UPSC Examination, 2008, Muslim Candidates

Girl student tops Muslim UPSC candidates' list

When it is said that women are as capable as men, it is true. A lot of people hope to top the UPSC exams, but not all can. This year's list has 31 Muslim recommendations and the name right at the top is that of a girl's!.

A GIRL candidate topped the list of the successful Muslim Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) candidates when the results were announced. Of the total 791 candidates recommended by the commission in its list for various government posts, 31 were Muslims and the girl candidate topping them in the list is among the top 100 successful UPSC candidates.

According to the press release issued by the UPSC, Sufiyah Faruqui, ranking 20th in the list of 791 candidates, is among the 100 toppers along with being in the list of 31 Muslim candidates. The list includes three other Muslim girls besides Faruqui.

While Sarfaraz Ahmad, ranking 26th, Shaid Iqbal, ranking 51st,Tamboli Ayyaz, ranking 75th, and Sadre Alam, ranking 90th, are other Muslims who are in the top 100, Koya Praveen, ranking 120th, Ayesha Rania, ranking 139th, and Sabiha Rizvi, ranking 303rd, are the other three Muslim girls whose names appear in the list.

The results were announced based on the written Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2008, held by the UPSC in October-November 2008, and the interviews for Personality Test held in March-April, 2009.

A total of 791 candidates have been recommended by the commission for appointment, including 364 General (including 13 Physically Challenged candidates), 236 Other Backward Classes (including seven Physically Challenged candidates), 130 Scheduled Castes’ and 61 Scheduled Tribes’ candidates.

Owing to the poor representation of Muslims in the UPSC sector, Muslim Institutions like Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Jamia Hamdard, Delhi, and Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi, are running special coaching classes for UPSC students since the past three years.

“The result shows that Muslim representation for this year’s UPSC exams stands at 3.92 per cent, a better figure as compared to 3.6 per cent in 2006 and 3.1 per cent in 2007,” said Omair Anas of Centre for West Asian Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, to ummid.com, adding, “However, the achievement is still not at par and the institutions engaged in coaching the Muslim students for UPSC exams should pay special attention to contribute substantially in administrative services.

The recommended candidates will be eligible for various coveted government posts including Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Central Services-Group ‘A’ and Group ‘B’.

Appointment to the various services will be made according to the number of vacancies available with due consideration to the provisions and rules.

The number of seats reported by the Government for the Indian Administrative Service is 120 (60 General, 33 Other Backward Classes, 17 Scheduled Castes and 10 Scheduled Tribes); for the Indian Foreign Service is 26 (13 General, eight Other Backward Classes, four Scheduled Castes and one Scheduled Tribe); for the Indian Police Service is 130 (65 General, 36 Other Backward Classes, 20 Scheduled Castes and nine Scheduled Tribes); for the Central Services Group ‘A’ is 546 (282 General, 146 Other Backward Classes, 81 Scheduled Castes and 37 Scheduled Tribes) and for Central Services Group ‘B’ is 59 ( 34 General, 13 Other Backward Classes, eight Scheduled Castes and four Scheduled Tribes). This includes 20 vacancies for Physically Challenged candidates.
