India is home to millions of people who aspire to pass the UPSC Civil Services test and work as IAS officers. To pass the most difficult recruiting exam in the world, applicants put in years of dedicated preparation. The ultimate objective for the majority of people is to become an IAS, but this individual refused to stop there. Former IAS officer Roman Saini is now well-known for co-founding the educational technology portal “Unacademy.”

Without a question, Saini has one of the best minds in the nation. He secured a spot in the medical institution at the age of 16 by passing the competitive AIIMS admissions exam. Roman Saini, then 18 years old, spent six months working at AIIMS’ National Drug Dependence Treatment Centre (NDDTC) after earning his medical degree.

At the age of 22, Saini set out on another difficult endeavour and succeeded in the UPSC CSE. In Madhya Pradesh, he worked as a district collector.

After making that decision, he partnered his buddy Gaurav Munjal in developing the well-known online learning site Unacademy. Unacademy was created as a platform for UPSC coaching programmes without charging students thousands of dollars.

The cornerstone for this commercial empire was the YouTube channel of engineer-turned-entrepreneur Gaurav Munjal, but Roman Saini, a doctor and an IAS official, also deserves praise for growing Unacademy into a Rs 26000 crore corporation.
