UPSC Civil Services


Bhagirath IAS Academy is one of the reputed coaching classes for UPSC Civil Services in Pune and Maharashtra. Our aim is to build full infrastructure and most of the suprastructure of IAS preparation for only a few deserving students.

In view of this, the Bhagirath Academy has fundamentally focussed on hardcore classroom basic coaching, gradual building of clarity of current affairs, practice of objective and subjective question papers, in addition to the overall personality development of the students.

  1. Our philosophy of the UPSC coaching is step by step unfolding of the syllabus instead of many things attempted at one and the same time.
  2. We believe that the basic understanding of the various subjects is a sine qua non for the students to be able to stand the huge competition.
  3. Hence, we try to development the inate strengths of the students instead of just spoon-feeding.
