ROLE OF INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR IN CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
This article aimed to identify the different concepts of IDs in corporate governance. The term “corporate governance” refers to the structure for managing and overseeing a company. “ID” refers to board members who are not directly affiliated with the company or its administration. In addition to balancing the board’s authority with that of senior management, IDs are brought in to ensure that all board decisions are made from a fair and balanced vantage point. Particularly in publicly traded companies with ownership and control being kept separate, where IDs play a crucial role in corporate administration. In the backdrop of high-profile corporate scandals, the role and effectiveness of IDs in corporate governance have come under scrutiny in recent years. This research paper talks about the function of the ID in the context of corporate governance and its role, legal responsibility, and liabilities. The paper also discusses the challenges faced by IDs in carrying out their duties, such as the potential for conflict with other board members or the need to balance their obligations to different stakeholders, with a comparative analysis between IDs and Executive directors. Additionally, the abstract highlights the benefits that IDs bring to an organization, including increased transparency and accountability, improved decision-making, and enhanced investor confidence.
