Dear Aspirants,

Due to lockdown our sources of revenue to run the portal without loss have been affected due to dwindling revenues as well as increase in expenses.

We are now forced to adopt the method of crowdfunding to run our current initiatives any further. We have also restarted Daily Current Affairs and PIB Analyisis hence if you are using our platform then we request you to contribute generously so that we can function without much financial difficulties. Contributions can be made of any denomination.

We try not to ask too much of our users but be at your generous best! Link for voluntary contribution is provided below.

Support IAS SQUAD and Help us grow

Thank You
