I earned the Organizer badge without having the required reputation, but re-tagging in the editing section. Later, I saw that I have passed the required rep and granted the re-tagging permission.

Is that possible?

Yes, you can earn in with 1 reputation too, While doing editing and if you find that the tags are not properly added by the OP, in that case you can add the proper tag. When this Suggested Edit gets approved, you earn 2 points with the Organizer badge.

So, basically you earn Organizer badge for proper tagging the question.

However it requires 500 reputation to get the Retag questions privilege and see a 'retag' option in the question. Simple editing the tags does not give you any reputation.

do we earn 2 points each time we re-tag? – Darshana Jun 12 '12 at 4:13
thanks,i have updated my answer @DR, kindly check it. – Lucifer Jun 12 '12 at 4:15
I will add to the last part - direct editing of a post (title, tags or body) grants no reputation so after you gain 2K reputation you can no longer gain reputation from edits as you gain the edit privilege. – Shadow Wizard Jun 20 '12 at 6:09
Thank you for adding information @ShaDowWizArd – Lucifer Jun 20 '12 at 6:12
