Name of related party and relationship:

Bosch Automotive Electronics India Private Limited (Fellow subsidiary company)

Salient Terms:

Ongoing, repetitive, in ordinary course of business and on arm?s length basis.

Date of approval by the Board, if any:

Bosch Limited is a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany ("RB GmbH") which has its presence across the globe. Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services in the automotive sector. The Company is a listed subsidiary of RB GmbH in India. RB GmbH, the ultimate holding company, holds 67.76% equity stake in the Company through Robert Bosch Internationale Beteiligungen AG.

The Company enters into transactions for sale and purchase of goods and raw materials and for availing / rendering services from / to RB GmbH & other Bosch Group companies, being related parties as defined under Regulation 2(1) (zb) of the SEBI LODR Regulations. Such transactions are carried out in the ordinary course of business and at arm?s length basis. As a part of related-party transactions, RB GmbH has granted the Company access to Bosch Group?s synergies, state of the art products & technologies and competencies which are essential for the Company to carry out its business operations, including but not limited to manufacturing activities. In the absence of such transactions the

Company would no longer have access to Bosch Group products, licenses or technologies or the use of "Bosch" and other Bosch Group-owned brands.

As a part of this set up the Company has been buying components, viz., Electronic Control Units ("ECUs") from its fellow subsidiary company in India, viz., Bosch Automotive Electronics India Pvt. Ltd. ("RBAI"), a related party, since 2009. These components are then sold as a part of the overall Fuel Injection Equipment ("FIE") system supplied to Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEMs") in India.

At the beginning of F.Y. 2022-23, the total value of the transactions forecast with RBAI were approx. Rs 978 crore for F.Y. 2022-23. Since the forecast was within the materiality threshold of Rs 1,000 crore, as prescribed under Regulation 23(1) of the SEBI LODR Regulations, there was no requirement of obtaining a shareholders? approval in terms of Regulation 23(4) of the LODR Regulations. The Audit committee also granted omnibus approval for the proposed transactions with RBAI for F.Y. 2022-23 in terms of Regulation 23(3) of the LODR Regulations.

However, with the easing of semiconductor supply- chain issues at the beginning of 2023, there was better fulfillment of pending and new orders of ECUs which are sold as a part of FIE systems by the Company to OEMs. The sudden & unexpected high increase in demand from OEMs in the fourth quarter of F.Y. 2022-23, led to higher purchases of ECUs from RBAI, which was unanticipated, and the value of

transactions with RBAI for F.Y. 2022-23 crossed the threshold limit of Rs 1,000 crore in the fourth quarter of F.Y. 2022-23.

In terms of Regulation 23(4) of the SEBI LODR Regulations, since the transaction with RBAI was deemed to be material, the Company was required to obtain approval from its shareholders prior to entering into these transactions.

The Board of the Company vide its resolution dated May 10, 2023 has resolved that the Company is required to obtain a post-facto approval from its shareholders at the ensuing Annual General Meeting scheduled on August 01, 2023.

It is relevant to note that as soon as the inadvertent potential non-compliance came to the attention of the Company, the Company immediately took steps to rectify the inadvertent non-compliance. The non- compliance by the Company is not deliberate. The Company has not made any undue profit or avoided any loss on account of the non-compliance and no harm or loss has been caused to any investor.

In view of the above, the Company seeks to suo-moto and voluntarily settle all proceedings that may arise and engage with the Securities and Exchange Board of India on such terms as may be mutually acceptable, in accordance with the applicable regulations on settling the same by consent in full and final settlement of any and all proceedings that may be proposed or contemplated in this respect.
