Rachit Raj in his first encounter with this most-prestigious examination has secured 3rd rank in civil Services Examination 2013.

At an age when common candidates make-up mind to appear in Civil Services Examination, Rachit has achieved this phenomenal success.

A meritorious student all throughout, Rachit 24, completed B.Tech from VIT (Vellore Institute of Technology) in 2012 and immediately after that made up mind to pursue career in ‘Civil Services’ and commenced serious preparation in December 2012.

To reason out why he picked ‘Civil Services’ as career-choice; Rachit said, “It is all about my personal choice and I always felt that I possess a personality that suitsRachit Raj, 3rd rank; IAS Topper, CSE 2013 career in administration.”

“Looking at the current environment, I am not alone having aspiration to participate in country’s growth and want to be a part of administration; youth in the country is playing a constructive role in the changing surroundings, he added.”

It was not a vague wish; I had a clear vision about what I have to do. I was offered a decent job but, I declined just to chase my dreams. Even, I got admission in MBA with 100 per cent free scholarship but, I preferred to prepare for Civil Services Examination.

Rachit has also been selected in Indian Forest Services Examination 2013 and as he says, “I have been focused on my goal and with God’s grace and blessings of my parents and well-wishers; I cracked Civil Services Examination in my first attempt.

"With this success, I am elated but, I understand it well that now, I will have to work even harder so that I can face challenges effectively and I am able to give back to the society" said Rachit.
