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.

2. Why did you opt this profession as your career?

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.

3. In case you had failed to make to the final selection in this profession, in which field you would have gone for?

KG: Presently, I am working as a Project Manager in Mahindra British Telecom (MBT). I would have happily continued there.

4. What type of support did your family and friends provide in making your dream come true?

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.

5. What is your present involvement?

KG: Presently, I am guiding the fresh candidates preparing for IAS examination in Pune.

6. How many attempts did you take for clearing this examination?

KG: I cleared this exam in 3rd attempts, though I reached the final (interview) stage in my both previous attempts.

7. What is your opinion about the present system of this examination? Do you suggest any change in it?

KG: I think there should be more emphasis on checking the social attitude and ethical values of the candidates, as these matter most for IAS officers.

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.

9. When did you start preparation for this Examination in true sense of the word?

KG: When I left Indian Engineering Services and joined MBT in Pune, I started preparing for this exam.

10. What were your optional in the prelims and the Mains and why?

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.

11. In your opinion, what role does Guidence play in moulding the careers of the young aspirants?

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.

12. What would be your priority as a professional?

KG: With India poised to become a developed country, I would like to free it of ignorance, squalor and disease.

The questions ranged from Automobile Indusrty, Software Industry, non-conventional energy sources, sustainable environment, Indo-Pak relations.
