Three from Malegaon among 86 selected for free UPSC/MPSC coaching

Sunday October 21, 2012 12:34:46 PM, Hena Farhat,



Mumbai: Three students of Malegaon are among the 86 who have been selected for a year-long coaching to be organised free of cost for targeted preparation of the civil services exams to be held next year.


These students were selected based on the written tests and personal interviews conducted by Mumbai’s Aishabai Charitable Trust as part of its nationwide talent search program that ended Thursday.


Others who have been selected are seven from Ahmadnagar, six from Aurangabad, four each from Solapur and Beed, three from Bhiwandi, two from Nanded, one each from Osmanabad, Meerath (Uttar Pradesh) and Sangli. Rest are from Pune, Mumbai Jalgaon, Hyderabad and Latur.

“Of the total 86 students selected from all across the country, three students Qamar Abbas, Pranay Ashok Hiray and Javed Iqbal are from Malegaon”, Atul Lande, Director of Pune’s Synergy Study Point, one of the coordinators of the Steelframe Talent Search Abhyan, said while talking to

Brainchild of Farook Naikwadi, the campaign is aimed at increasing the representation of people from rural and backward areas in the civil services sector in order to what he termed as a move to give the coveted policy making sector of the country a “more inclusive” look.

He said that the selection of the students was based on the written tests given by about 1700 students at 14 different locations across the country on September 30. “Among them were 137 students of Nashik, Dhule and Nandurbar districts who had appeared for the test at the Malegaon centre”, he said.

A total of 285 students including 21 from Nashik district who passed the written tests were then called to Pune for personal interviews held in second week of October.


“All the 86 students selected after the personal interviews would now be trained for UPSC and MPSC exams conducted by the centre and state respectively. The entire expenses of the coaching would be borne by Aishabai Charitable Trust”, he said.

The Steelframe talent hunt result is seen as a step forward by the local organisations which are working since 2007 when one of the Malegaonians Qaiser Abdul Haque, for the first time in local history, cracked the UPSC exams to mobilise and encourage students to opt for the coveted career.


“Selection of three of our students under the Steelframe Talent Search Abhiyan is a morale boosting event for us. After Qaiser, they have become our role models to encourage others”, Nihal Anasri of Citizens for Development & Peace (CDP) who coordinated the Steelframe written tests locally said.
