DG is the investigation arm of the regulator and cases are referred to it by the Commission when there is prima-facie evidence of violations. Two other cases have been filed against Vishal Gupta and Albion InfoTel Ltd. These have been filed against Google Inc, Google Ireland Ltd and Google India. “The cases filed do not allege any financial loss to the government,” Jaitley said. To a separate query on whether there have been violations of Companies Act, 2013, by private companies with regard to payment of salary and other allowances to employees, in the last three years, he said the relevant provisions came into force only from April 1, 2014. “The salaries of managerial personnel or employees of a private company, except the salaries of board level managerial personnel of a subsidiary of a listed company are not regulated under the Act,” he said in another written reply.
