    Both are good.
    PGDM is an Institute autonomous program which is approved by AICTE
    MBA is a program which is affiliated to a University.
    Colleges which offer AICTE approved courses will also offer PGDM not MBA, for example XYZ College is affiliated to ABC University they offer MBA course affiliated to that University, the same college is offering AICTE approved course it means they are offering PGDM which is not linked to ABC University.
    Typically if any PGDM is to be equivalent to MBA then the course duration should be 2 years, a 1 year PGDM will not be equal to MBA course.
    Even IIMs, XLRIs doesnt offer MBA degrees they only give PGP Diplom

    MBA degree is generally awarded by the university and is a UGC accredited course. Whereas, a PGDM is an autonomous course conducted by the institute and may not necessarily have UGC recognition. Many govt. jobs also may not recognise it as being equivalent to a Master's degree.
