Hello Friends,

When we started our journey in June 2015, we wanted to transform the way people approached the preparation for civil services. We started with a determination that would enable a person sitting in the remotest corner of the country to have a crack at rank 1 in the civi services examination. For the past 5 years, we have broken many barriers that used to stifle to dreams of thousands of students.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has made physical accessibility a lot more difficult. With social distancing norm in place, it is difficult to imagine that normalcy would be back soon. Under the current circumstances, students are finding it hard to access quality classroom programmes. 

This is where we come in. In our approach to civil services preparation, three elements have always been fundamental- accessibility, affordability and adaptability. The tenacity to adapt to testing circumstances has made us innovate in a manner that would ensure access to quality classroom programmes in the most affordable way possible. We have taken recourse to technology to address the challenge that COVID-19 has brought. 

With great pleasure and pride, we introduce to you- IASbaba’s e-Classroom Learning Programme (e-CLP). You aren’t required to go to the classroom anymore. The classroom will come to you. At the comfort of your home, you can access high quality lectures delivered by the expert faculty of IASbaba. The overall structure and details of the programme are mentioned in the subsequent paragraphs.

Before we discuss the details of the program, let us ask you one question. What do you think is a good recipe of success?

To be honest, there isn’t a single path that can take you to your goal. But, surely there are some ingredients that should be there if you want to become successful. Some of these are as follows –

Truthfulness – You need to be honest with yourself. This is the most basic mantra. You can hide from the world, you can fake your hardwork or progress, but only you will truly know what are your weaknesses and where you have to improve. Once you keep this in mind, you’ll always move forward.

Keep yourself motivated – There is a lot of negativity around in the world, you might check social media and you’ll find your friends enjoying their parties and vacations while you have to sit and slog. There may be some pseudo-friends who’ll keep discouraging you, asking you to quit and go for some easier option. But as a wise man said, whenever you think of quitting, remember why you started.

Smart work – In current scenario, you cannot differentiate yourself from others just by doing hard work. You can’t even complain that you did so much of hard work and didn’t get the desired result because every second aspirant is putting that much of hard work. Where you have to edge past the other is the smart work. Work so that you improve yourself every single day.

If you think that you can promise us these three ingredients, then we have the right support for you.

To take you closer to success we have designed an approach, we call it-

The most important aspect of the program is the Hybrid Model we have adopted for delivering our content and communication. It refers to the setup where pre-recorded classes along with a live-streaming facility of Doubt Clearing Sessions will be made available.

Need of Hybrid Model :

Due to frequent Internet connectivity issues being faced across the country, it will upset the schedule and quality streaming of classes which has been experienced with many institutes across the country other than UPSC coaching also. 

From our experience and feedback from our students, we found that quality of Live Streaming is not as good as the recorded videos.

Time management plays an important role in one’s preparation. Keeping this in mind, we have designed the course such that, focus on lectures are on delivering quality content in a stipulated time and this is followed by Live Doubt clearance session.

Every student will have a personalised dashboard, a separate ‘e-learning portal’ wherein you can access the recorded videos, live discussion sessions, value add notes, daily tests(Prelims, Mains) for self-assessment and fortnightly full-length Prelims and Mains Tests, give feedback on the classes etc. all at one place!

e-CLP Program is the Most Comprehensive CLASSROOM Integrated Program covering Prelims, Mains, Interview.

It is a complete solution for UPSC Preparation. It covers –

  • Classes – All GS Papers (GS1, GS2, GS3, GS4 (Ethics)), Essay, CSAT and Current Affairs.
  • Tests -Prelims & Mains Tests, Mains Tests Evaluation, Synopsis/Model Answers.
  • Mentorship.
  • Interview Guidance & Mock Interviews.

Even though it is an online course, daily targets and plans are given to maintain accountability and discipline. This way work will not pile up and students will be able to maintain their pace uniformly. Sitting at home you will be able to streamline your preparation. 


Total No. of Classes230 (All GS Papers- 1, 2, 3, 4 (Ethics) and Essay + CSAT + Current Affairs)

Total No. of Hours  = 700 hours

No. of Prelims Test = 46 Full-length Prelims Test (17 Macro Prelims Test + 8 Subject-wise Tests + 6 Revision Tests + 5 Mock Tests + 10 CSAT Tests) + 160 Daily Micro Tests (Including Current Affairs)

No. of Mains Test = 17 Full length Mains Test + 10 Essay Tests (27 Mains Tests) + 165 Daily Mains Answer Writing Practice (Including Current Affairs).


Well before Prelims all the topics of prelims and mains will be taught so that there is enough time for revision and practice. All Classes (inclusive of CSAT) will get over by the month of April. Month of May and June will be dedicated for Revision and Mock tests

While teaching we always keep in mind that building the basics in every subject is very important. We assume that students are starting with 0% Knowledge and we teach them from the basics to the standards expected from UPSC.

Every subject is preceded by a Strategy or an Approach class where sessions will be in sync with UPSC trend with previous year’s questions analysis and discussing the topics where probability of asking the question is more.

The UPSC trend analysis and the approach classes will give you clarity on what to read, what not to read and how to read. This will help you in building a strong foundation is your preparation.

Major portion of the class will be focused on conceptual understanding and analysing an issue from 360 degree. Interlinking all GS papers and static portions with current affairs forms the core of program (e-CLP).

It is also a major problem faced by all the students that what and how many sources are to be covered. With our value add notes (VAN), you will be able to declutter the complexity of UPSC syllabus. The VANs are high-quality specialised reading materials to give you an edge over your competitors. VANs have been designed intelligently to give separate prelims and mains focus pointers to make your understanding seamless and smooth. The notes will be given topic wise for all the topics in syllabus (Prelims and Mains) to ease your preparation. 

Studying all day long won’t make any sense if you are not practicing the questions. Hence after every class we keep a test so that immediately it is understood whether a student is able to apply the knowledge or not. Hence testing your abilities daily will not only keep you disciplined but will enhance your learning and make you accountable

No. of Prelims Test = 46 Full-length Prelims Test (17 Macro Prelims Test + 8 Subject-wise Tests + 6 Revision Tests + 5 Mock Tests + 10 CSAT Tests) + 160 Daily Micro Tests (Including Current Affairs)

No. of Mains Test = 17 Full length Mains Test + 10 Essay Tests (27 Mains Tests) + 165 Daily Mains Answer Writing Practice (Including Current Affairs).

Please Note that, Fortnightly Mains Tests Evaluation will be done along with

Special sessions will be taken by the toppers and experts to improve your personality. Many times it is seen that during a long process of preparation, students find themselves lost and their motivation drops. These special sessions will keep you motivated and give you confidence to become a better person. 

Experts will be invited from different fields like Civil servants, Yoga Teachers, Motivators etc. 

You must have observed that in many famous institutes, teachers teach like a Godly personality and are totally unapproachable. We don’t believe in creating those barriers. Teachers will be approachable through live sessions where students will be able to ask subject specific queries. 

Hand holding till the end – Once enrolled in the program, we provide mentorship and support till the interview. Every student will be provided a Dedicated Mentor, who will monitor your progress, give you feedback, motivate and guide you in the Right Path! The students can contact his/her mentor for any difficulties regarding preparation. This will keep an external check and will help in maintaining accountability throughout the preparation process.

Apart from this, we at IASbaba have gone one notch higher and we are providing subject-wise mentorship in e-CLP.

Understanding of Current Affairs is very important in the present scenario.

Guidelines will be provided to you on how to write an essay. 10 Essay Tests will be conducted and evaluated along with practice Essay topics at regular intervals. UPSC asks for two types of topics – a static/ factual topic and a philosophical topic. Approach for both is different and will be provided to you as part of the Program.

Keeping Covid situation in mind we have decided that there will be no differentiation done between online and Offline Classes, once the conditions are conducive, offline programs will be started without any change in the fee structure. Students will be able to shift from online mode to offline mode without a change in schedule. 

However, we feel HEALTH should be the top most priority now. So we would advice you to take the ONLINE CLASSROOM PROGRAM (e-CLP 2021) and start your preparation. We will make sure you get the best materials, guidance, tests and classes at your doorsteps.

By the end of the program we expect that the students will have good conceptual clarity in all the GS Subjects. Also, they will have a good understanding of the overall exam. This will help them score much better and feel a lot more confident


Considering the present situation, the comprehensive features, support, quality and duration of the program, we have kept price to the bare minimum.

Also flexibility to switch from Online to Offline is provided without any extra fee and instalment option is provided so that the program/course is affordable.
