Following opposition from various quarters, including faculty members, students, alumni and design fraternity, against the decision to change the logo of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA), the Board of Governors Wednesday decided to keep the decision in abeyance. The board took the decision at a meeting prior to the institute’s 57th convocation scheduled in the evening.
We had a discussion and decided to keep in abeyance as of now. Errol (IIMA Director Prof Errol D’Souza) will put it out for wider consultations and inputs and we will then take a look at it again,” said Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman of IIMA Board of Governors. In a statement issued on April 1 on its official website, the IIMA stated that “the proposed logo is to be released in June of this year after the annual vacation”.
