A large number of candidates prepare for Civil Services Examination with vernacular languages and among these, Hindi medium is next to English only that candidates keep as medium of writing examination. But, in recent years, the Hindi medium result has not been great and even this year CSE 2015, there are only two Candidates among top 100 ranks (62nd Anuradha Pal and 99th Rank Gaurav Singh Sogarwal).
Now, for last 4-5 years, all is not well with Hindi medium candidates and the moment UPSC tweaked the Exam-pattern; first, in 2011 with changes in Preliminary Examination and later, in 2013 Main Examination pattern got changed and Hindi /vernacular language candidates took the maximum hit.
Comparing last three years Hindi medium result (after Main Examination pattern change) there is not much has changed.
In CSE 2013, first rank with Hindi medium was Santosh Kumar Rai (AIR 107), in CSE 2014 Nishant Jain (AIR 13) hogged the limelight and now, in CSE 2015 Anuradha Pal (AIR 62) has emerged as top-most ranker.
For Anuradha Pal, it was her seventh attempt and she did it with History as optional subject.
Earlier, she was selected in CSE 2012 (AIR 451) that got her Indian Revenue Service (IRS-IT)
Next top rank with Hindi medium is Gaurav Singh Sogarwal (AIR 99). He achieved this success with Literature of Sanskrit Language as optional subject.
As far as our search goes these are only two successful candidates in top 100. And in next 100, we are able to spot only one.
Premsukh Delu (AIR 170) from Rajasthan is one more successful candidate with Hindi medium. It was his second attempt and optional subject was History.Last Update Wednesday 6th July 2016
