The Arindam Chaudhuri-promoted Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) is closing all its campuses in India, except Delhi, it said on its website. The institute will not take fresh admissions into any of its management courses.
“All IIPM campuses now only have old students and these campuses are being shut down as and when old batches finish their courses. IIPM will be operative only in Delhi as a research and training institutions, the training will be imparted only to corporates or institutions who enter into a technical collaboration of knowledge sharing with IIPM,” the announcement on the website said.
“From 2015 IIPM has entered into technical collaboration of knowledge sharing with various institutions in India and has stopped taking direct admissions. As a part of the technical collaboration, IIPM primarily sends its researchers and faculty to take papers in other institutions and offer its “Certificate in Planning and Entrepreneurship” to students in those institutions,” the institute said.
IIPM was in news recently when University Grants Commission had warned all students on its website that the institution was not recognised by the higher education regulator and not authorised to award degrees.
