This is a first in the town's history, as a woman from a minority group has been selected as the AC.
In an exciting new development, Pakistan now has a female Hindu officer, who will assume charge as assistant commissioner (AC) in Hassanabdal.
This is a first in the town’s history, as a woman from a minority group has been selected as the AC. 27-year-old Dr. Sana Ramchand Gulwani has taken over as the town’s assistant commissioner and administrator. She has become the first female member of the Hindu community to pass the 2020 CSS or Central Superior Services test and gotten accepted into the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS).

Gulwani assumed charge as the assistant commissioner and administrator of the city last week. While talking to a news source, she remarked that in order to crack the tough exam, she had to delete all social media handles and completely isolate herself from social media.
She added that to succeed on the first attempt, you need to give ample attention and put in the effort. Likewise, it all depends on how many hours you dedicate to the purpose.
Who is Dr. Sana Ramchand Gulwani?
Dr. Sana grew up in the tiny village of Chak in Shikarpur, Sindh. She got her elementary and secondary education from a local government school and obtained her MBBS (Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) from Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University.
Gulwani continued her urology education, and after she completed it, she started studying for the highly competitive CSS examination. According to Dr. Sana, her family did not want her to see the administration and had desired a career in medicine for her, but she ended up reaching both goals. She said that women who work in the bureaucracy are brave and do excellent work, and she’ll try to follow in their footsteps.
