Court asks B-school, commission to settle recognition issueJune 23rd, 2008 - 9:53 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday asked the Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) and the University Grants Commission (UGC) to amiably settle the dispute arising out of the regulatory panel’s decision to put the institute under ‘derecognised university’ list. The IIPM moved the court after the UGC, in its website, listed it under the ‘dercognised’ universities. The IIPM stated that it does not give any degrees and the move by the regulatory commission could be interpreted as it being a ‘fake’ insititute.
“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 June 27.
IIPM counsel A.s. Chandiok said: “We just impart financial training and do not give out any degrees. But such a categorisation is not correct and could give out wrong signals.”
