Directorate of Students Welfare, Central University of Kashmir organized a one-day sensitization programme regarding competitive civil services examination in collaboration with Ignited Minds, a civil services academy, on Monday at the university's Nowgam campus.

As per a University spokesman, Vice Chairman, Muslim Waqf Board, Peer Muhammad Hussain was the Guest of Honour, who in his address, stressed on the need to tap the potential of youth.

"Our youth have talent, confidence but they have no guidance. We have to serve the nation by getting educated. There is no other way," Hussain said.

He suggested creation of a guidance-cum-counseling cell at Central University of Kashmir for civil services aspirants.
"I want Central University of Kashmir to create an institute within the institute where guidance can be given to aspirants of civil service examinations. If a poor boy has talent, he should be well guided," he added.
Responding to Peer Muhammad Hussain's suggestion, Registrar, Prof Zargar said: "The University will discuss the idea put forward by him and will see how it can be conceptualized and implemented."
Dr Ruveda Salam, technical expert of the session, stressed on the importance of proper guidance for civil service examinations.
She said there is a need of having more people from Jammu and Kashmir in Indian Administrative Services "which can help them influence policy decisions pertaining the state".
