Synergy ...chanakya...ingights... cousin ias academy.
This is compete fraud either by institutes or by candidate. If it is on part of institutes , can the topper do some thing to stop this non sense.
I was fully expecting this drama post results.

    AIR 1 has availed test series of Synergy, vision and he might have enrolled for PI from others as he even enrolled for Narayana Srichiatanya in hyderabad as well. (He is IPS at NPA hyd)

    So, by virtue of 3-4 test series and 2-3 PI, it is evident that all 6-7 institutes jumped the gun and claimed exclusive credit for his rank :P It is part of the agreement when they give you free PI coaching after you clear Mains.

    There is no need for you to cry foul and call someone Fraud. It is way over the top.

    The students need to understand this and make proper judgments. There is an institute in hyd that claims 60% selections every year, we all know how true it is.

    agreed. But institutes should mention who studied what where. It is not correct to claim the success only on basis of a single mock interview/test/personal sitting the candidate might have undertook. The reason institutes ask you to fill the registration form as soon as you go to them just for an enquiry (happened with me at chankaya) is this nonsense. For example Baliyan screams in todays hindu about AIR 1. Now it might be true he studied history in his last attempt in 2012 but it is not ethical to claim success on this basis for 2013 when he did not even appear with history [-X
  • @Shining_Corona

    Definitely Baliyan should be sued and I request @crazyphoton to do the needful.

    It is equivalent to deceit and we all know AIR 1 wrote with Economics and Baliyan by virtue of 2012 coaching of history is talking big & taking credit in 2013.

    But Baliyan has pretty bad reviews all over the web and i am sure many will not fall into the trap but the ones who rely on paper ads might fall prey.

    Can we complain to advertisement council or press council in this regard of spreading false info in ads.

  • this is the heights of cheapness by baliyan.....gives u more reasons as to why not to join coaching institutes....the sad part is there will still be packed classes for baliyan going after these ads...
  • This is compete fraud either by institutes or by candidate.
    You are stretching it too far.

    @Thor - The institute in question might have done something unethical but a legal case against it won't stand. They can of course claim that their history guidance helped the AIR-1 in GS-I (history & culture) which was highlighted in the Ad.
  • Mrunal has already spoken about this issue. And at the end of the day serious aspirants do not fall for such traps. And * any way * all the newbies make some mistake or other and those who fall for the ads will learn through experience, albeit at a cost. No point outraging.

  • did AIR 1 take coaching for general studies at Vajiram or any other institute or did he prepare on his own? Anyone?
  • @livermore_2014 he did take coaching for 6 mnths in delhi after which he continued with his studies in jaipur...i am not sure abt the coaching institute..
  • Hw did he tk test deries of synergy n vision while on traini g of IPS..vision ka to offline bhi chlta hai waise...is it equally beneficial dat way giving tests at home etc..

  • One interesting observation Vajiram and Ravi has so far not claimed any success. Maybe they are planning to publish later but I did not see any print ad from them
