It is about commitment to values, about ethical business conduct and about making a distinction between personal & corporate funds in the management of a company.” The definition is drawn from the Gandhian principle of trusteeship and the Directive Principles of the Indian Constitution. Corporate Governance is viewed as ethics and a moral duty.

10 Clause 49 In corporate hierarchy two types of managements are envisaged: i) companies managed by Board of Directors; and ii) those by a Managing Director, whole-time director or manager subject to the control and guidance of the Board of Directors. As per Clause 49, for a company with an Executive Chairman at least 50 per cent of the board should comprise independent directors. In the case of a company with a non- executive Chairman, at least one-third of the board should be independent directors. It would be necessary for chief executives and chief financial officers to establish and maintain internal controls and implement remediation and risk mitigation towards deficiencies in internal controls, among others. Clause VI (ii) of Clause 49 requires all companies to submit a quarterly compliance report to SE in the prescribed form. The clause also requires that there be a separate section on corporate governance in the annual report with a detailed compliance report. A company is also required to obtain a certificate either from auditors or practising company secretaries regarding compliance of conditions as stipulated, and annex the same to the director's report. The clause mandates composition of an audit committee; one of the directors is required to be "financially literate". It is mandatory for all listed companies to comply with the clause by December 31, 2005.

11 Combined Code - Corp. Gov. Schedules Schedule A Provisions on the design of performance related remuneration This goes into more detail about the problem of director pay. Schedule B Guidance on liability of non-executive directors - care, skill and diligence Under s.172 of the Companies Act 2006 the board of directors' duty of competence was codified. Always pre-existing in the common law, directors are liable on ordinary principles of negligence for a failure to show a reasonable standard of competence. This statement is designed to strengthen a presumption that non-executive directors will be liable for poor board performance only to the extent of their involvement in the affairs. What Schedule B here is trying to make clear is that the contribution towards negligent default will differ between executives and non-executives. Schedule C Disclosure of corporate governance arrangements This sets out a checklist of which duties must be complied with (or explained) under Listing Rule It makes clear what obligations there are, and that everything should be posted on the company's website. Code compliance?
