Dispensation of GMCS-I by merging its syllabus with Orientation Course for 15 days (90 hours) – (14-06-2016)

The Council has decided to dispense with the General Management and Communication Skills (GMCS) – I Course and merge its syllabus with Orientation Programme. Hence forthwith, it will be known as Orientation Course. Accordingly, it has been decided to conduct an Orientation Course with a duration of 15 days (90 hours) with the following modalities:

  • Students enrolling to the batches commencing from July 1, 2016 onwards would be required to undergo Orientation Course for 15 days in accordance with the new syllabus and new guidelines.
  • The fee for 15 days Orientation Course will be Rs.7,000/- (Rupees seven thousand only).
  • Students registered for practical training on or after May 1, 2012 (since the date of commencement of GMCS-I) till December 31, 2014 would be required to undergo GMCS-I uptill December 31, 2016, if not done earlier. Rest all categories of the students who have already completed Orientation Programme (35 hours) are not required to do GMCS-I and will be deemed to have fulfilled the aforestated requirements.
  • The nomenclature of GMCS-II would be changed to GMCS which the students would be mandatorily required to undergo before applying for membership of the Institute.

The aforestated decision would be made applicable for the students w.e.f. July 1, 2016.
