It has been an irony of fate of Daira that majority of its directors were either good administrators without any penchant of Arabic language in which all the multifarious works of Daira go on, or good Arabic Scholars but void of administrative tactics. Therefore the most coveted category of directors were those who were equally perfect in Arabic language and literature and administration. All praise be to Allah for that late Mohammed Abdul Moid Khan and Prof. Syeda Meherunnisa, Prof. Mohammed Abdul Majeed Siddiqui were such directors who excelled not only in Arabic Language and literature and kindred sciences but also in administrative know-how and strategy. The present Director and the Secretary  Prof. Mohammed Mustafa Shareef is a happy combination of the   above-mentioned qualities. For the time being, he is engaged with the yeoman services of Arabic cause as acting head of Arabic Dept. in Osmania University. It is worthy to note that he has just before three or four month completed his daunting task of head of Arabic Dept. His posting in Daira brought so many laurels to the crown of Daira. He not only redressed the long-standing grievances of employees and created their satisfactory solutions, but also pushed the wheel of Daira in a top gear on the track of productivity and a good sense of responsibility, prevailed both in general employees and in administrative cadre. They are confident that the present situation of Daira is quite understandably synonyms to a bright dawn after Daira had been hanging in financial debacle for a period of more or less two decades.
