Ishita Kishore, 26, who graduated from Delhi University’s Sri Ram College of Commerce secured the the All India Rank (AIR) 1. A resident of Greater Noida, Ms. Kishore said she was overjoyed with her performance, as in her first two attempts, she could not clear the preliminary round.
Ms. Kishore credited her success to the unconditional support her family gave her. She worked as an adviser at a multi-national firm for two years before she decided to prepare for the exam. “The corporate sector had many opportunities but, ultimately, I realised that my passion lies in public service. I am looking forward to working with my team and contributing to the greater development of the nation,” she said.
A total of 933 candidates have been recommended by the Union Public Service Commission for appointment to the IAS, IFS, IPS and Central Services – Group A and Group B.
