Coaching centre for UPSC Exams at Mumbai Hajj House

Malegaon: The Hajj Committee officials have decided to extend the admission date for its UPSC Coaching Centre by ten days. The decision in this regard was announced by the Hajj Committee, CEO Abbas Mukadam yesterday.


"We have decided to extend the admission date till August 26. Earlier, the last date for the admission was August 16", he said.


On the current status, he said, "By August 18, we have received 170 applications."


"90% of the applications received are from the girls and as many number are from Maharashtra", he said.


"Rest 10% applications have been received from the states that include Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Bengal and Kashmir", he added.


The final admission would be done on the basis of written test to be conducted at Hajj House in Mumbai in September.


Started in 2009, the Hajj Committee of India's IAS & Allied Services Coaching & Guidance cell has a capacity of 50 students.


In its first batch in 2009, the centre had prepared a total of 30 students who appeared for the Civil Services exams held in May 2010, the result of which is expected any time,


The Hajj Committee is charging a meager monthly fee of 2000 rupees per month from every student, though total discount and special scholarships are also being considered for the eligible students belonging to Below Poverty Line (BPL) families.

The fees that the Hajj Committee would be taking from the students would include the tuition fees, lodging and meals during the entire course.

For actual academic activities, the Hajj Committee has appointed S. A. M. Hashmi - former principal Akbar Peerbhoy College, Mumbai known for his vast experience in competitive exams as Director. Hashmi is assisting the Hajj Committee in finalising the list of the faculties and resource persons to handle the training sessions.

The Hajj Committee’s decision to start the training centre for the civil services exams has its roots in the growing concern over the inappropriate percentage of the Muslim community in the coveted IAS, IPS, IFS and other cadres that became manifold after the release of the Sachar Committee report in 2006.

Jamia Hamdard in Delhi led by renowned academician Syed Hamid and the one run by Maulana Azad National Urdu University are some of the other centers in India that earlier started such coaching centers for the Muslim students.

Application forms can be downloaded from Hajj Committee's website and sent directly to the Director, Coaching and Guidance Cell.


Application form and other details can be obtained by POST also.
