A medical doctor from Osmania Medical College, Srija bagged the rank in her very first attempt with the optionals being from her core subjects. The daughter of a nurse in Primary Health Centre in Jangaon Srija will get the home cadre for her rank. From being medical doctor to a civil servant, she says she can serve better in public life than in medical profession. She attributes her success to her father Srinivas Podishetty’s dream.

The State topper who hails from Warangal says she was ably guided by V. Gopalkrishna of Brain Tree, Balalatha of CSB IAS Academy and Cyberabad Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat for the personality test. The 66th ranker, Anisha Srivastava, an alumnus of NASR school, is a resident of RK Puram.
