An alumnus of Bangalore Medical College Dr Naveen Y Bhat Cleared IAS Exam

 Dr Naveen Y Bhat, another candidate from Karnataka, secured the 37th rank in the UPSC exams.

Visual impairment no hurdle for him

For Kempahonnaiah, who secured the 340th rank, it was no small feat for someone with a visual impairment. He hopes to bag an IAS posting with his score.

Then on, there was no looking back for him. He went on to pursue his degree from Maharaja’s College and post-graduation from KSOU. Currently, he is working as a lecturer in Mysuru’s Ontikoppal College.

“My wife Achitha has been very supportive. I wrote the exam with support from my friends. My wife would prepare notes for me and make records. This helped me prepare for exams,” he added.

Yet another engineering graduate from Bengaluru made it to the top in UPSC exams. In his fifth attempt, Ratan B got the 178th rank.
Having passed out of RV Engineering College, he initially worked with Cisco for three years before beginning his preparation for the civil service exams in 2013.
