Client Query 052:- Hello, hope everything is well at your end. Wanted a clarification over one thing from the expertise of your firm. We are under a holding company who owns our 100% shares. Now we intent to buy product from our holding company. The PPRA rules are applicable on both of us, i.e. on our company as well as our holding company. So wanted to confirm that in order to purchase a product from our holding can we buy it directly without going under any tendering process. Your early response in this regard would be appreciated.
