IIPM (remember Arindam Chaudhuri and the half page ads on the last page of major dailies) is not authorized to confer degrees, the UGC has clarified. Amazingly, IIPM responded by saying that UGC has no rights to take such a decision.
The clarification by UGC means certificates issued by IIPM cannot be a used as qualifying criteria for government jobs or for higher education. It may be accepted in certain foreign universities which has specifically approved IIPM, but professionals intending for higher education should make sure they understand the facts.See UGC’s notice.
