Pranjal Patil takes over as T'puram Sub-Collector

Pranjal Patil, the young woman who battled great odds to become the country’s first visually challenged woman IAS officer, took over as Sub-Collector in Thiruvananthapuram, on Monday.

Pranjal opted to spend her first day in Thiruvananthapuram, familiarising herself with the new environment.

Pranjal said she expected a lot of support from the public and the Collectorate staff. After securing the 124th rank in the 2017 Civil Services Exams, she was posted as Assistant Collector in Ernakulam in 2018.
