Piramal Enterprises informed the stock exchanges that its board has approved the appointment of Shikha Sharma, the former chief executive officer of Axis Bank, as a non-executive director.

The appointment came into effect on March 31, 2022, the regulatory filing stated.

"Board of directors of the company at its meeting held on 31st March, 2022, based on the recommendations of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee, appointed Ms Shikha Sharma as a Non-Executive Non-Independent Director of the Company with effect from 31st March, 2022, liable to retire by rotation, subject to the approval of the shareholders of the company," it said.

Piramal also confirmed that Sharma is not related to any of the incumbent directors of the company, and "is not debarred from holding the office of director by virtue of any SEBI order".
