Charm of IAS forces young railway probationers flee IIM campus

A DESIRE to become IAS officers has forced many railway probationers currently undertaking a management training programme in IIM-Calcutta flee the campus as civil services (preliminary) examination, 2009 are scheduled to be held on May 17, 2009, sources in Rail Bhawan told Babu Blogger. This has upset babus in Rail Bhawan who championed the cause of introducing for the first time a 12-week-long executive general management programme for 60 Indian railway officers as a part of the 18-month-long programme for railway probationer officers. The Board had earlier commissioned the IIM-C to conduct the course for the new recruits. Yet, railway officials chose to flee from the IIM campus as trying their luck for entering the elite IAS cadre is much more satisfying than taking lessons on economics, human resource, public policy, behavioural science, marketing, ethics and finance at the IIM.
