Geography, the most popular and multidisciplinary optional, is a pratical subject. Taking the understanding of this subject in classroom makes the preparations foolproof.

The class curriculum is oriented to enhance not just the understanding the subject but also the interdependent and interrelated nature of the discipline. It helps aspirants to overlap the GS preparations with the subject as well.

The institute in its commitment of extending support to the aspirants has initiated correspondence guidelines. This scheme has been launched for the aspirants who reside outside Delhi and due to any of the hindrances, are not able to enroll for the regular classes.

In the programme therefore class notes are also included. It definetly do not make up entirely for the class but provides the right direction to utilize the material for self preparations. The ready reference source as model answers, map books etc. largely compensate the requirement.
