IN election time,even a typo could cost a lot. The HRD Ministrys typing error in the interim budget led to the announcement in Parliament of an IIM for Rajasthan instead of Chhattisgarh,and has put the department in a tight spot. It is learnt that the inadvertent announcement has given rise to demands from the Congress-led Rajasthan government to create an IIM in the state,besides the IIT already announced last year. With elections just around the corner,Arjun Singhs ministry does not want to make Rajasthan unhappy. It is learnt that they are now exploring ways to squeeze in an IIM for the state.
