Professor (Public Administration) at LBSNAA

In July 2012, I left XLRI to join The Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy for Administration in Mussoorie as a proud servant of the Government of India. LBSNAA is the apex training institute of civil servants in India. The time had come to invigorate my interests in research and training.

At LBSNAA I primarily designed and taught the Management Module for Civil Service Officers.

 My Work at LBSNAA


I took few sabbaticals over the years. The first was a short sojourn with the SP Jain Center for Management (SPJCM) in 2007-08, and recently to the Lal Bahadur Shastri National School of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussoorie (2012-14).
