About the Initiative

Yojana magazine (released by Ministry of I&B) is increasingly finding a place in the questions of both UPSC Prelims and Mains.

Every Issue of Yojana deals with a single topic comprehensively sharing views from a wide spectrum ranging from academicians to policy makers to scholars. The magazine is essential to build an in-depth understanding of various socio-economic issues.

From the exam point of view, however, not all articles are important. Some go into scholarly depths and others discuss agendas that are not relevant for your preparation. Added to this is the difficulty of going through a large volume of information, facts and analysis to finally extract their essence that may be useful for the exam.

We are not discouraging from reading the magazine itself. So, do not take this as a document which you take read, remember and reproduce in the examination. Its only purpose is to equip you with the right understanding. But, if you do not have enough time to go through each and every Yojana magazine, you can rely on the content provided here for it sums up the most essential points from all the articles in Yojana.

You need not put hours and hours in reading Yojana and making its notes in pages. We believe a smart study, rather than hard study, of Yojana can improve your preparation levels. Hence, along with a gist of articles, we will provide a Q&A format from both Prelims and Mains, wherever required that may make you understand – “How to read Yojana?”

Think, learn, practice and keep improving! That is the key to success.
