In 2016, 36 Muslims had cleared the prestigious exams, while the number stood at 38 in 2015, 34 in 2014 and 30 in 2013. The increase in the number is a positive sign for the Muslim community.
The selected UPSC candidates are recommended for various high-level government posts which include IAS, IFS and IPS and several other allied services.
In India, Muslims comprise 13.4 per cent of the total population but they are dismally represented in the top government services, often due to lack of education and unavailability of resources. Some reports suggest that the representation of Muslims are only 2 per cent in the civil services.
On Wednesday evening, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) declared the final result of the 2016 civil services examinations and like the previous year, this year too a woman Nandini KR, emerged as a topper. Others who secured their position in the top five lists are Anmol Sher Singh, Gopala Krishna, Saumya Pandey and Abhilash Mishra.
