IIPM MBA Students File Petition in High Court against IIPM
demanding refunds of fees and close or derecognize IIPM and prosecute them

A batch of students from Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) filed a petition in Karnataka High court seeking refund of fees paid by them for pursuing an MBA course at the institute.
The students of IIPM also sought a direction to the authorities to take appropriate steps to close or derecognize IIPM and prosecute them under relevant provisions of law.

while hearing the petition Justice S Abdul Nazir verified the institute's prospectus and saw the photos of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan in the Prospectus after looking them
the Honorable Judges ask to the lawyer representing IIPM that "What has Shah Rukh Khan got to do with your institution? Does he have any contract as your brand
ambassador? Or he is an old student? What is the connection? Can celebrities like him promote an educational institution as they promote a product?"

The judge also indicated that in case there is no satisfactory response from IIPM with regard to the queries posed by the court, notice may be ordered to SRK requiring him to appear and reply .

The petitioners who were admitted for a two-y ear full-time MBA degree in planning and
entrepreneurship in 2010-1 1 have complained that inspite of their repeated enquiries, neither the IIPM had not disclosed any information pertaining to its registration, recognition, affiliation nor any provision of law under which the institute has been established or functioning.
They also claimed that the MS University , Tamil Nadu which had certified IIPM as an approved onsite academic partner is a private University and cannot operate outside Tamil Nadu and doesn't possess approval for conducting distance education courses.

Further the Petitioners informed to the Court that When the classes commenced in a godown in electronics city , the devastated students questioned the staff about the genuineness of the course. To this the staff members revealed that IIPM was neither
registered nor affiliated by any statutory authorities as required under law,"

"As per the prospectus, the IIPM is offering three categories of courses depending upon fee structure, highest being Rs 11 lakh and the minimum being Rs 4.7 lakh.

The court has posted the matter to July 4 on the petition filed by Praveen V Mesta and others.
The Karnataka high court has issued notice to Bangalore University and the Visvesvaray a Technological University , Belgaum, with regards to a petition filed by students.

Arindam Choudhary is the founder-director of IIPM.

Dear xxxxx

In order to take admissions in IIPM you have to undergo the process which is been laid down by IIPM itself we can not make or alter any of the thing.

If we have already provided you with selection letter and its been clearly written in the selection letter regarding the due date in that case we cannot change or fluctuate dates .Kindly give me the name of the person who have given you such wrong information.
In order to confirm your doubts and confusion you can directly call on no.011-41799994 this is the official no. of IIPM which is also mentioned on the website, (www.iipm.edu)

Now I am telling you for the very last time to give me the confirm date on which you will be making the payments after this i will be forwarding your case to the higher authorities which could result into unnecessary action which can affect your admissions with us.


I have saved the mail for future references.

they only want money and they have proved their own slogan "dare to think different"-for money...
