It is widely argued that effective corporate governance practices are fundamental to gain and maintain the confidence of the people on banking system (BCBS, 2006, February).

In Bangladesh, banks play a vibrant role to ensure sustainable economic growth (having more than six percent gross domestic product) in last few decades.
