AICTE declares IIPM as Fake University

IIPM has challenged AICTE in High Court of Delhi as AICTE on 30th June had scrapped IIPM as fake university operating without any credentials. Earlier too, IIPM has been involved in legal dispute with UGC. Noteworthy point is that IIPM has alleged that the AICTE had ulterior motives in issuing notice. Earlier UGC had put IIPM’s name in blacklisted universities which after legal battle has been removed now.

There were many irregularities in IIPM courses and it is not affiliated with any Indian institute. It is this reason why the AICTE did not recognize it. The IIPM says that it has collaboration with foreign universities, which AICTE does not recognize as it asks for affiliation with Indian universities. AICTE, working under its supervisory and regulatory authority, declared IIPM as a fake institution and asked it to shut its operation. The court after hearing the appeal of IIPM has asked AICTE to file the response before or on July 22 in this regard.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE) have clarified that the Indian Institute of Planning Management (IIPM) is in their list of “fake” universities.

The higher education authorities issued statements supporting a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) that was up for hearing at the Delhi High Court. The PIL was lodged to challenge the legality of degrees conferred by a foreign university.

Appearing for the petitioner Adv. AJ Bhambhani said that the IIPM could not grant degrees even through a foreign university, since it was declared ‘fake’.

Several notices were issued to the institution asking them not to use the names of UGC, AICTE and the Ministry of Human Resources Development in its ads. Nevertheless, the advertisements have continued.

The counsel stated that the petitioner has received emails from IMI Belgium, the university IIPM claims affiliation with, stating that it is not associated with the IIPM. The UGC lawyer supported Bhambhani’s statements and contended that the IIPM could not function as a coaching institute and confer degrees from foreign universities.

New Delhi: Days after the University Grants Commission (UGC) stated that Arindam Chaudhari’s Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM), is not recognized by government or any of India’s higher education bodies, a PIL has challenged the legality of it “franchising” the education by way of conferring degrees through a foreign university.

The petition which came up for hearing on Wednesday was supported by the UGC and All India Council for Technical Institution (AICTE). Both made it clear that IIPM figured in their list of ‘fake’ universities. Also, several notices were issued to IIPM for advertising its courses using the name of UGC, AICTE and the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Taking a serious note of the PIL, a Division Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Manmohan said that educational institutions should not give such illusions with respect to affiliation, as it concerned the students’ future. The bench said, “No educational institution has the right to put students under any illusion or confusion in a country ruled by the law.”

The court has asked the Union of India, UGC, AICTE and the IIPM to file affidavits clarifying their stand and about the validity of the degrees being provided by the institute. Justice Misra has also sought an explanation from the IIPM over the question of “franchising” education and providing it in an extra-territorial manner. Advocate A J Bhambhani, who filed the PIL said, the petitioner has e-mails from foreign universities, stating they had no affiliation with IIPM.

The UGC counsel has asked the court to debar IIPM from functioning as a coaching institute and confer degrees from foreign universities. Justice Misra issued notices to all parties, including the foreign varsity.

23.06.2008 - HC asks IIPM, UGC to resolve 'fake university' row amicably
NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court today asked the Indian Institute of Planning and Management and the University Grants Commission to amicably settle the dispute, arising out of the regulatory body's decision to declare the IIPM as a "fake university".

"You consult your respective clients (IIPM and UGC) on this issue and inform the court about possible settlement," a vacation bench of Justice Rajiv Shakdher said while posting the matter on June 27. The court's suggestion came after senior advocate A S Chandiok, appearing for the IIPM, contended that the main reservation was regarding the use of the word "fake" by the UGC about the institution. "We do not mind being called unrecognised. But, the word fake is not correct and this should not be used as it gives wrong signal," Chandiok said.

The court then asked counsel for the UGC to consider this issue. Earlier, the institute had contended that it was just providing training to financial entrepreneurs and was recognised all over the world. The IIPM contended that its name be removed from the list giving the names of fake universities. It was alleged that UGC took the decision without giving the Institute a chance to place its case before the regulatory body.

The UGC, however, opposed the contention and said that the management school representative failed to appear before it. The Commission said there was sufficient evidence against the Institute.

26th Aug: The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM), run by Arindam Chaudhuri, is not recognized by the government or any of India’s higher education bodies, says a public notice issued by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

The New Delhi-based IIPM “does not have the right of conferring or granting degrees as specified by the University Grants Commission”, such as master of business administration, bachelor of business administration and bachelor of computer applications, reads the notice. It adds that IIPM is not recognized by the ministry of human resource development (MHRD), UGC or the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

The UGC Vice-Chairman, Ved Prakash said,“IIPM is advertising its courses by using the name of UGC, MHRD and AICTE, It is indulging in cheating.” UGC issued the notice in the last week of July, after the Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education sent a letter to IIPM on 19 July questioning the authenticity of courses it offers at its Hyderabad branch.

The notice was published as an advertisement in some newspapers. “this is by direction to inform that the council has received a complaint alleging that the institution (IIPM) has been functioning by offering various academic programmes violating the provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Education Act and regulations of the Central agencies,”.

In emailed comments, IIPM group president for corporate affairs Amit Saxena conceded that the institute wasn’t a university nor was it empowered to award degrees on its own “and nor does it do (so).” “However IIPM is the on-site academic partner of M S University which grants its degrees to IIPM students,” Saxena wrote in the email, adding that IIPM had made representations to the UGC and Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education to “clarify the stand.” He said the subject was sub judice at the Delhi high court.

The IIPM is authorized to offer two-year MBA and three-year BBA and BCA courses under technical collaboration in all its 18 centres, said S. Manickam, registrar of Tirunelveli-based Manomaniam Sundaranar (M S ) University, in a letter enclosed by Saxena. We couldn’t immediately reach Manickam for comment.

The Andhra Pradesh state council had asked IIPM to provide recognition and affiliation letters from the state government and Central agencies. “We had received a complaint from student union group ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) and based on that we had written to IIPM and a few more institutes,” the council’s secretary M.D. Christopher,said.

“They have replied to us, but we are yet to see the content of it. We are going to set up a committee which will review the explanations.” If IIPM is found in breach of law, Christopher said the council would inform the state government and let it decide if any action is to be taken.

UGC Recognised Universities, Hrd Ministry De-recognised 44 Deemed Universities in India. List of 44 deemed universities or List of de recognized Deemed Universities in India is as follows. These 44 deemed universities have 1,19,363 students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In addition, there are 2,124 students pursuing research at MPhil and PhD levels and another estimated 74,808 students pursuing distance education programmes. As many as 41 of the 44 deemed universities have several constitutent institutions under them, which would further swell the number of affected students.

The HRD ministry’s review committee found following glaring omissions in case of 44 deemed universities:
* Undesirable management structure where families rather than professional academics controlled the functioning
* Several institutions had violated the principles and guidelines prescribing excellence in teaching and research and were engaged in introduction of thoughtless programmes
* Little evidence of noticeable efforts in case of emerging areas of knowledge
* Little evidence of commitment towards research
* Institutions increased their intake capacity disproportionately
* Undergraduate and post-graduate courses were fragmented with concocted nomenclatures
* Higher fee structure than prescribed

07.04.2010. Following article appeared in Daily Pioneer
Chicago Graduate School of Business did not have any association with IIPM (It did, and the original contract has been given to this newspaper). The author childishly not only lambasts the most reputed Haas Business School, Judge Business School and Darden Business School as being not anxious about their reputation, but also very loosely pooh-poohs Financial Times London (a most respected newspaper globally) and accuses them of writing puff pieces because they covered IIPM. The author makes a strange sophomoric claim that Judge Business School has warned IIPM to not use its logos. The reality is that when IIPM's contract ended, IIPM was told to stop using Judge's logo- which is a basic formality when any contract ends. The fact remains that about a thousand students from IIPM last year did a Certificate Programme in Advanced Global Management from Judge Business School and Judge was a "Partner B-School" for IIPM's Global Opportunity and Threat Analysis (GOTA) Programme and IIPM was legally allowed by them to use their logo in all their communication during the entire duration. The author in another self published piece claims the German Academic Exchange Service stopped funding a Neu-Ulm University student exchange project with IIPM due to its non-recognition. The author's slanted view becomes clear when she accepts that the German Academic Exchange Service's India office considers IIPM as amongst the top 10 b-schools in India. She also naively misrepresents the University of Bayreuth and the Mercator School of Management at the University of Duisburg-Essen as being "stubborn" in not breaking their IIPM association.

In summary, the author discredits all leading business schools of the world and even all newspapers in India in one line saying they only try to make money through their associations with IIPM (Coincidentally, it's a mirror of the claims of the Indian Careers magazine). Obviously, when there is nothing controversial about an issue or an institute, why would media houses invest their time in making up sensationalist news? That's the reason why newspapers don't report negatively on IIPM, why leading business schools continue their association with IIPM, and even why top faculties from Darden, Yale, MIT-Sloan, Harvard University proudly display IIPM's names on their resumes.

What is actually credit worthy is that all IIPM students are sent by IIPM for two to three weeks to organisations in various continents under GOTA, an initiative now actually being copied by ISB in its PGP MAX programme. GOTA gives students a multi-global exposure in how international corporations implement strategies, as well as getting a first hand idea about the role of governments and global institutions in social and economic development. IIPM students have been hosted - apart from its academic partners - by most prestigious companies and organisations like AXA insurance, Singapore, World Intellectual Property Organization, Switzerland, Deutsche Bank, Munich, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Munich, German Patent and Trademark Office, Allianz, Nestle, TCS, Germany, Seimens AG, Renault, Paris, Coca Cola, Belgium, EU Parliament, Belgium and the likes.

Student placements
Acceptably, the media overall has lavished considerable praise on IIPM's placements, which has regularly placed its students in Fortune 500 companies and leading companies of India. In 2008, IIPM placed 2,670 students through campus placements, including 165 international placements, a massive record for that year. In 2009, 2,300 students got 750 companies participating in the campus placements - an unheard of figure considering the fact that it was the toughest year due to the economic slowdown. The average annual pay package that year was also a very good Rs.420,000. But some reports have questioned whether a few companies like Deloitte, Standard Chartered, Barclays actually took IIPM students. Interestingly, we found out that not only have they taken IIPM students, most of them have been taking the IIPM students very regularly over many years.

Overall, the figures speak for themselves. This year, even while three months are left for the placement season to end, IIPM has already placed a mammoth 2031 students (with a domestic average package of Rs.460,000). Total international placements are already touching 33. Companies at campus include the choicest possible, with Google, Standard Chartered, Reliance ADAG, ICICI, Colgate Palmolive, HP, Xerox, IndiaBulls, Yamaha, Capital IQ-S&P, WNS Global, Wipro KPO, Yes Bank, Kingfisher UB Group, Sharp being amongst the cream. IIPM is no alien to such participation, with companies like American Express, Asian Paints, Citibank, Deloitte Consulting, Deutsche Bank, GE Money, HDFC Bank, Kotak, Oracle, Pepsi, Reebok, Vodafone, Yamaha etc having recruited IIPM students officially. No wonder IIPM has regularly got extremely high rankings for its placements and got the award for highest international placements in India for the last two years. While the India Today group's Mail Today ranked IIPM Delhi #1 in Delhi/NCR region in placements, the Zee Business Best B-School survey has regularly ranked IIPM amongst the top 10 in placements all over India.Which brings us to the topic of rankings!

B-School Rankings
The institute has consistently been ranked amongst the top b-schools in India and has even broken past benchmarks by beating the famed IIMs in a few parameters regularly. Way back in 2002 however, the same news weekly mentioned in the beginning had ranked IIPM 18th across India. In 2003, it again ranked them, but gave them only one rank better, that is 17th across India - and this despite IIPM being in the top fifteen in all quantitative rankings and even 4th on industry interface. It was later found that the research agency, had wrongly used four qualitative rankings to push down IIPM's rankings to 17th. When IIPM complained, apparently to save face, the magazine released an upstart statement almost two years post the incident that IIPM was being taken out from the rankings because IIPM gave the wrong data! Not only was their statement three years too late (IIPM had been ranked high since 2002), but it also opened up a Pandora's box about how their research agency used to take money for advertisements from the same institutions he used to rank as revealed recently by The Sunday Indian magazine (along with a sting on the agency).

IIPM seems to have come out the winner in all this, with recent b-school surveys ranking them very high. In 2009, Zee Business survey ranked IIPM 5th overall (1st in Global Exposure - again ahead of all the IIMs - 5th in Industry Interface, 7th in Course Contents, 8th in Placements). The same year, India Today group's Mail Today ranked IIPM 1st in Placement Record, Quality of Faculty and Global Exposure, and 2nd in Student Development and Network and Infrastructure in the NCR region. Hindustan Times Best B-Schools of India ranked IIPM Delhi 9th overall in India amongst all private B-Schools in India.

Academics and Course Content
Contrary to all the above allegations which are clearly biased and deliberately negative we decided to look at IIPMs main claim to fame that its courses are "qualitatively superior and intellectually stimulating", hence are superior to normal MBA and BBA academic programs. When we reviewed the same, there seemed to be much weight in the argument. The standard IIPM course itself is 22 months and 1944 hour long, with a heavy emphasis on entrepreneurship and national economic planning, with economics liberally and exhaustively being taught at various levels. Why IIPM believes in this is not a secret - while general MBA courses focus only on how to generate more and more profits, the IIPM programmes teach the critical additional connect between national growth, private enterprises and entrepreneurship; and the need to coordinate their growth for equitable social development to occur. All this is supported hand in hand by the IIPM Think Tank, the center of all IIPM research. The IIPM Think Tank supports the high quality magazines like The Sunday Indian, Business and Economy and 4Ps Business and Marketing and brings out top class journals, namely Strategic Innovators, India Economy Review and Need The Dough, which have commentaries and global research by esteemed and highly respected faculties/practitioners including Nobel Prize winning authors and ivy league professors. From the Economist to IMF published papers have regularly referred to IIPM Think Tank's research. This is apart from the fact that IIPM has in past officially been the research partner for Yale School of Management in developing the India-investor confidence index survey.

Unlike other B-Schools whose professors bring out books which are hardly read even by their own students, IIPMs books from Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch to The Great Indian Dream to the latest blockbuster Discover The Diamond In You have all been No.1 Best-Sellers in India. IIPM has even been a UNDP key partner institution in India and a member of the World Bank Institute's CSR committee in past. No wonder then that it has been awarded the best B-School in the non IIM category for two consecutive years!

In conclusion of our investigations, we realised that IIPM has been in the forefront of public discussions because never before has any institute - with strong rationale - been courageous enough to challenge the legacy ranking of b-schools that has existed unquestioned and almost unchanged within India for years. Of course, advertising oneself is a critical strategic tool used extremely intelligently by IIPM - one which has given it many followers, but also some critics (especially from the IIMs), who perhaps find it hard to see the abovementioned legacy rankings challenged and being changed for the first time in recent history. Blogs, clearly illogical and defamatory Wikipedia entries, chat forums, twitter, facebook, are proof to the fact about how easy it is to misrepresent facts using puerile, infantile and immature discussions based on anonymous users. Visit any forum and you would realise that authenticity is a virtue rarely found, and brash criticism by vitriol loaded speakers available a dime a dozen. The truth however very often is clearly something else as we found out in the case of IIPM!
