Mrs. Zarin Daruwala, CEO of Standard Chartered India, was invited to the Ladies Study Group forum held on 16th July 2019 at the Kolkata Centre For Creativity.
Mrs Iti Dasgupta, LSG President, said: “Zarin proves sky is the ceiling.”
Zarin truly believes ‘Nothing is impossible!’ “In order to succeed, it is very important to both learn and unlearn,” she said.
Zarin credited her accomplishment to the people who helped her along the way, eminent Chartered Accountant Mr YH Malegam, her first boss, an ICICI stalwart, Mrs Lalita Gupte, and Padma Bhusan N Vaghul, former Chairman, ICICI.
In her interactive session with well-known media personality, Mrs Nilaanjana J Chakraborty, Zarin touched upon the recent developments in the economy.
She said the new RBI directive on stressed assets and corporate defaulting, “is a carrot and stick approach ….. Earlier, it (onus of resolving a default) was a bank responsibility; now it is also a client’s responsibility,” which has improved recent repayment records.
Zarin also spoke passionately about how female literacy changes the dynamics of a household and said she would like to work with a NGO dedicated towards eradicating blindness.
