Odisha’s Shashank Shekhar has topped the In­dian En­gi­neer­ing Ser­vices ( IES) Ex­am­i­na­tion 2018 con­ducted by Union Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion ( UPSC). Mr She­har passed BTech in elec­tronic and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion en­gi­neer­ing from KIIT Deemed to be Univer­sity, Bhubaneswar, in 2013. Af­ter com­plet­ing his en­gi­neer­ing de­gree from KIIT, Mr Shekhar com­pleted MTech from In­dian Iin­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, Khar­ga­pur. Re­act­ing to his suc­cess, he said, “I did not take any coach­ing for prepa­ra­tion of en­gi­neer­ing ser­vices ex­am­i­na­tions. The only rea­son that I could achieve suc­cess in this ex­am­i­na­tion is the study that I had done at KIIT Univer­sity. There is no point dis­cussing whether only IITians or NITians get bet­ter marks, or the en­gi­neer­ing ser­vices is only for them.” Mr Shekhar said any­one who has pa­tience, ded­i­ca­tion and ta­lent can qual­ify.
