Mumbai: In an important step towards giving the Indian civil services an inclusive look, a Mumbai based NGO and top experts of the filed are running a campaign to select talented students from the marginalized sections of the country so as to train them free of cost for the coveted exams.


"Aishabai & Haji Abdul Latif Charitable Trust, a renowned NGO based in Mumbai, has joined hands with the country's top UPSC and MPSC coaching classes to select and train talented students free of cost for one year", Farooque Naikwade, the main architect of the campaign said while talking to


Naikwade - author of the books 'Steelframe' and 'IASMantra', is responsible for bringing hundreds of students from rural area and lower socio-economic strata including minorities into the administration.


"Under the campaign, Steelframe Talent Search Abhiyan, the trust in association with Synergy Study Point of Pune, Discovery IAS of New Delhi and Liven Information technologies Pvt. Ltd. is conducting examination at 14 centres across India to select 100 students to be trained 50 each for UPSC and MPSC exams", he added.


The exams to be held on September 30, 2012 will select talented students based on written tests comprising of three sections. Out of them a total of 100 students - 50 for UPSC and 50 for MPSC, will then be selected after personal interviews.


Though the test is open to all, there is a 50 per cent reservation for the students from the minority community.


It is said that there is a gap in Indian policy due to the inadequate representation of people from rural areas and from the minority communities specially the Muslims in the Indian Civil Services.


It is expected that the campaign running side by side with other NGOs of the country will help boost the tally of marginalised sections of the country in the Indian civil services.
