About Indian Institute of Mass Communication

On August 17, 1965, Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) was inaugurated by late Smt. Indira Gandhi. It is an autonomous society under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

At present, the institute has five regional centres at Aizawl (Mizoram), Amravati (Maharashtra), Dhenkanal (Odisha), Jammu (J&K) and Kottayam (Kerala).

Started with a small staff, including two consultants from UNESCO. In the first few years, the institute organised training courses mainly for Central Information Service Officers and undertook research studies on a modest scale.

Later, in 1969, a major international training programme, the Post Graduate Diploma course in Journalism for Developing Countries, for middle level working journalists from Afro-Asian countries, was started.

To meet the training needs of communication professionals working in various media/publicity outfits of the central/state governments and public sector organisations, a number of specialised short courses of one week to three months duration were added. Over the years, IIMC has expanded and now offers regular Post Graduate Diploma courses.

The process of admission to the following PGD courses commences with the publication of advertisements in leading newspapers in the month of March.


  • The IIMC will set global standards for media education, research, extension and training, using state-of-the-art technology for building a knowledge-driven information society, contributing to the human development, empowerment and participatory democracy, anchored in pluralism, universal values and ethics


  • To create a dynamic learning and working environment which nurtures new ideas, creativity, research and scholarship and develops leaders and innovators in the domain of media and mass communication
