Hope your preparation is going with full throttle.
In the coming tests we will be covering two very important documents of Government of India.
The Economic survey and India Year Book.
The importance of Economic survey is known to everyone. Questions have been asked directly from it in both prelims and mains.
They real tricky part is the India Year Book. To be very honest, some of the chapters in IYB are redundant. They are full of static data which is not exactly important for examination point of view. Moreover, most of the important details of India year book are covered in other documents also like economic survey, Yojna etc. so a detailed study of India Year Book is not required.
Then why do we have to cover it?
In the current scenario, when GS paper has become the sole deciding factor of your selection or elimination from prelims, we cannot take half measures. There are certain important chapters which needs cursory glance so that nothing important is missed. We have mentioned those chapters in the schedule.
One doesn’t need to read every single line and data from the Year book. What you need to see is the trend, whether something is increasing or decreasing and the chapter specific schemes and government measures. You can afford to leave very old schemes. Try to optimize your time and effort and get the maximum output from your input.
All the best.
