Ministry of Railways on Thursday (May 7) refuted media reports that the Indian Railways Institute for Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (IRIMEE) is being shifted from Jamalpur to Lucknow. “Any assertions to this effect are incorrect and misleading and do not have the approval of the Ministry of Railways,” clarified a statement by the ministry.
It has been reported in media that it is being planned to shift Indian Railways Institute for Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (IRIMEE), from Jamalpur to Lucknow, the statement said.
“In fact, the Ministry of Railways has planned to enlarge the activities of IRIMEE to also impart educational programs in transportation technology and management. Several additional educational programs starting with 1-year Diploma courses at Jamalpur are planned to be introduced for which curriculum development and design are underway,” it said.
It further said, “Indian Railways is very proud of the history and legacy of IRIMEE and there is no question of it being transferred from its present location. In fact, all efforts are to further strengthen it and enlarge its role at the existing location.”
