Meet Garima Singh, An IPS Officer Who Cleared Civil Service Exams Again To Become An IAS

Updated on 8 July, 2019 at 2:38 pm By

She was already an IPS officer, having qualified the civil services examinations in 2012 in first attempt. But Garima Singh was destined for greater achievement.

Singh has now attained rank 55 in the 2015 civil services examinations to qualify for the Indian Administrative Services (IAS).

Currently the Superintendent of Police in Jhansi, Singh was only 25 when she became an IPS officer.

Hailing from a small village in Balia district of Uttar Pradesh, Singh wanted to become a doctor. It was her father who persuaded Singh to take up civil service examinations.

Before Jahnsi, Singh had already made waves during her Lucknow stint.

She was on the team probing the infamous Mohanlalganj rape case and was instrumental in setting up the woman’s helpline number 1090.

While Garima is a diligent officer and posts updates of her work on her Facebook account on a regular basis, she does find some time for leisure activities like watching a movie.

But there was a time when she abhorred the police. She says that she experienced corruption in police force first hand during her college days when a cop asked for a bribe of Rs.100 when she was returning home late at night with friends.

It was only later that her perspective of the police changed when they helped retrieve her lost mobile phone.
