About the Institute

Ideal Institute of Management and Technology was established in the year 1999 under the auspices of New Millennium Education Society. The institute is affiliated to Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi, and its professional courses in Law and Business Administration are recognized by Bar Council of India and Government of NCT, Delhi. Being a NAAC accredited institution, it melds state of the art infrastructure with quality in education as its paramount principle.

The aim of the institute is to cultivate in its students high moral standards coupled with academic excellence to promote market oriented skill development and up-gradation that would help in serving the needs of the society.

In pursuit of its mission to grow as an abode of all round excellence, the institute also disseminates a wide and varied array of publications ranging from journals to newsletters and magazines of repute.

About the Online National Debate Competition

Rakesh Aggarwal Memorial National Debate Competition is organized annually by Ideal Institute of Management and Technology on contemporary issues of legal significance. To add to the panache of this year’s event, we are delighted to inform you that Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh (Founder & Former Vice-Chancellor, National Law University, Delhi, New Delhi & NALSAR, Hyderabad) has gracefully consented to be the Chief Guest of the programme.

The competition aims to provide a platform to students from various institutions to come together and voice their opinions while augmenting their oratory skills along with their legal rationale. It also sets forth an unparalleled opportunity for students to engage in insightful and real-time dialogue on topics of contemporary significance.

With an exponential rise in developments in the field of Law, preparation for any competition cannot be confined to an isolated theoretical understanding of text. A holistic and comprehensive conceptual understanding is an intrinsic component towards preparation for the future. This one day online national debate is specifically designed to cater to the current needs of problem-based learning and provides a forum to the students to develop skills like argument framing, logical thinking, mental agility, and immaculate oration.

The Debate competition will be conducted online on September 22, 2021, through Cisco WebEx platform.
