The 48th convocation of Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) will be on 5th February’16. Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore will be the chief guest at the function.
The convocation takes place usually in the month of November as the course ends in the same month but this year the situation is different.
As the Director General has not been appointed and the certificates always carry DG’s signature but this year the certificates will carry the signature of Secretary of Information & Broadcasting Ministry, who is the chairman of the institute.
The institute authorities are not ready to distribute original certificates for the students of the last batch, which is causing several problems, the students had said.
"We request you to understand the situation and take an immediate action to organise convocation and speed up appointment of DG. We hope you will not forget the fact that future of hundreds of students is in your hands," said the petition signed by over 100 students and alumni.
The term of the previous IIMC DG Sunit Tandon had ended in November last year.
