Retorting to my query why career in ‘Civil Services’ Vinit said, “Everyone aims to have a wonderful as well as empowering career and Civil services provides the most direct platform to bring a transformational change in the society and to serve the people. Along with it, the diversity of the services enticed me to opt for ‘Civil Services’ as a career.

With a positive frame of mind, I begun preparation again for CSE 2015 and proved that my dreams were realistic.
