    This list is more than that sir has asked, questions nowadays are becoming dynamic and are pertaining to uncovered sections from the above mentioned topic. Hitherto the questions were repeating or predictable but now it is changed. I have pointed the topics which are otheerwise not covered in the Savindra singh's Physical geography.

    PS: If you are looking for exact page number then it wont help you to consolidate the concepts. Read the chapter in its entirety to gain the context of its discussion. (Are you in the test series batch?)

    Regional Geography paper 1and paper 2
    1. If you can manage printed notes of ALS on the regional planning then it is more than sufficient on the topic (if supplemented with the latest development in the schemes of the govermnet on the tribal, rural, backward, balanced regional development etc.)
    2. Otherwise, read from either Tiwari/ Khullar for paper 2. ( You have to supplement the schemes with latest development because much has changedsince the book was written. Preferably read the NITI Ayog report on India action plan for the regional development, rural development and the Urban Development)

    Made simple has also covered the topic in comprehensive manner on this topic, but it ca't be a standalone source. There are certain thiings which you will not find in the books like
    1. Methods of regionalisation
    2. types of region

    ALS printed notes has covered the topic but not in comprehensive manner. I have supplemented this with multiple handwriten coaching notes. If you can manage reading from the multiple sources then I will advise you to buy handwritten coaching notes of all major coaching Institutes preferably Shabbir sir, Alok Ranjan sir and ALS( Printed notes not handwritten )

    Biogeography

    > I have prepared it from the Rupa made physical and Examrace's youtube videos

    Economic geography

    > Read first the Rupa made economic geography on the Industries , resouces and energy, then move on to Mrunal's Industrial location. After this read either from the Khullar/ Tiwari for the Indian Industries. Look out for the locational aspects, challenges, prospects, trends and pattern on each of the 10-12 Industries mentioned in the syllabus.
    - Supplement this with the latest shcmes lik make in India and other such plicies and initiatives of the government to spur Industries.
