11 Jammu and Kashmir candidates qualify in UPSC exam 2012

For the first time eleven candidates from Jammu and Kashmir qulaified for IAS, five of them doctors, cracked the civil services examination. Seven of them, including two Pundits, are from the Kashmir Valley. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah described it as the welcome development of the state. "Very heartening to see the number of young men and women from the state qualify the All India Civil Services Exam this year. Well done."Said Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

Syed Aabid Rashid, 30, hailing from Srinagar is ranked at 23th. In 2010 Aabid had appeared in the UPSC for the first time securing 180th rank and was awarded IPS (JK) cadre.
To improve his rank while undergoing training at National Police Academy Hyderabad, Aabid appeared in the UPSC examination. And he improved it remarkably. This is remarkable for inspiration for students appearing in Kashmir Administrative Services.
Inam-ul-Haq Mengnoo, an orthopaedic from South Kashmir's Shopian district has bagged 280th position.
Bashir Ahmad Bhat, a veterinarian, from Sopore has secured 434th rank. Qazi Muhammad Salman Ibrahim figures at 459th ranking. He also hails from Sopore. Sopore is known as hotbed of militancy in the State.
Dr Manazir Jeelani Samoon, a fresh pass-out from Government Medical College Srinagar, has secured 451 rank. Dr Jeelani hails from remote Gurez area of Bandipora and most of his relatives are top bureaucrats of the State.
A Kashmiri Pandit boy Aditya Fotedar has bagged 380th rank in the civil services examination.
Pooja Hali, a Kashmiri Pundit girl, originally a resident of village Hall in district Pulwama and presently putting up in Delhi has made it to the civil services examination securing 169th rank.
Last year also she had qualified the examination with 200th rank. She is the second Kashmiri Pandit girl who qualified the UPSC examination. In 2008 Priyanka Dhar has also qualified the civil services examination having 385th rank. This year lot of students re also appearing in Kashmir Administrative services.
Syed Sehrish Asgar got 118th rank in the list of 910 candidates. She had also topped the Kashmir Administrative Services exam last year.
 At 25, Sehrish Asgar, became first Muslim woman from Jammu and Kashmir to qualify for the Indian Police Service (IPS).
"I was having this dream since my childhood. My father was a civil servant and I wanted to be like him," she says. "But I took my dream very seriously only when I joined college for MBBS".
Hailing from remote Kishtwar district of Jammu, Sehrish says it is challenging for women from Kishtwar to dream about IAS and qualifying it.
"Terrain in Kishtwar is difficult, schools here are far off, and literacy level is 30 percent. Girl child has to walk miles together to reach to her school. That is why people here prefer security of the girl child over education," she said. "I am because we are. It is an effort of lot of people that I have succeeded in pursuing education and qualifying UPSC examination," she said.
Sherish gives the credit of her success to her family especially her father. Her father Syed Asghar Ali is a former bureaucrat of Jammu and Kashmir, who joined politics and is currently a member of J-K's legislative council.
Sehrish's march to success started when she for the first time qualified the J-K Civil services exam even before completing her MBBS. When the results of the Kashmir Administrative Services were announced Sehrish's name figured in the list nut she was declared ineligible because her results of MMBS were yet to be declared.
But Sehrish didn't lose hope. She applied again next year and qualified the exam the second consecutive year. In fact, this time she topped the exam. It is then she cited her eyes on the Indian Administrative Service and qualified the exam. On the selection list, she stands at 118th rank.
Last year, a woman from Ladakh, Owissa Iqbal qualified the civil services but couldn't get IAS cadre because she was at 572th rank on the list. She got IFS and is presently in Delhi.
Sehrish says that the motivation for choosing civil services as a career was to serve her people. "I have preferred the state cadre," she says. "I hope I will get it and come back to my state to serve people here".
Muhammad Aijaz, who hails from village Dharna of Tehsil Mendhar in district Poonch, has also qualified UPSC with rank of 268th rank. He had qualified Indian Revenue Service (IRS) last year. Currently he was posted as Assistant Commissioner Income tax in Mumbai.Kashmir Administrative Services (KAS) is a top most exam in Jammu and Kashmir for cicil services.
Raj Kamal Arya a resident of Jammu has got 88th rank. Arya is the alumni of Army School Domana. He completed his five year Degree in Law from the Law School University of Jammu in 2009.  Vikas Kundal of Miran Sahab Jammu also cleared the examination.Lot of students are expected to appear in Kashmir Administrative Services this year.
