"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. Stephen's two brothers work for Oracle Corporation in California. 

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 second attempt. 

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.
