Corporate governance is gaining centre stage in the recent times due to failure of corporate and wide dissatisfaction among the people with the way corporate works and hence became a widely discussed topic worldwide. Corporate Governance is now recognized as a paradigm for improving competitiveness and enhancing efficiency and thus improving investors’ confidence and accessing capital. Now corporate governance has become a more dynamic concept and a not a mere static one. Bank and Financial Institutions are the backbone of the economic sector of any country. The healthy economic condition of a nation is depicted through the sound functioning of its banks. Banks form a crucial link of a country’s economic sector hence they are universally regulated industry and their wellbeing is imperative for the economy.

Hence corporate governance is conceptually different for banks. If a corporate fails, the fall outs can be restricted to the stakeholders, but if a bank fails, the impact can spread rapidly through other banks with potentially serious consequences for the entire financial system and the macro economy.
