Consequently, decent amount of hard work and blessings of my family, friends and the Almighty is all what it took to clear the exams,” said Yunus, a resident of Dayanand Nagar, Bahadurgarh.He disclosed that he had to face lot of difficulties when his academic documents went missing after availing the first chance to civil services in 2008.

One should take every attempt seriously and put his/her best foot forward.” Yunus belongs to a middle class family.
