Guidelines on Performance Evaluation of Board of Directors
The performance evaluation of board plays a very important role in gauging the contribution of individual board members and overall board towards meeting the strategic goals of a financial institution. To keep pace with the ever changing business environment and to align our regulatory regime with best international practices, “Guidelines on Performance Evaluation of Board of Directors” have been developed.
2. These guidelines are meant to facilitate the Board of Directors to carry out their performance evaluation including individual board members and committees. The guidelines provide basic mechanism, techniques and approaches to be incorporated in performance evaluation model of each bank/DFI.

4. The chairman of the Board of Directors shall be responsible for the implementation of these guidelines with immediate effect.
