Non-executive directors are the custodians of the governance process. They are not involved in the day-to-day running of business but monitor the executive activity and contribute to the development of strategy.
Independent directors are directors who apart from receiving director’s remuneration do not have any other material pecuniary relationship or transactions with the company, its promoters, its management or its subsidiaries, which in the judgement of the board may affect their independence of judgement.

Agree with the learned members !!!
Normally MD/WTD and a director drawing salary are considered as executive director. You may consider other directors as non-executive directors.
A non-executive director may be an independent or dependent director. Independent director here means a director who does not have any material monetary relationship with the company except his approved remuneration.

Independent Directors concept used in Big Companies and Independent Directors are for carrying of Company from Directors and other internal controls also beneficial for Shareholders and also from Non-Executive Directors
and one imp thing is that Independent Director will also be a Non-Executive Director because he dont come regular.

A member of the board may be an executive director or a non executive director. An executive director is involved in the day to day affairs of the company and is in full time employment of the company. However a non-executive director is not involved in the day to day management and is expected to provide an objective judgement on issues facing the company.
A person maybe in full-time employment of a holding company and still be a non-executive director for it’s subsidiary company unless he is explicitly involved in the management of it’s day to day affairs.
An independent director is essentially, a non executive director who has no material pecuniary transactions with the company, except for his remuneration. There are several criterion that a director has to qualify for being an “Independent director”, depending on the corporate regulations in force in a country. There may be limits on the extent of shareholding, on the interest in the company material to personal wealth, and on any fiduciary relationship with the company that may impede his judgement.
An independent director is a non executive director, but a non executive director need not necessarily be an independent director.
