Tirunellai Narayana Iyer Seshan, who died aged 86 in Chennai on 10 November 2019, is widely known and rightly remembered for the reforms he instituted and oversaw in our electoral system over the six years from December 1990 as the tenth Chief Election Commissioner of India. But, not known as much as they ought to be, particularly to the readers of this journal, are the innovations and reforms he brought about, instituted or chaperoned in the administration of the science or technology-driven departments and agencies of the central government that he served in.

Abstract


Tirunellai Narayana Iyer Seshan, who died aged 86 in Chennai on 10 November 2019, is widely known and rightly remembered for the reforms he instituted and oversaw in our electoral system over the six years from December 1990 as the tenth Chief Election Commissioner of India. But, not known as much as they ought to be, particularly to the readers of this journal, are the innovations and reforms he brought about, instituted or chaperoned in the administration of the science or technology-driven departments and agencies of the central government that he served in.
