Refund Policy of ClearIAS Classes
It is the mission of ClearIAS to provide high-quality classes to our students.
In case of any concerns with the classes, faculties, or mentors, you can email or call our support team. We shall try to quickly solve your queries and concerns.
Demo Classes: We provide Demo Classes for aspirants to assess the quality of the classes offered by us. Demo classes are provided along with most of the premium packages/courses. Any aspirant is welcome to take Demo Classes for FREE.
Demo Classes are provided with the expectation that aspirants get enough opportunities to assess the features and quality of our platform.
No Refund Policy: With respect to our premium classes and programs, we focus only on serious candidates. To discourage non-serious users to take advantage of our premium classes, we follow a zero-refund policy. Except in cases of double payment, we cannot offer a refund.
Please read ClearIAS Classes’ terms and conditions carefully before joining any courses, as once the payment is made, you cannot change or cancel the course or plan. Once you make the required payment (fees) for a course, it shall be final and there cannot be any refund.
Refund Policy of ClearIAS Mock Exams
At ClearIAS we believe in providing quality services. End-user satisfaction is our primary concern. Free model exams are provided to judge the quality and features of ClearIAS Mock Exams, and hence, refund requests are extremely rare with ClearIAS (less than 0.1%).
Even when we get any such requests, we see if there is any merit in the case.
- Refund requests if raised will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If we find merit in the case, we may issue a full or partial refund, as the case may be. If there is no merit in the case, we will not issue a refund.
- If there is any double payment, just inform us on the email id contactus[at]clearias.com within 3 working days. Once verified we shall issue a full refund in 7 working days.
- For technical problems (if any), if the refund request is raised within 3 working days, we shall verify the same and issue a refund after deducting the payment gateway fees, if any.
- If any request is raised after we paid tax (GST) for the month, we reserve the right to deduct the GST paid from our pocket on the same.
- If the user takes more than 3 exams and then raises a refund request, he/she will be eligible only for a partial refund. The refund rate will be calculated on the basis of the rate of individual exams. Refunds will be calculated on a pro-rata basis deducting the cost of exams already taken.
- We don’t entertain refunds on cases we feel are silly, fraudulent, or with malign intentions. If any fraud is noticed, we may permanently ban the user from taking any future mock exams and will lock the user’s account. Please note that we will not entertain a request for a refund (FULL or PRO-RATED) when we have suspended or terminated your access to ClearIAS Services due to a violation of our Terms of Service.
In brief, we will do our best to address your issue, provide a workaround or give a timeline for a solution that will meet your needs. If you are not satisfied, we will gladly offer a full or partial refund – if your request is genuine, and raised within a reasonable timeframe.
