Considered India’s toughest exam, the Civil Services Exam (CSE) conducted by UPSC demands unwavering dedication and extensive study from thousands of aspiring candidates every year. Unfortunately, only a handful of aspirants emerge victorious and fulfill their IAS, IPS, IFS and IRS dream.

One of them is IPS Kajal from Uttar Pradesh whose hardwork and consistency paid off. Inspired by Tina Dabi, Kajal, a daughter of a sub-inspector has successfully cleared CSE in her first attempt. She secured an impressive AIR-485 to become an IPS officer.

Kajal hails from Ranipur near Manikpur in Chitrakot district of Uttar Pradesh, DNA India reported. She completed her schooling at St. Michael’s School and scored 95% in class 10 and 91% in class 12. She then went on to complete her graduation in History, Political Science and Economics with 81% in the Arts stream.

Inspired by IAS Tina Dabi, she also wanted to become a civil servant. She sacrificed all her social life, gave up her social media use and studied for 8-10 hours every day. Meanwhile, she also pursued her MA through IGNOU. 

With her unshakable perseverance, she successfully cracked the UPSC exam in the very first attempt. Her dedication and will power is a beacon of hope for those who have failed in the exam this year.
