‘Dilli Chalo’ – The Battle of IAS Coaching in Delhi

Battle of IAS Coaching in Delhi

Vajiram and Ravi’s vs Rau’s IAS vs ALS

Delhi is home to all the UPSC aspirants who want some ‘serious’ coaching. The city of dreams, as some call it, is responsible for more selections in UPSC than any other coaching hub. Even if you are studying somewhere else, you’ll get a thought about going to Delhi throughout your preparation. Call it an effect of Group Mentality or a result-oriented approach, Delhi is a dream for UPSC aspirants. A horde of millions of students can be passing the streets in front of the most premier coaching institutes in India. Among a cluster of institutes that provide IAS Coaching in Delhi, three names stand above the rest. Vajiram and Ravi’s, Rau’s IAS, and ALS are the most famous institutes among UPSC aspirants. We’ve compared the essential features of these three most popular IAS coaching institutes in Delhi. But before you start to pack your bags to move to Delhi, read this article to know what is best for you. 

Infrastructure

The infrastructure of Vajiram and Ravi’s is as big as their name. The institute has its building which houses their classrooms, an auditorium, and a huge reception area. The reception area and accounts section cover a more significant part of the ground floor to handle massive crowds of students. Vajiram and Ravi’s have seen an inclined growth in the number of students that join them. They can accommodate this vast crowd with equally large classrooms. But bigger space means lesser interaction with the teacher. There are screens everywhere in classes. So, the students don’t miss what’s being taught. However, only the students sitting in the front rows can interact with the teachers. Therefore, they lose some points in our rating. Additionally, the institute doesn’t provide residential facilities. 

Rau’s IAS is situated in Cannaught Place. It is a central hub of activities in Delhi. The institute is a part of commercial space. However, there is no lack of facilities. The classrooms are spacious, but still good enough to allow students to interact with the teacher. The batch size in Rau’s IAS is not as big as Vajiram and Ravi’s. This makes it easier for students to study and understand. But there is no hostel facility available. Therefore, you’ll have to find a place on your own. 

ALS has the best infrastructure among these three. The architecture of the building is well suited for educational activities. The classrooms are spacious and well lit. Like Vajiram and Ravi’s, the batch size is big, but the interaction with the faculty is possible. The classes are not like an auditorium. You won’t need screens to watch your teacher. However, there is no hostel facility. So, overall, these institutes offer the same atmosphere but Vajiram and Ravi lack in student-teacher interaction. Moreover, none of these institutes offers a library which is a must in UPSC preparation. 

Verdict:

  • Vajiram and Ravi’s: 8/10
  • Rau’s IAS: 8.5/10
  • ALS: 9/10

Faculty:

Each one of these institutes offers top-grade teachers. Rau’s is one of the oldest UPSC coaching institutes in India. Therefore, they have the upper hand over others. Vajiram and Ravi’s, on the other hand, has been consistent with the results in recent years.

Additionally, ALS has been evolving the UPSC coaching with their unique teaching methods. Despite being the newest in the business, ALS has made a name by displaying good results. Especially because Rau’s IAS has lost its charm and Vajiram & Ravi’s is not able to provide the highest level quality with an increasing number of students. But that doesn’t mean the faculty in Rau’s and Vajiram is inferior to ALS. They still have the benefit of experience. In the long run, the experience is always preferred over modernity. However, it depends on your personal preference. You can decide only after attending some demo classes or watching YouTube videos of the faculty members of every institute. We will rate the faculty of these institute based on recent results.

Verdict:

  • Vajiram and Ravi’s: 9/10
  • Rau’s IAS: 8.5/10
  • ALS: 8/10

Value for Money

Recent results have shown that Vajiram and Ravi’s IAS is the most successful IAS Coaching in India. No doubt, everyone wants to join them. There course structure and the faculty is also promising and can be a considered a good value for money. Rau’s IAS, on the other hand, is more inclined to the traditional teaching approach. This teaching methodology has given good results in the past. However, in recent years, their results have been on a decline. This will surely change, though because, in the end, it depends on the efforts made by the students. ALS is relatively new and needs to prove its worth. The facilities they provide are top-notch, but they need to produce some top-ranking results to claim good value for money. 

Verdict:

  • Vajiram and Ravi’s: 10/10
  • Rau’s IAS: 8/10
  • ALS: 7/10
