Is it so that Delhi is the Vatican City for the Civil services aspirants ??

My comparision of "delhi" wid " the vatican" may sound irrelevant to many here on this forum but the answers I got by a few seniors here about a query I had has made me think so. Not everyone can afford to go to delhi to attend a coaching for IAS n dat doesn't stops them for dreaming about d same. I have heard of many who were from small villages and towns succeeded becoming an IAS/IPS n these things bring a lot of inspiration n strength in me too.
Well in my case I was planning to join a decent coaching in LUCKNOW next month for CSE 2016 but I have no Idea about any of them. Although have heard a few names like Sarthak, Dheyaya, Prayatna, RACE, CL etc but I got more
Confused after reading their sequence given on the internet on various websites. I need for both pre n mains, don't know what to do now :(( Many said dat lucknow has no coaching worthy preparing for IAS, is it so ??

Wanna know if anyone from lucknow can help. Thank you !
