Following litigation, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have opened doors to students from educational institutions that are not recognized by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).

The IIMs until now allowed graduates only from educational institutions recognised by the Associaiton of Indian Universities (AIU).

However, anyone who qualifies in the CAT exam will now be eligible for admission to an IIM.

“Students from non-AIU member institutions too can prove their talent at the IIMs now,” said IIM Ahmedabad Director Bakul Dholakia, adding that the older rule now stood void.

The decision comes after two graduates from DAIICT, one of whom had scored a 99 percentile in CAT, but were denied admission in IIM A went to court on the matter.

IIM A had denied them admission because DAIICT was not an AIU member.
