Civil-service coaching

Hyderabad has various advantages as a hub of Civil Service coaching — geographically it is located in the centre of South India.

“The environment is safer here compared with other parts of the country. The Telugu States are hubs of education in general,” Krishna Pradeep, Founder-Chairman, 21st Century IAS Group of Institutions, told BusinessLine.

As Civil Service exams are based on domain knowledge, the people here are more inclined to appear for them. The coaching fee structure is relatively lower in Hyderabad, compared with Delhi.

Optional subject faculty are considered to be the best, particularly for subjects such as history, public administration , sociology, political science and anthropology. Regular preparation for the State services such as Group 1 and 2 is also enabling the aspirants to try their hand at Civil Services.

More BTech students in the Telugu States are inclined to attempt Civil Services exams because of the compatibility of CSAT exams with their domain knowledge, Pradeep said.
