Sheer Coincidence: Candidate named Rahul Modi secures 420th rank in UPSC exam

Following the announcement of UPSC exam results on Tuesday, Rahul Modi began trending on Twitter.

The reason – a candidate whose name ironically was a combination of names of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rahul Modi, roll number 6312980, secured the 420th rank, according to the list of qualified candidates announced by the UPSC on Tuesday.

While this was sheer coincidence, the same caught attention of netizens who flooded the internet with their comments. Some users also shared memes.

“Can’t get more bizarre than this – Rank no. 420 – Rahul Modi! Need I say more!” said Ananth Rupanagudi, who describes himself as a railway bureaucrat, on Twitter.

 

 

Another user Ankit Yadav wrote: “What a coincidence..UPSC civil services 2019 results are out and a Candidate named RAHUL MODI secures 420 rank.”

IRS officer Pradeep Singh topped the list of 829 candidates who have qualified for the prestigious civil services, including the IAS, the IPS and the IFS, according to the UPSC.

The top three rank holders — Singh, Jatin Kishore and Pratibha Verma — are serving officers. Singh is a resident of Haryana, while Kishore hails from Delhi and Verma from Uttar Pradesh.
