Even as the debate over the fee-cut imposed by the government on the Indian Institutes of Management rages there is another issue which has reared its head: Are the IIMs 'elitist' organisations?
India's Minister for Human Resource Development Murli Manohar Joshi has also said that since the IIMs are being funded by the government they need to show greater accountability because they are being funded by the taxpayer's money.
As alumni or teachers at IIMs do you agree with his views? What do you feel sets the IIMs apart?
rediff.com got three alumni from IIM-Ahmedabad and Prof Trilochan Sastry of IIM-Bangalore to write in and tell us.
'Fee cut will harm IIM prestige'
'Don't tinker with the IIMs'
'Stop the onslaught on IIMs, IITs'
'Fee reduction has paralysed IIMs'
As alumni and teachers do you want to have your say too?
