According to officials, several categories of books are kept in the library to instill the reading habit in young people. This library would specifically meet the needs of aspiring civil servants who wish to prepare for the UPSC and KAS exams.
The library was inaugurated on Gandhi Jayanti by IAS officers ShakilGanai and Haamid Bukhari, who passed the UPSC Civil Services Examination in 2015 and 2016 respectively and both are from Ganderbal district.
Previously, a first NGO career counseling and interaction program had been held at Ganderbal Town Hall for aspiring civil servants. Civil service qualifiers said that one can easily pass the prestigious Indian Administrative Service Exam (IAS) through an approach of goal setting, proper planning, proper direction and hard work.
It is common knowledge that the people of J&K are endowed with an intellectual endowment par excellence. This examination is therefore a natural opportunity to test this endowment possessed by a candidate. All that is needed is proper guidance and directed effort with the right approach, ”said Haamid Bukhari.
Bukhari is posted as ROC Kashmir and official liquidator attached to the High Court of J&K and Ladakh.
ShakeelGanie, posted as the Income Tax Deputy Commissioner, said he wanted to educate young people about public service so that more young people in the district could participate to serve their people.
Meanwhile, aspirants to the civil service praised the efforts of the organizers and said that such programs should be organized in the future and that they prove to be beneficial for aspirants to the civil service.
The program ended with the distribution of certificates of appreciation to municipal workers for carrying out the cleanliness campaigns and carrying out the GanderbalSwach.
