Civil service aspirants from the two Telugu States have not secured expected ranks as compared to last year, although it can be considered a ‘decent’ show given the fewer vacancies this year. The results were released on Monday.

That being said, the combined States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh numerically stand at the top in south India, said V. Gopala Krishna, director of Brain Tree-Hyderabad.

Initial estimates

About 35 candidates have made it into various services from both States as per initial estimates.

The best rank for a Telugu aspirant was all India 15th, secured by Yashwant Kumar Reddy followed by Poosapati Sahitya (24th), who hails from Vijayawada and Mantri Mourya Bharadwaj (28th) from Narsipatnam. All three hail from Andhra Pradesh.

Having secured the 207th rank last year, she was selected for the IRS and is presently posted as Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax. Her dream of getting into the IAS was successful in the fourth attempt.

Ms. Sanjana did her schooling at All Saints High School in the city and B.Tech in computer science from G. Narayanamma Institute of Technology. She took coaching at La Excellence, according to P. Rambabu of the institute. Her husband, Harsha Mannava, has been a constant support to her success.
