Amidst the current atmosphere of tension prevailing at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus, here is something to cheer up. Out of 100s of universities in the country 56% who made it are from JNU
Out of 32 students selected for the Indian Economics Services (IES) Exam 2019 by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) 18 are from JNU and the topper is also from JNU.
Anshuman Kamila who pursued his M.Phil in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) topped the prestigious Indian Economic Service (IES) exam 2019. Anshuman who belongs to Odisha, is currently employed at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and is among the 32 candidates, who have qualified the IES exam.
The Indian Economics Services (IES) has only 32 seats and 18 of the 32 students selected are from JNU alone. This result once again validates the fact that JNU is an environment of excellence with some of the best minds of the nation coming here to pursue their dreams and the fact that the University offers students an environment to study, achieve and excel
Anshuman is the son of former Chief Postmaster General (CPMG) of Odisha Santosh Kumar Kamila and Odissi vocalist and Professor of Economics at Utkal University, Mitali Chinara.
“I would like to credit my success to my family and well-wishers. It’s their blessings and support which always encouraged me to follow my passion which brought me the success today,” said Anshuman in a video message to media.
The University has been drawing criticism from certain sections of the society and has been accused of ‘enjoying benefits from tax payer’s money’.
The university is known for its notable alumni who now occupy important political and bureaucratic positions. Perhaps, it is time to think why students from other top universities are not able to achieve such feats and how can the bar be raised.
