Taking his first crack at the exam, Dr Sachin of Hosadurga in Chitradurga district has secured the 435th rank. He is the son of V Parappa, Agriculture Officer in Hosadurga.
Darshan Gowda has secured the 467th place. In the previous attempt, he had obtained the 586th rank and was selected for the Indian Railway Service. He had taken public administration and anthropology as his subjects for the main examination.

Asif K Hafeez, son of IPS officer K A Hafeez, has secured the 610th rank, taking public administration and sociology as his subjects. An engineering graduate from UVCE, Hafeez said the visible impact of the job that attracted him to civil services.

Prasanna Kumar B K, who secured the 366 rank is a tahsildar with the Dharwad Municipal Corporation. “The paper format has changed this year and answering questions did not depend on what you had memorised, but tested your general awareness about different issues,” he said. Prasanna comes from a family of farmers and he is the first Tahsildar from  his village, Arsagod in Jagalur taluk and now the first one to enter the civil services. “But no one in my village is sure about what it means,” he laughed.

On the other hand, Sandeep G R (694) had an engineering degree with a job at IBM. But that did not stop him from attempting the civil services exam. Son of G Rajappa, Superintendent of Police, Sandeep said that he was motivated to write the exams by his parents who were the first graduates from their village. He is keen about e-governance issues and hopes to bring about changes accordingly in governance. Quite a few of the candidates have attended classes at JSS-TICE, Universal Coaching Centre and Himalai Coaching centre.
