Shillong, Aug 30 (UNI) Meghalaya Governor M M Jacob has urged the Rymbai-led government to speed up the process of setting up the proposed Indian Institute of Management (IIM) here.

Mr Jacob has also asked the state government to immediately transfer the land to the Education department for the project.

''The state government needs to speed up the process as it is a prestigious project,'' Mr Jacob said during his visit at Mawdiangdiang, the proposed site of the IIM campus.

''The government should not delay the construction of IIM,'' he said.

However, Mr Jacob assurance that he would also request the UPA government to speed up the process to ensure the completion of the project in time.

Earlier, Chief Minister J D Rymbai had sent letters to Union Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh to expedite the process to start the institute here in time.
