NEW DELHI: In the recently declared results for the UPSC Indian Economic Service (IES) Examination 2019, out of 32 qualified candidates, 18 are JNU alumni.
This is expected to be a silver lining at a time when Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is rocked by controversies.
One of the students from the varsity has secured 8th rank and became the only JNU student to enter the top 10 this year.
After her achievement, Yashaswini Saraswat on January 13 met JNU Vice Chancellor (VC) M Jagadesh Kumar at his office.
Her area of research was Environmental Economics.
Speaking on the success of the students of JNU she said, “We are all very happy. 18 JNU students cleared the exam this year. I feel fortunate and proud to have been a part of JNU and achieved this.”
With this result, it has become clear that JNU gives students an environment to study and the education level here is much better.
The Indian Economic Service is the administrative inter-ministerial and inter-departmental civil service under Group A of the Central Civil Services of the executive branch of the Government of India.
