The proposed IIM Bill 2015 proposes to grant statutory status to thirteen existing Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) at Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Indore, Kozhikode, Shillong, Raipur, Ranchi, Rohtak, Kashipur, Tiruchirapalli and Udaipur, and declare them as Institutions of National Importance, to enable them to grant degrees to their students in the academic courses conducted by these institutes. Till now, these Institutions could award only certificate, Post Graduate Diploma and Fellow Programme in Management Certificate, which lacked universal acceptability in the field of academia and research. The Post-graduate Diploma in Management Programme was relatively unaffected by absence of a formal degree, both in terms of recruitment of students as well as suitable placements in job market but the Fellow Programme in Management did not get the same status as that of a Ph.D. in the job market, especially in faculty appointments. As a result, the Fellow Programme in Management (equivalent to Ph.D), without the formal degree stamp, has not, been able to attract talented students, required to develop a strong research base in the country in the field of management education and also address the faculty shortages affecting the management institutions in the country. The proposed Bill will address this gap.

The stated objective of the bill is to declare IIMS as institutes of national importance.However, a detailed reading of the sections leave an impression that the government is keen to increase its interventionist role rather than be a facilitator in pursuit of excellence. IIMs can be grouped into Mature [A,B,C], Evolving [I,L,K] and Nascent [the rest]. Bill fails to recognize and develop a policy framework to improve the operational autonomy.Sections 7(i),17(2),21(1&2),30,31,&36 are retrogressiv

A few stray incidents may have possibly led to such a move but such aberrations will get corrected by a watchful student community & market forces, especially in these days of viral social media.

1. Have periodic high level reviews of the Board by a committee of eminent, non-political persons
2. Fix the fees thru' a pan-IIM body with student & Govt. representation
3. Standardize the degrees with peer, International Institutes

Barring the above, please leave the IIM's alone !.

In India every sphere of life is regulated and in a democracy the Government represents the will of the people. IIMs cannot resist regulating their business on the pretext of autonomy. There cannot be any autonomy without accountability. The standards of accountability can be fixed only by law. If the PGP/FPM programs need recognition in par with that of post-graduate degrees and doctoral degrees respectively, IIMs must follow strict rules. Excellence can be achieved by compliance.

Hi , I am a PGP from IIMA. My views are as attached.
In short give complete autonomy to these schools of excellence but make them also equally accountable and responsible to the people of our country and the rest of the world.

Sir, IIM should not run for the profit making. When entire funding is done by GOI then it's fee structure should be reduced substantially . IIMs are charging very heptic fee on the basis of autonomy and in last one decade have increased from below 1 lakh to 9-10 lakhs which is out of reach of affording even for most of the parents.
