It may be mentioned here that the Civil Services of India (IAS) is
one of the elite and the most prestigious services under the
Government of India. The recruitment for this honoured service is
annually conducted by the Union Public Service Commission, (UPSC).
It may be pointed out here that the Crescent Academy is a division
of Maulana Abdur Rahim Educational Trust, established with a
vision of providing proper guidance and training to the Civil
Services aspirants with special emphasis on creating a sound
academic environment. It was started, over a decade ago, by
Maulana Mohammad Fazlur Rahim Mujaddidi, a great spiritual
personality, academician and social activist of north India.
It goes without saying that the civil servants play a pivotal role
in shaping up the course of the country. It is, therefore, the
primary objective of the academy to prepare the students for
cracking this exam along with inculcating in them moral and human
values so that they may prove themselves as unbiased, humane and
efficient bureaucrats and administrators.
According to Maulana Mujaddidi, who is also a member of the
Consultative Group for Empowerment of Minorities, Planning
Commission of India, the new aspirants who want to appear in the
examination of the elite services can visit the Crescent Academy’s
website www.cacademy.org for details.
It may be noted here that Prof. Ziaul Hasan, retired Principle of
Aligarh Muslim University Polytechnic, Aligarh and Mr. Mohammad
Iqbal Khan, Director of Crescent Academy, Delhi, are the
pathfinders of establishing, guiding and training the aspirants of
various competitive examinations countrywide.
They have lent their
long academic and administrative experience of producing various
Civil and Judicial servants for the services of the nation, And,
it is a matter of pride that the Academy has succeeded in
achieving its objective in such a short span of time.
