The ball has been set rolling for the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) - Ranchi, the eighth IIM of the country, to have a permanent address. Spread over 200 acres, the institute is now likely to function from its own campus in Khunti, some 35 km from the state capital.
It has been functioning from the ground and seventh floors of the state government's information and public relations department's Suchna Bhavan with 44 students for almost a year.A two-member team from the Union Ministry of human resource development (MHRD) verified the site at Birhar village on the Khunti-Karra road, where 800-acre land has been identified for creating an education hub.Admissions to IIM-Ranchi were made through CAT in 2009 and classes for the first batch began in July 2010. Visiting faculty from IIM-Calcutta is imparting the Post Graduate Programme in Management course at the IIM in its nascent years."Most of the land is upland raiyati (private), but is neither a forest nor a tribal land. So, it will not invite any resistance from the land owners," said Khunti deputy commissioner Rakesh Kumar. Adequate compensation for the land would be paid to the land owners, said Kumar.He said the MHRD required about 200 acres for the IIM. The visiting team gave its nod to the site pending some formalities. The proposed education hub in Khunti district would include a central university as well as a law university, both of which are now running from government buildings.Unlike BIT, Mesra, which was so named because of its location, this IIM will not undergo any change in its nomenclature. "It will be known as IIM, Ranchi, even if it relocates to the neighbouring Khunti district," said officiating director, higher education R. N. Tripathy.
