Uniqueness of the Eklavya Program

ForumIAS has been unique in its approach towards Civil Services Exam & this is also reflected in its Eklavya Program as:
A dedicated Mentor to guide the candidate during their preparation journey.
The Mentor will give a realistic time-table for completion of different subjects for both Prelims & Mains.
Benchmark Tests every 12-14 days with Assessment & Mentor feedback.
Complete access of Prelims Tests Series & 500+ Ques & Ans from MGP.
