Written by: Staff

Lucknow, Aug 25 (UNI) Indian Institues of Management (IIMs) have made it clear they need at least three years to implement the new quota system.

Refusing to comment on the ongoing quota protests, director, IIM-Lucknow Prof Devi Singh said it was time to look forward and find ways to implement the new quota norms.

The B schools were all set to meet the new challenges. The 18th annual conference of Association of Indian Management Schools (AIMS), which started here today at the IIM-L campus may not have made a direct mention of the new controversy, but the directors were confident that recruitment of additional faculty would be a way out to meet the government's decision.

''I would not like to comment on it (quota protest). But I feel we should look forward on as to how to implement it,'' IIM-L director Prof Devi Singh said.

Following the new quota norms, IIMs have made it clear that they require new faculty and infrastructure adjustments. ''We had made it clear that we need at least three years' time to meet the new requirement...we need to see to faculty and infrastructural revamping,'' Prof Singh said.

Incidentally, OBC quota bill was tabelled in the Lok Sabha today.
