Heightened Interest in Corporate Governance But Challenges Still Remain:Indian CFOs

BY Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 13th September:- Today, Corporate Governance is an inevitable part of discussion in corporate boardrooms, academic roundtables, and for policy makers worldwide. With the passing of the ‘Bankruptcy and Insolvency Code’ this year, there is a heightened interest in corporate governance and its impact on India Inc.  To understand the emerging trends and key governance challenges faced by organizations, ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) has unveiled a study on ‘India Inc.’s readiness on Corporate Governance’ at the first edition of the ‘ACCA Leaders Forum’ at Vishakhapatnam recently. The forum was organized by ACCA in association with CFO India.
The survey examined the corporate governance (CG) requirements in terms of clarity and completeness of content, degree of enforceability and prevalence. With responses from Chief Financial Officer (CFOs) across various sectors including healthcare, research, business services providers, infrastructure providers etc., it threw up some interesting insights:
Derek Sommerville, CFO, ACCA said that good governance will help companies develop a structure of oversight and gain corporate leadership to navigate periods of uncertainty. The research undertaken by ACCA highlights that the lack of awareness of the activity and the behavior lower down is really the root of many problems. Good governance is more than just addressing the malfeasance at the top level but it is about ensuring transparency throughout the organization.
He further added that the effectiveness of the board underpins good governance. There needs to be diversity and balanced skill sets, and obviously strong ethics and values, and independence in decision making. Remuneration must be properly controlled, and it must be given adequate visibility to all stakeholders. Risks and mitigation controls must be properly addressed and there should be transparent management of stakeholder relationships. Transparency in leadership is the key.

School Time for SAB TV’s YARO

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 13th September:- YARO is all set for a new experience to unfold. YARO who is now acquainted with his surroundings and human beings discovers that his friends Naitik and Popo go to school which makes him curious. He insists that his parents (Mr & Mrs Agarwal) enroll him in a school so that he can know more about it.
Giving into his plea Mr.Agarwal agrees to enroll him in a school. He enrolls him into the same class as Naitik and Popo and on the first day itself YARO gets himself into trouble. While playing with the kids he throws a paper plane in the air and it accidently lands on the head of a teacher.  The story takes a hilarious turn when YARO doesn’t relate to the concept of punishments and questions the teachers which annoys everyone at school.
While playing during the lunch break YARO’s battery starts to drop. He goes back to his class only to discover that his tiffin which had his charger has been stolen by someone. Soon his battery dies and he collapses and is taken home by the principal. Mr. Agarwal revives YARO and charges his battery. However, the fact that the secret about YARO will become public scares Mr. Agarwal (Rakesh Bedi) and he and Beena (Malini Kapoor) try to convince YARO to drop the idea of going to school. However, YARO is more determined now to go to school and find the person behind his tiffin going missing.
Aniruddh Dave who plays the Yaro said that YARO is an innocent lad who is discovering new things every day. When he sees kids going to school, he gets excited and enrolls in a school. The real fun starts when he annoys his teachers with his behavior and not understanding what is the concept of a punishment. It was a great experience for me to relive my childhood memories.
