    His Journey

    His journey for becoming an IAS started in 2012, when he gave his first attempt with Public Administration and Psychology as its optional subjects. But in 2012 as well as in 2013, he was not able to make in the final list.

    In 2013, he was selected in the Punjab PCS and from here his success journey started. In 2014, he was selected in the Civil Services Exam and got 332nd rank.  He was selected in the Indian Revenue Services (IRS) and was an IRS when he gave the attempt of 2015.

    But this time Punjabi Literature was his optional subject. Prior to this selection, he was selected in the Punjab State Services and Civil Services Exam 2014 where he got the Indian Revenue Services.
