Nadini said that one should be confident about oneself and the society should equally support them
Nandini K R, a trainee Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer, from Karnataka, has topped the Civil Services Examination, the results of which were declared on Wednesday by public service recruiter Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). This is the third time in a row where a woman candidate has topped the examination.
Here’s all you need to know about the 2016 UPSC topper:
Hailing from Kembodi village in Kolar district, about 100km from Bengaluru, Nandini is the eldest of the two children of her parents — 56-year-old Ramesh K V and 54-year-old Vimala K V.
She is currently completing her training for IRS at the National Academy of Customs, Excise and Narcotics in Faridabad.
The topper was earlier a civil engineering graduate from MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology in Bengaluru. After clearing her examination in 2014, Nandini was selected for IRS.
After graduation, though Nandini worked in the state public works department as an assistant engineer for two-three years, she always aspired to become an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer and work in the areas of women, empowerment and education.
“I want to join IAS and not IFS (Indian Foreign Service), as I want to be in India and serve the people. Though challenging, I will get an opportunity to learn and work for the people,” Nandini told ANI.(read more)
