  • Champion

    @iasbaba:disqus It would be really beneficial for all if you could, kindly, in future also add on the date than merely mentioning Day 1, Day 2 and so on

    • What to do with date here?

      • Champion

        Some of us like me tend to remember things by date than specific schedule by others; date being more standard format. Nevertheless, would not like to trouble you again for it might be too troublesome. Take your care. Thank you for helping us all.

  • Gcras Ias

    Babaji give suggestions and feedbacks for improvement, there is nothing wrong in motivating those who write answer very well but the answer which is not up to marks need you suggestions the most for improvement.

    • Gcras

      Dear we are trying our best and looking to strengthen our base to be more focused for all. Try to understand our constraints as well. You should realize that we are working round the clock…and also, we are trying hard to provide best for you all. IN few days, review system will improve. Be patient 🙂 Hope you support us

  • Never Zombie..we understand your concerns…and surely we will try our best…But it is a major reason that many aspirants wait for end time and do not work hard for the moment itself. This is why we wrote like that. You shouldn’t wait till the end, this makes you incompetent. Rather work today and if in future anything will come, it will add to your good only 🙂

  • Daal Baati Chorma aka DBC

    @iasbaba:disqus Back Log kar di hai maine finshhhh….Daily answer writing is now what I wishhhh.
    Ab se 5 botal vodka errrrr 5 prashn baba ka…Kaam mera roj ka.

  • Gandhi

    Baba ji…one request….
    For all these GS questions, Would you please also provide the link for references related to the questions any articles..or any supporting documents……it will help to have a better understanding of question


    • Harshit Ladva

      To limit within the references is not a good idea. Actually the questions are so dynamic and open-ended that you just need to express what you think.. and that is tough in 250 words ! Start answers.. ur knowledge base will increase and thus answer will get multi-faceted with time

  • idiot bandar

    @iasbaba:disqus will you provide the compilation of the TLP or i should start copying the answer in ms-word. Because i m feeling that just by going through the answer i can learn alot. compilation from your side will be very helpful for students like me who is preparing for 2016.

    thank you

    • DO it on your side…if we come up with it..Good for all….otherwise no harm for you 🙂

    • markande katju

      FRIENDS those who want to join the insight test series and share the cost in group please mail at [email protected].
      i am creating a group of likeminded people to share the cost as every one is not able to pay 6000 cost due to various scio-economic- political reasons.

      As our constituion promote equal opportunity to every human being.

      please reply or mail me for sharing economically

  • DSR

    around what time should the answers be posted in order to get them reviewed?

    • NOTHING like that..we review as per our convenience…since we also have to work round the clock for other contents…keep writing…we are trying to resolve the review system very soon..just few more day…will appreciate your support 🙂

      P.S for this concern, we will review your answer on priority for today’s question 🙂

      • DSR

        don’t get me wrong babaji…..i know u guys are working round the clock. i think it was a stupid question to ask. sorry babaji

        • Never…why should we take it wrong 🙂 You guys are our strength…so are your worries…we appreciate and consider it and work to make it better…

          • DSR

            thanks a lot sir!! Keep up the good work 🙂

          • champa rajendran

          • What about 300 ? 😀 😀 Movie…:P

  • Avi

    Pls start TLP for psychology. Thanks n keep up the good work.

  • lord

    Baba ji ek do question ka level thoda easy rakho, so that first timers also get some courage to post.Slowly we can join the elites.

    • If first timers are prep for 2016, then they should wait for their turn. We only have 100 Days for serious aspirants. And if first timers are appearing for 2015, then by now they should attempt it 🙂 No offense, but we are doing as per the requirement and time constraints…for 2016 we will do as per them, and veterans will be offended then 🙂

      P.S- We will try to give some easy questions here and there if schedule allows

  • Purnendu Shekhar

    IASbaba, I am preparing for CSE 2016.Your site is very useful.

  • lord

    Can we quote bhagvad gita quotes in ethics paper? If yes in Devanagri or Roman?

  • Narayan

    Baba Ji, thanks for your great selfless initiative. It’s very helpful specially for working aspirants like me. I have been following most of the answers written by our friends. Though I manage to write some answers but could never upload because of time constraint.
    But personally I have observed most of the answers contain lots of detailed facts like date, data, committee, places, acts etc which are readily available in the internet. Is it possible/feasible to present all these in the actual Mains exam? At least for me, can’t even dare to think. Please suggest how important to present all related facts, data or any act.

    • If you can produce some facts, its good but there is no harm if you couldn’t 🙂

      But certain questions require some facts to support your answer so you should prepare them accordingly

  • Fluid

    babaji, I am in a dilemma.Your TLP questions are really great and honestly speaking the way you frame questions, for novice writers (atleast like me), it’s easy said than done to wind up the whole thing in three hours.To write an answer, I need to search the topics, read from multiple sources, and do a lot of brain storming to frame an average answer and it easily consumes around one hour.So five questions and five hours plus it’s not at all useful if I don’t go through others answers for reading others answers allow me to evaluate me and learn. So you can say its easy seven hours gone.Now atleast four hours for optional. Two hours for newspaper, then your current affairs.So I write few answers and sometimes I write in my notebook so can’t upload and some times simply avoid.

    The day gets exhausted.No revision and self study.I have joined a test series also and every sunday tests are conducted.But I prefer this platform because I trust you more than those money making machines, so I am not able to prepare for them also.
    Babaji I know it’s a very silly question, and it’s not expected from me but I started my preparations very late and probably I will not be able to clear prelims this time, not because I didn’t study well but a bit of bad luck, silly mistakes and a lack of revision of some parts. But, i really want to utilise this TLP 2015 because ultimately it will help me in future.

    So please babaji tell me what to do.It sometimes throws me out of the track..
    With efforts and courage, a bit of direction is needed and I guess I am lacking that, probably that’s the reason I did miserably in prelims too. Please babaji throw some light.

  • Hope

    I am a working Professional and Usually I got 5-6 Hour Per Day for Study. Out of these I consumed my 2-3 Hours in The Hindu Editorial (Reading & Note Making). Sometimes I also Read Indian Express. And I consumed Whole day in Just Editorials.

    My question is From a Editorial maximum we can remember 3-4 points. So what is the need of reading them? These point we can easily Collect from Various Sources like Daily News Analysis + Civilsdaily Notes of Daily News with Monthly Vision IAS Current Affais Module Will not be enough?

    I am very new to this so any experience Person pls help me. Because I don’t want to regret on my decision later weather it is reading The Hindu or Solely Dependent on + Vision IAS Current Affairs Module.

    Please Reply Baba asap. Although I asked this question on 2-3 Places but I am solely Rely on you and your plan for 2016.

    • Hi Hope

      If you wait for few more days (till we come up with 2016 Plan), you will be in better position to understand it.

      • Hope

        Thank You Baba..I am 100% Dependent on you. Even I don’t open other websites. I am hoping for the best.. 🙂

        • We will never restrict you from not opening other websites. If anything benefits you, what else we want 🙂

          But yes, if we are able to solve all your worries then why to roam around 😛 Wait for the best to happen….Thank You for the support

        • Ritesh Maheshwari

          Never depend on others. Only you can do justice to your life. One of my school teacher used to say ki “khud ke mare hi swarg milta hai”. It means that you will not achieve anything meaningful in life without doing the necessary hard work. My advice is that do not waste time. Try to use it judiciously and I don’t see any reason why you can’t achieve your dream.

      • Akash

        waiting for 2016 plan

    • Anit ifs

      I’m not an expert or anything. but to use your time in the best manner… rise up early, if you can.. by 4.. then by your office time, you can put in more work than most full time preparatory do.. Then in the evenings go through the editorials.. it may be hectic, but it would work

  • Basant Yadav

    Jai ho baba ji………:)

  • Radhakrishna

    please increase the number of daily questions. at least 10?
    quality drops with quantity??
    precision with time limit? a bit concerned about it!!
    it is only a suggestion. i don’t know about the motive, revision ya practice ya quality improvement.
    a fine balance of time and quality is necessary.
    i have no intentions of being rude. please reply.

    • We cannot since our intention in the beginning was clear. We feel you joined late!

      We only work for quality learning and with practical limits considering the output of the same….also, we try to review the answers and if we increase the number of questions, then it will become a redundant exercise for everyone….Its not about number of questions but learning.

      In our questions, the dimensions to explore are more and it is suggested to work on thought process and originality rather than mugging the things. We are going with a proper Plan…so cannot modify it at this stage. Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

      • Chasing Tom

        Babaji we are following you like your disciple……….you had given us your finger to hold………..

        In this world of extreme darkness……… are enlightening our path

        We are not going to sit on your shoulder as burden for you………….you just maintain your pace and follow your strategy for your disciples……..

        You are torchbearer for most of us and we are not some body to point finger on your way of imparting knowledge………………

        It will be a great achievement for us, if we can just following path to success, which you prepared for us

        Babaji ki Jai

        • Tom

          Thank You for the support 🙂

          • Chasing Tom

            Baba I am embarrassed by your thanks…………………it is against guru-sishya parampara

            We, people, should thank you for your tireless efforts and helping hands being extended towards us.

            I always overwhelmed with your reply to me.

            Babaji……..If you are reading this……….then please enlighten me, how to start and excel in answer writing because you always urge for writing for scoring good rank……..

            Your Sectary

          • No its not. We are on the same panel of knowledge and learning. Only thing that differentiates us is TIME. 🙂

            Writing practice: Its an inclusive exercise. The more you learn (not mug), the more you think, the more you think, the more you get contextualized, the more you get contextualized, the more you get better in thoughts, the more you get better in thoughts, the more you get better in presenting it! – And writing is nothing more than the end result of the above statement 🙂

      • Radhakrishna

        yes, the questions does have quality and forces you to think. even answers by people show the level of dynamism in thought process. that is why greed came….aur jyada!! your questions have been helpful, thank you.

        • It will be done for sure but gradually 🙂 Thank You for the support

          • champa rajendran

  • Mani

    has anyone filled the DAF or started working on it?

    • Anwar

      yes I have filled it

      • i logged in today and started to fill

      • Mani

        how did u get the hard copy of the form?

        the one which we have to send offline

        • Anwar

          You have to take print out after final submission….

          • Mani

            actually i have not submitted it yet

            so will it possible if I fill and submit the form online and log out and then log in again at cyber cafe for hard copy print out?

            i mean, will the form open or I have to do that simultaneously. i.e. submitting the form and then taking print out at one go?

          • Anwar

            You log in and fill the form and simultaneously save every tab but before final submission click on print preview and take print out, check it and make corrections, if required. Now you can finally submit and take print out. You can log out in between at any time and saved data will remain there……..

          • Amruth Kumar

            Do you know what we have to fill in the grade Column in education section ?

          • Anwar

            It’s optional, you have to fill grade or division+%

          • Amruth Kumar

            I filled considering 60 + % as 1 St class 50-60 2nd this logic some of my friends also did the same. I didn’t put grade ( A,B,C,D) as CGPA was already there. I sent it already. Hope its won’t create any problem

          • Mani

            you are correct.

            i also filled this way.

          • Anwar

            It’s optional, you have to fill grade or division+%…..

  • sbt57

    Can we have these daily TLP links in descending order.We won’t have to scroll down every time we open this page.It will improve site’s user friendliness a bit.

  • Amruth Kumar

    Hey anyone there? Do we have to show the certificates for everything we write in Employment Information section in DAF during interview? like prizes, positions of responsibility, team games etc. will mail from concerned person suffice for some cases?.

    • Mani

      i think we just have to provide certificates of age proof (10th class marksheet) and our educational qualifications: i.e. graduation degree and post graduation degree (if any)

      we dont have to submit certificates like for debate wining competition, essay writing etc.
      they are not required (i think)

      refer to the instructions provided (22 page document)

      if u find anything do tell me too 😛

      • Amruth Kumar

        Thanks, I went through it and no where I read we have to submit certificates, but one of my friend told me we have to, so just wanted to confirm. According to blogs and all we don’t have to submit.

        • dark matter

          theyll chek ur educ certificates only….u need not submit any proofs for ec activities

          • Amruth Kumar

            Thank you. 🙂

          • vidhu

            So what is the net result of this discussion? We have to send 10 12 graduation copy along with daf?

          • Amruth Kumar

            Yup, that is clear, I was asking during interview do they ask for extra curricular certificates, so I can avoid them writing in DAF.

          • Amruth Kumar

            got it. peace 🙂

          • Mani

            we dont have to send 12th marksheet 🙂

  • Khwabeeda

  • Cadet1970

    Babaji ki Jai Ho…Jai ho Babaji ki! You must have heard it a thousand times by now, however, at the cost of being repetitive, allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude for the excellent TLP series and HOT. The services provided by your website are truly radical and have the potential to change the face of UPSC coaching.

    Imagine the plight of an aspirant from the rural/poor urban setting who can’t go to the conventional coaching institutes due to the exorbitant fees and what role you have played in his/her life. Per se, I’m not anti-coaching institutes only if they stop using the aspirations of a UPSC candidate as a money-making venture. How can a poor person (or for that matter even a middle-class person) who is serious about his goal afford a coaching worth ~1.25 lakh rupees? With the advent of technology and sites like yours, Unacademy, Mrunal and Insights, all that a serious candidate needs is a good Internet connection and a can-do attitude.

    Kudos to you for all the great work and wishing every one who benefited from your (and the amazing peers) guidance to do extremely well in the exams. Remember, all of us have the duty to give it our best and when we find success, let’s not forget to highlight the role played by the availability of guidance over the Internet and how aspirants can make use of available resources without worrying about spending lakhs of rupees.

    Good luck! So long and thanks for all the fish…

    • Hi Vidyarthi
