Recognizing the important role that stock exchanges play in enhancing corporate governance (CG) standards, NSE has organized new initiatives relating to CG. To encourage best standards of CG among the Indian corporates and to keep them abreast of the emerging and existing issues, in December, 2012, NSE set up a Centre for Excellence in Corporate Governance (NSE CECG), which is an independent expert advisory body comprising eminent domain experts, academics and practitioners. The expert body discuss CG issues and development from time to time. The ‘Quarterly Briefing’, a note that offers an analysis of one emerging or existing CG issue, is a product emerging from these discussions.
