681754-upscNEW DELHI: Deshal Dan Charan, a resident of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan is making headlines after he cleared the Union Public Service Commission exam on Friday. The small town resident secured the 82nd rank for himself when the UPSC results for 2017 were declared on Friday.
Hailing from Sumalai village of Jaisalmer, Deshal Dan has had humble beginnings. His father Kushaldan Charan is a tea seller in Jaisalmer and has struggled through most of his life.
He had to take loans to make sure his son completes his education. With hardly any good institutes for higher education in Jaisalmer, Deshal Dan’s selection for the civil services is a moment of pride for the entire village. Not just his father and family, the entire village is joining Deshal Dan in celebrating this moment.
A total of 990 candidates including 750 men and 240 women have been recommended by the Commission for appointment to various services. Of the candidates recommended for appointment, 476 are from the general category, 275 from OBC, 165 from scheduled caste and 74 from scheduled tribes category.
The civil services examination is conducted annually in three phases – preliminary, main and personality test or interview – to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others. Zeenews.
