The Investors Grievance Redressal Record of M/s. Indo American Credit Corporation has been very poor and there were large number of investor complaints pending against it. Inspite of number of opportunities given by SEBI to the Company and its directors to make the default good, they have failed to come out with a positive response. SEBI had requested Company time and again to forward certain information in the interest of investors in general, but the Company did not respond to this and thus, it has been observed that the Company and its management has remained indifferent to the investors grievances.
