JSSTICE at the present offers full-time training to candidates aspiring to join All India Services or State Civil Services. It is necessary that only serious candidates who can spare at least seven hours daily for study and training need apply. There is no part-time course. The Institute receives every year more than a thousand applications for admission. A written test and individual interview are conducted for selecting students for admission. Only 90 most promising candidates are selected strictly on merit basis. JSSTICE offers training in 4 packages as explained hereunder.
