Gaurav Dhiman
Started preparing for UPSC & HPAS in July 2014. HPAS provides platform for serving people of my state. Cracking competitive exams will bring resources and authority to bring meaningful change in ground realities. Sensitivity to problems and empathetic attitude towards others pushed me towards this direction to work for the people.

Electronic Vs Paper material

Q. Nowadays many students rely on internet for study material, so how much do you rely on electronic material and how much on the paper material (Books, Newspaper)? If possible narrate a typical day in your study life. What is your style of preparation (e.g. I continue make notes no matter what I’m reading, I just multiple times nut don’t maintain notes, I make mind map on computer.. etc style or way)

Tempo and Style

Q. Students know what books and syllabus points are to be prepared. But most of them lack consistency in their preparation. So, how do you keep study momentum going on? How do you fight against the mood swings and distraction?
  • Motivational videos & success stories on You Tube & other sites such as Khadubhai, Mrunal kept me going whenever I felt low.
  • Better India.com, Jindagi Live and LABSNAA videos are a constant pusher and incentive to keep going on enjoying this empowering journey.
  • Also I kept on pursuing my travelling hobby to keep me rejuvenated.

If Struggle of a senior player

  • Focused mainly on HPAS exam after UPSC attempted and identified gaps with help of my mentors and plugged them.
  • Took 50 Mock interview sessions with GURUJI’S KIRPA S.N.M.IAS Academy mentors.

Ans. Yes, I wrote in bullets, points and wrote in small paragraphs where ever necessary.

Q. What was your approach in the exam writing questions in fixed word limits?

  • Word limit is not a problem if answer writing practice is done regularly.
  • In such questions introduction and frivolous details can be skipped and one has to strictly stick to the concept asked in the question.


Q. How did you prepare for the interview?

Ans. I relied on my mentor Dr. Nidhi Soni for interview preparation.
  • Did mock interview sessions with the expert panel at GURUJI’S KIRPA S.N.M. IAS Academy before final interview which boosted my confidence level and primed on what to expect at the time of the actual test.
Q. Please narrate your entire interview-what questions did they ask and what did you reply and other pleasant or uncomfortable experiences during the interview.( or you can simply tell about the questions asked in the interview, but it will be better if you try to narrate in question –answer patter).


  •  Comparison between private and government undertaking in Himachal

  • Question based on Public Administration optional
-          Rule of law
  • Questions on that day’s newspaper

Q. Was your interview on the expected lines of what you had prepared or did they ask you totally unexpected questions? Was it a stress interview, did they ask any uncomfortable questions? If yes, how did you handle it?

Ans.  I prepared well for interview covering all aspects, so it was on expected lines.
  • Panel was very friendly and cordial and made me comfortable.

Insecurity about profile

Q. Many candidates prepare sincerely but constantly live under fear about ‘profile insecurity’. I’m not from a big college, I’m not from English medium, and I don’t have work- experience. What if they ask some stressful questions in the interview about this? What is your message to these candidates?

  • Prepare your topics well
  • Language is just a medium of communication
  • There is no limitation posed by the commission on the type of college or medium of the candidate. The eligibility criteria has nothing to do with the job experience of the candidates. Any graduate can apply .So, these are self imposed rules and criteria  set by the commission

Marks Obtained
Max Marks
Public Administration

Career Backup

Q. If you were not selected, what was your career backup plan?

Ans. I was already in a government job, so there was no insecurity regarding career planning.

Views on HPAS Reforms

Q. Optional subjects should be removed altogether or not? Does present pattern seems biased these days when importance is being given to GS more? What is you take on this?

Ans. There is only one optional subject as in UPSC and HCS.
  • Even though GS is for 450 marks and optional for 300 marks.GS preparation requires extensive study and it remains a level playing ground where as optional, if prepared well, can be a game changer. So, I think there is a equilibrium between the two exams.

Q. What are your thoughts on the Aptitude test (CSAT)? (Honest Views) it should be only qualifying in nature or not?

Ans. It is already qualifying only.

Q. What other reforms you would like to see in HPAS?

Ans. It is already in line with UPSC pattern.

Inspiration & Wisdom

Q. Through this struggle and success, what have your learned? What is the wisdom of life and competition? What is your message to the new aspirants?

  • There is no substitute to hardwork and  determination.
  • Perseverance is the key to success, there should be a whole hearted focus on one single exam.
  • There should be a healthy spirit of competition, group discussions are big facilitator.
  • New aspirants should follow an incremental approach, adding to their knowledge gradually and systematically.
  • The beginners should become seekers of knowledge, if they perceive syllabus as a burden they will find it difficult to retain and to manage. One should be open to all types of information and knowledge.
  • Every aspirant should follow a Network model, making interconnections among various GS Modules.
  • To give is to live and to live is to give. The faces and plight of poor, deprived people used to haunt me to keep me on my toes and never let me sleep peacefully. The urge to uplift the marginalized and neglected section of society is the fire behind this journey.

I used to follow this Mantra:-

"Lehron se Darkar nauka par nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti,

Nanhi cheenti jab daana lekar chalti hai,
chadhti deewaron par, sau bar phisalti hai.
Man ka vishwas ragon mein saahas bharta hai,
chadhkar girna, girkar chadhna na akharta hai.
Akhir uski mehnat bekar nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti.

Jab tak na safal ho, neend chain ko tyago tum,
Sangharsh ka maidan chhodkar mat bhago tum.
Kuch kiye bina hi jai jaikar nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti."

Q. Many hardworking candidates have failed in Mains/ Interview of HPAS- 2014.They is feeling dejected-what is your message to them?

Ans. I failed 16 times in individual bank PO exams before cracking IBPS PO.
  • To learn from failures, making it a recipe for your success is extremely important.
  • An aspirant should keep working hard, undistracted and undeterred despite the  distractions and challenges.

Q. How did you kept motivating yourself in these years for this journey? Or form where you got the inspiration? Please share

  • I watched Motivational videos and read biographies of great leaders like Abdul Kalam, Sreedharan, Kiran Bedi and realized nobody has achieved success without facing hardships.
  • Lectures organized by SNM IAS Academy of senior serving officers was a constant moral booster during my preparation.
  • I also read texts by Osho and Dalai Lama which is a constant source of inspiration.

Credit: Family/ Friend/Tutors

Q. Behind every topper are many people who stood by during those uncertain times when he/she was merely an aspirant’. Would you like to tell the world, who was those people in your case? Any specific incidence that you would like to share with the readers?

Ans. Success is always a collective effort. Every one supported me in my journey my family, my teachers, colleagues in offices and friends deserve the credit of my success. They believed in me supported me and gave me the courage to keep going during the most difficult times.

 Khadubhai: Thanks a lot for the valuable Knowledge and Experiences you shared, hope that it will inspire youth more and more and you will become a great source of inspiration. I was a bit late in publishing this Interview and I am sorry for that. Wishing you all the best for the Great Job.

  41. within a week for sure....means by next friday

  43. Bhai lagta result election k baad aayegaa

    1. sahi pakde hain....is hisab se mains 2018 mai hoga pakka....ab election mai busy ho jayenge hppsc wale....

      this chairman has ample time

  46. this is called lack of effective,transparent and accountable governance...if hppsc reads these comments they will frame excuses like overburden and cumbersome workload....but they have to learn from upsc who gave result of 3 lac aspirants in just 40 days........alongwith prenotified dates for mains....

  47. Kitne insensitive hai Hppsc wale...aj call karke pucha toh bol rahe ki HPPSC ki site dekhte raho result aa jayegi...I wanted a fixed date toh unhone kaha ki mujhe ni pata....abhi kuch pata ni hai result ka...so weird

  48. What with these rotten north Indian PSCs...from BPSC to HPPSC the conditions are almost same....same ineptness,same corruption,same excusing tendencies....in my view the only possible solution is to handover their functions to UPSC.....otherwise we all candidates will be a bunch of rotten eggs....our dreams will shatter seviourly....

  49. Rightly said.......

  50. i think we all agitate for fixing dates of hpas exam

  51. Good suggestion.but how to make it possible

  52. By writing letters to commision and making a press release

    1. Press release is a better option for putting some pressure on them

  53. Maine phone kia to bola 15 se pehle aayega

  54. ye log aise hi bolte hain.inko khud ko nhi pata............ek toh phn nhi uthate aur galti se utha lia toh koi jawab nhi hota.......and govt boasts of effective governance...

  55. This is the difference between civils service and armed forces army organise to hoyi hai apna kam to karti hai civil Mein apna kam dossron par dal dete gain
