IIM Rohtak PGP Selection Criteria 2018 – 2020 – This document summarizes the approach of IIM Rohtak to preparing the Admission List for its 9th PGP Batch (2018-20) (The approximate batch size is 240). IIM Rohtak (IIM-R) reserves the right to modify any part of this document including the various criteria and cut offs mentioned at any time till the actual admission process for the batch is completed.

The basic objective of IIM-R’s admission process is to identify meritorious candidates for admission under each category of admission, viz., General, OBC, SC, ST and PWD/DAP. While merit is the prime consideration, the Institute recognizes a possibility of skewed student structure in favour of male gender and engineering and related subjects at graduation in the normal course. Hence, it strives to ensure a better balance in opportunities among different subject streams and genders. It is also part of IIM Rohtak’s approach to duly recognize academic consistency and industrial experience.
