Amid the success stories of many rank-holders, Aishwarya stole the limelight as she appeared in the Civil Services Examination and secured an All India rank of 93.

“Aishwarya Sheoran, Femina Miss India 2016 finalist, Campus Princess Delhi 2016, Freshface winner Delhi 2015 made us immensely proud as she scored the All India Rank 93 in the Civil Services Examination. A huge congratulations to her on this achievement! (sic),” the Miss India official Twitter handle ‘@feminamissindia’ said in a post.

Aishwarya Sheoran was named after Aishwarya Rai by her mother. Araprt from modelling, Aishwarya always dreamt of cracking the civil services exam. Her father Colonel Ajay Kumar — currently serving as Commanding Officer of NCC Telangana Battalion, Karimnagar — inspired Aishwarya to serve the nation.

Explaining how she prepared for UPSE in a year, Aishwarya told The Times Of India: “I had to switch off my phone, social media, everything, to focus on the exam and the result is here. But it’s not that I suddenly generated an interest in studies. I was always very studious. I was the head girl in my school. I was a science student and then I went to SRCC (Sri Ram College of Commerce), so my background was such. And ultimately I gravitated back to my studies.”
