AICTE, UGC and the IIPM issue

I have been closely following the recent developments related to IIPM, AICTE & UGC. IIPM (Indian Institute of Planning and Management) headed by Arindham Choudhary has 18 branches across India offering courses in Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA), Masters in Business Administration (MBA), Executive MBA and Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA).

The problem

First and foremost, IIPM is not approved by AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) nor by UGC (University Grants Commission). There maybe several MBA colleges / Business Schools which are also not approved by AICTE & recognized by UGC. The problem comes when somebody pinpoints in particular about only one Business School this has irked IIPM’s Dean Arindham Choudhary, UGC has been giving public notices stating that IIPM is not a University, and it cannot confer degrees. The efforts of UGC are appreciable but why not UGC take the same kind of care and give public notices about other business schools which are also not recognized. According to a list recently published by AICTE there are 327 Business Schools across India which are not approved by AICTE.

Choudhary says that both AICTE & UGC are organizations full of bribe seeking officials, indeed he was right in the past AICTE officials were caught seeking bribe. The same happened with UGC too earlier, having said all that; an year ago Careers360 carried out an investigation on IIPM and it’s courses. The investigations indicated serious flaws and the authenticity of the claims made by IIPM were put to light.

order-on-iipm-urlsRecently a court order (blocking-instruction-II-14-Feb-2013) has forced to censor 78 URLs which has defamatory information related to both Arindham Choudhary & IIPM. Among those URLs which are asked to be blocked, an UGC public notification regarding awareness on IIPM has also been instructed to block. Several articles from media houses too were ordered to be blocked, Department of Telecom to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) has received the instructions to block 78 URLs by a court in Gwalior.

The follow up, the AICTE chairman and the UGC officials are seeking legal support from their respective Lawyers to defend themselves from being called corrupt or bribe seeking. As far as IIPM is concerned, Choudhary said he is proud that IIPM is not associated with AICTE & UGC according to reports.

When we last checked the list of URLs which were ordered to be blocked most of them seemed to be working fine. The list of URLs which are asked to block are detailed on a report by MediaNama.

  1. IIPM conduct’s B. management program’s but its courses do not come under the purview of AIU, AICTE, UGC they have deep relations with controversies. It will be good if you find some other alternative or B-school to pursue your B. program’s.

  2. IIM Kolkata has revoke their fees and it’s approximately 18 lakh for 2 yrs courses this is very bad news for those aspirants who belongs from general category class families like me

  3. IIPM is a fake institute. During the 2011-12 overseas study tour sponsored by the college, four female student were sexually assaulted by fellow students by administering sleep-inducing drugs. The matter was hushed up by the college authorities. Please beware and save your child’s precious future.
