Gatekeepers of Governance (2014) (Past Edition)
Notwithstanding the prescriptive regime envisaged in Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement, the practice of Corporate Governance in spirit leaves a lot to be desired. The provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 have given Corporate Governance a statutory framework. However the increasing acceptance of Corporate Governance practices as value enhancers on a sustainable basis has to be advocated and driven by persons who see themselves as change agents on a mission. They are the true Gatekeepers of Governance, in that they facilitate the acceptance and adoption of good practices while keeping out what is undesirable and unproductive. This Summit is a clarion call to the Gatekeepers of Governance to spread the message that good governance is a necessary condition for sustained performance in increasingly competitive times.
