VIGIL MECHANISM/WHISTLE BLOWER POLICY

The Company has established a Vigil (Whistle Blower) Mechanism and formulated a Policy in order to provide a framework for responsible and secure whistle blowing/vigil mechanism.

The Vigil (Whistle Blower) Mechanism aims to provide a channel to the Directors and employees to report genuine concerns about unethical behaviour, actual or suspected fraud or violation of the Codes of Conduct or policy.

The Company is committed to adhere to the highest standards of ethical, moral and legal conduct of business operations and in order to maintain these standards, the Company encourages its employees who have genuine concerns about suspected misconduct to come forward and express these concerns without fear of punishment or unfair treatment.

The mechanism provides for adequate safeguards against victimization of Directors and employees to avail of the mechanism and also provide for direct access to the Chairman of the Audit Committee.

This neither releases employees from their duty of confidentiality in the course of their work nor can it be used as a route for raising malicious or unfounded allegations about a personal situation.

Under this vigil mechanism both directors and employees can report their concern about the unethical behaviour, actual or suspected fraud or violation of Company’s code of conduct. All Directors and Employees of the Company are eligible to make Protected Disclosures under the Policy inrelation to matters concerning the Company. All Protected Disclosures should be reported in writing by the complainant as soon as possible, not later than 30 days after the Whistle Blower becomes aware of the same and should either be typed or written in a legible handwriting in English. All Protected Disclosures should be addressed to the Chairman of the Audit Committee . If an investigation leads to a conclusion that an improper or unethical act has been committed, the Chairman of the Audit Committee  shall recommend to the Board of Directors of the Company to take such disciplinary or corrective action as it may deem fit. It is further confirmed that no person has been denied access to the audit committee.

The Contact Details of the Chairman of the Audit Committee is as under:-

Name and Address – Mrs. Pooja Kukar
