Shankar IAS Academy

Current Affairs

An Introduction to IAS Parliament

In 2016, Shankar IAS Academy launched the ‘IAS Parliament’ initiative with the goal of assisting UPSC aspirants with their daily current affairs preparation for all UPSC CSE stages. It is specially designed to help beginners by explaining every part of the news properly and concisely.

With the help of our ‘Current Affairs’ section, we intend to comprehensively cover every day's current events relevant for the UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains exams from various sources, such as PIB, The Hindu, The Business Line, The Indian Express, Business Standard, Livemint, etc.

The ‘Prelim Bits’ section places a strong emphasis on news stories that are crucial for the UPSC CSE Prelims. The structure of the article makes it easier for the candidates to manage the dynamic nature of prelims questions.

In our ‘Daily News’ section, we provide daily news articles by deconstructing complexly worded news items, rearranging them logically, and adding missing facts and numbers that are vital for the UPSC CSE Mains.

Each section of our ‘Daily Tests’ unit has practice questions that are primarily intended to raise your Prelims score and give you writing practice for the Mains.

Our biggest area of expertise is the ‘Downloads’ section, where students can access a wide range of compilations to revise and enhance their preparation. We offer Monthly Current Affairs Magazine as well as yearly subject-specific collections (Target 2022 and Mainstorming 2022) that are designed exclusively to ace Prelims and Mains exams.

Our compilations of the ‘Budget and Economic Survey’ are shown as infographics that emphasise and summarise the key points in the publication.

Additionally, in order to aid candidates in their interview preparation, we also offer the ‘Gist of other Journals’, including Yojana, Kurukshetra, Science Monthly, IDSA, and EPW that provide clear perspectives on every problem.

Toppers from CSE 2020 and 2021's model answer scripts are posted in the ‘Toppers Corner’ to present an outline on answer structuring, content enrichment and paper presentation.

Thus, IAS Parliament, with the motto "Information is Empowering", has adapted dynamically to the new UPSC CSE pattern to assist students in enhancing their knowledge and realising their dream of joining the civil service.
