A fake institute in Ahmedabad selling fake degrees, beware from International Institute of Management and Technical Studies

I am highly thankful to my blog readers who contact me one after another their query and then I need to focus on such institutes and then I need to write them in details after doing due diligence. 

I request my readers including those friends from HR fraternity, my returning blog reader, fresh blog readers and many to please go through my following articles:




If you are looking for a distance learning programmes (any programme not completed by attending a regular college is a distance learning programmes), you must read this








Now, coming back to the point about IIMT Ahedabad, let me explain why is it fake. 
If you go through above articles, you may note the following

1. Only a University can offer a degree programmes, If anybody offer the course who are not a university, such degree is a fake as institute awarding them are fake. Only government, parliament and state legislature can start a university. Any individual or university cannot start a university without passing an Act in the state legislature or in a parliament. 

2. AICTE has banned distance learning engineering diploma, degree and masters programme. So, even if a university offer such programmes, they are invalid. 

Following is the address of the institute. I am deleting contact no and web URL as I do not want this institute to get an opportunity to advertise
International Institute of Management and Technical Studies
Address : 56 B-Wing, Pariseema Complex,
Bodyline Cross Road,
C.G.Road,
Ahmedabad - 9.


Why is this institute is fake?
First of all, this institute is not a college. Second, this institute is not affiliated to any university and even not a study centre of any recognized university.

Second, Like other any master scam and fake institute, it too has focussed on the programmes which is high in demand- engineering and management. 
This institute has not mentioned from which university it is offering the programmes. Further, none of the universities are allowed to offer engineering courses then how this institute is offering the same. ?

Third, it is making fool to people. When people are cross verifying after reading my blog, 

It says that it has Gujarat government's approval. However, it is making fool to general people by showing a MoU (Memorandum of Association) during vibrant Gujarat Summit. MoU is even not a contract, it is just a proposal signed. Even when you decide to sell your flat to somebody, with or without accepting any token amount. Tell me simply, does that mean you have already sold your flat to that person and the person is the owner?

Please see following image about MoU


This MoU is not an agreement, approval from state government about this institute. You may search definition of MoU as well as take help of a legal expert you know. 

Now, see How this institute is misleading people by the fake UAE government recognition status. You must be aware that in order to get job abroad on the basis of qualification, you must have the degree attested by the Ministry of HRD. In terms of central universities, the degree will be attested by ministry of HRD, Government of India. In terms of a state university or a private university or a deemed university, the degree will be attested by the general administration department or education department. In no case, any government will not attest a certificate which does not fall under the category. For example, if you complete a degree from Bharati Vidyapeeth and even if you stay at Sikkim, you have to apply to education department of Maharashtra Government to attest the same. 
IIMT is not a university, hence its degree will not be attested at any cost. While sending email to students, it is sending just a page which has stamp and not the complete document. Look at this image:




Where is the full document which can tell what is it? This can be an application for a license, can be a bail, can be anything but definitely not attestation. If IIMT would have been a recognized institute, it should have posted a full documents with attestation from Gujarat Government. 

It claims it is an autonomous institute, is it?
No. Even an autonomous institute needs UGC approval. Only UGC has authority to grant autonomous institute status. Basically, an autonomous institute is an institute under a state or a central university who has enough infrastructure and capability to deliver the programme  on its own, so UGC grants them autonomy, more funds so they define their syllabus, conduct it as per the way but ultimately, students will get marksheet from a university only. 


Misleading affiliation and recognition
On its website it mentions affiliation from UKAS (what is that?), Gujarat Textile Association (how a textile association can be a affiliation for an educational institute), Gujarat Knowledge society (what is it). An institute must have affiliation from a university and from nothing else. 

It has cleverly accepted it is a fake institute in its FAQ page.
If you read its FAQ page for which you need to search a lot, you will find that it has accepted that it is a fake institute. 

Please read following excerpts
Q.1)    Is IIMT approved by AICTE &/or UGC ?
 
Ans : 1. Sir we have not taken the AICTE approval. There are more than a few reasons behind that. First of all they have certain norms like to run an institute you should have 5 acres of land in an urban area or 25 acres in a non urban area.
2. Also your classroom size should be this much and you should have a bank balance of in crores. Since we are running distance learning programs we do not need this much of land.
3. Secondly if we take there approval we will lose out on a lot of our sturdy points for example we will not be able to provide you with fast track education as the duration would be decided by AICTE.
4. As we also provide 100% (JPA) Job Placemen Assistance, we might not be in the position to provide such facility to our students under AICTE.
5. As far as UGC is concerned, they give grants to a university and we are not a university.

My comments: This is completely misleading. In fact UGC does not have rights to grant any institute a status of university except deemed university. All universities must be established by passing an Act either in a parliament or a state legislature. Further, in a remote part, 25 acre land cost hardly 25 lakhs which is not a high. This institute, on its MoU signed with Gujarat government talks about investing 300 crore. So is the amount high?
 
Q.2)    How can you give MBA in 6 Months ?
 Ans : The program is for 2 years, however we give this facility to our students wherein hey can finish the program any time between 6 month and 2-years. Generally if you pursue MBA from some other institute and even if you finish your studies in 13 months you can give your exam only after 24 months. In our case if you finish your studies in 13 months, you can give your exams and get your certifications done; as a result you are saving your own 11 months. The duration of the program utterly depends on the student caliber.

My comments: Again a big fake. Can you complete MBA in just 5 subject and 6 months, never. Every degree must follow UGC guideline on minimum duration i.e. a degree should be of minimum 3 years and a masters minimum 2 years. 
 
Q. 3)    Will the companies accept 6 months MBA ?
 
Ans : Sir, first of your entire certificate will not indicate that you have finished your program in 6 months or 8 month. It just indicates the &date you have finished your program. Secondly today in the corporate world, more of the working professions are interested in fast track duration courses to save their time, money and efforts; and the companies too. Companies even promote such fast track courses for their employee as part time courses.

My comments: No. most of the organisation not even accept your application for a job. Ask them to provide name of 5 such well known employer. I know they will never
 

 
Q. 7     But will this certificate be valid in govt jobs as I think they need the candidate to be a MBA from a AICTE approved university  only ?
 Ans : 1. Sir I can assure you that this certificate will be valid anywhere as far as jobs are concerned.
2. If you allow me to send you a copy of our prospectus, you will find a list of people who have finished their program from our institute and many of them are in govt sector.

My comments: For government jobs, they even do not accept a degree of a known reputed state university if the degree is awarded by violating UGC and AICTE norms then how will they accept it?  Please read my following article how a Punjab Babu lost his job due to submission of KSOU degree which did not have AICTE and DEB approval
 

Q. 12) How many specializations do you offer ?
 Ans : We offer more than 100 specializations; hence we have a course for almost everyone.

My comments: Even top institute like IITs, IIMs do not have capacity to offer so many specialisation. Government must award them Bharat Ratna/
 

 
I hope, I have been able to clarify on this subject and open your eyes. Please ask if you have any query. Please do not become victim of such fraud institutes.  This institute can send me a legal notice and I am open to debate anywhere - open forum, court of law with this institute. This is another Jaro and institutes like them. Please beware.

  1. Thanks for the excellent service provided, I am eagerly waiting to hear from you. I have done my Diploma in Production Engineering with 20 yrs experience. Want to do BTech , by lateral entry to Dr.Bhabhasaheb Ambedkar Technology University ,Lonere . My Question (1) is it valid? (2) institute Imperial www.iime.co.in has told me can give lateral entry from above university and will send papers to me I have to write and send back . Is it ok? They told my name will be in websites of university with roll no is it ok ? Even can get previous years dated certificate .Please comment if ok .Please email also to this and asv@rediffmail.com .Please do reply urgent .also please give your contact details

    1. Have you called the university and check with them whether they have any relationship with this said fake institute IIME?
      Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University is a state university and I have never heard them part of any degree scam.
      Please visit http://www.dbatuonline.com/contact.php there is no provision of online degree verification
      This institute will take money from you and will issue a fake certificate which will never be verifiable. You will lost your money, time, reputation and many be arrested for forgery too. Do not believe them. Even if you still want to go ahead, Please make all the payment through Demand Draft strictly in favour of "Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University, Lonere"
      I am sure your agent will never accept such mode of payment. You must fill the form of the university only, and you must submit by yourself and take receipt.
      Lateral entry is allowed in almost all colleges in India for engineering. However, none of the institute can offer course such where you can write exam at home. It should be a full time on campus degree only. If you want to get a fake degree, then isn't it economical idea to grab one of your colleague's marksheet and certificate, make colour photocopy and replace with your name? Fake is always fake anyway so how does it matter to you?

I also herd of Khatu Shyam Institute of Mngt and technology they offer Bachelor Program in Engineering is it valid if I do that can I do further MTech from recognised university. Please advice

    1. Hi,
      Thanks. The institute you said "Khatu Shyam") is also a fake institute.. It is exactly same as these two institutes IIME and IIMTS. I suggest, better you should opt for BITS Pilani's 4 years BS programme (if you are looking highly recognized industry accepted, but government not approved programmes and if cost is not an issue for you). I am going to cover up the same in a different article. BITS is not authorised to offer distance education programme, but they are offering BS. They have not kept the name as BE/ B.Tech hence there is no question of AICTE approval. If you are looking for a degree which industry recognize and value, then this is a good choice.

  3. Thanks for your reply. From your reply I stopped enrolling in the fake university. Now as I have completed my Diploma in Production Engineering with 21yr experience, please advise as I want to upgrade my qualifications and as told by you if I opt for BITS can I do MTech from other recognised university? or can I get admission for MBA in production Pondichery university? Or please guide as I want to do by correspondence Degree .Please guide with university applicable with web address. Thanks

    1. opt for BS from BITS

      Yes, you will be eligible for MBA in distance as well as full time after completing BS
      If you want to do a degree and engineering degree is not your preference then opt BBA in distance mode from Pondicherry University from pondiuni.edu.in

  28. Thank you sir. I am also thinking that Acharya Nagarjuna University is safe because it is state government run university. I was confused due to their syllabus. Acharya Nagarjuna University has old and traditional type of syllabus which is not at par with today's new development where NIMS university has new age syllabus with new subjects of genetics and bioinfermatics. But I accept your opinion because state university is better than private university ( except some private or deemed universities but they are very few ).
