Every year, thousands of aspirants flock to the Civil Services Examination (CSE), the gateway to becoming IAS, IPS, IRS, and IFS officers. However, success in this highly competitive exam remains elusive for most.
IPS Kamyaa Misra, a shining example of dedication and perseverance, defied the odds by cracking the UPSC in her very first attempt at the tender age of 22. Her journey to becoming an IPS officer is a testament to the power of unwavering commitment and diligent preparation.
Growing up in Odisha, Kamyaa exhibited academic brilliance from an early age. She emerged as the regional topper, securing an exceptional 98.6% in her Class 12 board exams. Upon completing her intermediate studies, she ventured to Delhi and enrolled in the prestigious Lady Shri Ram College for her graduation.
From the outset, Kamyaa had set her sights on the UPSC exam and embarked on her preparation journey during her graduation years. With a strong belief in self-learning, she eschewed coaching institutions and relied on online resources for comprehensive revision.
Despite the reputation of the CSE as India’s toughest exam, often requiring multiple attempts to conquer, Kamyaa proved her mettle by acing it in her first try. She secured an All India Rank (AIR)-172, earning her a place in the Indian Police Service (IPS) in 2019. Her remarkable achievement came at the young age of 22.
On the personal front, Kamyaa found her soulmate in Awadhesh Saroj, an IPS officer from the Bihar cadre. They exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony in Udaipur.
