He pursued his passion & completed his engineering. He had done B. Tech in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi.
It was his dream to serve the country & he always wants to contribute towards the growth of the society that is why he decided to go for civil services rather than opting any private job. “The IAS badge gives you the power to contribute to society and work for growth, I want to make a difference in people’s lives,” he said.

Being the first member of his family to join civil services he did not have any guidance before the preparation of the exam. But he never joined any coaching classes for the preparation, he prepared on his own.
