Nandini KR, IAS Topper: Profile, Family, Caste and Boyfriend

UPSC has declared result for Civil Services Examination, 2016. The result has no surprises as far as the gender of the topper is concerned. Glass ceiling effect is no more for women in the Civil Services, it has become for men. This time also, a woman has topped the CSE. She is Nandini KR.

The Kolar Gold Fields of Karnataka has produced a gold which sparkled on 31st May, 2016. Nandini, a resident of this Kolar field, has brought glory to the area.
This is a nostalgic moment for Karnataka. It took so long, though. Vijayalakshi Bidari had topped the Civil Services Examination 16 years back.

Profile of Nandini KR

Nandini KR was born and brought up in the Kolar Gold Field (Kembodi village) of Karnataka. Her father Mr. Ramesh is a Government teacher. She has one brother named Thorun Patell who is doing PG at Indian Institute of Agriculture Research Institute, New Delhi. She did schooling from St. Joseph Convent Girls High School. She had decided to become an IAS officer during her school days itself. It was natural for her to not look for private job after engineering and rather start preparation for Civil Services. In between, she had also worked for Karnataka PWD department as an engineer. It should be noted that Nandini has done B. Tech (Civil Engineering) from prestigious M S Ramaiya Engineering College, Bangalore. This is also the first time that a topper has emerged from a private engineering college - a tight slap for IITs.

Nandini cracked Civil Services Examination in her third attempt in   CSE 2015. However, her rank was not good enough and she was allotted Indian Revenue Services (IRS). She joined IRS without compromising with her preparation. This year she appeared with better preparation and the result justifies her hard work.
By caste, Nandini KR is an OBC. She took Kannada literature as her optional subject for Civil Services Mains Examination. Nandini had taken admission in Vajiram and Ravi for General Studies (and, later for Interview preparation).

Nandini KR became topper in her fourth attempt.

Her marks is a testimony of the fact that UPSC really adopts tough standard in conducting Civil Services Examination. In all, Nandini has got 1120 marks (927 in Written Mains Examination and 193 in Interview).
