IASbaba’s TLP MAINS 2017 OFFLINE PROGRAMME- Inclusive of 30 FREE Seats+Library and Study Centre for 150 Students!

Dear Friends,

We thank you for the countless “Thank you” we have received for the success in UPSC Civil Services Examination in 2016 and performance in Prelims 2017.

Please forgive us if we are not able to reply to each one of you as we are very pressed on time and lot of important issues waiting to happen.

Now that we have got you through prelims it falls upon us to see that you get through the next stage.

Last year we have had countless stories from our TLP Offline (MAINS)  Programme 

Naveen Bhat (Rank 37) , Priyanka (IAS) , Ajay Bidari (IRS), Nimishambha (IRS) , Rutvik Malaviya(IRS) and numerous others passing out successfully.

We are sharing the testimonials from our Mains 2016 Offline Student

Rank 425, Sharath Chandra:

Score Card before Joining our Offline Class

Score Card after Joining our Offline Class


And the BIG SURPRISE this year is that 30 SEATS in TLP (Offline) will be completely free for General Studies!

Others will be charged a very nominal fee.

We would have 20 classroom tests , 10 take home tests and 18 power packed classes.

These classes will be in transformational in nature.

For example : Our strategy for ethics would probably help you optimize the subject in mere 2 classes.

We expect that one who is well versed in basics to enroll with us. We will add the topping on the desert you would cherish to become.

Regarding OPTIONALS – We will provide Test Series for Geography and Anthropology Optional and Guidance for Public Administration, Sociology and Kannada Literature

We understand it is that time of the year when the heat is unbearable. But look at the irony of UPSC; even in this scorching heat, you are supposed to heat up even further!

Gosh! Its tough, isn’t it?

But then, the reward is lucrative. Imagine yourself listening to the President of India in no other than the Rashtrapati Bhawan itself! Or think about the fun that you will have when going on Bharat Darshan! Also think about all the power that you will command by simply cracking one examination! Sounds exciting?

There are many articles, talks, blogs and videos on what it takes to crack the coveted Civil Services Examination (CSE). In all those narratives, you will find one common theme and that is determination. And that is true to a large extent. Imagine a mason having all the tools, materials and skills to build a house. But what if he doesn’t have the will or determination to work? What if he detests hard labour? Will the house ever get built? Of course not.

Somewhere, most of you suffer from the same syndrome. Many of the candidates fail to succeed only because they lack determination or they keep procrastinating. This approach only creates panic and depression when the time approaches fast. Moreover, opportunities are shrinking but competition is ever intensifying. You have to be on your toes and that’s the bare minimum.

IASbaba has always tried to keep you on your toes through its online and offline programs. The flagship TLP Online and Offline initiatives are hugely popular across our followers and this time also we are proud to announce the commencement of TLP Offline and Online for Civil Services Mains, 2017.

Come join us and create history!

Another surprise : IASbaba to open a library and study centre for more than 150 people.

And yes it is completely free for our students. 

Important Note: Details about ONLINE TLP MAINS 2017 will be announced in a day or two 

All the Best

  • I know that I know nothing.

    Please consider online students also who are only having your support.

    • Kindly read the last Note

      • Bean Babu

        Babaji I am ILP student and edge species in terms prelims cut off and qualifying for mains. Is there any offline test series only to come and give test in your classroom? My intention is to write test in real test environment if I manage to clear prelims this time. Pls suggest.

        • Bean

          Not an exclusive test series as such. We give emphasis to discussions also. Writing test only without developing perspective and right approach won’t suffice.

          • Bean Babu

            The intention of mains offline TLP I understood. But I am hanging between 98-104 marks (general category)in prelims from different key answers. I am in dilemma whether to join offline TLP before the prelims results are announced or I can manage with online TLP and ILP mains initiatives if I am lucky enough to clear prelims. I am first timer .

          • Bean

            If not so sure, you may continue with ILP and TLP Online. TLP Online update will come tomorrow

          • Bean Babu

            Thanks Babaji

      • Sachin Kumar

        please tell when ur programe for TLP Online coming.
        please give the date.

  • “Yoga_/_”

    Babaji for Geography optional test-series , you will provide separate registration link or same registration will be valid as you are asking about the optional also while registering? OTHER question which I have is suppose I will get enroll for this course and unfortunately I will not clear prelims (as I am on border , getting 108 to 113 marks) in that case I can continue the course or I have to leave it.

    • Same for even Geography. You can continue if wish to. You will clear but 🙂


    Hello sir,
    First of all thanx to you for ur continuous help and support to the students.
    What ,I want to ask is that, ILP-2018 Online is only for GS subjects as u have mentioned. But what about our optionals ? Please clarify us on dis…!! 🙂
    My optional is Sociology.
    Thanx in advance for your positive reply…!! 🙂

    • Kabira
      ILP is GS only. We do not have anything paid for Optional because there are many and quality support has to be sustainable which is not available as of now

  • Madhavi Yadav

    Baba ji., One query. will you give online test series too,for gs n geography? It will b very helpful:)

    • A-KSHAR

      wiconman se baat hui kya ..where he is

          • Madhavi Yadav

          • Piyush Bhardwaj

            Shankar IAS ki key se 70 marks aa rahe hai. Itni baar exam me border par reh chuka hu ki kabhi kabhi sochta hu ki army me hona chahiye tha, upsc ki preparation me galti kar di aakar.
            How u are going to do preparation for mains??? Abhi to me optional start karuga aaj se. Aur babaji ki monthly magazine.

          • Madhavi Yadav

          • Mission 2017

            Wts ur schedule fr mains…am nt gettng any idea…

          • Piyush Bhardwaj

            Haven’t made any schedule. Just have started reading world history for paper1 and trying to complete the syllabus of paper1 as much as I can before the start of TLP.
            For geography I m starting from geomorphology and climatology.

          • Mission 2017

            Ok…n gs ke liye kaunsa test series join kiye ho

          • Piyush Bhardwaj

            Koi bhi nhi. Mujhe mains ka overall syllabus bhi study karna hai isliye Bas TLP par answer writing practice karunga, baki mains test series k liye time nikal pana thoda muskil hai.
            Vision test series k questions mene dekhe nhi hai, isliye Usk baare me pata nhi mujhe.

          • Mission 2017

            Thikh hain..ty☺

          • Piyush Bhardwaj


          • Mission 2017

            Hws vision test series

    • A-KSHAR

      yaar i feeling ver low and its a lot of fear … kuchh samjha nahi aa raha hai .. i have done mechanical engineering .. left gate and college placement and direct came here .. after analysing 2015/ 2014 pre , mains .. questionpapers .. but now upsc playing a smart game .. now each and every stage its going to be a lot of uncertainity and unpredectability .. from last 2016 pre to mains 2016 i had to change my way of reading but its seems to be not enough .. ..

      • A-KSHAR

        please help me madhavi wheather should i quit for this exam or continue ..

        “”the questions were in tune with the recommendations of the Alagh Committee, which observed that “the standard of testing should be raised incrementally and the questions should be designed to test a broad spectrum of knowledge””” just 5 days ago the hindu … said this .. about recommendation….. this years mains also going to be very new and with alot of surprises ………… right now nothing comes in my mind …….. hey baba bacha le

        • Piyush Bhardwaj

          Bhai ye upsc hai isme ghusna easy hai Lekin yaha se nikalna bhut muskil. Ek baar aap aa gye iss field me to ya to aap rank lekar nikloge yaa phir apne sabhi attempt isi me laga doge. Isliye there always should be some back up plan for that.
          WO cricket wala advertisement to dekha hoga aapne ye mohh naa choote, u will always be tempted to give this exam either u are doing job or not.

      • Madhavi Yadav

        Yaar ..I can understand dear.. I too left my job for this exam 🙂
        sabki woi haal hai..no on knows upsc fully…yeh socho tumhe nai Pata..bt tumhre saath wale ko nai Pata..mains n prelims mei saare sincere candidates ke paas nearly same level of knowledge hota hai..it’s important how u. Keep urself calm n Jo ata hai Usse ache se karo..bcz if u r feeling heat person sitting next to u is also feeling the heat… 🙂
        Meine socha hai ki I will go through the summary of previous 2 year economic survey too.. baaki to current +static + test series..
        Be calm n Study

        • A-KSHAR

          but how to be a calm and composed ..while knowing ……. i am committed to give my 100 % but there are alot of uncertainity about the outcome ..

          • Madhavi Yadav

            Dekho..try to b logical most of the tym…thing that is uncertain..u cannot control it by being anxious or Kuch bi.. by being anxious u can only harm urself..bt being calm can make u winner in uncertainty.u need to develop it to make urself ahead 🙂 100 prcnt calm is difficult..we all are humans..bt 80-90 prcnt try kar sakte hai
            Don’t think about outcome..bcz u can’t control it..just do wat is in ur hand I.e hard work n a strategy which has higher chances of success..n thn stick to it..forget results n all..just do ur work 🙂

            In case u still don’t feel calm..u can go meditation..there is nothing to feel shy in it..if something helps us we should try 🙂

          • A-KSHAR

            thankyou madhvi ………

        • A-KSHAR

          yaar tum current kitana prepare karogi .. from 2017 january or before that

          • Madhavi Yadav

            Mein Sept 2016 se..exam se always ek saal pehle 🙂

          • A-KSHAR

            yaar yesterday .. i make list of science / tech question .. more than 80 questions there .. but there will come only 3 …

          • Madhavi Yadav

            Yaar…to prep to karni hai na…u never know woh 3 kaunsi honge.u don’t have to leave loopholes….n everyone has different strategy..just b confident n do wat u feel is right 🙂

  • DuckDuck

    @iasbaba:disqus : Please provide for Anthropology test series in online format as well. It would be difficult for us to now relocate to Bengaluru before Mains.

  • Karthik Naidu

    @[email protected]:disqus First, I would like to thank you for all your initiatives and continuous efforts
    I have been regular (silent) follower from past 1 year+, especially TLP and daily news articles.. In fact that helped to score well in my previous mains but could not qualify.. I was afraid to post my answers and was irregular sometimes (procrastinating)..
    This year again I might be writing Mains (getting around 112) and this offline initiative should help
    Thanks a lot sir
    Please let me know if there is any paid Online Mains test series programme

    • Kanchanasharma

      Vision and Aikyatha are available online..

      • Karthik Naidu

        I had taken optional test series in Vision. Their quality has reduced badly (for Sociology) *my personal opinion
        They promised they will clear doubts and provide guidance regularly, but very poor response.
        Who is this Aikyatha? Never heard of them.

        • Kanchanasharma
          • Karthik Naidu

            Thank you, seems interesting.. But cost is very high for each modules.. How is the quality of essay test series?
            Will they give sample synopsis or answers or they discuss through telephonic conversation?

          • meenameen

            Please give me more details. If its online, can you provide a link

    • Super Commando Dhruv

      You will have good class room environment, friendly faculty members, and good friends. Regarding questions, many questions may get repeated but you cannot compare writing answers on paper with reading others answers online and feel in heart “oh Main bhi to yahi likhta”. Only solution is (if you do not want to shift) religiously write online answers without reading others answers and than compare with the best.
      All the best

      • rajini rathod

        Hi Dhruv,
        my doubt is are we asked to write answers daily(as per TLP online or given some questions andcan get evaluated ) OR just we have to write TESTS on specified dates as per schedule..
        Thanks in anticipation

  • krish
