The HRD ministry has rejected a panel of three names that included HDFC chairman Deepak Parekh to head the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) and sought a fresh list of candidates.
A three-member search committee, headed by former IIM-A chairman and L&T CMD Anil Naik,
had recommended R Seshasayee, chairman of the Board of Directors of Infosys, CMD of Hero MotoCorp Pawan Munjal besides Parekh, according to official sources.
These names were forwarded to the Human Resource Development(HRD) ministry by the IIM-A administration for consideration, they said. The ministry has rejected the names seeking for the new ones, the sources said without elaborating.
