Shashvat Sangwan, 26, first cleared the civil services examination last year but he didn’t get the service he wanted. Sangwan’s rank, 320, entitled him to join the Indian Defence Estates Service and he did sign up for the training. But he wanted to become an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer and kept preparing for the examination.
“He is currently undergoing training for Indian Defence Estates Service (IDES) and this was his second attempt,” his father, Dr Satish Sangwan, who runs a clinic at Jhajjar’s Bahadurgarh, said, elated at his son’s success.

Shashvat Sangwan did his schooling at the Delhi Public School R K Puram, in the national capital and holds a degree in mechanical engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani in Rajasthan in 2018.
His father Dr Sangwan underlined how Shashvat never took coaching for the UPSC exams but prepared on his own. Or how studies was not the only area where he excelled in.
He was a national basketball player and used to participate in long marathons of 42km. Playing and studying are his hobbies,” Dr Sangwan added.
