“It is very rare for shareholders of Indian companies to call for replacement of managing directors, that too the promoter, said Shriram Subramanian, managing director, InGovern Research Services, which advises institutional investors on voting strategies on specific resolutions. ”
“In corporate India, we hope that institutional investors -mutual funds, insurance companies, commercial banks – take cognisance of this provision in the Companies Act and place a resolution for changes in management, even removal of promoter directors, of errant companies. This will go along way in enhancing activism,” said Subramanian.
