Introduction and Purpose

Dosti Realty is committed to the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability. In line with that commitment, we expect employees, and others that we deal with, who have serious concerns about any aspect of the organisations work to come forward and voice those concerns. This is called being a whistle-blower.

The Whistle-blower policy at Dosti Realty is a critical tool for protecting individuals who report activities believed to be illegal, dishonest, unethical, or otherwise improper.

What Is Whistle blowing?

Whistle blowing at Dosti Realty encourages and enables employees and associates connected with the Dosti Group to raise serious concerns within the organisation rather than overlooking a problem or ‘blowing the whistle’ outside.

Employees are often the first to realise that there is something seriously wrong within the organisation. However, they may not express their concerns as they feel that speaking up would be disloyal to their colleagues or to the organisation.

Who Does The Policy Apply To?

The policy applies to all employees, (including those designated as casual workers, temporary workers, agency workers, contract workers or authorised volunteers) of the Dosti Group, and those contractors working for the organisation on the premises, for example, agency staff, drivers, etc. It also covers suppliers and those providing services under a contract with the organisation.

This Policy Aims At
  • providing avenues for you to raise concerns in confidence and receive feedback on any action taken.
  • ensuring that you receive a response to your concerns and that you are aware of how to raise a concern.
  • reassuring you that you will be protected from possible reprisals or victimisation if you have a reasonable belief that you have made a disclosure in good faith.
What Type Of Concerns Are Covered?

Concerns related to:

  • all cases of conduct which are an offence or a breach of law.
  • any kind of blunders in carrying out any justice.
  • health and safety risks, including risks to the public as well as other employees.
  • damage to the environment.
  • the unauthorised use of organisation funds.
  • possible fraud and corruption within / related to Dosti Group.
  • sexual or physical abuse of fellow mates / clients.
  • any other unethical conduct.

NB. Other procedures are available to employees e.g. The grievance procedure which relates to complaints about your own employment. This policy also does not replace other complaints procedure which are already in use.


All concerns will be treated in confidence and every effort will be made not to reveal your identity if you so wish. Till the appropriate time, however, you may need to come forward as a witness.

This policy encourages you however to put your name to your concern whenever possible. Please note that you:

  • must disclose the information in good faith.
  • must believe it to be substantially true.
  • must not act maliciously or make false allegations.
  • must not seek any personal gain.
How To Raise Your Concern
  • You shall raise concerns to the Whistle-blower Committee comprising of Mr. Sumeet Gupta and Ms. Harshita Talsania either verbally (8097552140 / 961944032) or in writing to concern@dostirealty.com
  • The Committee must raise the concern to the Management and depending on the severity, a meeting to be arranged between the Management and the complainant within 5 working days.
  • In case if no meeting is arranged, a written revert shall be given by the Committee informing you what steps have been taken on your complaint.
  • In case the complainant does not hear back from the Whistle-blower Committee, she/he can directly approach the Management for the same post 5 days of raising the concern.

This may depend, however, on the seriousness and sensitivity of the issue involved and who is suspected of the malpractice. For example, if you believe that HR / Management is involved you should approach a more senior level of management like you may report cases directly to Ms. Shraddha Goradia and Mr. Anuj Goradia.

Financial allegations require that the Management shall be notified of all financial or accounting irregularities or suspected irregularities and hence they must be immediately brought to the notice of the Whistle-blower Committee.

Significance of raising a Concern without fear

The organisation recognises that the decision to report a concern can be a difficult one to make. If what you are saying is true, you should have nothing to fear because you will be doing your duty to your employer and those for whom you provide a service.

Whistleblower protections are provided in two important areas: confidentiality and retaliation. Insofar as possible, the confidentiality of the whistleblower will be maintained. The organisation will not tolerate any harassment of victimisation and will take appropriate action to protect you when you raise a concern in good faith.
