Mohanty will now be walking in her father Prasanna Kumar Mohanty's footsteps.
And, she will have husband Rajat Saini for company as well. Swetha has secured
second rank in the Civil Services Examination and is delighted.
“I am really extremely happy but it will take some time for
the feeling to actually sink in.” “It has been a long-cherished dream for me,”
Swetha, at present an Indian Revenue Service (2007 batch) officer serving in
Siliguri, West Bengal, told PTI over phone. Swetha's father P K Mohanty is a
1979-batch IAS officer of Andhra Pradesh cadre, currently on deputation to
Central government as joint secretary in the Union Ministry of Urban Poverty
“My father has always been a role model for me and I would
like to contribute my part to the society like him,” Swetha said. An engineering
graduate in Information Technology from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological
University here, Swetha made it to the IAS in the third attempt, having failed
in the first.
