Lucknow / July 27, 2020
To mark its Foundation Day, the premier Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Lucknow today inaugurated a Medicinal Plant Garden in its campus with plans to expand it to nearly a hectare in a year’s time span.
The foundation of the Institute was laid 36 years back on July 27, 1984. Today, IIM Lucknow is ranked 4th in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking of the union ministry of Human Resource Development among the institutions of higher education in India.
“Sustainable practices along with health and immunity are the most important agenda today globally. This Garden is just a step in this direction. It is a way of creating awareness about the medicinal plant species and also a way of conserving Rare, Endangered and Threatened (RET) species,” Institute Director Dr Archana Shukla said on the occasion.
