The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, (IIM-A) plans to increase
its student intake by 28% starting next year. 

The institute also plans to increase its faculty strength and bring about changes in curricula. "There has been an increase in the number of applicants from the US and Europe who want to be part of the faculty. Some of them are teachers from foreign universities," said IIM-A dean Prof BH Jajoo. "We hope to have over 120 faculty members, up from 90, over the next few years," he said. "We hope the Sixth Pay Commission will enhance their salaries," he added.

IIM-A, which had asked for Rs 50 crore for its expansion, has been sanctioned Rs 32 crore by the government. It will raise the rest of the amount through internal accruals and alumni network.
