Description
Corporate Governance means a set of relationships between a company's management. its board, its shareholders as well as other stakeholders which provides the structure through which objectives of a company are set, along with the means of attaining those objectives and monitoring performance. It helps define the way authority as well as responsibilities are allocated and how decisions are made. Growing size and complexity of India's financial system underscores the significance of strengthening governance standards in companies. Recent events in a dynamic and rapidly evolving corporate and financial landscape have led to increasing scrutiny of the role of promoter(s), major shareholder(s) and senior management vis-a-vis the role of a board. In the context where management plays the role of an agent of a board the board in turn plays the role of an agent of shareholders, governance failures have brought to fore the impact of quality of governance on efficiency in allocation of resources, performance of companies, risk management as well as sustainability.
