News : ‘Positive attitude can help crack KAS exams’


Kashmiri youth should develop a positive attitude towards learning while preparing for administrative examinations. This was stated by Commercial Taxes Officer (CTO), S S Bukhari while addressing a workshop held here by Kashmir Study Circle (KSC) on Sunday.

“Develop a tempo during your bachelors. Most of the people don’t have the basic knowledge of administrative exams,” he said, while addressing to KAS aspirants present at the workshop. 

“Future belongs to those who believe in their dreams,” he said.

“People have a psychological deterrent that this exam is very expensive, but this is not a costly affair. Joining coaching institute is not necessary but it is good to some extent,” he said, adding that most of the coaching centers here charge about 30,000 to 35,000 rupees for teaching General Studies subject only, and PG students don’t require guidance in their own subjects,” he added.

Decline in the share of Kashmiris in the state administrative services in recent years has left Kashmiri youth frustrated and discriminated. These views were expressed by a group of Kashmir Administrative Service (KAS) pass outs in a workshop held here by Kashmir Study Circle (KSC) on Sunday.
Director of KSC, Jalil A Lone said, “We have opened this institute to motivate students towards participating in KAS, IAS and other competitive exams. KSC has decided to pool in the expertise of more than two dozen teachers/administrators, each one being a distinguished and famed expert of an area.”
Wasim Raja, a KAS pass out said, “You need effort commitment and confidence in yourself to pass such exams.”
He said that according to a survey conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), about 30-40 percent of the third division holders qualify the administrative exams. 

Meanwhile, wishing anonymity, a KAS pass out from Jammu on the sidelines of the workshop said, “Unfortunately in the recent years, justice has eluded Kashmir division with the result that disparities between Jummuites and Kashmiris have increased.”
He said: Kashmiri youth who failed to secure proper representation in government jobs feel frustrated and discriminated. This induces a tendency among them to withdraw from the main stream of national progress.” Deputy  Registrar Cooperative Viqar Giri, Assistant Director Social  Welfare Seher Shah, BDO Aziz Rather,  Assistant Director & Protocol Sandeep Sing Bali,  Information officer Adeel Sleem,  BDO Sarfarz , Agricultural Officer N Mehmood Khan,  Deputy Superintendent of Police Raja Zohaib, were also present on the occasion and had an interaction with the KAS aspirants.
