Mysuru IAS officers’ issue will now be sorted out by CM: Minister


Mysuru, June 5 | Mysuru district in-charge minister, S.T. Somashekar on Saturday said that Karnataka chief Minister, B.S. Yediyurappa would resolve the ongoing IAS officers tussle between Mysuru deputy commissioner, Rohini Sindhuri and Mysuru City Corporation commissioner, Shilpa Nag in a day or two.

Somashekar told reporters here, “Wait for a day or two, you will know how this issue will be resolved.”

He added that no government would allow sincere and hardworking officers to resign on ground of ‘humiliation’ and steps would be taken to convince her to withdraw her resignation. “The state government is morally obligated to protect the innocent,” he said.

On Friday, Chief Secretary P. Ravikumar, who was in Mysuru to take stock of Covid preparedness, flatly said that he was not aware of MCC Commissioner Shilpa Nag’s resignation nor has he received the resignation letter yet.

However, it is reliably learnt that both warring IAS officers have submitted reports of more than 100 pages each (their side of story) on happenings, to the Chief secretary, which is still under wraps. Nag on her part tried to submit her resignation to Ravi Kumar in person, which was turned down by the CS.

On Thursday evening, MCC commissioner, Shilpa Nag had announced her resignation from IAS service alleging that Mysuru deputy commissioner Rohini Sindhuri humiliated her at every step.

However, these allegations were flatly denied by Sindhuri through a statement to media, stating Nag’s accusations “are contrary to the real facts.”

While flashing an 18-page handwritten resignation to the media, Nag had said that there is a limit to one’s patience and nobody can stop when it bursts. “I have been under severe mental pressure for the last week. I am proud of the people of Mysuru and I am deeply pained as I am being targeted in the name of caste. The DC is egoistic and no district should see a DC like her (Sindhuri),” she had hit out.

Rebutting Sindhuri’s allegations, Nag claimed that the DC (Sinduri) had ordered her not to accept Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds. “An Assistant Environment Engineer in the MCC took the initiative to raise funds under CSR and over Rs 12.3 crore has been collected so far and with that funds, the MCC is managing the pandemic including the setting up of Covid Mitra and other campaigns that are mainly focussed on all the 65 wards. But the DC has targeted Assistant Environment Engineer (AEE) and is preparing a file to suspend him,” she alleged.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
