Our unique four-stage methodology helps ensure maximum retention and rock-solid preparation. Each component has been meticulously crafted which repeated every week creates a virtuous cycle.

Diversified and Comprehensive coverage

UPSC is a generalist exam. It’s important to cover more issues than to cover a few, in more depth. Samachar Manthan ensures that fine balance of comprehensive news coverage and detailed discussion on the most important topics.

Videos and Notes

Carefully selected relevant news is analyzed and delivered in a weekly lecture spanning over 3 hours.

You will be getting high quality, well-designed notes. They are detailed with proper categorization of news into the Mains and Prelims category.

Our focus is on conceptual clarity, simplicity, relevance and making interlinkages between current affairs and basic/static part of the syllabus.
