In the 2018 Civil Services exam, Kanishak Kataria emerged as the topper. Hailing from Rajasthan, Mr. Kataria has many other feathers in his cap. After completing B.Tech. in Computer Science from IIT Bombay, Kanishak Kataria landed a job with a company in South Korea. While working in South Korea he felt that he was earning well but was not able to connect and help people in his own country. So after working in South Korea for one year, Mr. Kataria quit his job and returned to India.
Mr. Kataria also made headlines for crediting his success, among others, to his girlfriend.
Among the 182 women candidates who cleared the exam, Srushti Jayant Deshmukh who secured 5th rank was the topper. Ms Deshmukh hails from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh and is a Chemical Engineer. She graduated from Rajiv Gandhi Prodyogiki Vishwavidyalaya in 2018.
