For Mr. Kiran Gitte (IAS)
Please accept heartiest congratulations on our Website.
1. Can you tell us the secret of your grand performance?
Kiran Gitte(KG): I think my determination to get into IAS and sincere efforts towards the goal has been the open secret of this achievement. I was aware of amount of hard work required and was well prepared to continuously keep it above the benchmark. This helped me to score over the other competitors.
KG: Being a Mechanical Engineer, initially I opted for career in Automobile industry (TELCO, Pune). But soon realized that I could hardly make any contribution to the society and public life. Hence I opted for IAS, which has a considerably public face and authority to make difference in common man's life.
KG: Presently, I am working as a Project Manager in Mahindra British Telecom (MBT). I would have happily continued there.
KG: My parents are farmers but they had immense belief in English and higher education as an effective means for economic and social development. They gave me support and encouragement throughout my studies.
I cleared this exam in 3rd attempts, though I reached the final (interview)
stage in my both previous attempts.
I think there should be more emphasis on checking the social attitude
and ethical values of the candidates, as these matter most for IAS
8. Besides this profession, did you appear in any other competitive examinations?
KG: Earlier, I had cleared Indian Engineering Services (UPSC) in 2000 and was selected as Tahsildar by MPSC.
KG: When I left Indian Engineering Services and joined MBT in Pune, I started preparing for this exam.
KG: I choose Public Administration (Prelims) and Public Administration & Sociology (Mains). PA is an analytical subject and hence it is easy for engineers to prepare. Also, being compact it helps candidates to clear Prelims easily, which is major hurdle for deserving candidates.
KG: Young aspirants get to know the nature of civil services and a clue to develop their understanding, study and personality, which makes them more suitable for these careers.
KG: With India poised to become a developed country, I would like to free it of ignorance, squalor and disease.
KG: "Do not hesitate to dream since it is only after this step you start taking right steps towards the goal".
: Kiran Gitte
I was interviewed on 18th April at UPSC Dholpur House, New Delhi by panel headed by Mr. Bhurelal (Chairman of Committee on CNG). The questions ranged from Automobile Indusrty, Software Industry, non-conventional energy sources, sustainable environment, Indo-Pak relations. There were questions on share market, rural sanitation, food security. The last question was on Mahatma Phule and Dr. Ambedkar, which I think I have answered the best.
should have started preparing for IAS right from the degree level,
which I could not as was unaware of this examination at that time
