Termination of Account : Review Threads + Room Seeking Threads + Other irrelevant threads

Dear Friends,

As the Mains Examination gets over, we will be aiming to have Interview oriented discussions focusing on

1) Interview preparation for 2016
2) Prelims & Mains Preparation for 2017 aspirants ONLY

We have seen proliferation of

1) Room seeking threads such as


and profiles that spam the forum by copy pasting the same message on old threads. A sample

Note :

We will have only one dedicated thread for Rooms and Roommates for IAS preparation -


Every year during admission season, new threads are creates seeking review


Please do not use the platform for marketing.

Review Threads

Also do not create new threads seeking review. Mobile number of ForumIAS users is currently not verified and it is seen that vested interests create threads to

1) Promote or dis-promote or write negative reviews about institutes or service providers
2) Fees/refund issues are settled by threatening to post on ForumIAS

We received legal notices for all such things done by you that add no value to the discussion . Moreover, the people who send us legal notices are powerful enough to execute those threats. In case you have written something that is genuine but makes personal attacks, we will be forced to disclose your details in case of a legal issue and your career with all government jobs will be in jeopardy. Please do not do such things.

If you are genuinely seeking help, please follow the candidates who have written Mains or Interview or are selected and you can ask them advice over PM. Most people will be willing to help you out. People can share what they felt. There are thousands of members who have cleared Prelims , mains and Interview on the forum, and you can ask them.

If you are a commercial entity, please do not promote your product through threads. All such threads will be deleted and accounts suspended.

Please note that we may not be able to delete each and every thread or terminate each and every account. Because others are doing it is no excuse for you to do it.

Coaching opening threads & other threads

It will be our policy to discourage job posting, coaching opening an other threads and suspend such accounts as they do not contribute to preparation for civil services.


  • Bhai also protest threads....unnecessary
  • That's something long desired.. kudos @ForumIAS team.. now just follow this religiously.. ATB :)
    Being IAS... 4 U Onlyyy... :-)
  • Idk when will you begin to use OTP thing. Anyway, good step.
    Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.
  • A much needed step to bring some sanity in this forum :)
    The day we decided that the worth of an individual was determined by their performance in an examination, that was the day Education failed us.

    Long live Revolution, Down with ForumIAS. Ban me Mods
  • Long overdue ... Make ForumIAS great again!!
  • Good step, strict implementation will make the platform even better :)
    कभी किसी को मुकम्मल जहाँ नहीं मिलता..
    कहीं ज़मीं तो कहीं आसमां नहीं मिलता.....

  • @root


    Well intentioned step
    Please also keep a check on thousands of Coaching Review pages that Coaching institutes have opened for themselves kindly streamline them in a few thread

    Hope so implementation of new order will be good :)
    New year resolution 2017: keep away from forum
