Preparing for the civil services exams at Ignite IAS has been an eye-opening experience for me. Our Dean Sir’s noble initiative to encourage research on our own districts during holidays has allowed me to gain practical knowledge and compile a ready reckoner for future purposes. During the recent Annual Conference of District Collectors, chaired by our chief mentor N.S Reddy Sir on National Civil Service Day, I was able to effectively answer questions on the lack of industrial development and recurrent flooding in my district of Cachar, Assam.
I highlighted the hindrances and future prospects, including the attention given by the NDA regime towards the development of the Northeastern region and the revamped approach of the Assam Government with schemes like Orunodoi and effective transportation facilitation. I also drew upon the flood mitigation and management techniques learned in Disaster Management classes. This holistic approach to civil service preparation at Ignite IAS, where real-life instances are taken into account alongside pen-paper learning, has allowed me to gain a deep understanding of the challenges faced by my district, such as the lack of industrial infrastructure and slow developmental trajectory, as well as increasing susceptibility to recurrent flooding. I am grateful for the opportunity to strive for the betterment of my district and eagerly look forward to serving as a District Collector & Magistrate in Cachar District, Government of Assam, as an IAS officer in the near future told Smith Raj Bhattacharjee, Student of Ignite IAS, Hyderabad
Civil Servants Day is a day set aside to recognize the contributions of Civil Servants to the development of the nation. Celebrating this day in a unique and meaningful way is the hallmark of Ignite IAS, which has consistently demonstrated its commitment to providing quality education to its students.
Directors Chintam Srinivas Reddy, V.Pavan Kumar & Principal V. Satyanarayana have participated in the event.
In conclusion, Ignite IAS’s activity was a resounding success, and it has created a platform for future Civil Servants/IAS officers to think critically and creatively. The institute is committed to nurturing the best and brightest minds and giving them a platform to lead from the front.
