Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs):

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are currently twenty in number. These are autonomous public institutes that offer courses in management education and research in India. These institutes offer doctoral, postgraduate and executive education programmes.

Based on the recommendation of the Planning Commission, the IIMs were set up with the initiative of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. Under the Indian Societies Registration Act, all the Indian Institutes of Management are registered as societies.

All the IIMs are autonomous institutions and the day-to-day operations are carried out independently. However, the IIM Council oversees the overall strategy and the administration of all IIMs.

India's Minister of Human Resource Development heads the IIM Council. The Council consists of the directors and chairpersons of all IIMs and also senior officials from the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of India.

On 24 January 2017, the Union Cabinet approved the Indian Institute of Management Bill, 2017, according to which the IIMs were declared as institutes of national importance. This means that they will be able to grant degrees and make important changes in the institute as and when required.
