Comma (,) in the names of Institutes[edit]

The names of the Indian Institutes of Management do not contain a comma. Please do not edit the pages and insert commas in the names.

I researched the above statement a little bit and this is the best response so far from my classmate at IIM Lucknow.

Is it Infosys Banagalore & Infosys Chennai or Infosys, Banagalore & Infosys, Chennai?

The IIM is estd by the govt of India and each location gets its management and freedom to operate within a certain guidelines. But each location is an IIM. If you look at the official address, it says:

IIM, Prabandh Nagar, Off. Sitapur Road, Lucknow-226 013.

Therefore, the name is IIM & you are free to put or not put commas when you add the location name to identify the excact institute. The rules of English grammar tend to agree with Mr.Dole and say that you should put a comma.

I think the comma should return. doles 13:55, 7 October 2005 (UTC)
