POLICY STATEMENT
  • This policy is intended to assist everyone in conducting our business legally, ethically and with integrity. It is not meant to stop legitimate business activities so long as those activities comply with the law and with the Company’s internal policies.
  • Company Employees must comply with applicable laws in the countries where the Company operates, including local anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws. The laws that may apply to the Company include the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 of India ("Prevention of Corruption Act")
  • The Prevention of Corruption Act in India makes it a crime for any person, by himself or together with any other person, to corruptly give, promise or offer to any person any gratification as an inducement to or reward for any person doing or forbearing to do anything in respect of any matter or transaction whatsoever, actual or proposed. The Act specifically prohibits such payments, promises or offers to any member, officer or servant of a public body.
  • The Prevention of Corruption Act also makes it a crime for any person, by himself or in conjunction with any other person, to corruptly solicit or receive, or agree to receive for himself or for any other person, any gratification as an inducement to or reward for any person doing or forbearing to do anything in respect of any matter or transaction, actual or proposed.
  • Provide information and guidance on how to recognise and deal with bribery and corruption issues.
WHO IS COVERED BY THE POLICY?
This policy applies to all individuals working at all levels and grades whether permanent, fixed-term or temporary. In this policy, third party means any individual or organisation CUSTOMER come into contact with during the course of CUSTOMER’s work, and includes actual and potential clients, customers, suppliers, agents and government and public bodies.
WHAT IS BRIBERY?
A bribe is an inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to gain any commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage.

HOSPITALITY AND GIFTS


The Company recognizes that the exchange of business courtesies, such as modest gifts (but not cash), meals and entertainment (including invitations to attend events), is a common practice for various legitimate reasons, including to create goodwill, establish trust in relationships, improve the image of a commercial organization, or better present products or services.

WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE?


  • Give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received, or to reward a business advantage already given;
  • Give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality to a government official, agent or representative to "facilitate" or expedite a routine procedure
  • Accept payment from a third party that you know or suspect is offered with the expectation that it will obtain a business advantage for them
  • accept a gift or hospitality from a third party if you know or suspect that it is offered or provided with an expectation that a business advantage will be provided by us in return
  • Threaten or retaliate against another worker who has refused to commit a bribery offence or who has raised concerns under this policy; or
  • Engage in any activity that might lead to a breach of this policy.

FACILITATION PAYMENTS AND KICKBACKS


We do not make, and will not accept, facilitation payments or "kickbacks" of any kind. Facilitation payments are typically small, unofficial payments made to secure or expedite a routine government action by a government official.

If you are asked to make a payment on our behalf, you should always be mindful of what the payment is for and whether the amount requested is proportionate to the goods or services provided. You should always ask for a receipt which details the reason for the payment.

DONATIONS/SOLICITATIONS


We do not make charitable donations or contributions to political parties. This policy disallows payment even where an employee has been requested or demanded by a government official or of the Government official threatens adverse actions against the company unless the payment has been made

INTERNAL FINANCIAL CONTROLS AND RECORD KEEPING


The Company should record all financial transactions according to the Company's financial and internal control policies and procedures. Payments and other compensation to third parties should be accurately recorded in the Company’s corporate books, records, and accounts in a timely manner and in reasonable detail. No undisclosed or unrecorded accounts of the Company may be established for any purpose. False, misleading, incomplete, inaccurate, or artificial entries in the books, records, or accounts of the Company are prohibited. Personal funds should not be used to accomplish what is otherwise prohibited by this Policy.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES


You must ensure that you read, understand and comply with this policy. The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery and other forms of corruption are the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control. All workers are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy. You must notify your manager and/or the Compliance Manager as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with this policy has occurred, or may occur in the future. For example, if a client or potential client offers you something to gain a business advantage with us, or indicates to you that a gift or payment is required to secure their business.

HOW TO RAISE A CONCERN


All employees are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of malpractice at the earliest possible stage. If you are unsure whether a particular act constitutes bribery or corruption, or if you have any other queries, these should be raised with the Manager immediately.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE A VICTIM OF BRIBERY OR CORRUPTION


It is important that you inform Manager as soon as possible if you are offered a bribe by a third party, are asked to make one, suspect that this may happen in the future, or believe that you are a victim of another form of unlawful activity. All report of a suspicious conduct will be treated as confidential.

PROTECTION


Employees who refuse to accept or offer a bribe, or those who raise concerns or report another's wrongdoing, are sometimes worried about possible repercussions. We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. 1We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of refusing to take part in bribery or corruption, or because of reporting in good faith their suspicion that an actual or potential bribery or other corruption offence has taken place, or may take place in the future.

TRAINING AND COMMUNICATION


All employees operating in areas that are perceived as high risk as far as the Prevention of Corruption Act is concerned will receive regular, relevant training on how to implement and adhere to this policy. Our zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption is communicated to all suppliers, contractors, agents and business and other partners at the outset of our relationship with them and as appropriate thereafter.

MONITORING AND REVIEW


The Manager will monitor the effectiveness and review the implementation of this policy, regularly considering its suitability, adequacy and effectiveness. Any improvements identified will be made as soon as possible. Internal control systems and procedures will be subject to regular audits to provide assurance that they are effective in countering bribery and corruption.
