The ministry has scrapped the existing procedure for nominating the chairman of the board of governors and the director for the IIMs. The two notifications sent by the ministry to all the IIMs on March 2 and March 15 are the first step to tightening the government’s grip on the IIMs.

Notification F.No.F.7-7/2001-TS.V-(1) states that since certain bottlenecks were noted in the existing procedure, the board chairman would now be chosen by the government. Till now, the chairman was nominated by the government from among names recommended by the board of the respective IIMs. The board had the liberty to suggest another candidate if the one suggested by it was not approved by the government. This entire process has now been done away with.
