Two years after its inception,
& Allied Services coaching and guidance cell at the Hajj Committee
of India, Mumbai
finally registered the much needed success when two of its
students cleared the UPSC prelim exams the results of which were
declared August 18.
"Yes, we are glad that two of our
students - Mohd Mzahar of Nellore (Andhra Pradesh) and Salaman Taj
0f Sholapur (Maharashtra), have successfully cleared the UPSC
Prelims. They should now eye for the success in the final exams",
Director of the centre S.A.M. Hashmi said while speaking to
ummid.com on phone.
Mohd Mazhar is a Computer graduate
and Salman Taj is an MBA.
In order to improve representation
of the Muslims in the civil services, the Hajj Committee of India
in September 2009 had started
& Allied Services coaching and guidance cell. Though no student
from its first batch could pass, two of its candidates from the
second batch cleared the prelim exams held June this year.
"A total of 25 students from
our centre had appeared for the exams and we were quite sure that
at least five of them will clear. We are trying to improve
ourselves and are hopeful of better results from now on", Hashmi
From this year
onwards, the Hajj Committee has also signed an agreement with
Synergy Study Centre of Pune for better assistance to its
students. Synergy has to its credit a very good success rate in
UPSC exams for its students.
days before the results were out, Mohd Mazhar was selected by the
Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation as Depot Manager.
"He is now in a
dilemma, to join as Depot Manager at Andhra Pradesh Road Transport
Corporation or appear for the final exams to be held in November.
We are sure he will decide to appear for the UPSC finals", Hashmi
