**National Foundation of Corporate Governance**
"Corporate governance is maximizing the shareholder value in a corporation while ensuring fairness to all stakeholders, customers, employees, investors, vendors, the government and the society-at-large. Corporate governance is about transparency and raising the trust and confidence of stakeholders in the way the company is run. It is about owners and the managers operating as the trustees on behalf of every shareholder - large or small." - Shri N.R. Narayana Murthy, Chief Mentor, Infosys Limited.
With the goal of promoting better corporate governance practices in India, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, on 1st October 2003 set up National Foundation for Corporate Governance (NFCG) in partnership with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) and Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI).
