Profile of Garima Singh
Garima Singh was born on Feb 14th, 1987 in Noida. Yes, she was born on Valentine day!
Her family is basically from Balia district of Uttar Pradesh. She is a Rajput by caste. Balia is famous for producing many well-known Rajput, like Surajdeo Singh and former PM Chandrashekhar.
Garima’s father, Mr. Omkar Nath Singh, is an engineer and settled in Noida. It is because of this fact that Garima completed her education from Nodia. She was quite a brilliant student and was, in fact, dreaming to become a doctor. When she completed her 12th and was preparing for Medical Admission Test, her father made a wish. He said that it is his desire to see her becoming an IAS officer. For her father, she deserted the idea of becoming a doctor and applied in DU. She got admission in the prestigious St. Stephen’s College, Delhi from where she has done BA History and MA History. She started preparation after completing her graduation. She cracked UPSC Civil Services Examination in her very first attempt in 2012. Her All India Rank was 109. Her first choice was IAS and the second was IPS. She got the second choice. Though, she got the first choice when it comes to cadre and got her home state – UP.
Garmia Singh, in an interview, had said that somewhere in heart it was always her desire to become an IPS Officer, not an IAS. She was actually asked to grease the palm of policeman while roaming around road in night. That bribery incident made her mind to become an IPS Officer.
