A diversified profile, spreading over more than twenty five years, is a blend of Civil Service and Judiciary. Commencing with academic excellence, my career witnessed grooming at Civil Services Academy. The training inputs added to my acumen in administration as well as legal fields.

            Additionally, my training abroad further augmented my research skills. While exposure in international environment broadened my mental horizon, my association with implementation of institutional reform initiatives inculcated analytical approaches and report writing techniques.

             Contribution to policy making process both at Provincial as well as Federal level has been a distinctive feature of my career. Working with stalwarts of the judicial hierarchy remained a privilege. Event management and provision of logistics remained an additional portfolio throughout.

            The span of my experience over the years has led me to have in-depth technical knowledge of Computers. Supplementary to the above occupational merits, I possess good interpersonal and communication skills with commitment to achieve targets.
