“Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) will launch a new course related to online content blocking,” said Arindham Chaudhry, the Dean of the institute.
The tagline for this particular course will be ‘Dare to think beyond DoT’ which is in accordance with their existing tagline ‘Dare to think beyond the IIM’s’. Mr.Chaudhry himself will take all the classes for this particular course as he has a huge amount of experience in this field.
When asked about the controversy regarding the fact that the degrees from IIPM are not certified by the UGC, he explained that this course is unique and unlike other courses in the institute, this degree is recognised and certified by the DoT (Department of Telecommunications) itself. Also students will have to intern at the DoT office for a month and they will have to block 5 URL’s to get through.
“We have already tied up with the DoT, the Congress government, and a few other companies for placement. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for students because online content blocking will drastically rise in the next few years. There is a huge market for this course,” he concluded.
