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).

In the notice issued by AICTE, which can be read below, confirm officially that IIPM is not authorised to issue any degree. Please read the Notice of AICTE for IIPM,Indian Institute of Planning and Management :

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).

IIPM is advertising its courses by using the name of UGC, MHRD and AICTE,” UGC vice-chairman Ved Prakash said. “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 somenewspapers.

“..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,” read the letter.

The apex higher education body, in the notice, also said that “IIPM does not have the right of conferring or granting degrees as specified by the University Grants Commission under section 22(3) of the UGC Act.”

The notice said: “It is hereby informed to the public at large and students that IIPM, New Delhi, is not a University within the meaning of section 2(f) of the UGC Act, 1956.”
