Agnihotri of Himachal Pradesh , daughter of a bus conductor passed out with flying colors winning the
coveted Prime Minister's Baton and the Home Ministry's Revolver for being the
best all round trained officer of
the 65th batch of IPS ( Pls
note. it is not some tamga as shown in the show which can be carelessly hit by
the training officers )
She also bagged the Vandana Malik Trophy for the best all-round female officer trainee, L B Sewa Trophy for the best female officer trainee in outdoor subjects, Alakh Sinha Trophy for investigation, G S Arya Trophy for best officer trainee in co-curricular activities and the Home Ministry's Trophy for best essay writing on 'communal harmony and national integration'.

The IPS Association's Sword of Honour for the best outdoor officer trainee went to R Bhaaskaran who has been allotted the Andhra Pradesh cadre.
The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, where Indian Police Service (IPS) officers are trained, has got its first woman chief in its 65-year-old history. The Union home ministry on Tuesday appointed Aruna Bahuguna, a 1979 batch IPS officer of Andhra Pradesh cadre, as NPA director.
She is also the first woman to be posted as an SDG in the three-lakh strong CRPF, which is the nodal agency for anti-Naxal operations. She retires in February 2017.==============================================================================
Excellent thread. Though I am familiar with most of the curriculum, it is a great effort you have made for the forum. Very informative and precise. Good job.
I come from a family of civil servants. One of my students is in the Academy at present. When ever I have a doubt I go back to him and he clarifies the point. Rules keep changing. So it is my student who keeps me updated. My family members are into the civil service but older and out of touch with present day rules as they passed out long time back.
