SRINAGAR: Athar Amin Zargar, an officer in the Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Services (JKAS), has been offered a place in two highly competitive Master’s programs in public policy at the world’s top-ranking universities, the London School of Economics (LSE), and the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (NUS). This is an impressive accomplishment, considering the stiff competition and the institutions’ reputation as leading schools for public policy.

Zargar, who is currently serving as the Sub Divisional Magistrate at Thathri sub-division of Doda district in Jammu and Kashmir, has been recognized for his outstanding work in the public sector. He has been involved in various infrastructure development projects, including dams, bridges, roads, and building construction. Additionally, he has assisted new entrepreneurs in establishing their businesses in the conflict region of Kashmir. In 2018, he became the Block Development Officer, generating employment for 12,000 rural households and building footpaths, schools, playfields, and bridges in rural areas. Since 2020, he has been responsible for maintaining law and order and executing welfare schemes and services of the government as the sub-divisional magistrate at Thathri.

Zargar’s contributions extend beyond his professional accomplishments. He has introduced and provided guidance for starting snow skiing in the Doda district, founded and heads a trekking group named “Team Caliper,” and established white water rafting on the river Chenab. His work has earned him recognition, including the National Award for 2018-19 from the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, and a state award from the government of Jammu and Kashmir for implementing the National Food Security Act.

Zargar’s admission to LSE and NUS is a testament to his leadership skills and dedication to public service. This achievement highlights his academic and professional capabilities, opening doors to new opportunities and exposure to different cultures and ways of thinking. Zargar’s journey from an engineering graduate to a public servant is a remarkable one. His achievements reflect his commitment to making a positive difference in society and serve as an inspiration to young people aspiring to work in the public sector.

Zargar’s offers from top universities worldwide are expected to prepare him for a future role in public service on a larger scale. The LSE and NUS are renowned institutions that attract top talent from across the globe, and Zargar’s success is a reflection of his outstanding work and leadership qualities.
