A graduate from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, Aditya pursued Dual Degree BTech/MTech Program after which he took a job with a private company in Bengaluru at 40 lakh package per annum. “After having worked for a year and a half, he made up his mind to appear in civil services,” said his proud father.

However, in his first attempt, he prepared for the UPSC while working in Bengaluru. In his first attempt, Aditya could not clear the prelims. Later, Aditya decided to quit his lucrative job and seriously prepared for UPSC 2022. He cracked the exam and was selected for Indian Police Service.

“He always wanted to become an IAS. Aditya took a call to appear in the UPSC 2023 exam. He told us that he is writing UPSC 2023 for the last time. We are proud that his dream has come true. Both me and my wife supported taking the tough call of quitting the job,” said his father.

Aditya had his schooling at City Montessori School, Aliganj branch and passed class 12 in 2014. It was in that year he cracked JEE and got enrolled at IIT Kanpur. Jyoti Kashyap, proud principal of the school said it is heartening that a past pupil of the school has topped the civil service exam which is considered to be the toughest exam in the country.

In 2022, Shruti Sharma of Bijnor district in Uttar Pradesh has topped the UPSC 2021 examination.
