Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Rohtak has been inaugurated. As per sources, the institute had been formally launched by the Vice Chairman of Tata Motors Limited and Chairperson of the Board of Governors at IIT-Rohtak, Ravi Kant. Currently, IIM Rohtak will commence with an intake capacity of 50 students, all of which have been filled up for the current academic year.
Until the time IIM Rohtak gets its own faculty, the faculty of IIM-Lucknow would organize classes. The process of recruiting faculty members to teach at the university is likely to take a period of about a year. However, a permanent director for the institute would be recruited within a month.
In addition, presently, the new IIM will begin functioning from the Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU) campus, until it can have its own building, which might take a time period of 2 years. Moreover, the MDU would also be providing temporary residence to the faculty members from IIM-Lucknow.
