Sharma hails from Ajmer, Rajasthan.
According to a report by Patrika, Sharma is also a Hindi lecturer like her husband.
The two met in college and it was their love for Hindi that brought them together.
Vishwas wrote poems to impress Sharma, which also garnered him popularity.
According to a 2014 report by Dainik Bhasker, Dr Sharma’s assets revealed that she owned jewellery worth Rs 26 lakh, and earned Rs 10.5 lakh as a lecturer.
Besides Dr Sharma, others who have been nominated as members include Sangeeta Arya, wife of senior IAS Niranjan Arya, Babulal Katara and journalist Jaswant Rathi.
Outgoing Rajasthan DGP Bhupendra Singh has also been appointed as the chairman of RPSC. Singh was relieved from his post as DGP on Wednesday itself.
