The National Advisory Council (NAC) chairpersonship is not among the exempted posts in the amended Bill being brought by the government to end the office-of-profit issue.

It is not in the exempted category so far, government sources said adding it was a conscious decision not to keep the post in the exempted category with a view to avoid any opposition criticism in the matter.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi had been the NAC chairperson, a post from which she resigned on March 23 along with her Lok Sabha seat in the wake of the office-of-profit controversy.

The sources said right now the thinking is that no MP should head the NAC.
