Corporate Governance in India is an authoritative discourse on the current state of corporate governance in India. Beginning with an analysis of its evolution, the authors discuss the effectiveness and applicability of corporate governance mechanisms in the context of the institutional structure within which Indian companies operate. In this volume, the authors take the readers through an in-depth coverage of six important corporate governance mechanisms: 1. Ownership structure 2. Board of directors 3. Executive compensation 4. Auditor and the audit committee 5. Market for corporate control 6. Disclosure and enforcement Years of extensive research combined with contemporary data collected from various corporate governance reports from across India makes this volume a priceless ready reckoner. Along with a convenient logical structure, the book provides a comprehensive coverage of the governance mechanisms of Indian corporations, especially in light of the international research in the area.
