About Indian Institute of Mass Communication

Inaugurated on August 17, 1965, by the then Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Smt. Indira Gandhi, the Institute started with a small staff, including two consultants from UNESCO. In the first few years, the Institute organized training courses mainly for Central Information Service Officers and undertook research studies on a modest scale. Then, in 1969, a major international training program, the Postgraduate Diploma Course in Journalism for Developing Countries, for middle-level working journalists from Afro-Asian countries, was started. A number of specialized short courses of one week to three months’ duration were subsequently started by the Institute to meet the training needs of communication professionals working in various media/publicity outfits of the central/state governments and public sector organizations. Over the years, IIMC Delhi has expanded and now offers regular Post-graduate Diploma Courses. IIMC Delhi courses provide Journalism (English), Journalism (Hindi), Radio & Television Journalism, Advertising & Public Relations, Digital Media, Journalism (Malayalam), Journalism (Marathi), Journalism (Odia), and Journalism (Urdu). Check IIMC Delhi Courses

The syllabi are reviewed every year to make changes and suitable modifications to make them relevant to the needs of the industry. The IIMC New Delhi Society, an autonomous body registered under the Societies Registration Act 1867, runs the Institute. It is funded by the Government of India through the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Govt. of India. 

The Institute has a Governing Body, the Executive Council, headed by a Chairman, with the Director General of the Institute, representatives of the faculty, and eminent media persons as members. To be admitted to the PG Diploma Courses at IIMC, a candidate must first pass a written examination. This test will assess the candidate's knowledge of national and international issues, aptitude, language proficiency, and so on. Those who pass the written test will be ranked by course and category. They'll then appear for Group Discussions, where a topic will be assigned. The candidate's communication skills will be assessed. The third round will be an interview in which panel members will interact with students to assess their understanding of everyday issues. Check IIMC Delhi Admission.

Since IIMC Delhi’s training programs and alumni have made a mark, there have been demands to open more centers of the Institute. IIMC Delhi training programs have been tailored to meet the needs of developing countries and this is what makes IIMC different from other centers of mass communication training in this country and elsewhere. This also gives a different identity and character to our alumni. The highest salary package went up from 11 LPA to 12 LPA for the advertising and public relations department. Check IIMC Delhi Placement
