IRMA is based in Anand, a wee hamlet of a town in the west Indian state of Gujarat. Hailed as the "Milk capital of India", it is strategically located between Ahmedabad (85 Kilometers North-West) and Vadodara (35 Kilometers South), on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai National Highway 8. Anand is accessible via road and by rail as it is on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai broad-gauge route. Anand experiences extreme weather conditions with temperatures ranging between 5 and 25 degrees Celsius during winters (November to February) and between 35 and 40 degrees during summers (March to June). IRMA's sylvan surroundings, however, ensure slightly lowered temperatures within the campus.
Although it is a small town, Anand is one of the most important towns in Gujarat. The population of Anand is around 2,090,276. The town is governed by the Anand Municipal Corporation which takes care of the general upkeep of the town and its basic medical facilities. The Municipal Corporation also runs a local transport facility through its small fleet of buses. In addition, Gujarat Agricultural University runs its own fleet of buses that ply between the railway station and the University campus. Besides, three-wheeled auto-rickshaws - with their ever-growing numbers - may be hired for moving about in town. Tourist taxi services too, while readily available, are mostly employed for inter-city travel over local.
