A decade has passed since Lakshya Academy was established with a mission that students from Maharashtra should lead the list of successful candidate in the UPSC examination and join the administrative services. In 2002, when Lakshya IAS Academy was found, only about 18 to 20 students used to opt for Administrative services. But today, the number has increased substantially due to the stellar role played by Lakshya Academy Mumbai. Lakshya IAS Academy has successfully organized several workshops and seminar for students and presents in various districts of Maharashtra to enlighten them about the UPSC examination with the help of publicity from media and popular Marathi Dailies. The students who showed interest were offered rigorous training and coaching classes by Lakshya IAS Institute combined with guidance from excellent professors and tutors, test series and a well equipped library in Mumbai. Having reviewed the outstanding study material found in the states of UP, Bihar, Delhi, and other states, it was made available to students. The outcome was amazing Around 60 to 70 students from Maharashtra stood in the merit list and for three years successively. Maharashtra has acquired the third or fourth ranking with regard to the number of students in the UPSC merit list. The mission is to set a benchmark by taking Maharashtra to the first position as far as UPSC examinations are concerned. Lakshya Academy dares to look beyond and proudly understands - what we teach today, others adopt tomorrow.......
To Increase Maharashtra’s share in Direct Decision Making Process
According to 2011census, India has a population of 1.21 Billion. The political and administrative prospects are in the hands of politicians and administrative cadre. Some of the youngsters do not digest the muddy and queer ways in politics. They have an option to be part of the decision making group, grabbing the lion’s share. LAKSHYA ACADEMY aims to train and prepare such young men and women and turn them into able administrators. Lakshya Academy strives for more active part in this.
To prepare able and skillful administrator’s team
Indian Constitution vows for a strong and prosperous India and has entrusted the Administrative services with certain special rights. To exercise and implement them skillfully an able Administrative class is needed. LAKSHYA ACADEMY has gathered the resources to prepare the trained, able Administrators who have not forgotten their duty to the social development - It’s such people with a philanthrophic bent of mind who need not despise or ignore politics but rather improve it.

Enlightening the young talent and grooming them for IAS, IPS, IFS
Mumbai is the financial capital of the nation. Many important events took place here, before and after the independence. Yet students do not take keen interest and show a lack of awareness for competitive exams like the UPSC. Maharashtra lags behind. The aim of Lakshya Academy is to render qualitative training to the talented young mind and groom them to succeed in IAS, IPS, IFS competitive exams.
The Reasons: Maharashtra lags behind in competitive tests because.....
Students from Maharashtra have made tremendous progress in corporate field but their presence in Government Administration especially at the helm is negligible. Maharashtra contributes to 10% national population but less than 7% to its administration.
To add to this young boys and girls from the state are lured by medical, engineering and other lucrative fields. The lustre of media also attracts them. It is imperative that Maharashtra should have a definite say in the national administration and in national affairs. The UPSC provides a vast scope and candidates should take a constructive advantage of this opportunity
Population, Graduates and competitive tests
Around 4 to 5 lac students graduate with some degree per year, out of 11.24 crore population of Maharashtra. In spite of this only 60-70 candidates are selected for IAS, IFS and IPS and allied services. For instance, In 2010, 70 candidates got selected. This is why, we say there is a huge scope for a career in the Administrative field.
Administrative Power of Maharashtra vis a vis other states
Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh from North, and Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Kerala from south send more than 70% of their youth for the Competitive tests to serve either state or central cadre. Maharashtra should, infact send many more candidates and strengthen its cadre. These candidates are well versed with the local problems and hence may be the right people to govern their own state.
Preparing the policy makers
It is Administration that draws out developmental plans. The actual implementation of these plans spells the development, prosperity of the State or Nation. Though Maharashtra is a progressive State and a lot has been done in that direction, still it is not sufficient. In that context, the people mostly conversant with the State’s problems, alone, can tackle them. The aim of Lakshya Academy is to take concentrated efforts to prepare these students who are conversant and able administrators by giving them appropriate guidance.
To continue the main administrative force from
C.D. Deshmukh to Ajit Joshi And next...
Mr. C.D. Deshmukh earned the honor by obtaining first rank in the then renowned ICS Exams (now known as CSE-IAS) from all over the country. India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was astonished by his excellence and administrative skills and bestowed on him the Honored designation of being the First appointed Finance minister of Republic India. In order to sustain, the tradition of revered Mr. C.D. Deshmukh, #LakshyaAcademy has incessantly fulfilled its role of being #catalyst in the making of many more such able aspirants into IAS officers in the form of Mr. Ajit Joshi & Mr. Vinod Kawale (IAS), Mr. Deepak Shinde (IAS), Mr. Rohan Samant (IPS), Ms Puja Tillu (IFS) who have been torch bearers of this tradition.
