Service. He was the topper from Tamil Nadu.
The Union Public Service Commission on Thursday released the list of selected
candidates who have been recommended for appointment to the Indian

Mr. Jeyaseelan said he got his inspiration from reading about a senior
bureaucrat who worked for tsunami rehabilitation after 2004.
“I wrote the civil services examination in Tamil. This is a victory for
Tamil. I am a strong advocate of learning in mother tongue. Language is not a
barrier to success in civil services examination.”
“My father V.Palanichamy was unable to do higher education
after school. My mother P.Pandiammal also did not get opportunity for higher
education. But they inspired me to attain the goal of IAS,” said Mr.Jeyaseelan.
“I did schooling in a rural area. Facilities in Chennai such as Manithanaeyam
Free Coaching Centre, All India Civil Services Coaching Centre, Shankar IAS
Academy and Prabha IAS Academy offered me guidance,” he said.
