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.

- We need to use the Brand Equity of IIMs and take them to - Singapore, Dubai,Australia
- Independence in attracting academic talent, therefore flexibility in salary slab to fix
- Renewed focus on doctoral program, as we need more researchers and academic talent
- On Fellow program of Management converting to Phd.
- This is not an issue restricted to IIM
Many other institutes of repute (MDI Gurgaon, XLRI, IRMA) are running FPM programme need comprehensive policy to govern those too.

I didn't find time to go through the bill. But basic objective should be -
- There should be balancing situation between Govt executive and IIMs.
- This draft should not impact the working culture of IIMs which may demotivate them.
- Absolute autonomy can not be allowed to anyone in democracy. It is harmful in long run.
- IIMs must be held liable to follow Govt orders to align itself with our democratic system.
- Any malpractices, if exists, must be put down objectively using this bill.

It is astonishing that Harvard Business Schools charges only about 1.3 times the US per capita GDP from its MBA students. While the course fees at India’s top IIMs is about 20 (twenty) times of India's per capita GDP. This needs an immediate correction for the benefits of citizens of this country, Availability of loans is no justification for charging such huge fees as the burden of paying the loan remains with the students and their families.

To make Indian Management Education truly world class and compete with China and other countries we need ensure that the new IIM Bill (i) gives autonomy to the top IIMs based on their National, Asian and Global rankings and the fact taht they no longer receive Government grants anyway (ii) demand greater performance from them, not through more rules and controls but by monitoring tangible results.

Good move. The new arrangement must ensure IIMs work as center for enterpenural research and learnings are desipated across the nation.

Providing statutory status is a good move for the premiere institution but at the same time are concerns regarding loss of autonomous nature of these institutions and more government control on it…… these concerns should be adequately addessed

Dear Prime Minister,
Upgrading the IIM is a really good initiatuve and we are proud to have educational inatitutions of such a high caliber in our country. However we must be honest in facing few facts 1. In India there are many universities which are old and lack basic mechanism to function. If we can help them become better it will be more beneficial to students at large 2.We must realise that IIM passouts owe this country a moral reaponsibilty to rebuild India.This should be realized.JaiHind
