Hon'ble Chairman

Manish Sisodia is the Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister of Delhi. Additionally, he also holds the Finance & Planning, PWD, Labour, Land & Building, Vigilance, Services, Tourism and Art, Culture & Language portfolios.

During his tenure as Education Minister, a significant transformation has taken place in the infrastructure and quality of education provided by Delhi government schools. Mr. Sisodia doubled the budgetary allocation to Education which is now constant at almost 25% of the entire state budget. This was a historic step and has since been followed by the launch of a full-fledged reform process in public education. Sisodia has gained a reputation around the country as one of the best education administrators and educationists in government.

In 2019, he has candidly given a detailed account of this journey as Education Ministry in his book "Shiksha ― My Experiments as an Education Minister". It is Mr. Sisodia’s vision that has resulted in path breaking innovations such as the Mentor Teacher Programme, Mission Buniyaad, Happiness Curriculum and the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum. More recently, he has been the driving force behind initiatives such as ‘Desh Ke Mentor’ & ‘Business Blasters’.

For his phenomenal work in improving the government education system in Delhi, he has been awarded 'Finest Education Minister' in 2017, 'Champions of Change Award' in 2019 and the ‘Mahatma Award’ in 2021. He has been an esteemed speaker at global education forums for education ministers such as Global Education Conference in Moscow in 2018, RewirEd Summit 2022 in Dubai and most recently at the Education World Forum in London in 2022.

Prior to his political career, Mr. Sisodia was one of India’s foremost Right to Information (RTI) activists having co-founded the non-profit Kabir and had a successful career in journalism spanning a decade.
