A bill on IIM would be introduced in Parliament in the Winter session, the Union Minister promised, speaking at a public meeting organised after the stone laying ceremony at Gambheeram village in Anandapuram mandal on the outskirts of the city.

Admissions to IIM-Visakhapatnam are open from the academic year 2015-16. The IIM-Bangalore is the mentor institution for the IIM-V.

The classes for the IIM-V would be conducted from temporary premises on the Andhra University campus till the infrastructure is established on the over 300 acre campus coming up on the city outskirts.

The IIM-V is the first of the Central premier institutions to be established in the State of Andhra Pradesh under the provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act 2014. The foundation stones for other central institutions like IIT would also be laid within this academic year, Andhra Pradesh Minister for Education and HRD Ganta Srinivasa Rao said.
