IMPORTANT DISCLAIMERS
1. PT Education, PT's IAS Academy and its associates will in no way be responsible for any policy changes in the admission criteria &/or the evaluation criteria in the UPSC IAS entrance exams as stipulated by the Central Government or the UPSC or any other statutory authority, from time to time. Once a student has made a conscious choice and decision to enrol for any of our programmes (self prep mode or classroom mode, full solution or modulewise etc.), the responsibility of PT will extend only to completely providing the course materials and services as specified in the content above. The student is personally responsible for verifying his/her eligibility for appearing and all associated matters, at any point in time. 2. Each video lecture is password protected. These passwords are time-bound. 3. For maximum effectiveness - You have to isolate yourself in your study room, sit with your Laptop/PC, and study with your notebook and pen as if you are actually in the classroom. You must make notes when the faculty dictates the same. If not taken seriously, the course has limited effectiveness. 4. Course fees (and living cost at) Delhi based institutes and other places may vary from time to time. We have given just a broad comparison. You are advised to check it for yourself once.
