      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 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.
