The complaint from UGC states that despite of the unauthorized courses, the Institute charges high course fees from students that’s completely illegal. Students are charged an amount of 5 lakh-14 lakh (approximately) for a time period of 22 months for various Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs.
UGC and AIPMT said that the degrees provided by IIPM are completely false and do not hold any recognition from the statutory bodies. So, the institute is misleading students with its false degrees that they can’t use anywhere and would become frustrated holding such useless features.
The Managing body of IIPM says that they never revealed such facts that the Institute is recognized by any regulatory body neither they provide any sort of degrees. They provide certificates for the IIPM’s programs and it’s clearly depicted in the prospectus that only interested students should apply without any sort of confusion in their mind.
