Women candidates have bagged top for slots in the prestigious Civil Services examination to select IAS and IPS officers among others. While Ira Singhal has topped the examination, the second spot has been bagged by Renu Raj.

Renu Raj works at a hospital in Kollam in Kerala and she hails from Kottayam. She secured the second rank in the exam in her first attempt.

"I am extremely happy to know the result. I have been preparing for the exam for the last one year," she said.

A total number of 1,236 candidates, including 590 in General category, 354 belonging to Other Backward Class, 194 from Scheduled Caste and 98 from Scheduled Tribe, have been recommended for appointment to various central government services, the UPSC said.

A total of 1,364 posts are to be filled through the civil services examination. There are 254 other candidates in the waiting list.

It is the first time that the Commission has declared the final results on the fourth day of the closing date for the personality tests or interviews, a senior UPSC official said.

The civil services examination is conducted by the UPSC annually in three stages - preliminary, mains and interviews - to select candidates for the elite Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.

The civil services preliminary examination was conducted on August 24 last year at 2,137 venues in 59 centres across the country. About 9.45 lakh candidates had applied for it but approximately 4.51 lakh appeared for the examination.

Of these, 16,933 were declared qualified for the main examination, the official said. The main examination was held in December last year and, out of the 16,933 candidates, 16,286 appeared for it, he said.
