The classes for the first post graduate programme batch of Indian Institue of Management (IIM), Sirmour, began at Paonta Sahib on Friday.

Though there was a provision of 60 seats in the institute only 22 students were admitted as the decision for starting the classes from this session was not taken on time and neither was it publicised properly. Director of IIM Lucknow Bharat Bhushan, chief administration officer Vishav Ranjan, chief accounts officer Sudhir Chandra, professor Manoj Anand, MLA Kirnesh Jung and Rajiv Bindal were present at the inaugural session.

The classes are temporarily being held at the hired building of Himachal Institute Technology, Paonta Sahib, however the HRD ministry has finalised a site for a campus to come up at Dhalakuan. The BJP government had sanctioned an IIM for Himachal Pradesh in its first budget after which chief minister Virbhadra Singh announced to open it in Sirmaur on August 15 last year.

Chief administration officer Dinesh Saxena said IIM Sirmaur will be mentored by IIM Lucknow which has in the past mentored two other IIM's- Rohtak and Kanshipur.
