Haritha V Kumar initially did not believe it was true as she thought her friends had played a prank.
"Initially, I could not believe it was true. I thought I was being fooled by my friends who called me over phone to congratulate," Haritha told a Malayalam TV channel from Faridabad.
"I thank my teachers, well-wishers and friends for my success," said Haritha, who hails from Kerala's capital of Thiruvanathapuram.
"This victory is the result of her hard work, dedication and determination. We thank God and all those who have helped her," Haritha's parents said.
An engineering graduate, Haritha chose economics and Malayalam as her main subjects for the civil service.
