This document details the process for selecting candidates for PGP programme at IIM Rohtak for the batch of 2020-22.


The basic objective of IIM-R’s admission process is to identify meritorious candidates for admission under each category of admission, viz., General, NC-OBC, SC, ST, EWS and PWD/DAP. While merit is the prime consideration, the Institute recognizes a possibility of skewed student structure in favour of male gender and engineering and related subjects at graduation in the normal course. Hence, it strives to ensure a better balance in opportunities among different subject streams and genders. It is also part of IIM Rohtak’s approach to duly recognize academic consistency.


The admission process of IIM-R is a five-stage process:

Stage I            Online Registration for PGP Admission 2020-22 batch, IIM Rohtak.

Stage II           Written Analysis Test (WAT) & Personal Interview (PI)

Stage III         The Final Selection List based on CAT score, WAT & PI score & Diversity.


Stage IV         Offer for Provisional Admission for the PGP programme 2020-22 batch


Stage V          Reporting for joining the PGP programme 2020-22 (Batch –XI)
