The Board also decided to trim some of its sub-committees, dropped Indian Team Director Ravi Shastri from the IPL Governing Council and axed Roger Binny from the selection panel to negate the perceived conflict of interest.
The decisions were taken at the Board's 86th Annual General Meeting in which former captain Sourav Ganguly was appointed Chairman of the Technical Committee, replacing Anil Kumble.
Besides, Visakhapatnam, Ranchi, Indore, Pune, Dharamsala and Rajkot were accorded the status of Test venues.
"Everybody in the meeting spoke in favor of a clean and transparent Board," BCCI President Shashank Manohar told reporters after the meeting.
Justice (Retd) AP Shah was named the ombudsman who will now deal with any complaints of conflict of interest.
"Principally, we have decided on issues regarding conflict of interest. The detailing would be done by legal committee in two months' time," Shashank added.
"The Ombudsman appointed by Board is Justice A P Shah who would look into complaints of conflict of interest. The Board has also decided to have people who are professionals. The accounts were passed and the entire AGM report is already on the website," Manohar said detailing the decisions taken at the AGM.
Gagan Khoda and MSK Prasad were named the new members in the selection committee, replacing Rajinder Singh Hans and Binny.

Besides, the BCCI decided to retain Rajeev Shukla as the Chairman of the IPL Governing Council which would comprise Jyotiraditya Scindia, M P Pandove, Ajay Shirke and Sourav Ganguly.
