How to prepare Current Affairs in time for Prelims 2017, starting from March 1?

Hi,

I haven't been able to prepare current affairs this year, due to some personal troubles. I have revised the static portion of the syllabus once already, and feel pretty confident about it. Last year, I failed prelims due to poor preparation in current affairs. Is it possible to prepare current affairs in time for prelims, starting from March 1?

What are the best resources, and the strategy to go about it. I am in Delhi, so getting material is not an issue.

Thanks.

    If you somehow want to just clear prelims - then OK

    But if you want to see your name in 2017's final merit by starting prep of current affairs from now onwards - not possible as shortcuts won't help

    You'll need to go through past 1.5 yrs - 2 newspapers thoroughly
