NEW DELHI, Aug 25: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge), Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh today felicitated All India Toppers of IAS/ Civil Services Exam 2019, the result of which was declared recently. These included Pradeep Singh All India Rank – 1 hailing from Haryana, Jatin Kishore All India Rank – 2 belonging to Delhi and Pratibha Verma All India Rank – 3 whose home state is Uttar Pradesh.
During the interaction, Dr Jitendra Singh said, for the last five years or so, he had introduced in the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) a new tradition of personally inviting the All India Toppers to the DoPT Headquarters at North Block and felicitating them along with presentation of testimonials. However, this year’s ceremony could not be held in the same format because of the constraints of the pandemic and therefore a Video Conference is being held with the All India Toppers located in different parts of the country.
During the informal chat with the toppers, Dr Jitendra Singh inquired about their family and their future aspirations. He said, they are entering the Services at one of the best times in the history of post-independent India, when under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India was on the ascent and would soon be a frontline nation of the world. From that point of view, he said, the young officers who have 30 to 35 years service to render, will have the fortune of being contributors in the making of Modi’s New India.
Dr Jitendra Singh also recalled some of the pathbreaking reforms brought in the for the young probationers and IAS officers during the last six years. These, he said, included introduction of 3 months stint of mentorship at the Central government before giving over to the respective State or Union Territory to join the allotted cadre.
Dr Jitendra Singh also noted the demographic change which has taken place in the profile of toppers in the last few years. He said, while till about a decade ago only a certain few States of India repeatedly figured in the list of toppers, today we have toppers from States like Haryana, Punjab and Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir, which is relatively a new phenomena. Similarly, he said, virtually every year there is one or more than one woman candidate among the first 3 toppers, he added.
Dr Jitendra Singh also observed the presence of twelve engineers in the first 25 toppers of this tear, which he hoped will add value to the work assigned to them in carrying out various specialized schemes and programmes introduced by the Modi Government.
While welcoming toppers of CSE 2019, Dr. C. Chandramouli, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training congratulated all 20 toppers and wished for their bright future.
