Best Practice

IIMR has been constantly working to provide for opportunities to students to skill up and parallellydevelopempathetic individuals.

In this direction the two best practices successfully implemented by the Institute are

  1. Skill Improvement Groups/ Special Interest Groups
  2. Green Waves Movement

Best Practice 1 -Skill Improvement Groups

Objectives of the Practice –

  1. To constantly update the knowledge, enrich skills, and bridge the gap between Academics and Industry to make students fit for 4.0 industries ready.
  2. To provide quality education and to enhance the Employability Quotient of the students.

The Context-


The New Education Policy has focussed to make India a knowledge superpower whilepreparingits students with the necessary skills and knowledge. The needs of the industries are dynamic in nature and itis a need for us to change and modify the curriculum, pedagogies, and evaluation proceduresaccordingly.With the transformations taking shape, we are obliged to move towards OBE (Outcome Based Education).

While the companies come for campus or when the students unveil their entrepreneurial ambitions, it is expected that the students possess skills and knowledge at par with thedemands of the challenging market. To address this, IIMR started a new concept in 2018-19 called Special Interest Groups (SIGs)/ Skill improvement Groups which provide certified skill courseson the latest and upcomingdomains and technologies.The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Certification Programs are based on Industry requirements for advancedtechnologies and tools. To enhance industrial knowledge and to keep up with the latest advancements theinstitute has invited/appointed experts from the industry for training.The SIGs are planned in such a manner it becomes a part of the academic learning ladder. Right from the first year SIGs are conducted during academics as a regularpractice.During the situation of Covid-19 when offline conduct of SIGs was not possible, the institute adopted asystem of online training on various software, and technical sessions were conducted wherein expertstrained the students from far-off areas could learn the skills.


The Practice


SIGs are conducted on MS Excel, Design Thinking, Financial Analysis, Country Risk Analysis, Stock Market Analysis (both Fundamental and Financial), R Programming etc are conducted to make the students aware of the latest development in the world of management domains and technology.


The Evidence of Success


Various evidence of success are as follows:

  1. Students are placed in many MNCs and top companies.
  2. Increased participation in various Certificate programs
  3. Improved Employer Feedback

Problems Encountered & Resources Required


  1. Time constraint is a major limitation in implementing various SIGs’
  2. Finding and bringing trained experts from other institutions/ Industry is also very challenging.
  3. Advanced computer peripherals are required.

Best Practice 2: Green Waves Movement


In the pursuit of a balanced development of IIMR students, we are a firm believer that the natural resources be duly respected and judiciously utilized too. Amidst this, it is also needed that the students learn to nurture and be sensitized towards conserving it to the optimum levels.

With this vision, Green Waves” Club was constituted for the Green wavemovement with a core objective of “Learning to live sustainably’ The Club aims to promote awareness not only inside the campus but to the wider world, to inculcate a senseof responsibility towards “Mother Nature” among stakeholders.


IIMR has a lush green campus, where a variety of plants and trees are planted which add aesthetic value to the campus and also prevent soil erosion. This has also conserved biodiversity. The campus is developed as an eco-friendly campus with the mainpurposes of making the campus-Green, Pollution Free, Noise Free and with the facility of WaterHarvesting and escalating the Eco-Social goal of “Go Green”. Every stakeholderis madeaware of theimportance of nature through its “CLEAN AND GREEN” practice.


The 50 acres of lush green sprawling campus has well-maintained greenery and biodiversity. Varieties ofornamental plants are grown with scientific methods of Horticulture. Organic farming is being practicedand crops & vegetables without chemicals are produced to supply in canteen.

  1. Promoting Agro-Forestry-More than 1500 plants have been planted on the campus with the implementation of the green campus policy and by forming a Cluster of Mango trees, Tamarind(Imli)trees, Gooseberry (amla) trees, Custard Apple (Sitaphal)trees, and Guava (Amrud)
  2. Water harvesting and water management –Following Water Conservation Facilities are available in the Institute
    • WaterHarvesting system,
    • Borewell /Open well recharge at various locations.
    • Construction of tanks and bunds
    • Maintenance of water bodies and distribution systemson the campus
  3. Sensitizing Students and other stakeholders- Every year Plantation Drives are organized for newly admitted students. This connects them with the activities of the Green Waves Movement
  4. Cultivating organic vegetables and crops- Since 2018, in order to improve air quality and resource conservation, the institute started the practice of growing organic crops on 10 acres of area which was lying idle and unused to produce food of high nutritional grade in sufficient quantity to provide healthy food & vegetables to students & staff andutilization in canteen also.
  5. Energy EfficientSystem– To keep the environment clean , measures have been taken in the Institute Campus through the use of Solar Enery, LED, CFLs etc in various places. Also the architecture of the buildings are such that all the classes and other rooms are naturally well-lit and airy.
  6. Promoting No Plastic Zone- The Institute has a well drafted “Plastic-Ban” Policy in place, which outlines the practices to be followed in the institutes by students and staff. Proper Signages are placed at relevant places to sensitize students about “plastic ban” in the campus. Different types of dustbins are provided on campus to collect plastic bottles, wrappers, chocolate covers etc. All utensils in the Canteen are of steel and of food grade. It is ensured that no plastic utensils are used in the kitchen either for serving or cooking purposes.

The Evidence of Success–


  1. The air quality of the campus is improved after the plantation of more than 1500plants and trees of various varieties as analyzed through Green Audit Report
  2. Healthy food and vegetables are supplied in the college canteen, which is the ultimate goal of achievement of practicing organic farming on campus.
  3. Water conservation system has increased the ground level water. Also, 7 borewells help cater to the water needs of the entire campus. This has helped to avoid any dependency on external sources of water.
  4. Ban on plastic and placing of dustbins has reduced waste in the campus. Also, the students are sensitized for the same.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required


The main problem of organic farming is less production of food grains and vegetables as compared to chemical farming. So new organic farming techniques are required
