IIM Nagpur Became a Reality

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated state’s first Indian Institute of Management (IIM) chapter in Nagpur.
The first batch of 60 students will undertake their studies on the makeshift premises of Visveswaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) Nagpur. An estimated 293 acres of land has been allotted for institute’s infrastructure in Mihan industrial area.
Greeting the first batch for having chosen Nagpur as their centre, the chief minister said “With more institutions like IIT, Central Power Research Institute (CPRI) and AIIMS set to come to Nagpur soon, the city will become an educational hub like Mumbai and Pune.
“Our students from the IITs and IIMs have excelled in the world. Eight out of ten (technocrats) were from India. You can build an infrastructure in two to three years but there is an urgent need for building an institution” he added further.
“The new institutes will be mentored by IIM-Ahemdabad, and develop its own independent command structure within three years,” said IIM-A director Ashish Nanda.
