WHEN RAHUL Singh, PCS officer, posted as Additional City Magistrate (ACM) II in the city, walked up to the convocation podium at IIM-L to receive his diploma, a big applause greeted him.

This PCS officer also graduated along with 251 others from IIM-L on Saturday. For two years he was on a sabbatical, having taken leave on the basis of a GO that allowed PCS officers to complete their MBA from an IIM without any loss of pay.

Now sitting pretty with two offers — one from Reliance and other from Price Waterhouse Coopers, Singh is unsure about future plans. “On one side there is money, on the other job security. I am still weighing my options,” Singh said.

Did he actually attend postgraduate programme (PGP) classes at IIM-L for two years? “Oh, yes I did. I joined my duties after my PGP II exams were over on February 18,” he said adding that he found the GO a handy one for those who want to pursue their studies.

“The biggest learning experience has been that organisations have to be strong internally to sustain and survive,” he said. Could he say the same about his present job? “No comments,” he laughs.
