IAS officer and doctor are two popular professions in India, but not everyone is able to join them. One inspiring person who became both doctor and IAS is Akshita Gupta.

Dr Akshita Gupta hails from Chandigarh and her father Pawan Gupta is a Principal at Senior Secondary School in Panchkula. Her mother Meena Gupta is a lecturer of Mathematics at a Government Senior Secondary School. 

She started preparing for UPSC exam in the third year and she devoted all her leisure time preparing for the UPSC exam. Then, Akshita worked as a doctor in a hospital while she was preparing for the exam. She did 14 hours shift in hospital and used to study for UPSC exam in the 15 minutes break.  She cleared UPSC exam in her first attempt in 2020 and secured All India Rank of 69.

She choked an effective strategy and focused on topics in which she was weak. “I took all my medicine books and tore off pages related to the UPSC syllabus. It was painful to tear off my books, but it was for the good. I took all the pages, stapled them and made chapters so that I didn’t have to make notes for everything. In this way, I prepared for the medical science optional,” she once said in an interview.

Besides this, Dr Akshita Gupta is very active on social media. She has a Twitter handle named @akshitaguptaIAS and an Instagram handle @14akshita. She has over 18k followers on Twitter and around 24k followers on Instagram.
