"This was one of those few companies in India that supposedly had been doing things the right way - that is, the Western way. It allegedly had all the checks and balances a U.S. company would want in an overseas business partner. Its financial statements received repeated clean bills of health from a respected outside auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers. And still its corporate governance rotted away from the inside."1

- Matt Kelly, Editor-in-Chief, Compliance Week2, in January 2009.

"The idea of corporate governance has not sunk in as much as it should. Certainly we have dynamic, modern companies in which it has but in many family-owned businesses it has not. We need truly independent directors and auditors."3

- T K Bhaumik, Chief Economic Adviser, JK Organization4, in January 2009.

"Satyam board acted to the best of the knowledge they had and what they thought was the best for the company. So I don't think there was any violation of any corporate governance spirit or the law. The board acted in good faith."5

- M Rammohan Rao, Former Independent Director in Satyam Board, in December 2008.


On January 08, 2009, M. Rammohan Rao (Rao), resigned as the Dean of the Indian School of Business (ISB)6.
