The nominations would be sought by public advertisement appealing prominent academicians, persons of repute to recommend names of persons who have background in financial, administration or persons of exemplary administrative acumen or alumni of the institutions or persons of repute who have been associated with premier institutions of higher education, Education Minister Manish Sisodia said.

"Till now government used to appoint five persons of its choice in these governing bodies without properly checking their background and their contributions. It created discretion and there was no transparency," Sisodia alleged.

So, the government will write to heads of premier institutions of the country, like IITs and IIMs urging them to nominate people who can contribute to the better management of educational institutions located in Delhi so that they emerge as centre of excellence in times to come, he further said.
