Relatively little is known about the corporate governance practice of firms in emerging markets. We provide a detailed overview of the practices of publicly traded firms in India, and identify areas where governance practices are relatively strong or weak. We also find cross-sectional evidence of a positive relationship between firm market value and an overall governance index, as well as a subindex covering shareholder rights. The association is stronger for more profitable firms and firms with stronger growth opportunities.
