Rehana Bashir, the first woman to clear IAS from Kashmir Poonch district

Rehana Bashir, the first woman to clear IAS from Kashmir Poonch district

April 11, 2019

Rehana Bashir became the first woman to clear IAS from Kashmir's Poonch district. She is an MBBS graduate and Rehana cleared the exams in her second attempt. Amir Bashir, Rehana's brother is employed with the Indian Revenue Service(IRS).

 

"It was not easy for me to take the stress, but my brother, who is already into administration, guided me. There were instances when I questioned myself about my decision, but friends and family members reminded me of my ultimate goal in life," she says.

 

What is your goal in life? Why did you decide to join civil services after getting a medical degree?

While I was doing an internship in November 2016, I realised that I can serve people better by taking part in governance. While I was in college, my world was confined into books, but once I started working, I could understand ground realities, and I realise that I want to do something more than just being a doctor. As a doctor, I can only treat a patient but I cannot solve his problems overall.

 

There are a number of issues which can solve a lot of health problems, such as access to clean drinking water, proper roads, good food, cleanliness, health and hygiene, and so on. With this job, I will be able to serve people better.

Amid the political wave of former IAS topper, Shah Faisal's People's Party, Rehana thinks that she wants to bring change in the society, execute government policies in the country and not just Kashmir. Rehana mentioned her patriotism towards the country, saying, "I will happily work in any state of our country and I am not restricted only to Kashmir. I want to serve my country first."

 

Work strategy

As soon as a project will be given to Rehana, she plans to read about the area, know the ground realities, become a part of policy implementation. "I want to know my duties, fulfil my responsibilities, and act as per the demand of the situation," she adds.
