    Introduction

    Current Affairs is the backbone of the IAS Exam Preparation and all the other things flows or related to it in one or the other way. Also it is a fact now that there are lots of current affairs books in the market which are actually leading the candidates away from the UPSC IAS Exam Questions Trend.

    The decline in the final marks of the selected candidates in the Merit list suggest that the approach of the current affairs study material prevailing in the market is not qualified enough to address the needs of the UPSC Exam at any level.

    UPSC takes the litmus test of candidates at each and every level of exam but in actual it is the test of the study material which they chose to study during their IAS Exam Preparation.

    Current Affairs plays the most influential and important role in the changed pattern of IAS Examination. The importance of Current Affairs is increased in many folds in the new pattern of IAS Examination. Current Affairs is now paying the pivotal role in the IAS Exam Preparation.

    We are happy to launch this Current Affairs Today for IAS Exam monthly magazine which will plug in the Gap emerging due to the lack of good study material for the IAS Exams.

    The approach of this Current Affairs monthly magazine is to cover the analysis part of the current affairs topic in details. Analysis of the current Affairs is the most important part if the civil services exam preparation and it helps in the IAS Prelims As well as in the IAS Main Examination as a whole including the IAS interview.

    This is the inaugural issue of the Current Affairs Today for IAS Exam monthly magazine and we have tried to cover all the important current affairs topics and in addition to it we have covered Government Schemes and some important issues which are not in the news in the recent times but have their relevance for the IAS Exam.
