JIMS shared thoughtful concerns over the serious issue of reservation
at a debate on "Aarakshan"

Contrary to their casual demeanor, the young and dynamic students of
JaganNath Institute Management Sciences (JIMS), an institute of
excellence in the field of management studies and technical education,
today voiced their opinions and shared thoughtful concerns over the
serious issue of reservation at a debate on "Aarakshan", director
