New Delhi: 31 Muslim candidates cracked this year’s civil services examination, close to last year’s number. Overall, 761 candidates made it to the prestigious UPSC this year.

The number of successful Muslim candidates had reduced this year compared to last year when 42 candidates had cleared the civil services exam. They constitute 4.07 percent out of the total 761 successful candidates.

More than fifty percent of the successful candidates in this list of 31 received their coaching and training at the Jamia Millia Islamia’s Residential Coaching Academy, New Delhi alone.
