Management of these institutions would be Board driven, with the chairperson and director of an institution who will be selected by the Board, an official statement said.

A greater participation of experts and alumni in the Board is amongst other important features of the Bill. Provision has also been made for inclusion of women and members from Scheduled Castes/Tribes in the Board.

The Bill also provides for periodic review of the performance of institutions by independent agencies and placing the results of the same in public domain.
