Following the same, the Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM-L) has also deferred its GD-PI for an indefinite period.

Amid coronavirus spread, state governments have shut academic institutions, schools, colleges, and universities. Examinations are postponed, classes are suspended, and universities and schools are shifting to online platforms to conduct lectures and examinations. Many premier management institutes like IIM Indore, IIM Shillong, IIM Ahmedabad, and more have canceled their convocations, deferred events and outside travel to avoid the spread of novel coronavirus.
Meanwhile, MDI has asked applicants to apply for several management courses. The courses include Post Graduate Diploma Programme in Public Policy & Management, Executive Fellow Programme in Management and Fellow Programme in Management (FPM).
