As a follow up to the IIM Bill 2015, please find a message from the IIMA Alumni Office. Our apologies, in case you have already received this message from the Alumni office regarding the Outlook India poll.
At least 4 of the IIMs have formally written to the Ministry / Minister expressing their serious or deep reservations about the current form of the draft IIM bill that was put up in June 2015.
We are waiting to talk formally to the ministry.
Meanwhile, the media appears to have picked up the issue. There is a poll being conducted by Outlook magazine which is available at http://www.outlookindia.com/surveyvote.aspx?survey=89.
This poll will help gauge public opinion on the Bill.
Do spare some time and take a look.
It is important for citizens of India to know that quality in higher education comes from autonomy with accountability and micromanagement does not constitute autonomy. Our Director and Chairman have been quite candid on this score.
