"Building a career in the civil services requires a genuine passion to see 'a better India'. Our country needs honest & imaginative officers today more than ever. I always held Mr.C.D.Deshmukh as my ideal and tried to inculcate the best of 'Officer-Like Qualities' in me. For me, studying for such competitive examinations itself has been 'personality development'. I would say this experience has built my character too. It feels exhilarating to have passed one of the toughest examinations in the world. It has taken extreme patience, enthusiasm & competitive spirit to reach here.

"C D Deshmukh Institute played a crucial role in my success in the UPSC Civil Services Examination. It provided me a platform where I got the right mixture of theoretical guidance from the faculty and practical guidance from my seniors. The "healthy atmosphere" in the Institute enabled free flow of knowledge and information among the students. All this helped me gain competitive edge in this exam. This was especially important for a candidate like me who had not taken any formal coaching elsewhere. I thank Prof. Pendse and Prof. Bal for their support and my seniors Ms Ujjwala Bhagwat, Mr Shailendra Mishra and Ms Pooja Tillu for their valuable guidance. My Best Wishes to the Institute in its monumental work of producing efficient Civil Servants. "

"The experience of preparing for the Civil Services has not only made me develop a longing for knowledge but also made me socially aware.

Optional Subjects : Geography, Agriculture

"CD Institute has played important role in our journey to the success. My optional subjects are Agriculture n Geography; and the directors of the institute have thrown great support which encouraged me to not only take such a non-popular and risky combination of optional but to be successful with very first attempt. Teachers have provided us various magazines and books for additional reading. This has been proved beneficial in writing mains answers. Institute has provided liberal use of internet, which is very important for updates in general studies and even for optional subjects like the one I had. Above all, institute gave me opportunity to use the resources available with them and provided me the space to explore my ideas to develop my own material for mains."

"I started my preparation in C.D.Deshmukh Institute and was benefited by the lectures conducted here. The group formed in C.D.Deshmukh Institute was very helpful in case of discussion on a particular topic to have the perspectives from all the angles. Regular reading of the newspapers helped me a lot. I used the data on current affairs in every possible answer including that of optional subjects. My strong point was that I was able to keep myself cool in every stressful situation which an aspirant faces. Don't lose the patience, believe in yourself and the success will be yours...All the Best!!!"
