Nagpur: In a positive step for the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Nagpur, a team from the ministry for human resources development (MHRD) made site inspections for the proposed institute on Wednesday and gave a positive feedback, indicating that the premier institution may commence operations from July.
"The permanent as well as makeshift facilities provided by the Maharashtra government are excellent and we are grateful to them. We will file our report to the MHRD within a week and its endorsement is expected by another week. We're expecting a positive decision by February-end," said, MHRD additional secretary Amarjit Sinha, who headed the panel.
The MHRD team interacted with chairman of VNIT Board of Governors Vishram Jamdar and director Narendra Chaudhari during their visit to VNIT. "We told them that we're ready to start the prestigious institution from the forthcoming session and we're ready for any kind of help," said, Jamdar.
After inspection of the permanent site, the MHRD team had a meeting with Maharashtra Airport Development Corporation (MADC) officials at incubation centres.
"MADC project manager SV Chahande explained them about entire project and companies coming up there. They liked the Mihan site which has a lake in front of it. The MHRD's approval is expected in a couple of weeks after which IIM-A would appoint a nodal officer for coordination and future formalities. The appointment process for faculties and other directors would begin probably by March-end," Thakre said.
