Question: I am a student of MA (Urdu). Please tell us how can I become a lekhpal?
Syed Iqbal Mirza, Rampur
Answer:Lekhpal is a clerical level post wherein selection is usually done through an entrance exam. The minimum qualification required for appearing in this examinationis 10+2 school education.
The age limit to appear in this examination is 18 to 35 years. However, since you are doing MA (Urdu), we recommend that you think about other career options also where prospects are bright. For example, Urdu teacher in government schools, Urdu journalism, editing and translation work in Urdu publishing institutions, etc. You can also think about lecturer ship in colleges and universities after clearing NET.
