The Effect of Corporate Governance Structure
on the Performance of Companies Listed in India

--Shweta Mehrotra and Birajit Mohanty

Corporate governance research has increased dramatically, especially during the past few decades, becoming a burning issue amongst academics, practitioners and policy makers. This increasing interest is driven by a growing string of business scandals worldwide, lack of and ineffective monitoring mechanisms and governance practices, and failure of board of directors. The emerging literature shows a linkage between corporate governance and performance of only large listed companies. In this study, an effort has been made to investigate the nature of corporate governance structure and its contribution to the determination of performance of large cap and mid-cap companies listed in India. A total 100 companies, i.e., top 50 large cap companies and top 50 mid-cap companies, were considered. The data was analyzed separately for both large cap and mid-cap companies by using multiple regression models to identify the variables that affect company performance. The study found that there is significant effect of selected measures of corporate board structure on the performance of both large cap and mid-cap companies listed in India, except for board meeting in the case of large cap samples and gender diversity in the case of mid-cap samples.

Stakeholders’ Perspective on Electronic Initiatives in Corporate Governance

--J P Sharma, Sunaina Kanojia and Nidhi Kapoor

The urge to reduce information asymmetry has been accelerated in the recent past to create a transparent and robust corporate governance mechanism, wherein electronic governance is a significant contributor. This study attempts to analyze the attitude of shareholders and Company Secretaries (CS) towards various aspects related to electronic governance and its impact on corporate governance. In order to understand the stakeholders’ perspectives, attitudes, and viewpoint, a questionnaire was framed and circulated amongst the shareholders and CS fraternity. t-test and ANOVA have been applied in order to test that perception about various electronic initiatives, and the impact of e-initiatives on better corporate governance is not statistically different on the basis of respondents’ demographics and participation in virtual meetings. Further, in order to determine if perception about the impact of e-initiatives on better corporate governance is dependent on respondents’ perception about various e-initiatives and demographic variables, multiple regression has been applied. Also, desirability for higher shareholder participation has been studied as the mediating variables using Sobel’s mediation test. The respondents demonstrated moderate to high agreeability for all the major variables that have been studied, implying that they are well aware about the need and positive implications of moving towards e-initiatives. Further, in regression analysis, the perception about virtual shareholder meetings, e-voting and electronic delivery of documents were found to be positively and significantly affecting the perception about impact of e-initiatives on better corporate governance. The perception about the desirability for higher shareholder participation was found to be significant partial mediator in the relationship of perception about e-initiatives (independent variable) and the perception about impact of e-initiatives on better corporate governance (dependent variable).

Corporate Social Responsibility: An Analytical Study

--V Visalakshi

The Founex Report emphasized that concern for the environment should not and need not detract from the commitment of the global community “Developing and more industrialized nations alike to the overriding task of development1”. The present paper through some relevant case laws addresses the potential negative impact on the society and the environment owing to the pollution caused by the corporate sector and the indifference of the government towards it. These case laws represent the real situation which demonstrates that there is an immense need of imbibing the feeling of being compassionate and accountable towards them.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
