IIM-Ahmedabad opposes umbrella body for IIMs

Ahmedabad, PTI, march 23, 2013

Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has opposed the proposed legislation to bring IIMs under one umbrella body, saying it would curtail its autonomy.

“The bill in parliament which proposes to have an umbrella type of body for IIMs...let us say facilitation which they (govt) say...we have as a society opposed it, the faculty has opposed and the Board of Governors have opposed,” Chairman IIM-A Board of Governor (BoG) A M Naik told newsmen.

The IIM-A Board of Governors, which met today ahead of the 48th convocation, opposed the government’s decision to bring IIMs under an overarching body on the lines of IIT Council.
“We have given our representation in writing..I think it will meet with some consideration..because the institutes which have been doing exceedingly well must be left alone..,” Naik said on the sidelines of the convocation held here.

The proposed legislation seeks to confer IIMs the status of institutes of national importance empowering them to award degrees instead of diplomas.
