Manoj Jha: "SMALL batches help our students."-BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT

Interview with Manoj Jha of Chronicle IAS Academy, Delhi.

CHRONICLE Publications has created a name for itself through its various books and magazines for civil services General Studies. Frontline spoke to Manoj Jha, its director. Excerpts from the interview:

Why do you think civil services aspirants should opt for your institute?

We have in our faculty experienced names like S.K. Mishra, IAS (retd.), Rajiv Ranjan Singh and Dr Surendra Kumar Singh. Classroom sessions are practice-driven and make use of well-researched content. The small batches help students gain individual attention. Our magazine, Civil Services Chronicle, the most circulated for the UPSC examination, was started by N.N. Ojha 22 years ago.

What are the subjects your institute specialises in?

We specialise in general studies, the CSAT, public administration and sociology. General Studies is taught by a team of 20 experienced hands. In short, experience meets performance at Chronicle.

What changes has the CSAT brought to the civil services examinations?

CSAT is not like a bank exam. It is an extension of the first paper, General Studies.

How should civil services aspirants prepare in these times?

They need courage and strength of character to take the examination. There is hardly any room for carelessness and complacency.
