Among the top hundred successful candidates are four Muslims. They are Faiz AQ Ahmed Mumta (Rank 17), Abid Husaain Sadique (Rank 27), Md Musharraf Ali Farooqui (Rank 80) and Sana Akhter (Rank 90).

Religion of two successful candidates Ruhi Dugg and Tarannum Verma cannot be verified.

In 2013, 30 Muslims were among the successful candidates, four of them were among top 100.

The performance of successful Muslim candidates is almost same in numbers if compared with the results of last few years. In 2009, a total of 31 Muslims were in the list of 791 successful candidates. Though percentage wise it shows a marginal decline.

Likewise, in 2010 among the 875 successful candidates 21 were Muslims with Dr. Shah Faisal of Kashmir topping the exam at the national level.

Similarly in 2011, 31 Muslims were among the 920 successful candidates whereas in 2012 too 30 Muslims were selected for the civil services.

The results are particularly worrisome for the community as there are quite a few organisations which are running campaigns at different level to increase the representation of Muslims in the civil services.

Compare to their population in the country which is about 13-14%, only about 02% are in the civil services.

13 candidates who were trained at the coaching centre run by Zakat Foundation of India are also among those succesfully cracking the coveted exam considered as most difficult in India. Of these 13 candidates 12 are Muslims.

The results are based on the scores of the candidates comprising a written test (held in December 2013) followed by personality test interviews (held in April-June 2014).

The results can be accessed on the UPSC website.

This is the highest intake of civil servants through this examination, nearly double the 580 civil servants recruited in 2009. An additional 210 candidates have been placed in the reserve list.

While 517 candidates have cleared the examination in the general category, 326 belong to Other Backward Classes, 187 Scheduled Caste and 92 to Scheduled Tribe categories.

As many as 180 candidates have made it to the highly-coveted IAS, 32 to Indian Foreign Services and 150 to Indian Police Service.

The maximum (710) number of candidates has been selected for Central Services Group 'A' and the rest (156) to Group 'B' Services.
