Chanakya IAS Academy has been offering educational services to the students preparing for the civil services exam for the last 16 years. The Academy imparts comprehensive training-cum-guidance program which cover all the stages of civil services exam – Preliminary Exam (the objective type screening test); Main exam (the descriptive type written test) and Interview. The Academy was established with the aim to provide a complete solution to the students preparing for this exam. The focus is on providing holistic education not only covering the prescribed syllabus but also enabling the students to face other challenges of life with an equal ease.
The results of the past 6 years stand a testimony to Chanakya's glorious performance in guiding students in the civil services exam. As is apparent from the graph, in 2001, 94 of Chanakya's students were selected. In 2002, the number of selections went up to 103. The graph has been heading only upwards with 113 selections in 2003, 125 in 2004, 131 in 2005, 135 in 2006, and 137 in 2007. Not only this, hundreds of Chanakya's students have successfully entered various state/provincial civil services with the help of the training-cum-guidance program at the Academy. (It is worth-mentioning that the syllabi prescribed by most of the state civil services commissions are in sync with the syllabus for the central civil services exam). Many of the candidates who have joined the state civil services have an opportunity to get promoted to the elite services like – IAS & IPS.
The Academy imparts its class-room training through four of its study centres – two in Delhi and one each in Ahmedabad and Ranchi. The air-conditioned class-rooms, library-cum-reading room, cultural & co-curricular activities, study tours, in-house magazine and other such facilities offered by the Academy make it an institution in the true sense of the word.
In addition to imparting knowledge of the concerned subjects, Chanakya IAS Academy lays great emphasis on leadership development, ethics and social responsibility, and mind-power development so as to ensure that our tomorrow's bureaucrats do not suffer from moral and ethical bankruptcy. Therefore, built in the curriculum is the program with a Midas touch – A. K. Mishra's Art of Success. As a result, every student learns to not merely tread on the beaten path but to reinvent themselves and explore newer routes; not to attain the fixed targets merely, but to set newer ones.
