NEW DELHI: Aditya Srivastava, a young man from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, has emerged as the topper of the prestigious UPSC Civil Services Examination 2023. The results were declared on April 16th, marking the culmination of his dedicated efforts.
Srivastava’s academic journey is impressive. He completed his schooling at CMS Lucknow’s Aliganj branch, reportedly excelling in his Class 12th exams with a score of 95%.This academic prowess continued at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), where he pursued a dual B.Tech and M.Tech degree, potentially earning a gold medal (specific confirmation on the gold medal awaits further information).

Following his time at IIT, Srivastava reportedly spent 15 months working at Goldman Sachs. This experience, however, appears to have ignited a desire to contribute to society on a more fundamental level. In an interview, Srivastava expressed a yearning to work at the grassroots level and “uplift the system.”
Motivations for Choosing the Civil Services Path
Srivastava’s decision to pursue a career in the Indian Administrative Services (IAS) wasn’t impulsive. In a YouTube mock interview, he candidly explained how his initial focus was on financial security, leading him to his corporate role. However, he realized that money wasn’t the ultimate motivator. The Civil Services, in his eyes, presented an opportunity to “contribute positively to the system” and “have an impact on grassroots levels.” The ability to innovate within a framework further appealed to him.
Srivastava’s story is an inspiration to aspiring civil servants. His academic brilliance, combined with his desire to effect positive change, makes him a worthy recipient of the coveted top rank. It will be interesting to see how he utilizes his talents and dedication to serve the nation in the years to come.
Perseverance Pays Off: Srivastava Secures Top Rank After Previous Attempt
Aditya Srivastava’s achievement is even more remarkable considering his prior attempt at the Civil Services Exam. He was ranked 236th in the 2022 UPSC CSE and opted for the Indian Police Service (IPS). Currently, he is undergoing training at the National Police Academy in Hyderabad.
This dedication and perseverance, along with the support of his family (his father, Ajay Srivastava, is an assistant audit officer at the Comptroller and Auditor General of India), have undoubtedly played a key role in propelling him to the top rank in 2023.
