Nitish K. (26), a native of Udupi district, was in disbelief when he learnt of his Civil Services Examination (CSE) results. The eighth ranker, Nitish had managed the feat in his third attempt.

Currently undergoing training at the Indian Audit and Account Service in Shimla since December 2014, the 2011-batch engineering graduate from PES Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, said he will migrate to the Indian Administrative Service and straightaway join training in Mussoorie.

Son of bank manager K. Ramakrishna Hebbar and homemaker G. Bharathi, Nitish plunged into preparing for the CSE soon after he graduated. In his first attempt, he missed getting a rank by 10 marks, and then ranked 547 in his second attempt.

“I would like to improve facilities in rural areas,” he said, adding that he would be the first IAS officer in his family.
