Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh State Waqf Board has launched a unique initiative to spread awareness about the civil services examination. The target group is students of classes 9, 10, 11, 12, under graduation, and college teachers.
Apart from Civil Services Examination, the board is trying to spread awareness about higher professions. The aim of the webinars is to help students in setting early goals. Over a decade ago, the Sachar committee report had mentioned that the representation of Muslims in civil services, especially in the IAS and IPS areas is marginal. Citing the report, the board said that there is a need to create awareness in the community.
