toppers every year. The praise for IASbaba from the toppers from ILP bear testimony to
our quality driven work ethics.

The best thing about ILP is the way it minimises your efforts and channelises your
energy in the right direction. One enrolled with ILP, forget about the worries of

form of Value Add Notes and Babapedia. You will get to know other details of ILP in this
document. Once you join the ILP, make this document your friend, philosopher and
