Whistle Blower Policy
Employees of Cadila Pharmaceuticals Limited (“CPL”) demonstrate behaviours aligned to corporate values and discharge their duties and responsibilities while observing highest standards of business and personal ethics.
CPL believes in the conduct of its affairs in a fair and transparent manner to foster professionalism, honesty, integrity and ethical behaviour. CPL is committed to developing a culture where it is safe for all the Stakeholders to raise concerns about any misconduct or unacceptable practice.
As per the provisions of Section 177(9) of the Companies Act, 2013, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Meeting of Board and its Powers) Rules, 2014 mandates every listed company or such class or classes of companies as prescribed to establish a vigil mechanism for directors and employees to report genuine concern or grievances. As CPL falls under the prescribed class of companies, policy for vigil mechanism (whistle blower) is being established.
This Whistle Blower Policy has been formulated to enable all Stakeholders including employees and directors to raise concern against any malpractice such as immoral, unethical conduct, fraud, corruption, and potential infractions of the Code of Conduct of the Company, breaches of copyright or patent and alike.
