XLRI Dean (Academics) threatens to sue Dr. MM Joshi - HRD minister !!

The authorities at XLRI are also in no mood to oblige. According to Dr E.M. Rao, the dean of the institute, the HR ministry doesn't have any right to recommend any fee structure for their institute.

"For the last 54 years, XLRI hasn't taken a single penny from the government coffers. Even when we ran into some financial trouble 10 years ago, we sought help from our alumni. We earn enough money through company training programmes, educational programmes and consultancy," Rao said. According to Rao, XLRI has already refused the deemed university status because it feared that it might mean a fall in the standard of education. "If Joshi has a point to make about our fee structure, I will meet him in court," Rao added.
