GS ECONOMY (Prelim-cum-Main) course
about GS ECONOMY: At the Mains level, there are four papers of the General Studies (GS)—one is titled as Economic Development, Science & Techno-logy; Security, Biodiversity, Environment & Disaster Management (i.e. GS Paper 3). In this paper, over 60 per cent of the topics belong to the Indian Economy/Indian Economics.
At the Prelims level, questions varied (in the last few years) between 12 to 45 in number. The good thing is that if aspirants are conceptually clear and updated, answering 100 per cent of the questions in Prelim & Main is not surprising.
other uses of GS ECONOMY: Closer analysis of the GS Mains syllabus informs us that over half of the topics of the 4 papers of the GS require "applied knowledge" of Economics—which should be updated, too!
about the COURSE: The course aims to enable students to solve "every possible" question on ECONOMY, "at any level" of the exam—Prelim, Main, Essay or Interview.
syllabus COVERAGE: It covers the whole Prelim & Main syllabi (Economic & Social Development). The details are given below—the topics printed in BOLD are prescribed by the UPSC (as it is) while rest of the topics (printed in NON-BOLD) are extra coverage without which tackling questions in Prelim, Main, Essay or Interview is just not possible—
- Making sense of the 'Economic & Social Development' (How to Prepare?)
- Growth, Development, Human Development & Happiness; India's idea of Inclusive growth and the issues arising from it.
- Economic policies of India—a Review.

MISCELLANEOUS: As the course aims at developing a fundamental 'understanding' of ECONOMICS and the INDIAN ECONOMY among the students, several related concepts and ideas are discussed in the classes. This makes the course easy enough for those who have no background in Economic.The course helps in such a big way that several students from the previous batches even opted Economics as their Optional !

- Being a dynamic subject, the lectures keep connecting to the current happenings in India and abroad. In this process classes also keep "linking" to the other papers of the GS, Essay & Interview.

About BASICS: Classes take care of all basics of Economics which give much pain to the students who don't have a background in the subject. Students don't need to read anything before joining the course. Just listening the class lectures is sufficient. Econmics was never so easy to handle!
Class Composition: Batches have limited number of students (max. 100), as crowd can not be groomed! This is why students get enough time to interact with Ramesh Singh.
Minimum half of the students in the batch are composed of those who have already taken coaching clasess for Economics or whole GS. Imagine, why they need to join Ramesh Singh...and need to take classes again....for the same subject?
Answer Writing: Answer Writing Practice is part of the course. This facility is available even after the course has got over.
Tests: Regular tests for Prelim and Main are organised with timely feedback given to the students.
Mentoring: Students are mentored with the "Integrated Approach" (an idea developed by Ramesh Singh, first published by the Civil Services Chronicle, December 2007). This approach helps students to save labour and use their information at multiple places in multiple ways.
