IIPM fraud-scam

It is one of the biggest fraud in Indian education system. Arindham found loop-holes in Indian system, and took advantage of it. Its a money making machine for him.

IIPM is completely hopeless. You will be fool if you join it.

It is just matter of time. Arindham will be behind the bars. He is white collar 420, one of the greatest con-man walked on earth. IIPM hasn’t learnt any lesson, not that we expected it to, and continues making pompous claims in full-page ads on major national dailies(I doubt any of those would publish any negative news on IIPM) and students still fall for such arrogates.

Therefore it becomes a responsibility for people who are aware of the facts to disseminate the other side of the story at regular intervals. We might not have the resources for full-page colour ads but we have the strength of community and we should use it for the advantage of the unsuspecting and gullible students who spend lakhs of their parents earnings for a ‘degree’ whose worth is under question.

In September 2014 the Dehli High Court censured IIPM and its founder Arindam Chaudhuri for misleading students. A division bench restrained IIPM and its management with immediate effect from using the words “MBA, BBA, management course, management school, business school or b-school” in relation to the courses offered by it as well as in representations made to the public.

The court noted that IIPM was promoting an impression that it had recognition from a foreign management institute, International Management Institute(IMI), Belgium. The court found that IMI had in fact been set up by Arindam Chaudhuri and his father Malay Chaudhuri, and was not even recognized by the laws of Belgium. The institute was also “directed to prominently display on the website of IIPM that they are not recognized by any statutory body/authority” and clarify the status of the foreign institutions from which students enrolling in IIPM would be getting a degree or certification.

The IIPM had reportedly used paid editors to doctor its article and those of its critics on the English Wikipedia, a free content online encyclopedia, for promotional purposes. A Wikipedia user identified by the username Wifione was highly involved in such activity, monitoring the IIPM article to remove content that was critical of the institute. After gaining the trust of users, Wifione was also promoted to the position of administrator, and used this new influence to continue these activities.

It was also found that Wifione had used at least 60 "sockpuppet" accounts on the website to influence discussions in favor of modifications to the page that reflected the opinion of the IIPM. The effects of these strategies were magnified by the introduction of the Wikipedia Zero program, which offers free access to Wikipedia content on mobile phones in developing countries—including India. This program thus allowed users to discover the institute's biased article. In February 2015, Wifione was banned from Wikipedia by its Arbitration Committee(ArbCom) for these actions.
