The notification dated May 18, 2014, University Grants Commission (UGC), said, “Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM), New Delhi is not a University within the meaning of Section 2 (f) of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956.”

It further added, “as per Section 22 of University Grants Commission Act, 1956, the Indian Institute of Planning and Management does not have the right of conferring or granting degrees as specified by the university Grants Commission under Section  22 (3) of the University Grants Commission Act.”
