the Constitution of India will be remembered for ever.

We as citizens of our country are always indebted to Shri Palkhivala. This inspired us to hold the Palkhivala Memorial National Tax Moot Court Competition through which we can spread awareness among law students about the contribution of Shri Palkhivala to the development of our country.

Rao and Prof. In my first message, I had stated that by organizing the National Tax Moot Court we intended to achieve twin objects; firstly we will be remembering one of the greatest lawyer of our country for his contribution to the development of law and preserving the sanctity of our Constitution and secondly, we are bringing awareness 20 amongst the law students about the values and ethics practiced by Shri N.

Palkhivala which will help to develop the Tax Bar of International Standards. Thereafter, successive Presidents of the Federation, Shri V. We have tried to improve the competition year after year. We have been informed by the students that this is one of the most prestigious Moot Court Competitions in the country, wherein students representing all the leading law colleges desire to participate.

It gives immense satisfaction to all of us who are associated with this educational programme to hear from students that this competition has generated interest amongst law students to study tax law. We are pleased to state that the Nani Palkhivala Memorial Tax Research Paper which was started in the year , is getting a very good response year after year. This year, we have requested Law colleges of our Country to contribute to the research paper on the subject of Crossborder Business Reorganization The Indian Perspective To the best of my information, the ITAT Bar Association, Mumbai and the All India Federation of Tax Practitioners are the only professional organizations in the country which have made a sincere attempt to develop the future Tax Bar by organizing a National Tax Moot Court Competition and also by encouraging law students to write a research paper on Direct Taxes.

In the last seven years, law students have had the opportunity of listening to the views of the judges of the Apex Court, Chief Justices and other Judges of High Courts, Members of the Tribunal and leading professionals.

The best team, best speaker and second best team have also had the opportunity of getting internships with leading Sr. Advocates and leading Law Firms. However, we are of the opinion that only a few students are participating in this educational programme, though we desired that a 21 larger number of law students participated.

We will be happy to receive feedbacks from students, professors and professionals, with innovative educational programmes where a larger number of students will be more interested in and wherein at least more than law students can participate and take advantage.

Whether we continue this Moot Court Competition or not, we desire to organize at least one educational programme in a year dedicated in the fond memory of Shri Nani A. Palkhivala for the benefit of law students in association with law colleges and law students which will benefit a large section of law students. I feel honoured and satisfied that I along with Professor Sanjay Kadam had the privilege of being associated with all the seven Nani Palkhivala Memorial National Tax Moot Court Competitions, interacting with law students and making an attempt to promote young professionals to the tax practice.

Honble President Shri R. Without their cooperation and help, it would not have been possible to organize the Palkhivala Memorial National Tax Moot Court Competition year after year. We desire to acknowledge the contribution of all those who have helped us directly or indirectly in organizing this Moot Court Competition. We will be failing in our duty if we dont acknowledge the support and contribution of Shri B.

Palkhivala for organizing this Moot Court Competition year after year. We wish all the best to the General Secretary Mr.

Their enthusiasm, commitment and thirst for knowledge, is the foremost reason for the success of this prestigious competition, year after year. Sanjay V. Palkhivala Nani Palkhivala With Sohrab P. Godrej, at the launch of the book You can no more expect a nation to have economic strength and growth by mere budgetary allocations than you can expect a child to grow up cultured and healthy because his father has set apart amounts to be spent on his education and medical care The easy style of socialism mistakes Amiri Hatao for Garibi Hatao; it aims at leveling down and not leveling up; it is content to satisfy the pangs of envy when it cannot satisfy the pangs of hunger; and since it cannot create income or wealth, it plans for poverty and equal distribution of misery.

Gross national happiness should have been given priority over gross national product. Indian democracy has reached its nadir because in our average politician we have a sordid amalgam of lack of intellect with lack of character and lack of knowledge.

The bane of India is the plethora of politicians and the paucity of statesmen. We have too much government and too little administration; too many public servants and too little public service; too many controls and too little welfare; too many laws and too little justice With T.
