"The only plan (after becoming a civil servant) I have is to take the administration closer to people and work in a people-centric manner," she said.

On tips for civil services aspirants, Ms Reddy said every exam takers should prepare their plan as per their strengths and weaknesses, without blindly following others.

"Also, don't ever give up. This examination is full of challenges, mentally or otherwise. So, keep your calm and don't give up," she said.

Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy congratulated the civil services exam rankers from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Revanth Reddy is delighted that more than 50 candidates from the two states got selected for the civil services, an official release said.
