This time he got the Indian Defense Account Service (IDAS). Ravi joined the Indian Defense Accounts Service by resigning from the Indian Railway Traffic Service. If seen, the Indian Railway Traffic Service was a better service than the Indian Defense Account Service, but Ravi could not get time to study in this job and the working time of the service was also more. Seeing all these reasons, Ravi chose the Indian Defense Account Service.

UPSC’s third attempt

Ravi continued his studies while in the Indian Defense Accounts Service. And gave the UPSC exam in the year 2020, but this time the result was beyond his hard work. This time Ravi could not pass the prelims exam. And Ravi was shocked. But Ravi did not give up and continued his studies.

UPSC’s fourth attempt

It seemed to him that Hindi medium was the reason for his low marks. But he accepted the challenge and did not see language as a barrier. He prepared under the right guidance. And by securing 18th rank in the year 2021, proved that a good rank can be achieved through Hindi medium also.
