About Us

The North Eastern Regional Centre of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) started functioning from August 8, 2011 from a rented accommodation provided by the Mizoram University in Aizawl, the capital city of the state. The present permanent campus was inaugurated by Hon’ble President of Bharat Smt. Draupadi Murmu on November 3, 2022. Eight-acre land for the present campus was acquired by the IIMC through an MoU with the Mizoram University. Today, the Regional Centre stands on its own with a large academic building with a studio, auditorium, library, hostel and staff quarters. Unlimited power back-up, water supply and mess facility are available in the campus. However, expansion activities are going on for constructing a new hostel, staff quarters and other facilities in the Centre.
 
Initially, the Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism (English) course was introduced in Centre in 2011. Now, in 2022, a new course, Post Graduate Diploma in Digital Media, has also been started. Like other PGD courses offered by the IIMC, both these courses are of one year duration divided into two semesters. Both these programmes have received very enthusiastic response from the students. Presently, there are 20 seats in English Journalism and 20 seats in Digital media. However, the number of seats in both these courses have been increased to 30 seats in each course from the academic session 2024-25.
 
The IIMC leaves no stone unturned to ensure all required facilities for all round development of the students, be it academic, sports or cultural activities. The scenic and tranquil campus provides a perfect atmosphere of studies coped up with different media organisations in the not so far city of Aizawl for practical and hands-on experience. The city of Aizawl houses various sister organisations of IIMC under the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting including Press Information Bureau (PIB), Central Bureau of Communication (CBC), Doordarshan, All India Radio, etc, which are available for hands-on experience for the IIMC students.
