story know all about the shyam baboo who becomes pcs officer after serving 14 years as constable in uttar pradesh police
It was not easy, but I devoted my time to study after my duty hours. I studied hard and cracked the examination in my sixth attempt
PRAYAGRAJ :Cracking the Provincial Civil Services (PCS) examination is tough. It becomes tougher when the aspirant is a policeman, whose long duty hours leave little time for him to study.
However, constable Kumar Shyam aka Shyambabu, 33, has surprised many by not only cracking the UP PCS-2016 but securing the 52nd rank to be assured of becoming an sub-divisional magistrate (SDM). His sweet success came in his sixth attempt.
Posted in the Information Technology cell at the police headquarters in Prayagraj, Shyambabu was selected in the constable recruitment test in 2005.
Even as he worked hard at the police headquarters, he never quit his dream of cracking the PCS examination and join the rank of officials in the state, said his colleagues at the police headquarters.
With no off days and very few leaves in the police department, it was hard for Shyambabu to get time to study but his devotion to his dream made him study hard after his working hours, says his colleague and friend, constable Arif Khan.
A native of Balia district, Shyambabu’s father runs a grocery shop. His elder brother used to assist his father but on Shyambabu’s insistence he came to Prayagraj and cracked the competitive examination to become an income tax Inspector a few
years back. Shyambabu has five sisters who are all married. “It was not easy, but I devoted my time to study after my duty hours. I was transferred to PHQ in 2014 and in Prayagraj I got a chance to get better guidance and study material. I studied hard and cracked the examination in my sixth attempt. I completed my graduation and post graduation while in service in 2008 and 2013 respectively and even qualified for UGC Net-2017,” Shyambabu said.
Congratulations poured in for the SDM-to-be as the UP PCS results were declared. ADG BP Jogdand also called Shyambabu to congratulate him on his success.
“It was a moment of pride for me and my colleagues as the ADG called me to his chamber. It was the first time in four years that I spoke to him face to face,” Shyambabu said.
