Mitra Sir I came to you in the "trough" phase of my preparation and your guidance have helped me to reach its "crest" phase. Thank you Mitrapal Sir for being there as a friend, guide and philosopher. I would also like to thank Sanskriti Jain who suggested me to come to Mitra's IAS. Thank you Mitra Sir once again.

Mitra Sir has a very holistic and exam oriented approach toward teaching the subject. In addition to this the guidance he provided to me for the interview was of great help. I feel immensely grateful towards the institute. Since it was my first attempt, Mitrapal Sir always encouraged me that the exam can be cracked in the first attempt contrary to the popular myth that it can not be.

Mitra Sir's help and guidance has played an important role in securing a rank in my 1st attempt. Mitra Sir's in depth understanding of the subject and lucid way of explaining gave me the confidence I needed.


The conceptual clarity that was offered in Mitra Sir's classes, and the stress he lays on answer writing has truly helped me in my quest to understand philosophy.

Through Neostencil, I enrolled in the online batch for Philosophy by Mitra Pal Sir. The course and Sir's guidance was instrumental in success in UPSC 2017. And Neostencil was an important medium in this journey. It is revolutionary in providing remote access to the classes through good quality videos, correspondence between the students and teachers, and a good customer support system with quick response to queries and doubts. The Neostencil team is doing an excellent job. Thank you
