RICE IAS ACADEMY conducted a seminar at Techno India University Campus
On 7th September 2018, RICE IAS ACADEMY conducted a seminar on career opportunities in the IAS/IPS at Techno India University Campus, Salt Lake, Sector V, Kolkata.
The seminar began with an introductory session to the Union Public Service Commission- Civil Services Examination (UPSC-CSE), where the RICE IAS Academy team briefed the students and aspirants on the salient features of the prestigious services and the UPSC-CSE which the aspirants need to face to get into the services.
Senior IPS Officer, Dr B N Ramesh, IPS 1988 Batch (West Bengal Cadre) B. Tech., MBA (IIM), and PhD (IIT), graced the occasion and shared his experiences and insights from his illustrious career. The audience was captivated and inspired by the work and life of Mr Ramesh. He emphasised that he was able to serve the nation and got laurels for it only because the All India Services present ample opportunities to serve.
Dr Ramesh, in his enthralling speech, underscored not just the power and prestige but also the opportunity to wipe out every tear from every eye which the Services provide. He also cleared the doubts of the students regarding the Services and the CSE, where he busted the myth that the CSE is biased against the students from Science and Technical background. He gave his own example and said that he topped the Political Science Optional in the CSE despite having an Engineering background.
After this, the RICE IAS ACADEMY conducted a quiz based on the UPSC-CSE syllabus, in which the audience proved itself to be very aware and intelligent by answering almost all the questions. Those answering correctly were rewarded by the RICE IAS ACADEMY. The quiz turned out to be extremely engaging and informative for all.
With this, RICE IAS ACADEMY made its presence felt among the vibrant aspirants of various technical and engineering backgrounds. Given the enthusiasm shown by the aspirants, RICE IAS ACADEMY endeavours to conduct more such seminars during upcoming weeks.
