She is single by choice, spiritually inclined, and as a part of her learning and growth journey, loves to take risks and invites challenges. Hailing from a middle-class background, Ms. Lata took up the field of commerce and pursued chartered accountancy in parallel. Prior to completion of the qualification and exploring various areas, she decided to take up tax as an area of specialisation and her only aspiration when she started her career was to head a tax department at a corporate.
