Blog For IAS Students

The UPSC Civil Services Exam is generally considered the toughest in the world. Millions of candidates fight every year for less than a thousand seats. That means a success rate as low as 0.2%. With odds like that, an IAS aspirant needs the best guidance possible. And this is exactly what Mr Raj Malhotra envisioned when he founded this Top IAS Coaching Institute in Chandigarh with Mr Jagpal Dhanoa(IPS).

The team behind this endeavour is a combination of experience and youth. Although Raj Sir himself has more than 14 years of 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 contemporary and dynamic understanding of the UPSC CSE is intended to complement the experience of Mr Raj Malhotra.

 We respect the fact that you wish to climb up on one of the highest peaks of success in this country, i.e. the Civil Services Examination (UPSC). Without an iota of dishonesty in our words, we wish to make you understand that what you’re seeking is POSSIBLE.

You should know that anyone can bounce back from devastating setbacks and anyone can master the ‘art of achieving and maintaining success’. To paraphrase Will Smith, “Success is not this wonderful, esoteric, elusive, god-like feature that only the special among us will ever taste – you know it’s something that truly exists in all of us.”

Trekking high up the mountains must be tiring, but the view is worth it. There will be moments in this journey when you’ll incur a lot of pain, disappointment and your patience might run out of your control. It is at that moment when you need us the most, as your hand-holder, your guide, someone who can push you through this hard trek. We’ll prepare you to trek the peak without a rope by dislodging the ‘fear of fall’ from your mind and subsequently strengthen your knees to endure the highest amount of pain that can come across your way.
