 Reviews of Shriram IAS 

  • Sriram sir himself teaches polity here, his teaching is wonderful, he is a gem. The polity material is also too good, some people even study this material only not Laxmikanth. He links the current affairs with the static polity section to make the subject matter clear to us. History sir is also a renowned faculty.

  • I am a current student of Sriram’s GTB nagar batch. The batch started from 6th of august. Till now, only Sci Tech has been completed in 1 month and my experience is very satisfactory. Sci Tech was taught by Dr Banarjee and he taught it pretty well. Sriram Sir is best in his subjects ( Polity, Economics and IR ), as i have heard from a lot of seniors. The management is helpful and classes are fairly arranged. They are doing their best. Rest lies with us.
