A few buildings at the Punjab Institute of Technology at the Government Polytechnic Compound are refurbished on a war-footing basis to meet pedagogical requirements of the highly rigorous and respected program in the country. 

“Despite the fact that we are working on an extremely tight deadline, it would be our attempt to provide the best learning experience to the students of the PGP at IIM Amritsar”, said Prof. Anjan Kumar Swain, Professor at IIM Kozhikode and Nodal Professor for IIM Amritsar. He further added, “As the program would run from the temporary facilities at Punjab Institute of Technology till the new campus infrastructure is established on 60 acres of land near Manawala, there would be some challenges that students and faculty have to face, which is understood when a program runs from a temporary facilities in the initial years.” 

When it comes to learning and curriculum, however, the IIM Kozhikode faculty has gladly agreed to take the additional responsibility of teaching the group of students at Amritsar. “We have been receiving great support from the IIM Kozhikode faculty and academic groups who are identifying faculty resource for this new Institute. IIM Kozhikode will strive to lay a strong foundation of an Institute that would make them proud in the years to come.” Prof. Kulbhushan Balooni, Director, IIM Kozhikode and Mentor Director, IIM Amritsar said. Prof. Balooni, also acknowledged the support of Punjab Government and local authorities in Amritsar, and appreciated the great efforts of key officials at the district collectorate, PWD department and other civic bodies, Punjab Institute of Technology in making this possible in short time.
