In a classic move of glocalization, GARP has extended the Early Bird Registration Deadline for the FRM Part I and Part II Exams this November. Here is an excerpt of the email that was sent to all registered GARP members today –

Dear GARP Member,
Due to the ongoing power outages in India, GARP has extended the Early Registration deadline for the November 2012 FRM and ERP Exams for India-based candidates.
Early Registration will now close on Thursday, August 2nd at 11:59 PM EDT.

We had come to know about the power outages in Northern India very recently. To see a global institution postpone their deadlines in response to such an event is a great thing. It talks about the importance of India for GARP and Risk Management.
