Students should note that IRMA offers a sectoral program and it should be opted only on the basis of ones interest in making a career in this domain.
IRMA will use CAT 2018 / XAT 2019 scores for shortlisting students for admission into Post Graduate Diploma in Rural Management (2019 – 21).
Unlike Last year, IRMASAT will only be conducted for those shortlisted for GD/PI rounds at IRMA campus.
IRMA will be giving two types of GDPI calls to the prospective candidates:
Candidates who fulfill the following criteria can be shortlisted for profile based calls:
Candidates who score above 80 percentile in CAT 2018/XAT 2019 and fall in the Profile based call criteria are eligible to be shortlisted for IRMASAT and GD/PI process.
Candidates who score above 85 percentile in CAT 2018/XAT 2019 and fall in the Non-Profile based call criteria are eligible to be shortlisted for IRMASAT and GD/PI process.

While preparing for this section, a student should focus on issues related to environment, health, culture, food and agriculture, gender equality, social issues pertaining to development, etc.
