This is one book, which I always prefer to buy in original, in hardcopy . I love the smell and the colors :-) Its a pleasure to read, and tells you exactly the agenda of the govt.
Members, those of you have have already read parts of Eco Survey, please kindly share, graphically ( if possible ) things to do from Economic Survey.

Vajiram Students if any, please share what Kapuria Sir has asked to cover from it.

P.S. I created this just so that I could remind myself, that if noone replies, I shall share a write up on all the things to be done from Economic Survey. :-)

    Just ordered it off Infibeam, Flipkart is supposedly charging Rs 50 extra as delivery charges. However, the date of delivery for InfiBeam is by April 1st if you were to order today.
    Just a heads up in case any of the members were to consider buying.

  • Dumb Question - Why do we need to study the Economic Survey ? What are the alternatives for it ?

    Please have a well reasoned comment so that a newbie may be inspired to study it.
    & yes kindly elaborate the "what to study in Economic Survey" part.

    The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.

    anyone please volunteer for the same sort of list provided by vajiram..... @GAMBITTTT ..
  • flipkart has gone really greedy. when it started the free delivery used to be at 100...it went to 200 then 300 and now 500....i'll prefer infibeam even if that means delivery will be a little late
  • @corona True that man! In fact, I am mad at Flipkart for constantly raising the free delivery service charges! They could have an option like Premium Delivery for Rs. 50 in 1-2 days, and regular delivery time of say 5 days! (That is, if they are claiming high operational costs)

    I see it more as monopolistic tendencies once it has expanded so universally.

  • i hv got printouts of economic survey...do i still need this book??
  • @kiranrehal You don't need the book if you have the printouts of the book.

    can you share the link , is that the final price ?
  • @Cyrus_A I would suggest you to go with Infibeam, or best go for a bookstore near you. Have had pathetic experience with eBay. Plus there are chances of getting a fake copy. (It is cheaper than the cheapest bookstore in Delhi + free shipping? = Too good to be true ) Because the website does not sell per se, but individual seller's do.

  • @Cyrus_A: I agree with @Newayn. Though I hastily ordered from e-bay, the guy who's supposed to deliver me isn't responding now. #LessonLearnt

  • @kazhung Please ignore Manorama Book, focus on the core : Polity, Modern History, Geography, Environment & Ecology, Culture, & Programs & policies.

  • Manorama = No Mama. [-X

  • Hii

    It's very boring to study Ecosurvey with full of stats .. So I guess we together can compile a smart and short doc covering imp areas from it .. I have started compiling a summary of Ecosurvey to be helpful for prelims as well as mains Preparation.. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RX1KrKLiGi7nGDoco-9H_DICkjKL4scwLJHpRoIdsAk/edit#

    The doc is still in preliminary stage .. Please contribute.. !!
  • @shashank123p
