While the Pragya Education and Environment Trust exercises the overall control over the Centre and manages its funds, the programmes and activities of the Centre are guided and administered by a Management Board comprising of, at present, the Founder Director, a Principal Director, and a nominee of the Trust.  The Centre’s functions and activities are also guided by an International Advisory Board which plays an advisory role mostly through correspondence. All members of the Advisory Board function in purely honorary capacity. The Trust, in consultation with the Management Board, appoints full time/ part-time staff for the Centre as and when needed, subject to availability of adequate resources for the purpose through specific projects.
