Current Affairs Repository for Prelims 2018 - [Jan 2018 to June 2018]

Dear Members,

All of you are well aware of that fact that current affairs forms the major chunk of prelims preparation. There are many resources to follow and we end up following just a few, time being the major constraint.

Since each of us follow different newspapers and sources on a daily basis, it would be helpful for both you and the aspirant community if we can pool in topics of current affairs that we come across everyday. It will also be helpful for revision as prelims approaches near.

It will take just 15 to 20 mins of your time everyday but trust me, in the end it will be immensely beneficial.

We are going to classify the topics according to the codes below,

Subject - Code

History - HIS
Polity - POL
Economics - ECN
Environment and Ecology - ENV
Science and Tech - SNT
Geography, Places, Maps - GEO
International Relations and Summits - IR
Schemes - SCH
Ranking, Awards and Recognition - RAR
Reports - REP
Committees - COM

Please feel free to add any other codes for any other topics.

I will archive this thread on a daily basis, so one need not worry about this thread getting deleted.

Example format of the post,


[IR] - Bodhi Parva
[SCH] - Guru shishya parampara scheme
[SNT] - National Certification System for Tissue culture raised plants, Nobel Prize 2017 in Physics and Indian connection

Wishing us great success in this initiative,

Yours Truly,
