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.

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.

The UPSC exam has changed a great deal in the past 10 years. Questions earlier were more factual and descriptive. That meant that large volume of rote learning (‘Ratta’ in colloquial terms) was sufficient for cracking the exams. Today however, questions are a lot more analytical and opinion based. This means that candidates must have excellent understanding of fundamentals and firm conceptual grasp over the subject to excel. Moreover they also need to possess the intellectual flexibility to interpret tricky questions and answer them correctly. These qualities of conceptual soundness, intellectual clarity and improvisation are the things we focus at in these classes.

The team behind this endeavour is a combination of experience and youth. Although Raj Malhotra has 14 years of teaching experience, what really matters is that the quality of his mentorship has allowed literally hundreds of students to crack this exam and become high ranking IAS, IPS and IRS officers. The core team’s youth and contemporary understanding of the UPSC exam is intended to compliment the experience of Mr. Raj Malhotra. With this unassailable combination we intend to develop a holistic approach among our students towards this exam – An approach that is vital to success at all levels in the UPSC exam. And with this team backing you, those bad odds of 0.2% are immaterial.
