These amendments are a follow up to the decisions taken at the SEBI Board meeting held in March 2018, wherein it had accepted a number of recommendations of the Committee on Corporate Governance constituted by SEBI under the chairmanship of Uday Kotak (the Kotak Committee). The Kotak Committee was formed on 2 June 2017 with the aim to improve standards of corporate governance.
