B-school contests unrecognised university labelJune 20th, 2008 - 11:07 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 20 (IANS) The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) Friday approached the Delhi High Court challenging the University Grant’s Commission (UGC) decision to classify it as a unrecognized university. Filing a petition, through its counsel A.S. Chandiok, the IIPM stated that the UGC on its website has categorized it as an unrecognized university.
“We are not a university. We only impart financial training to management students and moreover we did not issue any degree too,” argued Chandiok before the court.
Counsel argued that putting the IIPM under unrecognized university list may seem as if it was a fake institution.
The vacation bench of Justice S.N. Aggarwal posted the matter for Monday and asked the UGC to file a reply to the petition.
