Learn from Delhi Police Sub-Inspector Nirmala Singh how to prepare for a challenging job with long hours and get your dream job. On the basis of her hard work, dedication and passion, Nirmala will now become a Civil Judge/Metropolitan Magistrate from SI. Nirmala first made herself eligible to appear for the Delhi Judicial Services Exam (DJS) by studying law along with the difficult job of Delhi Police. And then prepared for this recruitment exam and cracked it in the first attempt. She is only the third Delhi Police personnel who has achieved the feat of passing the Delhi Judicial Services Exam while actively performing her job.

Learned ABCD in sixth grade
The success story of Nirmala, born in Sarai village of Palwal in Haryana, is a big lesson for those people who were satisfied with small achievements without fulfilling their dreams and sat down tired of defeat. Due to her father being in the army, Nirmala did her schooling from many states but her primary education was from the government Hindi medium school of the village itself. He did not get a chance to study English subject in 5th class. In today’s times, when children learn ABCD in play school, they are taught alphabet in school till class 6th. Going forward, considering his future needs, he shifted to English medium in 8th class. Although there was a lot of difficulty in the beginning, he did not lose courage and turned his weakness into strength by learning English. He studied 11th and 12th from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Sikkim.

Had to pass first year exam twice
It was not an easy task for Nirmala to do B.Com from Delhi University (DU). The migration policy of Delhi University made it difficult for him to do B.Com. He did his first year from St. Ann’s College (Osmania University), Hyderabad and took admission in the second year from Jesus and Mary College (JMC) in DU under the migration policy. Due to migration policy, he had to appear for the first year exam again as per the syllabus of DU. He got only six months for the second year exam.

Law with very difficult job of many hours
After graduation (2006-09), Nirmala started preparing for various recruitment examinations including SSC, IBPS Bank to get a government job. He cleared SSC Delhi Police SI, CAPF SI (CPO) exam and IBPS Bank PO exam. He chose the post of Delhi Police SI. After 14 months of training, in 2015 he was posted as SI (Investigation) at Govind Puri Police Station, Delhi. Being an Investigation SI, he had to make several trips from police station to court and from court to police station. During this time, he got a chance to know the judiciary system and he decided to become a judicial officer. For this he had to crack the Delhi Judicial Services exam. But for Delhi Judicial Services, the eligibility requirement is a law degree whereas he had a B.Com degree.

He passed the recruitment examination of Delhi Judicial Exam 2022 in the first attempt. During his LLB studies, he was posted in police stations like Govind Puri and Sagarpur where a large number of crime cases are registered. Being a Sub-Inspector (Investigation), he was responsible for the initial investigation of the case, interrogating the accused, including investigation and presenting them in the court. Many times he had to stay in the police station till late night. She used to appear in the court in the morning along with the accused and the investigation. Despite all this, she used to attend evening classes of LLB at DU Law Faculty (North Campus), which was on the other side of Delhi from her police station. He obtained his law degree with first division.

In a special conversation with Live Hindustan, Nirmala Singh said, ‘I used to leave at 7 in the morning. In the morning court, the cases had to be investigated and the accused had to appear in the court. Many times the work of investigating cases of more than one police station had to be handled. Being the investigating SI, he had to prepare all the necessary things for questioning and investigating the accused in the cases. Govind Puri is one corner of South Delhi and North Campus is another corner of Law Faculty Delhi. That’s why she used to run around a lot and do law classes in the evening. It also happened many times when I had to stay in the police station till late night and got sleep only for two-three hours.

How did you study law and prepare for the recruitment exam? On this question Nirmala said, ‘I did not let my traveling time go to waste. Used it extensively in studies. Wherever I went, I always had a book with me. Be it metro or battery rickshaw, I always used to read a book during the journey. She used to save the important things of the syllabus in her phone and read them whenever she got a chance. During this period she was very less active on social media. Social life was cut off. My family has played a big role in this success, they supported me a lot.

He said, ‘I also got full support from the police department. My work and responsibilities here helped me a lot in cracking the judicial exam.
