Abstract: Disclosure is an accounting activity which holds great significance in the era of modern economic growth where the availability of capital is the major driving force. The economic information therefore should be available in the most efficient manner to aid well- informed decision making process. Therefore this paper intends to extend various aspects of corporate disclosure practices, mainly voluntary disclosures of selected Indian companies. The study found significant variation in total disclosures year-wise but not industry-wise. Nevertheless, one thing is for sure that though the extent of disclosures has improved and has become consistent post 2013 but the international reports reviewed in this study still expect more to be done.
