Warm Greetings to One And All. All of us recognized the fact that the relevance of Economics, Indian Economy and its applications as discipline among UPSC Civil Services aspirants, graduates, policy makers, academicians and laymen is enlarging day by day. Its graph grows up with static and dynamic events that occur in any field of economics: domestically or globally. The said subject is inseparable with human life as the techniques of economics are widely used in our daily life knowingly or unknowingly. Focusing on UPSC & State Civil Services and B.A. Economics Program, this website deals with a number of topics with updated facts on GST, demonetization, implications and ramifications of economic policies, sustainable development, inflation and so on. This endeavour is to familiarize the new aspirants with Preliminary Stage, Mains Examinations and Personality Test of UPSC Civil Services Examinations. Here, my attempt is to give tips and techniques for civil services aspirants, power point presentations, details of my books, model questions, Economic Survey & Union Budget, current economy, study materials and so on. Hopefully, the website can overcome the widely observed economic-phobia/aversion among civil services aspirants and graduate level students. I wish all the very best to the aspirants.
