When Narayana Murthy walked the talk on Good Governance
June 12, 2013
Time, economic conditions, pressure of high expectations and the tax department may have taken a toll on his image, but there was a time when NR Narayana Murthy not only walked the talk on good governance but showed how committees can function differently
In 2003, I had the privilege of being a part of the Narayana Murthy Committee on Corporate Governance set up by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The committee made some tough recommendations, many of which have now become a part of the ‘voluntary’ code prescribed by the ministry of corporate affairs.
