  1. Thankyou for the above information. It was very helpful .
    It is for all those who are preparing for the IAS exams. I was preparing for IAS Exam and was looking for regular coaching but was unable to find. Then i opted for the online course for IAS general studies and it was beyond my expectations. It is both time and cost effective. So got myself enrolled at :
    IAS General Studies and CSAT Prelims Online Video Coaching Course

    Check it guys!! it's a must and a great Online Coaching course for IAS preparation.
    hope it was helpful!! thanks
