UPSC Civil Service Exams 2019
Aishwarya has secured the 93rd rank in the UPSC Civil Service Exams 2019 (results declared on 4 August 2020). She took a break from her modelling career to prepare for the Civil Services Exams. In an interview, she said,
I prepared for the UPSC civil service exam in 10 months. I did not take up any coaching classes to clear the exam. I had to switch off my phone, social media, everything, to focus on the exam and the result is here. But it’s not that I suddenly generated interest in studies. I was always studious.” I thought I should try for civil services for diversity in the family and the ultimate idea is to serve the nation. In the army, there are opportunities for women to grow, but it is still very limited. In civil services, there is no limit to what a woman can achieve.”
On her this achievement, Deputy Commissioner in New Delhi, Abhishek Singh tweeted,
Happy to see people pursuing diverse interests in life choosing Civil Services as a career. #NewIndia needs #NewAgeOfficers who make the service more representative, more open & more contemporary! Welcome aboard #AishwaryaSheoran Rank 93, CSE 19; a top model & now an officer!!”
