  • The prestigious Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) plans to open a branch in Jammu and Kashmir by next year, said an official today. "We are working on the modalities of setting up IIMC's branch in Jammu and Kashmir. If everything works out, we will have an IIMC branch in Jammu and Kashmir by the next academic session of 2012-13," IIMC director Sunit Tandon told to the media. Tandon had a meeting with state government officials in Srinagar on Thursday. "I had a meeting with information and broadcasting ministry joint secretary and chief secretary of Jammu and Kashmir," said Tandon. When asked about the location and number of seats in the proposed institute, Tandon said: "It is too early to say anything about that as we are still discussing this. There will be discussions between both the central and state governments." The institute, which currently has branches in New Delhi and Dhenkanal in Orissa, was set up in 1965 on the recommendation of a team of internationally known mass communication specialists from Unesco and the Ford Foundation.(IANS)
