This situation arises when there are cultural differences among peoples especially expatriates.
For long term solution you need to build team with open culture and transparency among team members with equal status. You may try open house.
Analyze the root cause for attrition and discuss with your senior management.

You have explained the deficiencies in your system. You have to arrange the house in order.
The PMS policy for apprisal and increment/promotion shall be estabilished. I think your company is a MNC and the expats are dominating the HR functions and day to day affairs of workings. Western work culture may not be suitable to Indian environment as per my experience with them. If you want to reduce the attrition, clear HR policies should be in place.

There are two reasons(of attrition) that I can see in your post only,
One is culture mismanagement - which your organisation has to do by appointing some one in strategic HR..or to involve you in handling that. How people work in different part of worlds differ from one part to another, so a middle course of action is required to be designed...
Another reason is as Pon mentioned, lack of clear HR policies and procedures, no matter company is MNC or Indian, what matters is clear cut procedures and process, which makes or breaks a company apart from other important things...
Not disclosing( not being transparent) to employees how the raise/increment is given is creating problem..How an employee is supposed to know that other person is performing better than him/her if there are no parameters to scale...just think about it.
Conduct exit interviews to find out the reasons why people are leaving, or conduct stay interviews, where you need to find out potential employees who you think are on the verge of leaving and then talk to them to know how they feel about the culture and company....
Hope it will be of help...

You must do root cause analysis of attrition
Develop good employee relations so that they problem comes out before their frustation and leaving job
Employment satisfaction survey can also help to know diffrent contraitns
Managemtn should be conveyed about major reaosns of attrition
Exit Interview may also help a lot to get the feedback and gives reaons of perosn leaving job
For New Employee minimumservice bond and also introduce to control attition
In case of junior level employees or tarinnes GET/DET/MT some depsosit /dedcution from salary can be launched which may be refuned to them after completion of say 3 or 5 years or so on
Long service rewards for completing 3/5/7/10/20/25 can be started to motivate employes and recongnize their long service/assocition with company
While recurting any perosn make sure his/her stablity/past service tenyure to assess his loyality/consistenancy in his career
I hope all these things make definetly improve attrition problem
