The IIMC institute was set up under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, on 17 August 1965. IIMC is known for offering quality training in journalism and falls into a elite institution.

The notion of bestowing deemed university status upon the IIMC is not a recent one. The plan received approval from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry in 2016.

Earlier in 2018 during a review meeting of higher education institutions by Niti Aayog, there was a voice to merge the IIMC with either Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Centre for Media Studies or Jamia Millia Islamia’s AJK Mass Communication Research Centre.
