Vinayak Verma left his high-paid job in Paris to fulfill his dream of working as an IPS officer and serving the people of the country.
In 2012, he cleared civil service examinations in the first attempt. A graduate from National Law School of India, Bengaluru, Vinayak worked with a Paris law firm and on an annual package of Rs. 52 lakh. Even as he had long working hours, he took out time to study and cleared the exam in 2012.
A year later, he took the test again and scored 187 rank. He decided to leave his job and get back to India. Currently he is taking training from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy. He is a Madhya Pradesh cadre officer.
“You cannot crack the exam by rote learning. Keep your eyes and ears open all the time. A day-to-day increase in knowledge is what helps in the end,” he said
