Five IAS officers to climb Mt Everest

Jaipur, July 24, 2013, DHNS:

State bureaucracy is stretching its limits a little too high. Five IAS officers from Rajasthan have found a place in the Indo-Nepal Mount Everest Civil Service expedition scheduled for next year.

The officers are Rajesh Yadav, managing director of the Skill and Livelihood Mission, Roli Singh, senior deputy director at Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy of Administration, Mussorrie, Preetam B Yashwant, district collector, Rajsamand, Neeraj K Pawan, district collector, Bharatpur, and Manjit Singh, principal secretary at the social justice and empowerment department.

The bureaucrats are gearing up to unfurl the tricolour at the world’s highest peak in May next year. The expedition is for over a period of two months.

According to sources, some organisations promoting mountaineering and the central government will pay Rs 18 lakh for each individual participating in the expedition.


Preetam B Yashwant said, “I am very excited about the event. I am a trained mountaineer. When the proposal came, I said yes without batting an eyelid.”
