SC Grants Extension to its Interim Stay against AICTE’s Notification dated December 28, 2010 on the Autonomy of PGDM Institutions

Long pending legal matter of 350+ PGDM institutions pertaining to the withdrawal of the autonomy enjoyed by these b’schools since 60’s, has come up before the Supreme Court today afternoon.  In December 2010, the AICTE has issued an order by which autonomy of PGDM  institutions (Self finance autonomous) in respect of admissions, fee fixation, curriculum and examination matters was withdrawn.  After lot of persuation with the MHRD and the AICTE, the EPSI and AIMS had to file a Writ Petition (92/2011) in the Supreme Court.  During the last six years, the apex court has stayed the AICTE’s Notification five times in favour of PGDM institutuions.

The EPSI and the AIMS Writ Petition (C) No.92 of 2011 before the bench comprising of the Hon’ble Chief Justice Mr T S Thakur and Hon’ble Dr Justice D Y Chandrachud.  The matter came up for hearing today, i.e. Friday, the 16th Deceber, 2016.

The matter was heard by the bench and the Hon’ble Court has extended the stay dated March 17, 2011 for the Academic Session Year 2017-18 also. The PGDM Institutions for the academic session 2017-18 will continue to take admissions through six national tests viz., CAT, XAT, MAT, ATMA, GMAT and CMAT.  We are waiting for the issue of Order from the Hon’ble Supreme Court, the same will be sent as soon as it is received by us.

Dr H Chaturvedi, Alternate President, EPSI & Director, BIMTECH, Greater Noida has said that the Hon’ble Supreme Court has once again endorsed the plea of PGDM institutions that the autonomy of PGDM institutions is vitally important for the future growth trajectory of Indian economy and the AICTE should refrain from trampling it.  Both the EPSI and the AIMS have been in touch with the Chairman, AICTE who is trying to resolve it amicably.  Since it is taking time, we have to go to the Supreme Court.  Now with the order of the apex court, cloud of suspicion on PGDM admissions for the next year are clear and we can go ahead for conducting GD/Interviews.

Dr Chaturvedi said that we shall continue to pursue both the MHRD and the AICTE for an amicable settlement based on mutual trust and understanding.  We are confident that the policy makers will understand our point-of-view.  Our only request to them is to allow us to work in such a way that we are able to compete globally and make India-A Hub for MBA Education.
