NLUO’s GIAN Credit Course on Corporate Governance in India


This course is intended to provide an understanding of the specific governance issues involved in Indian companies. It examines the peculiarities such as the concentrated ownership structures where business families or the state tend to exercise significant control.

A study of India (and a comparison with other Asian jurisdictions) also provides an elegant framework to analyze the influence of legal regimes in business and finance generally and in corporate governance specifically. This course examines various aspects of corporate governance in India along with a comparative perspective.

Although India’s corporate governance mechanisms have been extensively transplanted from developed markets such as the US and the UK, there are specific factors in India that raise questions regarding the efficacy of such transplantation.
