People selected in FPM and working in PSUs may join hands to share/help for getting study leave from their company  . I am sharing my effort for benefit of all :

 I am working in Central Govt PSU and applied for study leave citing the govt circular

Planning to file RTI to Department of public enterprises to know the status of implementation of above circular in PSUs.

What the other people are doing who got selected and working in PSUs like NTPC/BHEL/SAIL/BSNL etc.

People working in PSU should try to convince their management for implementation of above circular .

I will request to all that please write letters to

Department of public enterprises/ Concerned Ministry of PSU/Ministry of HRD/PMO for implementation of above circular in PSU.

We have right to equality as per Art 14 of constitution and let the govt servant working in PSU may not suffer and may be treated at par with the others.

To resign from their company may not be best option as per my perception.

People may share their application draft/Note sheet Approval Draft/Experience/effort for study leave with each other for benefit of all.

Hi! Does anyone have the answer to this one? Also please explain the answer if possible.. I stillcant wrap my head around why distance covered by only 1man was taken as 3d1.

Two men left simultaneously from two places P and Q. One of them left P for Q and the other Q for P. Both travelled with his own uniform velocity. Having arrived at their destinations, they turned back to their starting points without stopping. First time they met on their onward journey d1 Km from P and the second time ,on their return journey, they met d2 Km from Q.If d is the distance between P and Q ,then find d in terms of d1 and d2.

Ans-3d1 - d2

  • 1) for first time P...................x.................... 1h.
  • @shweta89 the only part missing in your question is that.... 9m.
you just wasted time reading this @guitar_geek 846

1) for first time 


      d1                   d-d1

speed of  p and q are sp and sq 

So,  d1/sp = (d-d1)/sq ...(1)

2) second meeting


   d-d2                d2

eqn is: 

(d1+d-d2)/sq = (d2+d-d1)/sp ...(2)

equate both eqns to get: 

d1/(d-d1) = (d2+d-d1)/(d+d1-d2) 

solve to get d = 3d1-d2

NIPUN SARIN @Nipun008 209
@shweta89  the only part missing in your question is that after their first meeting both persons exchange their speed i.e. 1st person acquired the speed of 2nd one and 2nd person acquired the speed of first one.. because of this we got the equation 

(d1+d-d2)/sq = (d2+d-d1)/sp    for the second time they meet........... must admit even I got confused with the answer but then I Realised what is missing in the question...

X converted NMIMS Mumbai in March, deposited 7.5 lakh.

X then converted MDI Gurgaon in April and is to submit 2.5 lakh to confirm seat and initiate the process of refund from NMIMS.

May 4: Balance (10 lakh). IIM Shillong comes up with the result and X features in the list.

There is no chance that X gives consideration to IIM-S with 10 lakh at risk. Moreover, with not a single penny left and a loan of 7.5 lakh, even initial confirmation fee (say 90,000) is impossible to arrange.

P.S. You can call me X!

@Dante_ftw1, could you elaborate on those rankings?

Saurabh Raina @Dante_ftw1 1,535

@ankurchachra It's quite simple actually, I assume you will be confused with the long term ranking, let me make it simple, IIM tag is preferred by corporate's while job switching or promotions to top management roles in India and Abroad. You can call it herd mentality or just old fashioned perceptions but corporate's prefer IIM tag if you like it or not.

I have a few queries.

1. Do all six IIM's release seperate list and WL, what was the last WL to be converted? and what is it with calls, if someone gets selected or converts after getting WL, does he get a phone call? what if one doesn't answer the call? Finally when can we expect results?

Ketav Patel @risingketav20 13

As to answer some of your questions... 1. Yes they have a separate list. All New IIMs come out with their own list. 2. Results 2nd week of May. 3. And am sorry to say but rest of the questions are stupid. What if I say that if you don't pick up the call you are rejected. Did you see in any institute that they phone each and everyone that Congrats, you have converted. Whatever way they tell you, that will mostly be by e-mail or their portal, they will give you ample time for your answer and to deposit the fees. And wait list is never cleared one by one. That set a fixed date and till then whatever no of students cancel, the same no of wait list are cleared. For this and other things, have patience.

Thanks Jai, I realise then for MBE and MFC one must be minimum 90 percentile to stand a decent chance. Also I would like to know if they give weight-age to experience and are there instances of ppl with 3-4 yrs of workex at MBE , if so does it play out favorably or unfavorably  during placements?

Dude L anyday..FMS doesn't even stand a chance...Its not just the fees or the final placement that should be considered..thats too naïve....A campus life, the IIM tag, will make you feel that u are in a college and not school...moreover there is a lot of interaction, competitions etc b/w that ways you get to interact with the best...So it has to be L .!!
