IIM-B is worthful for being the first autonomous B-school in India. It deserves kudos to declare that it would be compatible to the government-mandated reservation quota from backward sections such as SC/ST/OBCs for students in the doctoral fellow programme in management(FPM) 2018-19. SC/ST/OBCs constitute about 70% of the total population in India, but they are dazzlingly absent in IIMs in faculty/research positions. However, it is now cheerfully encouraging that the IIM Alumni Global Network has been pushing for affirmative action. Hence, even a new Bill passed by the Lok Sabha offers new autonomy to the IIMs.
