Most academicians believe that the functioning of AICTE has changed its track and working style after an eminent educationist Dr Anil D Sahasrabuddhe took over as it’s chairman in 2016. He has resolved a long pending legal tangle of PGDM institutions and given a sympathetic consideration to the demand of EPSI and AIMS for granting autonomy to good schools. This process was further expedited when Dr Janat Shah , Director,IIM,Udaipur joined as Chairperson, All India Board of Management Studies at AICTE.
Two years back,on April 29,2017 a group of deans and directors from leading bschools held a long discussion with AICTE Chairman Dr Sahasrabuddhe and Dr Janat Shah on the issue of granting greater autonomy to accredited good quality PGDM institutions.
In the above background, AICTE has issued a Gazette Notification on January 24,2019 on Greaded Autonomy to PGDM institutions.
