The cooling off period in India for officials who have worked in public sector units (PSUs) is for a year. During this term, the officials are barred from joining any new businesses or organisations.
The confusion and questions from social media users come as Bhattacharya was back on the job as soon as her cooling off period expired.
As soon as her cooling period expired on October 6 this year, not only was she appointed on RIL but was also appointed by the private equity company Chrys Capital Advisors LLP as an advisor on October 10.
