Karnataka strikes it rich in civil services exam

Candidates from the State have struck it rich in the UPSC examination, this year. Of the 75 candidates from the State who appeared for interview, 45 of them have cracked the exams, said Gudde Gowda, General Secretary, Krashik Sarvodaya Foundation, Delhi.

Two candidates from Dharwad and one from Hubli have cleared the exam.

Gurudatta Hegde topped the list in the State by securing 25th rank. However, it was Dyamappa Ramappa Airani, who scripted a fairytale. Son of a shepherd, Dyamappa was placed at 833 slot in the all India ranking list.

His father Ramappa passed away years ago and mother Mallavva is into farming.
Mallavva wanted her son to excel in academics and after doing that, Dyamappa wanted to go higher up the ladder. Not satisfied with the ranking, he said he would continue his efforts to get into IAS or IPS and prepare for examinations again.

Laxman Nimbaragi from Hubli has secured 104th rank.
