It is well evident that work experience is an indispensable part of every professional course. In the same manner practical training in any organization is must for each and every individual, who is undergoing management course. Without the practical exposure one cannot consider himself as a qualified capable manager. Hence to fulfill this requirement of research report was completed at under guidance Mr. Utkal khandelwal. At first everything seems strange and unheard but as the time passes one understands the concept and working of the organization and thereby develop professional relationship. Initially it is felt as if classroom study was irrelevant and it is unless in any concern working. But gradually it is realized that all basic fundamental concepts studied are linked in one or other ways to the organization. But how and what can be done with fundamentals depends upon the intellectual and applicability of the individual

we try to reach the bank employees/managers and ask them about corporate governance. With the introduction of corporate governance in banking sector the banking is made much easier and transparent. With increasing competition the banks have to pay entire attention on their working. The banking industry is also not spread from this competition. Through the survey study. The reason of assigning such a project to a management student is to get frank feedbacks from the bank employees about the exact picture of the corporate . we try to find out the problems of the corporate governance and with the help of questionnaire. Now the bank employees need not to wait to get the introduction from the top position to take decision. Hence to make the working easy and transparent the banks accepted corporate governance.Introduction to the topic INTRODUCTION CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK In today’s world there is a end throat competition in each industry.

There are yet other aspects to the corporate governance subject. laws and institutions affecting the way a corporation is directed. Corporate governance also includes the relationships among the many stakeholders involved and the goals for which the corporation is governed. Corporate governance is a multi-faceted subject. particularly due to the high-profile collapses of a number of large U.governance. There has been renewed interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations since 2001. The principal stakeholders are the shareholders. The non-employed officials (such as students) are totally unbiased for their preference. the environment and the community at large. firms such as Enron Corporation and WorldCom. An important theme of corporate governance is to ensure the accountability of certain individuals in an organization through mechanisms that try to reduce or eliminate the principal-agent problem. with a strong emphasis on shareholders welfare. customs. regulators.

Indeed . It was clear that something was amiss in the area of corporate governance all over the world. 2. While corporate Practices in the US companies came under attack. been an important field of query within the Finance discipline for decades. Researchers in finance have actively investigated the topic for at least a quarter century1 and the father of modern economics. There have been debates about whether the Anglo-Saxon market. the telecom behemoth. Large and trusted companies from Parma at in Italy to the Multinational newspaper group Hollinger Inc. himself had recognized the problem over two centuries ago. the differences in the quality of corporate Governance in these developed countries fade in comparison to the chasm that exists Starting from the seminal “agency problem” paper of Jensen and Macklin (1976). Worse. they seemed to indicate only the tip of a dangerous iceberg. it appeared that the problem was far More widespread..Houston. Dick Grasso. Even the prestigious New York Stock Exchange had to remove its director.
Effective corporate Governance enhances access to external financing by firms. There is a variation of a factor of 8 in the “control premium” (transaction price of shares in block transfers Signifying control transfer less the ordinary share price) between countries with the highest level of equity rights protection and those with the lowest. The return on assets (ROA) is about twice as High in the countries with the highest level of equity rights protection as in countries with The lowest protection. 4. Good corporate governance also lowers of the cost of capital by reducing risk and creates higher firm valuation once again boosting real investments. There are several channels through which the causality works. the ratio of stock market capitalization to GDP in the countries in the highest quartile of shareholder right enactment and enforcement is about four times as large as that for countries in the lowest quartile. 5. in turn. 3. Poor corporate governance also hinders the creation and development of new firms.

The proportion of private credit to GDP in countries in the highest quartile of creditor right enactment and enforcement is more than double that in the countries in the lowest quartile. As for equity financing. 6. leading to greater investment.corporate governance and economic development are intrinsically linked. Effective corporate governance systems promote the development of strong financial systems – irrespective of whether they are largely bank-based or market-based – which.
All these features make corporate governance a particularly important issue in India. In addition. 8 Indeed poor transparency and corporate governance norms are believed to be the key reasons behind the Asian Crisis of 1997. Managers enjoy actual control of business and may not serve in the best interests of the shareholders. These potential problems of corporate governance are universal. and a generally high level of corruption. There is a strong inverse relationship between the quality of corporate governance and currency depreciation. Finally. a dominance of family firms. the Indian financial sector is marked with a relatively unsophisticated equity market vulnerable to manipulation and with rudimentary analyst activity. good corporate governance can remove mistrust between different stakeholders. Limited liability and dispersed ownership – essential features that the jointstock company form of organization thrives on – inevitably lead to a distance and inefficient monitoring of management by the actual owners of the business.7 Good corporate governance can significantly reduce the risk of nation-wide financial crises. Making sure that the managers actually act on behalf of the owners of the company – the stockholders – and pass on the profits to them are the key issues in corporate governance. . a history of managing agency system. Such financial crises have massive economic and social costs and can set a country several years back in its path to development. reduce legal costs and improve social and labor relationships and external economies like environmental protection.
in turn. The main challenge comes from the fact that such contracts are necessarily “incomplete”. Even if this power pattern held in reality. no contract can be written between representatives of shareholders and the management that specifies the right course of action in every situation. Consequently. Thus mangers are the agents of shareholders and function with the objective of maximizing shareholders’ wealth. They elect a Board of Directors to monitor the running of the company on their behalf. Central issues in Corporate Governance The basic power structure of the joint-stock company form of business. is as follows. it would still be a challenge for the Board to effectively monitor management. The numerous shareholders who contribute to the capital of the company are the actual owners of business. 9 The list of possible situations is infinitely long. appoints a team of managers who actually handle the day-to-day functioning of the company and report periodically to the Board.2. The central issue is the nature of the contract between shareholder representatives and managers telling the latter what to do with the funds contributed by the former. some “residual powers” over the funds of the . Because of this “incomplete contracts” situation. in principle. so that the management can be held for violation of such a contract in the event it does something else under the circumstances. It is not possible for the Board to fully instruct management on the desired course of action under every possible business situation. The Board.
managers wield an enormous amount of power in joint-stock companies and the common shareholder has very little say in the way his or her money is used in the company. The underlying premise is that shareholders dissatisfied with a particular management would simply dispose of their shares in the . The efficient limits to these powers constitute much of the subject of corporate governance. Clearly the former does not have the expertise or the inclination to run the business in the situations unspecified in the contract.company must be vested with either the financiers or the management. In real life. The reality is even more complicated and biased in favor of management. Even those that attend the meeting find it difficult to have a say in the selection of directors as only the management gets to propose a slate of directors for voting. The inefficacy of the Board of Directors in monitoring the activities of management is particularly marked in the Anglo-Saxon corporate structure where real monitoring is expected to come from financial markets. Often the CEO himself is the Chairman of the Board of Directors as well. can potentially use corporate resources to further their own self. Most shareholders do not care to attend the General Meetings to elect or change the Board of Directors and often grant their “proxies” to the management.interests rather than the interests of the shareholders. the Managing Director in British-style organizations ) functions with negligible accountability. the manager (the CEO in the American setting. In companies with highly dispersed ownership. On his part the CEO frequently packs the board with his friends and allies who rarely differ with him. so these residual powers must go to management. Consequently the supervisory role of the Board is often severely compromised and the management. who really has the keys to the business.
company. It is thus the fear of a takeover rather than shareholder action that is supposed to keep the management honest and on its toes. This mechanism. these features do not exist in developing countries like India. An alternative corporate governance model is that provided by the bank-based economies like Germany where the main bank(“House bank” in Germany) lending to the company exerts considerable influence and carries out continuous project-level supervision of the management and the supervisory board has representatives of multiple stakeholders of the firm. presupposes the existence of a deep and liquid stock market with considerable informational efficiency as well as a legal and financial system conducive to M&A activity. however. . the company would become takeover target. Box 1 gives a brief comparison of the two systems. If and when the acquisition actually happens. More often than not. As this would drive down the share price. the acquiring company would get rid of the existing management.
The legal environment encompasses two important aspects – the protection offered in the laws (de jure protection) and to what extent the laws are enforced in real life (de facto protection).3. Legal environment. Both these aspects play important roles in determining the nature of corporate governance in the country in question. Recent research has forcefully connected the origins of the legal system of a country to the very structure of its financial and economic architecture arguing that the . ownership patterns and Corporate Governance The legal system of a country plays a crucial role in creating an effective corporate governed mechanism in a country and protecting the rights of investors and creditors.

Researchers have used two indices for all these countries – a shareholder rights index ranging from 0 (lowest) to 6 (highest) and a rule of law index ranging 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest) – to measure the effective protection of shareholder rights provided in the different countries studied. The English common law countries lead the four systems in the shareholder rights index with an average of 4 (out of a maximum possible 6) followed by Scandinavian origin countries with an average score of 3 with the French-origin and German-origin countries coming last with average scores of 2.

This particularly hurts the development of new firms and the small and medium enterprises (SMEs). most Asian countries are marked with concentrated stock ownership and a preponderance of family-controlled businesses while state-controlled enterprises form an important segment of the corporate sector in many of these countries.

The effect of this concentrated ownership by management in Asian countries is not straightforward. family run companies with lower control by the family perform better than those with higher control.

The situation grew from bad to worse in the following decades and corruption. This section draws heavily from the history of Indian corporate governance in the beginning of corporate developments in India were marked by the managing agency system that contributed to the birth of dispersed equity ownership but also gave rise to the practice of management enjoying control rights disproportionately greater than their stock ownership. India emerged far better endowed than most other colonies.24 In terms of corporate laws and financial system. therefore. Along with the government owned mutual fund.lending norms and recovery procedures. In this respect. the Unit Trust of India. The turn towards socialism in the decades after independence marked by the 1951 Industries (Development and Regulation) Act as well as the 1956 Induction Policy Resolution put in place a regime and culture of licensing. they also held large blocks of sha res in the companies they lent to and invariably had representations in their boards.
Protection of creditors’ rights has therefore existed only on paper in India. Between 1987 and 1992 BIFR took well over two years on an average to reach a decision. Their nominee directors routinely served as rubber-stamps of the management of the day. Frequently they bled the company with impunity. they were themselves evaluated on the quantity rather than quality of their lending and thus had little incentive for either proper credit appraisal or effective follow-up and monitoring. by which time the assets of the company are practically worthless. Borrowers therefore routinely recouped their investment in a short period and then had little incentive to either repay the loans or run the business. promoters of businesses in India could actually enjoy managerial control with very little equity investment of their own. Very few companies have emerged successfully from the BIFR and even for those that needed to be liquidated. siphoning off funds with the DFI nominee directors mute spectators in their boards. Unfortunately. This sordid but increasingly familiar process usually continued till the company’s net worth was completely eroded. flush with depositors’ funds routinely decide .

As soon as a company is registered with the BIFR it wins immediate protection from the creditors’ claims for at least four years. This stage would come after the company has defaulted on its loan obligations for a while.
to lend only to blue chip companies and park their funds in government securities. Boards of directors have been largely ineffective in India in monitoring the actions of management. Consequently. For most of the post-Independence era the Indian equity markets were not liquid or sophisticated enough to exert effective control over the companies. They are routinely packed with friends and allies of the promoters and managers. who could and should have played a particularly important role. Financial disclosure norms in India have traditionally been superior to most Asian countries though fell short of those in the USA and other advanced countries. Sometimes non-voting preferential shares have been used by promoters to channel funds and deprive minority shareholders of their dues. The Institute of Chartered Accountants in India has not been known to take action against erring auditors. in reality minority shareholders have often suffered from irregularities in share transfers and registrations – deliberate or unintentional. the boards of directors have largely functioned as rubber stamps of the management. While the Companies Act provides clear instructions for maintaining and updating share registers. Listing . have usually been incompetent or unwilling to step up to the act. Minority shareholders have sometimes been defrauded by the management undertaking clandestine side deals with the acquirers in the relatively scarce event of corporate takeovers and mergers. in flagrant violation of the spirit of corporate law. The nominee directors from the DFIs. Noncompliance with disclosure norms and even the failure of auditor’s reports to conform to the law attract nominal fines with hardly any punitive action.
All in all therefore. minority shareholders and creditors in India remained effectively unprotected in spite of a plethora of laws in the books. however. One of the first among such endeavors was the CII Code for Desirable Corporate Governance developed by a committee chaired by Rahul Bajaj. it has played a crucial role in establishing the basic minimum ground rules of corporate conduct in the country. These concerns about corporate governance stemming from the corporate scandals as well as opening up to the forces of competition and globalization gave rise to several investigations into the ways to fix the corporate governance situation in India. Perhaps the single most important development in the field of corporate governance and investor protection in India has been the establishment of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in 1992 and its gradual empowerment since then. largely triggered by a spate of crises in the early 90’s – the Hashed Mehta stock market scam of 1992 followed by incidents of companies allotting preferential shares to their promoters at deeply discounted prices as well as those of companies simply disappearing with investors’ money. The committee was . 5 Changes since liberalization The years since liberalization have witnessed wide-ranging changes in both laws and regulations driving corporate governance as well as general consciousness about it.requirements of exchanges enforced some transparency. but non-compliance was neither rare nor acted upon. Concerns about corporate governance in India were. Established primarily to regulate and monitor stock trading.

An outline Provided by the CII was given concrete shape in the Birla Committee report of SEBI. Later SEBI constituted two committees to look into the issue of corporate governance – the first chaired by Kumar Mangle Birla that submitted its report in early 2000 and the second by Narayana Murthy three years later.

bank failure owing to unethical or incompetent management action poses a threat not just to the shareholders but to the depositing public and the economy at large. Two main features set banks apart from other business – the level of opaqueness in their functioning and the relatively greater role of government and regulatory agencies in their activities. Besides in the area of corporate governance.subject of share transfers which is the Achilles’ heel of shareholders’ right in India. much more difficult for the owners to effectively monitor . The very nature of the business makes it extremely easy and tempting for management to alter the risk profile of banks as well as siphon off funds. Given the pivotal role that banks play in the financial and economic system of a developing country. It is. Clearly much more needs to be accomplished in the area of compliance. the spirit of the laws and principles is much more important than the letter. Consequently. Figure 1 shows the frequency of compliance of companies to the different aspects of the corporate governance regulation. developing a positive culture and atmosphere of corporate governance is essential is obtaining the desired goals. The opaqueness in banking creates considerable information asymmetries between the “insiders” – management – and “outsiders” – owners and creditors.

Along with these changes. market institutions have been strengthened by government with attempts to infuse greater transparency and liquidity in markets for government securities and other asset markets.

Competition has been encouraged with the issue of licenses to new private banks and more power and flexibility have been granted to the bank management both in directing credit as well as in setting prices. The RBI has moved to a model of governance by prudential norms rather from that of direct interference. It is partly for these reasons that prudential norms of banking and close monitoring by the central bank of commercial bank activities are essential for smooth functioning of the banking sector. the possibility of corruption and diversion of credit of Political purposes which may.

Nominee directors – from government as well as RBIs – are being gradually phased off with a stress on Boards being more often elected than “appointed from above”.since 1995. However. The need for professional advice in the election of executive directors is increasingly realized. It is generally believed that the “new” private banks have better and more professional corporate governance systems in place. Corporate governance in co-operative banks and NBFCs perhaps need the greatest attention from regulators. Rural co-operative banks are frequently run by politically powerful families as their personal fiefdoms with little professional involvement and considerable channeling of credit to family businesses. Rules like no lending to companies who have one or more of a bank’s directors on their boards are being softened or removed altogether. concentrated ownership remains a widespread characteristic. . the recent collapse of the Global Trust Bank has seriously challenged that view and spurred serious thinking on. Greater independence of public sector banks has also been a key feature of the reforms. limiting the possibilities of professional l excellence and opening the possibility of misdirecting credit. properly manage the banks within the broad prudential norms set by RBI. As for old private banks. There is increasing emphasis on greater professional representation on bank boards with the expectation that the boards will have the authority and competence to Reddy (2002) summarizes the reforms -era policies for corporate governance in Indian banks.
