   CRITERIA / POLICY OF MAKING PAYMENTS TO NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS

With changes in the corporate governance norms brought by the Companies Act, 2013 as well as Equity Listing Agreement, the role of Non-Executive Directors (NED) and the degree and quality of their engagement with the Board and the Company has undergone significant changes over a period of time. The Company is being hugely benefited from the expertise, advice and inputs provided by the NEDs. They devote their valuable time in deliberating on the strategic and critical issues in the course of the Board and Committee meetings of the Company and give their valuable advice, suggestion and guidance to the management of the Company from time to time. Levels of remuneration to the NEDs are determined such that they attract, retain and motivate directors of the quality and ability required to run the Company successfully.

 

As per Regulation 46 (2) of the SEBI (Listing Obligations & Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015.listed entity shall disseminate following information on the website of the Company:
