Patna, (Bihar Times): Though Bihar is not getting an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) like Jharkhand––it is of course getting IIT––yet some IIM-Ahmadabad alumni, along with its faculty members, are helping the Bihar government to set up Chandragupta Institute of Management, Patna (CIMP) on the lines of IIM-A.

CIMP will start its first academic year from July 2008. Last week, experts from IIM-A visited Patna to evaluate the prospects of building a grand library for CIMP.

Abhinav Jain, Amit Kumar, Rahul Roushan, Kartik Laxman, Akshat Khare, Kaushlendra and Mayank Premi from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, who are also IIM-A alumni are applying their management skills to develop this institutes.

According to reports from Ahmedabad while Rahul, Karthik, Akshat and Kaushlendra will help out with strategy and operations of CIMP, Mayank, Amit and Abhinav will take part in shaping the curriculum and teaching process of the institute. Chairman of the placement committee at IIM-A, Prof. Piyush Sinha,is one of the key members involved in the shaping up of CIMP.

It needs to be mentioned that when the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar visited IIM-A at the annual business summit in November 2006 he had a closed-door interaction with students from his home state. He also held some preliminary discussions with the then IIM-A director Bakul Dholakia and faculty members for necessary advice and guidance for the setting up of the management institution on the pattern and standard of IIMs in Patna.

According to the Director of CIMP, V Mukundadas, IIM-A has agreed in principle to support CIMP with its technical expertise in setting up the library, although a formal announcement is yet to be made by the authorities in this regard.
