  1. Thank u. Audio of L5/P2 got some disturbances. i am able to hear some other people chating… instead of Mrunal’s lecture. (only here and there). pls correct… future lectures.

  2. sir ur lecture s not at all useful for the south indian rural people pls provide with the written format as u would give earlier, atleast we would be able 2 understand in english , pls work for the greater benefit

  3. Sir how much lecture is remaining and when u start article writing and what about the current affairs weekly

  4. Even today itself in morning i was thinking what if Mrunal.org unavailable how can i prepare for my exam,what i saw after 2 hours that site is not working. ut relaxed to see that site also available offline.
    Thanks Team !

  5. Is the upsc ever going to announce the mains result?
    Itne time me to logon ki naukri lag ke, promotion bhi ho jata hai……

  6. Hii mrunal,

    Plz provide a study plan for fci ag3 technical.
    And book list also specially for technical part.

  7. Frnd plz clarify my doubt……

    I m jat by caste and my dob is 02 aug 1984. I was having obc certificate and applied for nabard in obc category as there was age relaxation of three years for obc. Having cleared both grade a and grade b phase 1, got call letter for phase 2. Now recently supreme court has scraped jat reservation. Though i m sure that i will be counted as general candidate for phase 2 result, but the doubt remains that m i even eligible or not because i m 31 years old.

    Sincere n quick replies are welcome.

  8. मृणाल सर आपने कमाल कर दिया
    हिन्दुस्तान में अच्छी अच्छी आईएएस के नाम पर बेवक़ूफ़ बनाने वाली कोचिंग का धंधा बैठा दिया
    अब एक ग्रामीण क्षेत्र की छात्रा भी आईएएस बन सकती है
    बड़े बड़े टीचर्स आज mrunal.org से गाइडेंस लेते है , अंतर यह है की अब वो झूठा अहंकार नहीं कर सकते
    जब छात्र कहता है की सर में द हिन्दू पड़ता हूँ ,मृणाल देख लेता हूँ तो फीस के नाम पर मोटी रकम मांगने पर शर्माते जरूर हैं।

    Mrunal Sir u r amazing
    u have brought down the big coaching names in India,these coaching
    in name of UPSC are making good business.
    a student of the rural area can also become a IAS
    great teachers taking guidance from mrunal.org today, the difference is that now they can not show false ego
    and shy to ask for the big bucks.

    1. good….honest appproach…liked it….hmesha bde log humble aur simple hi milenge,,,,,,,,,,thumbs up!!!!!

  9. sir,

    Your lectures well known throughout India and beneficial to all civil aspriants,sir as your lecture was in hindi candidates belonging to south region may not understand pls give english version or else present explanation as an article as you were previously did.

    sir ek bat aaur kahena chahuga me dusaro ke bare me nahi janata par mere liye app sir GOD ho. kyu ki aaisi seva ek khuda ka banda hi kar sakata hai.

  11. Respected Mrunal Sir,
