1. What is corporate governance?
In this section of the research paper we will focus on India’s Corporate Governance. To understand better we will define the term “corporate governance” usually refers to the rules and processes that are put in place to ensure the efficient and controlled administration and management ofa limited company.
Good corporate governance helps an organization achieve several objectives and some of the more important ones include:
* Strengthen management oversight functions and accountability.
* Balance skills, experience and independence on the board appropriate to the nature and extent of company operations
* Establish a code to ensure integrity
* Safeguard theintegrity of company reporting
* Risk management and internal control
* Disclosure of all relevant and material matters
* Recognition and preservation of needs of shareholders
