RBI plays a leading role in formulating and implementing corporate governance norms for India’s banking sector. The ambit encompasses safeguarding and maximizing the shareholder’s value, upholding retail depositors risk and stabilizing the financial system to conserve the larger interests on public.
We have analysed financial information of banks which constitute 70% of total capital and reserves of the banking sector for a period of 5 years to examine whether RBI-prescribed corporate governance norms are effective. We conclude that RBI is an effective and efficient regulator of the banking sector and a good gatekeeper of corporate governance in the sector.
