    Traditionally students refer ( used to refer ) Vajiram & Sriram Current Affairs notes. Anything that would be amiss in one would be there in the other one and hence coverage would more or less be complete

    However in last 2 years people have started to refer to Vision Notes too as a full time alternative to the above - in the pursuit of single source.

    If you ask me Vision is a good summary of The Hindu. If you miss Hindu, you could cover all of it from Vision IAS Notes.

    You will have to refer to more than one of then, unfortunately as there is still No single source for UPSC prep, and nor is this possible.

    But let not two sources be a reason for not doing any of them, e.g. You dont do Vision because someone says Vajiram is good, and dont do Vaji because someone says Vision is good.

    Start preparing issues, and refer to whatever the duck you think is a better source. Can refer to one or many - but try to consolidtae everything in your own notes at the end of it.

    Before the exam you would like to have one source at max.

    Hope it helps.

    Sriram is good in Economics no doubt n Vision is catching up, but still Vajiram holds highest share in the market. Vision has created buzz with PT-365 which is a gr8 initiative n gave a competitive advantage to it, but I believe that other institutes including Vajiram too will come up with such initiatives.

    One of the parameters you put is Interesting and easy to read. Vision considerably lacks on this parameter. It's hard to read the fonts almost every time. The stuff is goof though. With Vajiram you will find all the 4 parameters streamlined. So in my view, Vajiram CA is better than anyone.
