New IIMs prove acceptability by the industry
Completion of summer placement at IIM Amritsar and IIM Visakhapatnam has cleared the fog whether the newest IIMs would be able to place their first batch students as there was uncertainty on their acceptability by industry.

The conclusion of summer placement at the 2 new IIMs for their maiden batch has raised hope among the aspirants and for those who were in a dilemma whether to join new IIMs as they can now take a clear decision to join the new IIMs.

All the 6 new IIMs came into being in 2015 after their establishment was announced in the Union Budget 2014. While 5 of the 6 IIMs got finalized in the Budget 2014, the fate of IIM Visakhapatnam took the final shape in the Budget 2015 till then it remained a Government Ordinance entity.

These IIMs are mentored by top 6 older IIMs in India and the students of the new IIMs will continue to be taught by the faculty from the top 6 IIMs namely IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore and IIM Kozhikode. Those who decide in favour of new IIMs will be getting the best learning from the best faculty on management education for at least 2-3 more years till these new IIMs do not get their own faculty recruited.

Admission process in the 6 new IIMs will be finalized in the beginning of May 2016 - around a month from now. All the new IIMs propose to go for an intake of 60 students each...

Hi. Is this link working for anyone?


I found this in their official website.

I appreciate your response after trying.


What happened to the admissions based on the interview they took? Is the admission process over? If not, when will we be notified? Also, please explain why iim amritsar and bodh gaya are inviting fresh applications? Is it for the two year course? 

Dear puys, the issue of the link not working has been reported to the authorities concerned and the deadline has been extended to 26 th April. We will definitely revert back as we get a response. So dont worry, I can understand your anxiety as we were in the same phase last year, but please be rest assured as all the glitches will be ironed out.

Puys you can check the link. IIM C and IIM K will be conducting a joint admission process for IIM Amritsar and IIM Gaya. The interviews will be conducted in 5 cities namely Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Gaya and Kolkata. So an aspirant can choose his interview centre as per his/her convenience.

Ye ho kya rha he ??? Mai toh soch k baitha tha ab interviews se shanti mil jaegi ... Ab ye alag se interviews kaha se aye

Hi I just want to confirm that the separate process is only got those who were not selected in cap round held by kashipur... These are some extra calls considering that all those selected in cap off kashipur don't turn up to take admissions.. @rrj93

Since I sat for cap round do I need to sit again??

IIM Kozhikode and IIM Calcutta are conducting a joint admission process for IIM Amritsar and IIM Gaya. So mails have been sent to only those candidates who have a good cat score(above 95.6%) and a good profile. Only these candidates can register on the link. For others an error message will pop up.

There is no wat pi centre at Hyderabad. Is there any possibility, to conduct at Hyderabad, if candidates request? Update: Dropped a mail to AO, regarding this. I request people who got call from IIM Amritsar for wat/pi, and based out of Hyderabad, to drop the mails, requesting Hyderabad location.

I have received a mail to select the wat pi venue.. Means I'm selected for next round of selection process??

To answer everyones' query regarding the selection criteria followed by IIM Amritsar, please go through the link :- http://iimamritsar.ac.in/pgpadmpolicy2016.php IIM Amritsar follows a two stage process as mentioned in the admission policy. The weightage of Cat is 40%. A significant weightage is given for PI(35%) and WAT(15%). So an aspirant's people skills(a pre-requisite for an MBA) will be judged very keenly. Best of luck!!!! As the orientation program at IIM Asr will begin on 25th June, the first shortlist is expected around 20th May.

When will the session start ?

I have given my wat/pi for the new IIM's which also includes IIM Amritsar. Now I see some link on the website to apply for wat/pi. Will my earlier wat/pi be considered or should I apply again?
