About The Academy

The UPSC exam is generally considered the hardest in the world. Over 500,000 candidates apply each year and compete for less than a thousand seats. That is 0.2% success rate. With odds like that an IAS aspirant needs the best guidance possible. And this is exactly what Raj Malhotra envisioned when he founded this institute for IAS Coaching alongside Mr. Jasdeep Sodhi and Mr. Jagpal Dhanoa. Later experts in their field like Mr. Haninder Singh, Mr. Shekhar Dutt and Capt. Munish Kishore joined the core team to strengthen and support Mr. Raj Malhotra’s vision.

Why Raj IAS?

Raj Malhotra’s IAS Coaching Chandigarh is based in Sector 11. Raj Malhotra’s IAS coaching Centre is no ordinary UPSC coaching institute where students are herded into class like cattle and fed huge amounts of irrelevant information. It is an organization that mentors its students through one-on-one interaction with teachers. Classes here are interactive, enlightening and goal oriented. Moreover, since the UPSC exam is ever evolving, we have a dynamic course structure and teaching methodology that aims at building up candidates’ intellectual strength and flexibility so that he / she can attempt even the most difficult and unconventional question be it at the preliminary or mains level.
