Board Evaluation

India has moved recently from a voluntary Board evaluation under Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement (SEBI) and Corporate Governance Voluntary Guidelines of MCA (2009) to a mandatory Board Evaluation under Companies Act, 2013 and SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015 (SEBI LODR).

As per the Narayan Murthy Committee Report, it is necessary to have a robust process in place for Board evaluation. It is also necessary to ensure continuity of top leadership, including CEO succession planning.
