Tejasvi Rana of Kurukshetra has secured 12th rank in the civil services examination, results of which were declared by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on Wednesday.

“My parents gave me all support to achieve my target and my success is the result of their efforts,” says Tejasvi whose father Dr Kuldeep Rana is professor of economics in Kurukshetra University and mother Dr Sarita Rana is associate professor of commerce in University College at Kurukshetra.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Tejasvi said, “For the past one year when I was preparing for the exam, my parents provided me all help I required.”

Tejasvi, a BS (economics) from IIT Kanpur, said, “I wanted to serve the country as an IAS officer. It’s a dream come true for me.”

Regarding her preparations, she said, “I worked hard and spent 8 to 10 hours every day for the preparations. But I was not expecting to get 12th position.”

About her future plans, she said, “In the coming days, India will be going far ahead in development. Administration and officers play a big role in this and I will give my best to see my country progress.”

Tejsavi’s father Kuldeep Rana said, “I am very happy with the achievement of my daughter and I am sure that one day she will prove to be an asset for the country.”
