Keeping this in view, a 2016 batch Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer, Sadu Narasimha Reddy, who is now working as the Additional Commissioner, Central GST, Vishakapatnam, has created a ‘WhatsApp’ group named ‘Competitive WGL’ to help candidates who are preparing for Union Public Service Commission and other competitive exams from erstwhile Warangal district..
