About Ramalinga Raju
Ramalinga Raju born on 16th sep,1954 in a family of farmers In Bhimavaram town of Andhra Pradesh He was an average student in class He completed his (B. Com) degree in 1975 from Andhra Loyola College at Vijayawada Raju's father, was one of the first farmers to start commercial grape production in Hyderabad. The agribusiness' profits also went a long way in educating Ramalinga, the eldest son. He did his MBA from Ohio University, USA.

• The satyam scandal broke when INDIA was getting its 1st hard knocks from the global slowdown
Ø Raju confessed that Satyam's balance sheet of 30 September 2008 contained:
• • • • Inflated figures for cash and bank balances of INR 5,040 crore (as against INR 5,361 crore reflected in the books). An accrued interest of INR 376 crore which was non-existent. An understated liability of INR 1,230 crore on account of funds was arranged by himself. An overstated debtors' position of INR 490 crore (as against INR 2,651 crore in the books).

• • • • Corporate governance basically refers to a set of systems and subsystems by which a company is controlled and directed. Corporate governance appears to be ineffective in India in certain cases and it is no surprise when it comes to Satyam episode. The emphasis of corporate governance should be on economic efficiency, that is, creation and enhancement of value for shareholders. Hallmark of good corporate governance It is transparent and effective. It is able to prevent corporate crimes. It seeks to maximize the long run corporate value. It is ethical and socially responsible.
