Effective Board governance for Independent Directors


The Companies Act, 2013 aims to bring in sweeping changes to the corporate governance environment in India.One of the areas which the new law brings into sharper focus is the role of Independent Director's (IDs) and business owners, who are expected to bring in 'outside-in views', in enhancing corporate governance standards for the listed companies and the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). IDs and business owners play a critical role in implementing sound corporate governance practices in listed companies and SME segment. They are expected to assist in implementing sound corporate governance practices, thus contributing to transparency, performance and overall good governance. Stakeholders are increasingly relying on Ids and business owners to deliver on their responsibilities to enhance corporate governance standards. Under the new dispensation, the key responsibilities of IDs and business owners relate to strategy, risk management and internal financial controls, related party transactions, ethical and compliance oversight and succession planning and executive remuneration.
