[Reminder ] Scholarship Test for OGP 2024 (Offline & Online Guidance Program) –Batch 1 at Bengaluru & Delhi: a full-fledged integrated classroom training program for UPSC CSE – scheduled for tomorrow(20th Nov. 2022)






“I am an OGP 2021 student. Insights IAS & Vinay Sir played a significant role in my success. When I entered preparation I had no clue, but at Insights IAS- the institute gives you enough resources, if you use them wisely & strategically you can clear the exam. Vinay Sir’s guidance for the  Essay Paper, in which I scored good marks, was very good. His  interview guidance also helped me improve my communication skills.” Avinash (AIR-31 in UPSC CSE 2021, OGP 2021 student)


“I must place on record my most sincere gratitude to the entire InsightsIAS team, particularly Mr. Vinay Kumar who had been a true bedrock of support. He was extremely patient and would review my writing with feedback on improvements. Without his guidance, and others at InsightsIAS like Mr. Sudeep Kumar, I doubt I would have managed to clear the exam.”– Jeydev CS (AIR-5 2019, OGP Student)


Hello Dear Student!

Welcome to InsightsIAS- an institute that has become a pioneer in the realm of UPSC CSE Preparation with its path-breaking initiatives.  InsightsIAS was founded by Mr. Vinay Kumar GB with the noble intention of providing accessible, inclusive & quality guidance to every single aspirant. His motto is to mold students into well-rounded personalities, who will contribute to society and serve the nation. He has ensured that the institution is built on a strong foundation of values and oriented towards results.

Today, we present to you our most awaited offering for freshers & veterans alike – the OGP(Offline & Online Guidance Program) for those writing UPSC CSE 2024.

The Civil services examination is considered to be a tough nut to crack. Lakhs of candidates appear for the prelims exam, a few thousand (around 9-11k) write mains, and a few hundred clear the interview stage. But let’s not waste time thinking about our chances of clearing this coveted exam. Instead, let’s focus on HOW TO CLEAR each stage.

There is a common thread that binds most successful aspirants- SYSTEMATIC PRACTICE, the RIGHT GUIDANCE, and HARD WORK. Having guided several hundreds of toppers successfully for nearly a decade((Nandini KR AIR-1, Jeydev CS AIR-5, Avinash AIR-31: click on the names to read their reviews of InsightsIAS), we have understood the demands of this rigorous exam and devised several initiatives that will empower an aspirant to crack the exam easily, provided they put in the required efforts consistently.

To all those embarking on this journey for the very first time: the UPSC CSE is conducted in three phases – Preliminary, Mains, and Interview. Each stage differs in the approach needed to tackle it successfully. This exam requires the right strategy to clear it at the earliest; It is not merely about your brilliance or memory power. We have seen many talented individuals- fritter away their attempts due to a lack of the right guidance and strategy. The huge competition coupled with the vastness of the syllabus, makes it challenging for an aspirant (especially a fresher) to adopt the right strategy for the exam.



Abraham Lincoln  said, “If I had five minutes to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first three sharpening my axe.”

Undoubtedly, every serious aspirant spends a lot of time studying but often fails to find a program that aids in sharpening their preparation (AXE) that has the potential to give them commensurate returns. The OGP 2024 will help you sharpen your axe to achieve your goal at the earliest.

To fulfill your goal of clearing the exam, we have designed a Holistic and Intensive Classroom program. It is a full-fledged program for UPSC CSE (Prelims + Mains + Interview) which keeps you occupied for 12-15 months.

Our entire strategy for the classroom program is driven by the unique EQUIP strategy.

E – Explanation of Basic Concepts by faculties

Q – Quest: A mini test comprising of MCQs and Mains Question- to help you apply the acquired knowledge

U – UnderstandThe best form of understanding will be to internalize knowledge gained and enhance retention through test discussions after every class

I – InteractReal-time interaction with teachers contributes to qualitative learning with instant clearance of doubts
