In­fosys Board is a Big Let­down

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -

The ac­count­abil­ity for the board lieswith­thechair­man.Thatiswhy we have said that the chair­man should be re­placed. I think the same things they have been say­ing for long have been said in bet­ter English in the press con­fer­ence. Noth­ing has been ad­dressed.

We don’t know what has hap­pened. Any pro­fes­sional board will take the peo­ple who were in­volved in those de­ci­sions out of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and give it to a new set of peo­ple, who can in­de­pen­dently re­view this and come with a con­clu­sion. The board knew about all of this and these al­le­ga­tions are in the pub­lic. It is bet­ter for the chair­man to step down and get a new in­terim chair­man who was not part of the de­ci­sion at the time — maybe (DN) Prahlad — be­cause Prahlad was not part of these de­ci­sions at the time and let him do a proper, in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Let him do a foren­sic au­dit and put ev­ery­thing in the pub­lic do­main and close it once and for all.

This go­ing on for long in the pub­lic do­main is not good for the com­pany. This board is a big let­down. They are living in an ivory tower. They want to close their eyes and think ev­ery­thing is hunky­dory. (As­toldto Jochelle Men­donca)
