IiAS said, “Until the divorce issues are settled and an independent investigation is completed, we expect both Gautam Singhania and Nawaz Modi to step off the board.”

IiAS raised concerns about Gautam Singhania’s proposed remuneration saying it is much more than the size of the business and not in line with industry peers at all.

The proposed structure, effective from July 2024 to June 2027, could see Gautam Singhania’s remuneration exceed regulatory limits and amount to around 35 crore- over 5% of the profit for FY24.
