“Over the years, our employees have worked relentlessly to transform the way trade is done in the country and empowering businesses of Bharat. We want to take this opportunity to reward our employees for their continuous effort and significant contribution with a meaningful wealth creation opportunity through an ESOP liquidity program. We would like to thank them for their resilience and dedication to their jobs in these unprecedented times,” the internal mail to the employees said.
