Introduction – Proposal

We, JMC NA Alumni are so grateful for JMC for its services for our success and have planned to pay back to the college and community in a fruitful way.

In this thought process some of our Alumni wanted to support the college to start an effective civil services coaching program which will help our young aspirants be successful in serving the community and country.

The idea was greatly appreciated by our college Principal, Management and many other Alumni members.

A team of JMC NA Alumni conducted a feasibility study with some experts, identified some challenges and came up with the following proposal.

Our mission is to provide awareness and training young JMC students to excel in this exam and serve for the betterment of the minority community in Tamil Nadu and India as a whole.


JMC, currently running “Jamal Civil Services Nursery“ part time program. After UG/PG aspirants has to go a fulltime academy to be successful in UPSC program.

Conducted subsequent Zoom meeting with JMC professor Dr. Saifudeen to understand the existing UPSC Nursing program and its progress/challenges.

We had a meeting with Mr. Syed Ali, Head of IKLAS IAS Academy Tirunelveli branch and discussed their achievements and challenges.

Presented this proposal to JMC Civil Services Team along with Principal. We are waiting to hear back from them.

Dr. Ruknudin constantly keeps the Principal and staff updated with the progress and acting as a correspondent between NA Alumni and JMC Management.

Dr. Khan Hekmatyar, a NA Alumnus who had great experience in civil service exams provided good details and challenges about this program.

Program Proposal

Hire experienced faculties of different subjects on hourly basis or fulltime if needed.

Conduct motivational events to keep the interest intact.

Select top 5 highly committed potential aspirants and support them for successive attempts.

Motivate and guide others for successive attempts with limited resources.

Finally motivate the unfortunates for non civil services exams(ex: TNPSC)
