Why most IAS aspirants from WEST BENGAL come for IAS Coaching in Kolkata?

Kolkata has been the birthplace of great scholars since ancient to the present times. Some of them are- physicists Satyendra Nath Bose, Meghnad Saha, and Jagadish Chandra Bose; chemist Prafulla Chandra Roy; statisticians Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis and Anil Kumar Gain; physician Upendranath Brahmachari; educator Ashutosh Mukherjee; and Nobel laureates Rabindranath Tagore, C. V. Raman, and Amartya Sen. It becomes the duty of every resident of Kolkata and West Bengal to carry forward this legacy. Situated on the east bank of Hooghly River, Kolkata is the cultural capital of India. It's the oldest commercial and military port of India. It was the center of revolutionary activities and freedom struggle at the time of British rule in India. That is why patriotism and love for the nation are innate in the people of Bengal. And therefore, people here have a natural tendency of joining Civil Services and to serve the country.

Chahal Academy, Kolkata believes we must encourage, enable and empower the students to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to fulfill the dream of becoming IAS/IPS officers. Apart from ensuring that their base is strong, we also polish and re-polish every other aspect of the UPSC preparation regularly to keep our students updated.

How to choose UPSC/IAS coaching institute in Kolkata?

Since we have understood the importance of joining IAS coaching institute through our FAQ section, the next dilemma is how to choose a right UPSC coaching center in Kolkata as every IAS coaching institute claims itself to best.

There is no correct answer to this question, but a candidate should keep the following factors in mind before joining civil services exam coaching institute-

Batch size- Institute with a limited number of students per batch will help in better learning. Many institutes in Kolkata have a batch size of 80-100+ where it is very difficult to understand what is being taught.

Talk to Alumni- One of the best ways to judge is to try to talk to past students at the institute and get to know about their experience.

Check Reviews- Deeply analyzing the reviews on google and social media can give you some idea about the IAS coaching institutes in Kolkata.

Past Results- Try to verify whether results being shown by the UPSC coaching center in Kolkata are genuine or not. You can check through their YouTube channel also.

Fee- Fee for IAS Coaching institute in Kolkata is usually very high. But many good affordable options are available these days. It makes no sense to pay a very high fee when one can find a good coaching institute at an affordable price and thus avoid paying a very high fee for Civil Services Exam coaching in Kolkata.

Faculty- One should check whether faculty teaching at IAS/IPS coaching institute in Kolkata has a deep orientation to civil services examination background or not apart from having good experience. It should be checked whether faculty members are coming from Delhi in reality or not.

Study Material- Many UPSC coaching centers in Kolkata give their own study material and avoid important reference books and NCERTS. Once Students join a coaching center, they realize later that they need to purchase reference books and NCERT books by themselves. One should verify that recommended reference books as well as NCERT Books are being given in hard copy or not. 

Test Series- Your success in civil services examination also depends upon the timely self-analysis and progress you are making through the evaluation of test series being provided to you. One should ascertain whether the test series provided by IAS Coaching centers in Kolkata covers standard reference books, relevant current affairs and is aligned with the civil services examination pattern of not.
