Around four months ago Haj Committee of India had decided to train those Muslim talented youths who are eager to crack the Indian Administrative Service examination but they are unable to clear the exam due to lack of money or means. So far the matter was under consideration but yesterday it was finalized. In Mumbai it will be the first Centre where free training will be available for poor Muslim students for IAS exam.

In yesterday’s meeting Mr. S.A.M Hashmi, ex-principal of Akber Peer Bhai College, Mumbai has been selected as a director of the training centre and four floors of Haj House building have been spared for the purpose which will be used as hostel rooms, class rooms and dining rooms for students while library will be on ground floor.

50 students will be selected for the first batch on the basis of test. Students eligible for UPSC from across the country will be eligible to appear in the test. Among selected students who are financially sound will have to pay Rs. 2000/ as monthly fees while poor students will be provided scholarship along with all the facilities free of cost.

Chief executive officer of Haj Committee of India Mr. Muhammad Owais told media persons: “The centre will provide all the facilities to the students which are required for their training. We are in touch with talented and experienced professors to get their services for the centre. We are advertising about the centre through the newspapers in all parts of the country so that students from whole country may get benefit from the centre” he said.
