IIM-Bangalore leadership crisis due to age limit issue

THE country’s top B school, the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore, is facing a leadership crisis despite the government approving the appointment of Boston University professor Sushil Vachani for the top job last year. Since Vachani is two years away from turning 65, his age has become a bone of contention. According to the rules, a government academic position can be held only till the age of 65. This means Vachani’s tenure as IIM-Bangalore director will be no longer than about two-and-a-half years, or half the actual term of an IIM director — five years.
