Client Query 049:- Hello, hope everything is fine. Wanted to ask that we intent to buy and purchase some products from our holding company that owns 100% shares of our company.Wanted to ask that are we required to follow PPRA Rules or can we purchase the product without tendering process as we are procuring from our holding company i.e. if we procure from our holding company can we avail any exemption from the tendering process? If you could reply at your earliest, I would be highly obliged.
