Tina Dabi, the IAS exam’s first-place finisher in 2015, is the first woman from a Scheduled Caste (ST) to do so. She began preparing for the UPSC Civil Services Examination in the first year of her degree since she had an ambition of becoming an IAS officer.

They also visited the Netherlands, Paris, and Rome during this time. She married Aamir on March 20, 2018, and he has since become an IAS officer.
After two years of marriage, the IAS couple submitted a mutually consenting divorce petition to a Jaipur family court in November 2020. Prior to this, Tina had changed the last name on her social media accounts to Tina, and Athar had stopped following her on Instagram around the same time. A Jaipur family court granted their request for a divorce in August 2021. She wed Pradeep Gawande, an additional IAS official who is 13 years older than Tina Dabi, on April 20, 2022, at the Hotel Holiday Inn in Jaipur.
