Economic Times, Mumbai – 3/10/98

The Institute of Management Consultants of India (IMCI) has developed a system for certifying consultants. These self-imposed measures evolved by the apex body of management consultants in India are aimed at ensuring clients quality service in line with world standards, said sources.

"While certified consultants from India will be able to practice in other countries which demand certification, the government and industry would do well to circulate information about their needs with regard to consulting services to the members of the IMCI," said Mr. Hiru Bijlani, president, IMCI. "This would enable them to broad base their choice of consultants and assure them of acceptable service standards," he added. By the end of October, 1998, the profession will have batch of management consultants formally certified in India, he said.
