Appropriate powers and responsibilities have been delegated and guidelines laid down for constitution, attendance and quorum, powers and duties of the Committees. The Committees constitute a balanced mix of independent and executive directors. In addition to circulating the minutes of the Committee meetings to the Board, the Chairman of each of the Committees also informs the Board about important issues discussed or any areas of concern that need to be brought to the attention of the Board.
