The proposal says that the professionals-staff ratio should be 3:1 for the first five years and then increase gradually.
The proposed move is in step with the framework of other regulatory bodies that are represented mostly by professionals. The proposal is part of a report submitted by the Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore) for modifying the organisational structure and the staffing pattern of the CCI.
The report has also recommended increasing the staff strength of the commission as well as outsourcing of all non-core and non-confidential activities.
Sources said the government was still considering the proposal and a decision would be taken once the final report was submitted. The proposal, if approved, would lend more teeth to the body and strengthen its decision-making capabilities, the sources pointed out.

At present, the commission is headed by a chairman and has six other full-time members. The amendment proposes that the chairman should be the chief justice of India or his nominee.
