Roman cracked the CSE exam with 18th rank in 2013. Roman wanted to get into IAS to focus on education and health. " in 2011 when i went for medical camp in some village , i realized how poverty means. people were not at all aware about their health, about cleanliness. there was water problem. These were the basic problems. And being a doctor you can only work on secondary causes, and not on primary. That time i decided to go into civil services to make my country better ", said Roman.
Roman is from a small village ' Kotputli ' from Rajasthan. roman's mother is a house wife and father is an engineer. He is the first IAS officer from his family. Generally the classes for UPSC are very expensive and so not everyone can afford them. After cracking the civil services exam, Roman decided to help other UPSC aspirants by giving them free online training for civic services entrance exams.

There he talks about different subjects and queries of students. While talking about unacademy he said, " i was in delhi for 6 years. There i did my studies for AIIMS. In a city like delhi, one has to pay lackhs of money for UPSC coaching classes. A person who is from poor financial background cannot afford such classes. also if you go to Bihar, Rajashthan there many students wants to go into civil services but they do not know what exactly they need to do for getting a good training. They do not have enough resources to study. And so after cracking my IAS exam i decided to come up with ' unacademy '. We want to bring education revolution by giving free coaching to UPSC aspirants. This is non profit job. I get no money here but i give students free lectures ".
Roman meets his students whenever he has time. His students are elder than him but they all call him sir. They all get training through unacademy.

Arjun Gopal, another UPSC aspirant said , " UPSC classes are very expensive. And Delhi is called as a hub for IAS preperations. But all the classes are expensive. So we prepare with Roman sir's videos."
