N R Narayana Murthy, chairman and chief mentor of Infosys Technologies, is considered to have set new benchmarks in corporate governance through the firm he founded.
Last fortnight, he was chosen to head National Association of Software and Service Companies' sub-committee on corporate governance.
Excerpts from his conversation with Business Standard.
What is your agenda for the Nasscom committee on corporate governance that you are chairing?
The agenda for Nasscom's corporate governance and best practices committee is to bring together the best corporate governance practices that are necessary for the software services and BPO companies to operate harmoniously in this environment.
We will make a set of recommendations which will hopefully lead to better governance in the companies, and enhance the trust of various stakeholders in their management. However, these are only recommendations, they are not mandatory.
