Controversies[edit]

  • In 2005, the Government of India informed that the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) had withdrawn approval for Amity Business School's PGDM (full-time) and PGDM (part-time) courses. AICTE decided subsequently to transfer the then students of Amity Business School to neighbouring institutions; the decision was taken up after several visits by an AICTE Expert Committees to the Amity Business School in Noida, which found "serious deficiencies and violation of Norms and Standards". The institution was found conducting a "large number of unapproved courses in the same premises," some that required mandatory AICTE approval. A Live Mint-Wall Street Journal report in 2008 confirmed that "AICTE was accurate in observing facilities and infrastructure intended for AICTE-approved courses were being utilized for other unapproved courses." The institute had contravened building laws and also did not have the required "built-up area" as required by AICTE norms. Additionally, the lack of transparency in the institution's admission process and charging of "exorbitant fees" were also quoted as reasons for the withdrawal of the approval.[3][4]
  • As per a 2009 Central Information Commission appeal ruling, German judicial authorities have issued arrest warrants against Ashok Kumar Chauhan and Arun Kumar Chauhan, directors of the Amity group of institutions on charges of fraud in Germany. The Interpol too has issued Red-Corner notices; the Ministry of Home Affairs in India has been requested to act on this issue "in accordance with law". The Union Minister for External Affairs in India has accepted that Germany wishes to prosecute Ashok Chauhan and Arun Chauhan and that they have sought legal assistance for extraditing the two.[4][5][6]
  • In September 2006, Outlook magazine apologized to its readers for a paid advertisement released by Amity Business School in its magazine and clarified that Amity Business School had not been part of the Outlook B-school survey. The report confirmed that "the school has been refused approval by the AICTE which has been challenged in the courts."[7]
