Killing of an Institution: Maharashtra Institute of Labour Studies
There is an unconfirmed report that Maharashtra Institute of Labour Studies, the alma mater of many distinguished HR professionals, is going to be closed down. It has led to a flurry of SMSs and emails.
The institute is a victim of total neglect by the Government authorities which has not allowed it to function at its best. For the last 40 years the institute has consistently failed to attract good faculty. Actually it has not attracted any faculty at all! Notwithstanding that there are several high profile alumni in the profession.
There is a very adverse reaction to this unconfirmed news as MILS [erstwhile Bombay Labour Institute and now LNMLMILS] is an age old institution perhaps of the same vintage as TISS which is trying to reinvent itself. The alumni is reportedly coming together to oppose the closure.
Let us put in all efforts to oppose the move of closure. We need to work on it.
Lets unite and oppose this….
Not fair at all..
count me in too
@Anonymous: Recording a comment in support of a cause and remaining anonymous do not go together.
This is most unfortunate news! Hope the alumni is able to stop this.
what is the present status of the institute?any improvement so far?
I recently took admission in this institute, infrastructure looks old, rugged n sick….. tomorrow is my first day at college, lets hope for the best.
