They are saving lives by putting themselves in danger, he said.
Doctors’ Day is celebrated on July 1, on the birth anniversary of Bidhan Chandra Roy to recognise the contribution of doctors to society.
July 1 is also observed as Charted Accountants’ Day.
In his message, the prime minister said 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.”
In a short video clip, he said the responsibility on the society’s economic health lies with CAs.
