The decision was taken at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence in a meeting attended by around 56 party lawmakers.
The party's highest decision making body, the Political Affairs Committee or PAC, met soon after and formally approved the decision.
"Sushil Gupta has made big contributions in the education and health sectors in Delhi and Haryana. He provides free education to 15,000 children. Narayan Das Gupta is the former president of the ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountant of India)," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
Kumar Vishwas, who was angling for a Rajya Sabha slot, did not attend the PAC meeting although he is a member of the committee.
The last date to file nominations for the three Rajya Sabha seats is January 5.
