You can prepare yourself from home but due to stiff competition students join coaching centers. Delhi is a hub for IAS aspirants, and if you can join Delhi University or JNU for your Masters, it will help you a great deal as the environment makes you familiar about the nuances of preparation and success. You may explore coaching centers in Bangaluru as well e.g. Rau's, Bharat Coaching etc. So, visit a nearest IAS Coaching center, ask their modules/models of training and cost, accordingly you decide.
