The Success Mantra : Honesty top in the list

Mumbai:  Refuting the general perception that there is bias against people from any particular community in UPSC Exams evaluation process, Central Information Commissioner M Mukhtar Ansari said one actually needs tough effort to crack the prestigious Union Public Services Exams.


“Before appearing for UPSC Exams, students think that those at the helm of the affairs must be bias against people belonging to a particular community. It is not so. The evaluation process is fully computerized that cannot recognize a student by his or her identity”, he said.


M Mukhtar Ansari who was in Mumbai to inaugurate the three-day Career Festival organized at Saboo Siddique College Ground in Mumbai was addressing the IAS aspirants at Hajj House on January 09 in a brainstorming session.


“During the personal interview also”, he added, “A student is interviewed by a panel, not by an individual. Moreover, if a student scores less in the interview but gets more marks in other papers, he can still crack the exam.”


Stating that people from other communities prepare their children from the childhood for these exams, he said, “In the Muslim community, however, we have just recently realized the importance of UPSC and other government services. If we really want to get going, we would need more than extra efforts.”


Hajj Committee of India, in a historic decision taken few months back has started its Guidance Cell to prepare Muslim students who are appearing for UPSC exams. The Guidance Cell that began the coaching activities from December 1, 2009 has a total of 30 students from all across the country, most of them being the girl-students.


The students were grilled and interviewed by experts before being given admissions at the Guidance Cell. The Hajj Committee of Indian has reserved three floors of the Hajj House in Mumbai for these students.


The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) will conduct the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination for this year on May 23. Those who pass the final exams are recommended for recruitment to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and other Group 'A' and 'B' central services posts.
