Kuldeep Dwivedi from Lucknow has got 242nd rank in the Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission. Kuldeep Dwivedi, whose father is a security guard at Lucknow University, is happy that he managed to crack Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exam.
Kuldeep Dwivedi fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer securing an all India 242 rank in the prestigious Civil Services Examination.
According to Kuldeep his parents could not believe that their son passed one of the most toughest exam of the country and may become an IPS officer. It took Lucknow’s Kuldeep Dwivedi nearly 30 minutes to explain to his father Surya Kant Dwivedi, what it meant to score the 242nd rank in the Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Kuldeep said, “They do not understand what IPS is all about. They just think that a sub-inspector is the most powerful person in the police department. I had to tell them that after completion of training I will be posted as assistant superintendent of police (ASP) in some district. And when they realised that I have now become an officer. There was complete silence. Tears rolled out from their eyes,."
Kuldeep's mother is a homemaker, and 27-year old Kuldeep is youngest among three brothers and a sister. Kuldeep is a post graduate from Allahabad. According to him the most difficult time that he faced was after he failed to crack the exam in his first two attempts. In 2013, he was selected as an assistant commandant in the Border Security Force but he did not join the training.
