A son of a farmer, who also used to go to Kolkata in winters to work as a seasonal rickshaw puller, Khan believes that hard work pays off when one is focused and nothing seems impossible.
Hailing from the remote Nigeenpora Kund village about 80 km from here in south Kashmir, Tanveer Ahmad Khan did primary schooling from Government Primary School, Kund, and later from Government High School Waltengoo, officials said.
They said Khan passed Class 12 from Government Higher Secondary School, Razloo Kund and did Bachelor of Arts degree from Government Degree College Anantnag in 2016.
Khan has been a bright student from the very beginning, secured the third rank in the University of Kashmir entrance test and got himself admitted in the post-graduate course in economics at Kashmir University, the officials said.
“During the Covid period, I confined myself to the four walls of my room and started preparing for the IES examination while doing my M.Phil. I never let Covid impact my schedule of studies,” Khan said.
In his message to the youth of J&K, Khan said they should think out of the box and look for alternate career choices.
“The youth of J&K are brilliant who can excel in every field and they should look for alternate careers than the conventional ones,” he said.
“I worked very hard and considered my first attempt as my last attempt and in the end I achieved this feat,” he said.
Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Simha congratulated Tanvir on his success and wished him the best for his future.
