About Me

Welcome to the Saravade web home. Here, you will find information about me, my family, my interests and ideas important to me.

First, about me. I am a Civil-and-Environmental-Engineer-turned-IPS officer-turned-security professional. While in the IPS, I served in the state police departments of Jammu and Kashmir and West Bengal, before moving to Mumbai on deputation to the Central Bureau of Investigation in 1996. In CBI, I worked at Mumbai and Jaipur. In 2004, I joined the School of Management at IIT Bombay for a PhD programme, which ultimately I did not complete due to changed priorities. My Ph.D. page, describing the programme details is here.

During 2005-2008, I worked with NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Service Companies), as Director, Cyber Security and Compliance, on a three-year deputation from Public Services. In 2008, I took voluntary retirement from the Indian Police Service (IPS) and joined the private sector as General Manager, Financial Crime Prevention, ICICI Bank, where I worked till July 2011. For two years after that, I worked as Director, Citi Security and Investigative Services, South Asia, before becoming an independent advisor to Ernst & Young and Citibank, from September 2014.
