Hyderabad: Ira Singhal, an IRS officer who has topped the prestigious civil services examination, says she hopes that her feat will inspire people to have a different perspective when looking at girls, especially the differently-abled ones.

"I have been preparing for this since 2010. I think people will now have a different perspective when looking at girls, specially disabled girls," Singhal said.

The UPSC results this year have seen four women grab the top five spots.

A total of 1,236 candidates have been recommended for appointment to IAS, IFS, IPS and central services in the results announced on Saturday afternoon.

A total of 254 candidates have also been kept in a consolidated reserved list.

While Singhal topped the examination, candidates Renu Raj and Nidhi Gupta stood second and third respectively.
