SC agrees to hear bail plea of wife of close aide of gangster Dubey


New Delhi, Sep 15 | The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear the bail plea of wife of a close aide of gangster Vikas Dubey, killed in police encounter last year in Uttar Pradesh.

Senior advocate Vivek Tankha, representing the wife, contended that she was a minor on the date of incident and been in a detention home for the past one year.

A bench of Justices S. Abdul Nazeer and Krishna Murari agreed to examine the plea.

Tankha, assisted by advocate Sumeer Sodhi, contended before the bench his client was the wrong place and at the wrong time. He cited that she was married to Dubey’s close aide only seven days prior to the incident of July 3.

It argued that she was not named in the FIR, which was registered in the incident, while her husband was named as accused in the FIR. The plea contended that the petitioner was admittedly a minor on the date of incident and got arrested solely because of the fact that her husband was named in the FIR.

It was contended that as per the order of the Juvenile Justice Board, the age of the petitioner on the date of incident was 16 years, 10 months, and 12 days.

Eight policemen were killed by Dubey and his gang members in Kanpur’s Bikaru village on the intervening night of July 2-July 3. After this incident, police launched a massive search operation and several of Dubey’s gang members were killed in separate encounters, which included the petitioner’s husband.

On July 10, Vikas Dubey was killed when a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he allegedly tried to escape from the spot.

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.
