This was her second attempt and she had Medical Science as optional subject.

Indu completed her MBBS in 2013 from Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi.

Indu said, “I was keen to have attempt immediately after graduation; so, with in limited time I had, I tried to cover the syllabus, but some gaps were left. I managed to get a place in the merit-list and got 688th rank in CSE 2014.

However, I feel it has been the stepping stone to help me achieve this feat in my second attempt.”

She comes from a middle-class family; her father Ved Parkash Jakhar is head-constable in Delhi Police and Mother Vidya Jakhar is a homemaker. Her brother Vikas Jakhar is pursuing engineering from IP University.

“I got inspired by Dr. Saloni Sidana (AIR 74, CSE 2013) and her story had highly motivated me to undertake this examination.”

Candid in her talks Indu said, “I found lots of similarities with her and just got in touch with the institute Nirvana IAS Academy where I got the rightful guidance on preparation from beginning till the end. The firm support of Karam sir helped me sail through all the odds that came along my path. He helped me refine as a person.”

When I asked about her choice of making career in ‘Civil Services’, she said, “If u aim big you will have to take greater risks in life. I knew I am taking risk but, I was clear that it provides opportunity to work in diverse fields and contribute to society in a significant way.”
