About the Book


Corporate governance (CG) has emerged as an important ideal. There has been a spate of corporate frauds worldwide, e.g. Enron in the United States and Satyam Computers in India, to name a few. Such frauds eroded the wealth of shareholders who invest precious capital in enterprises. CG aims at protecting the interest of stakeholders, mainly equity shareholders. So, a robust regulatory framework and its enforcement is the foundation for ensuring competent corporate governance and maintaining the credibility of a regulatory system, in order to sustain investment activity in businesses.

The book provides insights about:

·     The concepts, historical views, theories, and models of corporate governance.

·     Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement.

·     Provisions of the Companies Act, 2013.

·     SEBI (LODR) Regulations, 2015.

·     Past practices of selected CNX Nifty Index based companies and their compliance with corporate governance.

·     Other important aspects relevant to corporate governance.

The book will be a useful reference for undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses, as well as for researchers.
