On April 23, President of India Ram Nath Kovind will attend a function hosted by the Indian Institute of Management, Nagpur (IIM-N).

According to reports, the President will dedicate the new IIM-N campus in MIHAN. This will be his first trip to Nagpur since becoming India’s President.

Nagpur was added to the list of IIMs in the country during the tenure of Devendra Fadnavis as Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Initially, it started functioning from the premises of Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) with IIM, Ahmedabad as its mentor.

Shifting of IIM-N to its own campus got delayed, the coronavirus pandemic being one of the reasons. After Dr Bhimaraya Metri took charge as its Director, developments in the institute gained momentum. Shifting of the institute to its own premises is one of those.
