We, all at ClearIAS, along with our readers, congratulate Jishnu for his exceptional achievement.
ClearIAS Team Member

Jishnu, know for his high scores in UPSC Prelims, was also actively involved in ClearIAS Prelims Test Series question preparation.

Long Wait; Well-Deserved!
It always appeared to me that he deserved to be in service much earlier. However, the so-called ‘UPSC luck’ didn’t favour him until this year, even though he attended multiple UPSC Interviews.
RBI officer; now into Civil Services
It took 5 attempts and 4 interviews for Jishnu to get All India Rank 132. However, that doesn’t mean that he was a full-time student.
In the initial years, he was working for ClearIAS. Meanwhile, he also got selected into the Reserve Bank of India. As of now, he is Probationer as RBI Grade B Manager.

Hard work and Persistence
