Former Chief Executive Officer of Procter & Gamble India Gurcharan Das is among the three persons likely to be appointed as independent directors of the Air India board.

Official sources said the Government was also considering appointing management guru Ram Charan and renowned academician Prem Vrat as independent directors in the State-run airline.

Sources indicated that it could take up to two months before the three names get the Government nod.

The positions of three independent directors have been vacant since April 2011 after the current West Bengal Finance Minister Amit Mitra, Mahindra and Mahindra Chief Anand Mahindra quit. Yousuffali M.A., was the third independent director, who resigned in 2011.

Currently, former Chief of the Indian Air Force Fali Major and Chairman of Ambuja Realty Development, Harsh Neotia, are the only two independent directors on the board.
