21st March, 2020: Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) is happy to report that all the three students – Anshul, Khushbu and Gagan Saiprasad, who were returning from an exchange programme, are back safe in India. The students had faced tense moments when Air France cancelled the Paris-New Delhi flight and they were stuck at CDG airport.
We are with the nation as part of the Covid-19 lockdown, with the utmost concern of the health and safety of all our stakeholders. We are enabling employees to work from home, providing accommodation for out of campus essential staff (to whom we are very grateful), moving some classes and interviews to online mode, and using technology to stay connected and productive.
Important Announcement – EasyShiksha has now started Online Internship Program “Ab India Sikhega Ghar Se”
Once the students reached out, IIMB resources started providing support. The Indian Embassy in Paris, which was contacted, provided reassurance to the students. IIMB is thankful to the Embassy. IIMB arranged for their tickets from CDG on an alternative flight and ensured their speedy return. They landed in Mumbai around 3 pm on Saturday and are now on their way to their respective homes. Home quarantine has been advised.

Faculty and the community have been concerned and empathetic with the unfolding situation and are engaged in how best to reach out, including financially.
A research interest group of 14 faculty members are working on various dimensions of Covid-19 impact such as internet governance and digital payment, agriculture/food supply chain, agriculture/food processing, transportation and warehousing, corruption and inefficiency in service delivery, behavioural issues, and more.
At IIMB, we are closely monitoring the evolving situation of outbreak of the coronavirus and related travel restrictions, and adjusting plans for programmes as events warrant. The situation is being monitoring by an empowered Steering Committee .
