Lost Arbitration Case: Infosys To Pay Rs 12.17 Crore to Its Former CFO

Arbitral Tribunal decreed a 12.17 crore compensation with interest to Rajiv Bansal, Former Chief Financial Officer of Infosys Limited after the latter lost the arbitration case over severance package.

Infosys said it will take legal advice for further action on the issue.

The IT firm had agreed to pay Bansal a severance amount of Rs 17.38 crore or 24 months of salary, but the company suspended payments after he got Rs 5 crore as co-founder N R Narayana Murthy and others objected to the severance package as excessive.

Following this, Bansal had dragged his former employer to arbitration to claim the remaining Rs 12 crore of his severance pay.

Bansal’s severance payout has been one of the issues that Infosys founders had raised to allege governance lapses at the Bengaluru-based firm.

When Bansal left Infosys in 2015, Infosys had agreed to pay him Rs 17.38 crore in severance pay, equivalent to 24 months of pay.
