A Rajasthan Administrative Services (RAS) officer, Yadav was promoted to IAS rank in 2015. A case under section 420 (cheating), 467 (and 13(1)(D) of Prevention of Corruption Act were filed against him when he was an RAS officer. However, even when the investigation in the case was on, he was promoted as an IAS. Yadav is one of the 68 officers brought in by the newly elected Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in the large-scale bureaucratic reshuffle he undertook within days of swearing in.
