Industry, IIM members opposes govts control plan

The industry, academia and the society members of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A), have discarded government proposal that seeks greater control over all the 13 IIMs across India.

 

The industry, academia and the society members of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A), have discarded government proposal that seeks greater control over all the 13 IIMs across India.

While government has revived its plans to create the controversial umbrella council for the IIMs, a book on IIM-A has recorded several instances in which the institute's wings were clipped because of control issues by HRD ministry.

 

IIM-A alumnus and managing director of Sintex Industries S B Dangayach said, "The moment a filter comes in, in the form of councils, it causes a lot of interference by the government. Independent IIMs cannot be measured by the same yardsticks as the freshly minted ones,."

 

Right from rejecting a proposal to set up an IIM-A campus in Mumbai to restraining the director from traveling abroad to attend international conferences, the book highlights several issues of governance at the premier management institute. Eminent personalities like Infosys founder and former chairman, board of governors at IIM-A, Narayana Murthy, chairman of Ahmedabad University and IIM-A Society member Prafull Anubhai have contributed to the book 'Nurturing Institutional Excellence: Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad' by IIM-A alumni dean Vijaya Sherry Chand and visiting faculty T V Rao.

 

"The HRD Ministry had stipulated that the director needed permission from the ministry every time he had to travel abroad. The permission was not easy to get and invariably came at the last minute. The directors of the IIMs were restrained from travelling abroad by this rule for over three decades. As a result, the country has been the biggest loser," writes Murthy in the book.

 

Nayan Parikh, president, alumni association, Gujarat, said, "IIM-A's predominance will remain irrespective of a council. The institute will always remain first among equals. In fact, the institute will excel even within the council, without letting its autonomy diminish within that framework."
