- Another whistle blower complaint upon Infosys CEO Salil Parekh
- Salil Parekh was consuming the value systems of the company, the whistleblower said
- Infosys, however, is yet to return to the whistle blower’s complaint
Another whistle blower complaint from global software subject Infosys accused its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Salil Parekh of committing crimes and urged the Chairman and the committee of directors to act upon him on his volatile complaints.
“Though it is a year and eight months after Parekh entered the company, he runs from Mumbai in contravention of the condition that the CEO has to be based in Bengaluru and not Mumbai. What is stopping the board from insisting on his trip to Bengaluru,” said the whistleblower in an unsigned and undated note to Infosys Chairman and co-founder Nandan Nilekani, Independent Directors on the Board.
Claiming to be an operator in the $11-billion company’s finance department, the whistleblower complained that he was powerless to disclose his status fearing retaliation for the damning disclosures he was making against Parkeh.
“I am an employee working in the finance department. I am submitting this whistleblower complaint as the matter is so volatile that I fear retaliation if I disclose my identity. Please excuse me for the same, but the matter is of grave importance,” said the employee in the complaint, accessed by IANS through sources on Monday night.
As an employee shareholder, the whistleblower said it was his duty to bring to the notice chairman board a few facts Parekh that were eroding the value systems of the company.
“Hope that you will execute your responsibilities in the true spirit of Infosys employees and shareholders who have faith in the company,” the complaint noted.
As Parekh did not relocate to Bengaluru even after he was given two months to do and was visiting the tech hub twice a month, the techie said the company had incurred Rs 22 lakh towards his airfare and local transportation.
“Four business class tickets per month plus home to airport drop in Mumbai, airport pick-up in Bengaluru and drop on the return journey,” alleged the whistleblower.
Infosys, however, is yet to respond to the whistleblower’s complaint.
