How did you feel after the declaration of the result?
I never expected to top the exam but always believed in my hard work. Scoring a top rank in the Civil Services Examination is a different feeling altogether. I’m still surprised.
What inspired you to pursue civil services?
My father and other family members inspired me to join civil services. The way my parents raised me even when I was in the village was an example to others. This inspired me to work for the welfare of the rural people. I attempted civil services exam for the first time in 2018 after graduating from IIT-Bombay. Serious attempt was made in 2019 after one and a half year of preparation. I had secured AIR 290 in 2019.
Whom did you call immediately after the declaration of results?
I first talked to my father and told him that I have topped the exam. He didn’t believe it at first.
What is the secret of your success?
In my third attempt, I limited my curriculum and sources of information. I took a break from training to write the paper. While training in Pune, I prepared for the interview round.
Can you tell us about your background?
I come from a rural background and my father Devanand Singh works in Uttar Bihar Gramin Bank and mother Poonam Kumari is a housewife. I live in joint family. My father always made sure that I never had to face any kind of difficulty. He spent about 50-60% of his income on my and my sister’s education.
What facilities should the state government provide to civil service candidates?
The state is providing cash incentives to the IAS aspirants who are already preparing for the main exam. But I think if Bihar has a dedicated institute to help civil service aspirants, it will go a long way in helping them.
Your message to the candidates?
They should be confident and only mingle with people who can give them positive energy.
