Data Retention Policy

Record Retention Policy

1.     Introduction & Objective

Record retention is a complex subject as there is no one place where all records can be found, they are scattered as per the requirements of different legislation and applicable laws to the Company.

Document retention means the manner of retaining the documents of Golden Legand Leasing & Finance Ltd.

(hereinafter referred as “the Company / Company”) and the time period up to certain documents are to be retained by the Company and the time period when such documents can be allowed to be purged.

The Record Retention Policy aims at streamlining this and ensuring the smooth functioning of the Company.

Its core aspect is as follows:

  1. Nature and types of documents to be preserved/archived and retrieved
  2. Duration and circumstances under which they must be preserved
  3. Security and confidentiality of these records/documents
  4. Mode of destruction including but not limited to electronic and physical.

2.     Legal Requirement

Regulation 9 of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015 (hereinafter referred to as “SEBI Listing Regulations”) mandates that a listed entity shall have a policy for preservation of documents, approved by its board of directors, classifying them in at least two categories as follows-

  1. documents whose preservation shall be permanent in nature ;
  2. documents with a preservation period of not less than eight years after completion of the relevant transactions.

Provided that the listed entity may keep documents specified in clauses (a) and (b) in electronic mode.

Further Regulation 30 (8) of the SEBI Listing Regulations also refers to an archival policy as per which all events or information which has been disclosed to stock exchange(s) under regulation 30 shall be hosted on the website of the Company for a minimum period of five years and thereafter as per the archival policy of the company, as disclosed on its website.

Besides the above, as per applicable provisions of Companies Act, 2013 certain documents must be preserved permanently or up to a certain prescribed time.

In addition to the above, Prevention of Money-Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Rules, 2005 read with the Master Direction – Know Your Customer (KYC) Direction, 2016 as issued by the Reserve Bank of India and as amended from time to time specifies that the Company shall maintain, preserve and report customer account information, with reference to provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act and its rules.

In terms of Section 44AA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (“IT Act”)Assesses are required to preserve the specified books of account for a period of 6 years from the end of the relevant assessment year, i.e., for a total period of 8 previous years. The period of 6 years gets extended if the assessment is re-opened u/s. 147 of the IT Act, till the time assessment is completed. Transfer Pricing documents and information specified under Rule 10D must be maintained for a period of 8 years from the end of the relevant assessment year, i.e., for a total period of 10 previous years. Under amended Section 147 of the IT Tax, the reassessment can now be done upto 10 years from the end of relevant year and accordingly the data is required to be maintained for 11 years. If there is any appeal or any other litigation for any relevant assessment year then we are required to maintain such details till the issue is resolved

Further, the Goods and Services Act read with rules thereunder states that every registered person shall keep and maintain at his Principal Place of Business few records, viz. Invoices, Input Tax Credit Availed, Input register, Output register etc. for a period not less than 6 years from the date of filing of relevant Annual Return. If there is any appeal, show cause or any other litigation then we are required to maintain such details till the issue is resolved.

Recently, there is an order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court on account of the covid-19 pandemic, all statutory deadlines starting from 15.03.2020 till 28.02.2022 were excluded for the purpose of limitation. Accordingly, the period of book keeping will increase by nearly 2 years.

The Company had adopted a Policy on preservation and archiving of the Documents prepared in line with the requirements of SEBI Listing Regulations. In order to standardize record retention process across function, the Record Retention Policy (“Policy”) replaced the policy on preservation and archiving of documents dated November 04, 2015 which was specifically applicable to Secretarial function.

One of the pre-requisites of good records management is to ensure that records are neither prematurely destroyed nor kept for periods longer than required – at the cost of economy and efficiency. This policy has been framed keeping in view particularly the requirements of SEBI Listing Regulations, provisions of Companies Act, 2013, RBI Guidelines and other regulators (under whose gamut all the functions of the Company are subjected to). The Policy requires to provide for the systematic retention and destruction of documents received or created by the Company. This Policy addresses all documents regardless of physical or electronic form, and this Policy helps understand how long each type of document should be kept.
