Ahmedabad, May 29: The HRD ministry has rejected a list of mes forwarded by Indian Institute of Magement - Ahmedabad (IIM-A) magement for its chairman’s post and sought a fresh list of candidates, sources said on Sunday. The rejected list included the mes of Infosys Board of Directors chairman R. Seshasayee, HDFC chairman Deepak Parekh and Hero MotoCorp CMD Pawan Munjal. It was forwarded by a three-member search committee — headed by Larsen & Toubro chairman and maging director Anil ik, himself a former IIM-A chairman — to the human resource development (HRD) ministry. While the IIM-A’s official statement refused to comment on the issue, the sources said the mes were rejected as no government representative was present during the meetings of the search committee that drew up the list in March. The IIM-A’s 15-member board of governors has two representatives of the Centre and one of the state government but none of the three was present during the meetings that decided the list. The list was filised by consensus but the ministry took the stand that the formal procedure was not followed in the case. According to a Memorandum of Association between the IIM-A and the ministry, the latter picks a me from the search committee’s recommended candidates. (IANS)
