17 ZFI fellows crack civil services and it is good news. The final result of Union Public Service Commission was out on Tuesday and seventeen ZFI Fellows have been selected, according to Syed Zafar Mahmood, director of Zakat Foundation of India that runs the institute.
Okhla-headquartered ZFI has been running the institute for years helping students from deprived communities, including Minorities and Dalits, to crack Civil Services Examinations. Its performance has been appreciable as every year it several ZFI fellows have been making it into UPSC.
“It is good to see the hard work put in by ZFI management. Zafar Mahmood should be congratulated for the good result. Moreover, they have been sending aspirants to the UPSC every year. It only shows that hard work and right direction can help aspirants crack the most prestigious exams in India. We hope that such bodies should be opened more so as to increase the share of minorities in UPSC,” said Jawed Iqbal Khan.
For the second year in a row a Delhi girl has topped in the UPSC. This year 21-year-old Tina Dabi topped the civil services examination (CSE) 2015 in her very first attempt. The second position was scooped by Athar Aamir ul Safi Khan, a resident of Jammu and Kashmir.
“I certainly thought I would make the merit list. But I had never imagined I would top. When I first saw the result, I had to check a few times to be sure,” said Dabi, probably one of the youngest civil services toppers.
