New Delhi, Jul 15 (UNI) The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) today approached the Delhi High Court to quash the All India Council of Technical education's (AICTE) decision, which has asked them to shut down as they have not sought their necessary approval.
Justice G S Sistani issued a notice to AICTE and asked them to reply by July 22 in the matter.
The AICTE had on June 30 served a notice on IIPM to shut down their institution, saying they have not taken the necessary approval from them.
The AICTE's stand is that IIPM was operating as a full-flegded college and conducting management courses with the affilation of Foreign Universities but had not taken any approval from them therefore they should shut down the institute.
IIPM, on the other hand, said it was not conducting any formal MBA or other courses and was not like a college. They were only preparing students to run their institutions effectively, therefore no formal approval of AICTE was required.
IIPM said the AICTE's decision would hamper the future of many aspiring students who want to excel in life.
The matter will come up for arguments on July 22.
