IIM controversy

Sir, — P.V. Indiresan's article, "The IIM controversy" (Feb. 26) points out the irrationality of the decision to reduce the fees in the Indian Institutes of Management. The Government could have at least introduced a graded fee structure. It is sad that such `improper' decisions are taken when there are millions of children below the age of 14 who do not have access even to elementary education.

Sir, — It is inconceivable that the institutes' academic standards will decline in the absence of high fees. Corporations that are the direct beneficiaries of business education can make up for the shortfall.

Sir, — Mr. Indiresan's confession about the recommendations he made while on the committee on the All-India Council for Technical Education is shocking. However, his admission that an error indeed occurred while he was at the helm is commendable.
