Late Shri Devendra Mehta was the founder of Ravi and Dev Chartered Accountants, the firm which led to the inception of SDBA & Co. A fiercely passionate visionary, he was a name to reckon with in the field of taxation owing to his unparalleled dedication to not only persistently studying the law, but also keeping abreast with the minutest of changes in the regulatory scenario, the stimuli driving them and the stimuli triggered on their account. His relentless pursuit of excellence was tempered by over 35 years of practice in tax and regulatory matters. In the wake of his untimely demise, he not only left behind a void which will always be difficult to fill, but also a legacy of ideals and best practices which continue to be a source of direction and inspiration to many.
