Pune: IT Employee’s Complaint Sparks Criminal Investigation Against Exusia India Private Limited

Pune, 29th June 2023: In a significant development, the Judicial Magistrate (First Class) Court No. 5, Pune, has issued a groundbreaking order in favor of Rajneesh Kumar Sharma, an aggrieved IT employee, marking a significant milestone in the pursuit of justice. The Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), an organization for IT employees, has warmly welcomed this victorious outcome, which sets a strong precedent for fair treatment and lawful conduct within the IT industry.

Rajneesh Kumar Sharma, a former employee of Exusia India Private Limited, filed a complaint against the company with the support of NITES, alleging various irregularities. These included the non-deposit of Employee Provident Fund contributions and tax deductions, unjustified termination, and non-payment of salary and gratuity dues. Despite reaching out to various authorities such as the Labour Commissioner’s office, Yerwada Police Station, Police Commissioner Office Pune, Assistant Commissioner of Police, and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sharma’s complaint went unanswered by the company representatives, and the police officials denied filing an FIR against the company. Consequently, Sharma sought justice through the courts with the assistance of NITES.

In the case of Sharma versus Exusia India Private Limited, the court has issued an order under Section 156(3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure. This order directs the Yerwada Police Station to initiate an investigation into the alleged offenses committed by the accused, which are punishable under Sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 417 (cheating), and 418 (cheating with the knowledge that wrongful loss may ensue to the person whose interest the offender is bound to protect) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

NITES has played a pivotal role in supporting Sharma throughout the legal proceedings, advocating for his rights and ensuring that justice is served. The court’s order, recognizing the validity of Sharma’s complaint and acknowledging the seriousness of the alleged offenses, underscores the importance for employers to fulfill their statutory obligations and treat employees with fairness and respect.

Expressing their elation at the outcome of the case, NITES emphasized Sharma’s perseverance and dedication, as well as the unwavering support of the organization. “This victory highlights the significance of employee unions in safeguarding the rights and interests of IT employees. NITES urges all employees to be aware of their rights, stand up against injustice, and seek legal recourse when faced with unlawful practices. This groundbreaking decision underscores the importance of accountability and sends a clear message that unethical practices and the exploitation of employees will not be tolerated,” said Harpreet Singh Saluja, President of NITES.
