Independent Directors serve as an important Institution of corporate governance contributing significantly at the boards by bringing a diverse set of skills with an independent judgement on the significant issues. Independent Directors need to act as the custodians of good governance by discharging monitoring and advisory role effectively. They need to act in the interest of the company and the interest of all stakeholders.
