THE TIDE RISES SLOWLY: Corporate Governance in Development by Omkar Goswami
Corporate Governance in Development: The Experiences of India
eBOOK available at
The past few years have seen an extraordinary movement by Indian enterprises to sign up for codes of corporate governance; first voluntary, later compulsory. This is not the consequence of any scandal but the direct result of the recognition by a new breed of managers and entrepreneurs that good corporate governance is intimately linked to sound business and opens the road to sources of finance. There is still some way to go; bankruptcy and accounting procedures need improvement, the stock and bond markets need to perform better and pension funds should play a fuller role. But there are real grounds for optimism. This is chapter 4 of the work that outlines India’s experience.
