The Academy, with its limited infrastructure and resources but through its innovative-cum-interactive sessions and consistent test practices has been able to produce more than 125 IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS, judges and state civil servants throughout the country.

This success is the result of resolute efforts, benefaction and enthusiastic support of Hazrat Maulana Mohammad Fazlur Rahim Mujaddidi.

It is 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.
