UPSC 2019 preparation group at Central Secretariat Library, Delhi

So I have zeroed on the CSL which is housed in Shastri Bhavan.

Pros:
Huge spacious reading room
well ventilated
adequate lighting
AC
Located near a metro station exit
FREE

Cons
No wifi
Toilets are small, compared to footfall
you wont get dedicated reading spaces. You cant book specific spaces
there is no privacy i.e. lack of cubicles.

I am looking for a focused preparation group. If anyone wants to go/already goes there regularly, do hit me up. Maybe we can help each other out.

    @Kira_0705 I had called them. They told me that you need to be a bonafide researcher/ student of modern history to avail their services, as it is not a public library.

    Is this true. Please confirm? I would not mind visiting Nehru Library at all.
