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.

My name is A. Rajagopal. I am deeply disturbed by this bill. I am a graduate from IIM Ahmedabad 1977 batch. The current bill as it stands will kill everything that made IIMs ( and IITs) internationally renowned institutions. Suggest this must be scrapped and a new bill with limited goal of financial transparency only without ANY operational interference by Govt. Please see attached for more detailed comments #IIM, # MyGOV #IIMBILL2015

When do we try to bring about some policy change .As per my understanding is concerned when we find some issues.When IIM'S are not falling in this category then why such a big change needs to be set in of making them a statutory body.I think giving out their autonomy will dilute its effeciency .

Let it function the way its functioning .Try reviving those institutes which need revival not the alived ones.

Hi Sir, My self Ashish Kakkar thanks to you for Man Ki Baat program I want you to raise some hard issues also like

1. Conman Civil Code with reference to Muslim woman not got rights what other have
2. Reservation with reference to one category of people getting benefit of reservation and there kids also. We must stop A and B category Govt. employees kids to get benefit of reservation and allow more to get the benefit.

I think people of Indian society must discuss on harder issues also

Thanks for your efforts to reduce black money. To reduce burecratic corruption, please reduce 30% income tax to employees which is higher thatn corproate sectorr. More money in High Middle class reduce corruption increase purchase power. It will help production and employment. Implement Chellaiah committee or Pune Economic Forum suggestions. Bring income tax to exmployees from 30%. Middle class have a hope of ray in you. Instead of tax concession reduce income tax to employees.

At the overall level
• Ensure the autonomy of the institutions.
• Avoid faceless nameless bureaucrats trying to remote control such institutions of higher education and excellence from Delhi.
• Same time, have clear measures of accountability and hold the IIMs to them. Likewise, specify the accountability of the "Central Government" and name the officials responsible

The IIMs have been around for over half a century. Their graduates have found acclaim globally and in India, and are today CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, Captains of Industry, Chief Secretaries of GOI, founders of top NGOs etc. Every year, at campus placement time, hundreds of leading organizations queue up at these campuses. Lakhs of students apply each year. No one asks or questions whether PGDM is a degree. If things are going fine, why try to fix something? Autonomy is being curbed.See PDF

Intent of this bill looks good on the surface, hoping it does not have any clause for ceasing the autonomy of the IIMs. Currently IIMs have been doing an excellent work. One request will be to add another provision in which backward students be given advantage in IIMs in terms of fee and not seats. This fee amount thus discounted for the backward students can be compensated from the "General" category students. Advantage if restricted to fee, instead of seats will have a greater acceptability.
