Dr. K Radhakrishnan, former chairperson of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and current chairman of the board of governors at IIT Kanpur, will lead the committee. Other members include Dr. Randeep Guleria, former director of AIIMS; Prof. BJ Rao, vice chancellor of Central University of Hyderabad; Prof. Ramamurthy K, Professor Emeritus at the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras; Pankaj Bansal, co-founder of People Strong and board member of Karmayogi Bharat; and Prof. Aditya Mittal, Dean of Student Affairs at IIT Delhi. Govind Jaiswal, joint secretary at the Ministry of Education, will serve as the member secretary.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Education, the panel will conduct a comprehensive analysis of the entire examination process and recommend measures to enhance the system's efficiency. It will review the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of the NTA and suggest ways to strengthen them, including the implementation of a monitoring mechanism to ensure compliance at every level. The panel will also recommend improvements in data security protocols by evaluating the existing processes of the NTA.

Additionally, the committee will make recommendations on the organisational structure and functioning of the NTA, clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of its functionaries.
