As rightly said he is a travelling Bishop who is travelling most of the time with some or the other responsibilities.   He  is  hard  working  and  has  a  tremendous  memory  which  helps him to remember  the  names  of  each  and  every  member  of  the  Diocese,  each and every work assigned to the people of the Diocese and a matter of fact he also remembers the content of the letter which has been drafted by him.

The Most Rev. Dr. P. C. Singh is a kind hearted generous Bishop who always thinks about the upliftment of not only his diocese but whoever is known to him. He is easily approachable and is a role model for the youth of the diocese. As far as his personal life is concerned he leads a humble and simple life and is dependent upon God's help that equips him to be a “Bishop with a difference”.
