Suzlon Energy, a renewable energy solutions provider, announced on Monday that there have been no financial irregularities or compliance violations within the organization. This statement followed the resignation of independent director Mark Desedelaar on Saturday.


In his resignation letter dated June 8, 2024, Desedelaar raised concerns about corporate governance within the company.
