"Newsmakers from Hyderabad"
This year's AP Cadre IPS officer
is from Hyderabad
Mr. Stephen Ravindra, I.P.S
|Hyderabad: 28 years old Stephen
Ravindra of Hyderabad has got the rare distinction of bagging the AP cadre
after passing out from Hyderabad's National Police Academy (NPA)
recently. He is also the only male from Hyderabad to have got into the
Indian Police Service from the City. Infact when almost everyone in his
batch gave their first preference as IAS before taking on the exams, he
was the only guy to have opted first for IPS. May be it was in his blood
as he is the son of an illustrious Police Officer Mr. M. B. Ranjit who
recently retired as ACP.
Such is the weight-age attached to the IPS
that when his father retired as ACP, Stephen will be starting his career
as an ACP . Infact by sheer merit at the Civil Service exams (Rank 132) he
has been selected to the AP Cadre which is a rare distinction for an IPS pass out
because most of the cadets are posted outside their state. His
first posting will be in Kurnool District. After completing 9 months
of training from the NPA, he is now attached to the Army as part of the
rigorous training to the IPS training programme.
When Reachout met his parents at their Jubilee Hills
residence they were a happy lot as their son will be in AP itself.

Mr. Stephen did his schooling from St.Pauls High
School, Hyderguda and then his Intermediate from Little Flower Junior
College, Uppal after which he studied in the Prestigious Nizam's College
with Genetics as his major subject. It was at this time that he set his
his eyes on the Civil Services. He was also a Gold Medallist in MSc from
Osmania University. Since he was from the science background, it was
natural for him to give a try at the Indian Forest Services where he
failed at the interview and even his first attempt at the Indian Civil
Services exam also bombed. Being a sportsman all his life the failures did
not deter him as he pursued his goal which fetched him the IPS on his
His Police life is just about to start and we
at Reachout do hereby convey all its best wishes to Mr. Stephen for a
bright career ahead. It is in the hands of young officers like him, lies a
safe and secure India.
