The Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee today awarded Rs one lakh to Anmol Sher Singh Bedi for bagging the second rank in 2016 UPSC exams.
While honouring Bedi with a portrait of the Golden Temple, SGPC president Kirpal Singh Badungar said, he has set a precedent for others and is a source of inspiration for others.
He said the award money would also boost the confidence of Bedi and other Sikh candidates in the future.
In May, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) declared the final results of the civil services examination 2016, with Bedi securing the second rank in the prestigious all-India competition.
He has graduated in engineering from BITS, Pilani.
