By Matteo Tonello, Managing Director, Corporate Leadership at The Conference Board I am pleased to present Handbook on Corporate Governance in India: Legal Standards and Board Practices, the inaugural release of The Directors’ Collective. The Handbook is designed as a practical reference tool reviewing key features of the legal and regulatory standards applicable to today’s Indian corporate boards, from their composition to their activities. The material is organized by the variety of functions and responsibilities in the director's job description—the qualification and appointment process; fiduciaries’ liability and indemnification; the delegation of authority to board committees and the role and responsibilities of nomination, remuneration, and audit committees; the duty of overseeing an ethics and compliance program; and specific requirements pertaining to disclosure, related party transactions, risk management, and corporate social responsibility. Read our press release. The release of the Handbook marks the launch of The Directors' Collective, a new initiative that brings together the independent research and thought leadership of The Conference Board with the direct expertise that professional services firm KPMG, Russell Reynolds Associates, and Khaitan & Co. have developed while assisting Indian businesses.
