Sweet ! Girlfriend behind the success of UPSC Topper, Kanishka Kataria

New Delhi, April 06: The UPSC today announced that Kanishka Kataria, a BTech from IIT Bombay, has topped the civil services final examination.

While he is still can’t stop pinching himself over his grand success, Kanishka Kataria thanked his girlfriend (in addition to others) for him topping the civil services final examination.

“It’s a very surprising moment. I never expected to get the 1st rank. I thank my parents, sister & my girlfriend for the help & moral support. People will expect me to be a good administrator & that’s exactly my intention,” Kanishka Kataria, an IIT Bombay student, told news agency ANI.

This is probably the first time that a UPSC topper has thanked their girlfriend/boyfriend for their success in the UPSC final examination.

The UPSC also announced Srushti Jayant Deshmukh as the topper among women candidates securing an overall fifth rank.
