    The unique n easy way of remembering thru their mindmaps are commendable. Its the one stop solution of contemporary articles n current affrs with updated data n facts. A smarter way of prep?

    • Thanks, Spalzes for the nice review. Your suggestions on hot topics really helped. My best wishes for your attempt in UPSC 2019. You will achieve this time considering your hard work and perseverance.

  2. Vikas Hooda

    TO be really honest I haven’t seen or found any platform on internet which could match the output ratio of IAS express , this platform is just unbelievably amazing and very effective in quick revision .
    Why I liked this platform –
    • very very low cost for notes of all the (pre + mains ) subjects add to that CA topics analysis from various newspapers on hot topic
    • notes designed in a way which help you to recollect more while revising rather than just reading them
    • most of the notes from standard books i.e laxmikant , Ramesh singh , Tamilnadu history books
    • most striking features are that my friends can also use my ID and read these notes and IAS Express respond to emails immediately

    few areas which I feel disappointed me (well after getting so many benefits at such a low disappointment is compromisable )
    • only one person is managing all this which takes a little more time

    This is the first time writing a feedback on any website simply because of the reason that I have liked it very very very…………..much.
    Thank you

    • Thank you so much, Vikas for making the time to provide such a nice review. And thanks for all the feedbacks and updates that you’ve frequently suggested to me. I’m working on it. IAS EXPRESS will become a one-stop destination for UPSC aspirants in no time. Thanks for being a member.

  3. Shubhreet

    Minds maps are amazing , huge topics can be revised in 15 minutes .
    Every topic of static syllabus is covered .
    Monthly magazines very crisp and everything has a background info.

  4. Mrinal Singh

    Best site for preparation. I have enrolled in another site but this site provides me with the to-the-point articles which are needed for your mains writing. I would like to tell everyone one should invest in this site and you will not regret it after taking membership. thank you iasexpress for doing such a great job.

  5. Mohan

    A great way to retain the subject with crisp points. A single book strategy for a subject ends up in a score around the cutoff. In some perspective, “Too much materials seems to be dangerous”. Studying more and more books of same subject also leads to confusion at the last minute. IE’s approach of balancing these two strategies is definitely a saviour for last minute revision and face the exam with more confidence.

  6. Chandhana pandi.K

    It’s very effective initiative at the same time, if this happened as soon as definitely all the environment will be changed perfectly after that we can get hundered percent pure oxygen and by this innovative in future never seen pollution and regarding this need to show awareness posters and related program activitys..

  7. Vikas Hooda

    I am speechless on ur efforts , thnku so much fr making life easier . This is best platform in terms of output ratio . Invest little time and get maximum learnings . Superb comparison chart and I hope many more are coming in near future . A small suggestion for this post in particular if could place these dances on a political map of India, it would be ice on the cake to memrise these dance form .

  8. shweta mishra

    do you have environment mind map…..meaning all the national parks, sanctuaries, reserved forest, all international binding and non binding treaties, protocols, conventions, agreements?

  9. Sahil Lohra

    Great content. The best strategy for a beginner would be to go through the mindmaps offered by iasexpress for the overview of concepts and build up on it as a base with additional reading. Their content makes it easy to retain information with the structured presentation. 10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend.

  10. Good attempt. Better track a record of SC shaping Law pertaining to Reservation in higher education u/15 (4).
    Progress be compartmentalize in SC judgements in a slot of every 20 years. Give readers citations only. From Champkam Dorairajan till latest.
    However, appreciate your excellent narration.

          Currently I am following only insights daily current affairs and the hindu editorial.But it takes a lot of time to read daily current affairs and editorial and after reading them making their notes.I have just visited your website and found it very unique and interesting in the way you have provided mind maps and some articles.And also the way you’ve described the three pillars on how to retain any information for long time is quite interesting and I found it very useful.I am also preparing for civils since june 2019 and want to appear in next year prelim’s.It will be my first attempt and I want to qualify it but I am very confused with time management as my 3 to 3.5 hours goes only to reading and making notes of daily CA from insights as it provides CA from the hindu,the IE,sometimes from down to earth and pib.I just want to reduce my time for current content by maximum 2 hours.Can you suggest me regarding this matter?

          • Santhosh Kumar

            Hi. Thanks for your reply.
            1) I have launched the Prelims CA mindmap initiative on Jan 1, 2020, after several requests by members and you. You can access it from this page itself. You don’t need to read any other source. We refer from – Hindu, Indian Express, Live Mint, India Today, PIB, Downtoearth, etc. to cover all prelims related news. You can read/revise all topics in a very short time with these mindmaps.
            2) For mains – refer IE Articles along with your own reading of daily editorials in newspapers.
            Following the above strategy would radically boost your confidence as well as marks in prelims and mains exam.
            Disclaimer: This reply is updated on Jan 6, 2020.

  11. Yogesh

    Mindmaps are so good. it saves lot of time specially for senior aspirants. It helps to recall everything faster in mains exam. very much helpful for mains. Thanks and all the best.

  12. Randhir Chauhan

    Sir please start mind map for current issues in comprehensive manner as soon as possible. It will be very usefull for us.
    Thank you sir for doing great job for us at such nominal cost.

  13. Ingrid Franswah

    No land is owned by anyone in this world. The word of God says “The earth is the Lord’s and fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell in it
    He has founded it upon seas and established it upon the floods.
    He has given the land of Israel to them and no one can take it from them unless He permits it. All of us should learn to speak the Truth as it is and not fabricate stories. The Bible has every information and it has never changed even with translation issues.
    So when it comes to Israel refer the Bible to get your facts right. Thanks

    • Abdul Razak K K

      But we have to consider a crowd citizens of Palestine who living there continously before centuries ago. And Israel founded under a religious concept only and encroached upon a peaceful nation to fullfil their dream through riots, violence and massacre. How a religion based bloody constitution?

  14. Aysha's

    Quarrying cannot be performed in wetland areas. Instead, the lands were reclaimed and came to be used as lands for construction. They are floodplains.
    The authorities made a mistake by releasing water from dams after waiting for them to get filled up instead of releasing them earlier which would have not caused much damage.
    Kindly do not spread wrong information. Please do the needful changes.

  15. Jitesh Sahu

    IASexpress has made preparations much easier. I’m scoring good marks in static mocks. The mains section is absolutely amazing. Many indirect questions came in this mains 2019 from your mainswise section topics. YOUR MINDMAPS saves a lot of time + it has helped me to make notes in a very precise manner. Tysm Santhosh Sir.

  16. Ravi

    is static portion are only in mind map or in brief like current articles (mind map+ brief ).
    I have read article on sardar Patel in Nov18 magazine it is very good .in history portion have u covered every personality with different dimensions like sardar Patel .

    • Santhosh Kumar

      I’ve given the referred sources for the static subjects = no brief is necessary. You can refer those sources if you want.

      I’m planning to make a static mindmap covering all the historical personalities with different dimensions.

  17. harshal pawade

    Not just for upsc aspirants but any individual in a society who want to keep their socioeconomic awareness level at par should subscribe for this initiative ..Thank u again to founder for this conscience connecting platform

  18. Sachin Singh

    1-After joining the course, Is there any need to read NCERT+STANDARD BOOK or directly go through your content and study?
    2- Before using mind map ,is any need to read theory of any topic or directly jump on mind map and start study?

    • Santhosh Kumar

      1. If you have more time, you can read NCERT/std books and then read the mindmaps for concept clarity. If you have less time or you just to need to read/revise quicker, you can read only IE Mindmaps.
      2. You can directly start reading the mindmaps. No need for theories.
      All the best for your exams.

    • Santhosh Kumar

      Please read that line again. It says, that this issue “diverts attention from” electoral reforms such as Criminalization of politics and inner party democracy. We didn’t mention “lead to”. Hope I clarified your doubt.

  19. All this hue and cry on safety aspect is meaningless ,because the Main Reason for Accidents to happen is wrong judgement of individual drivers of any and every vehicle when he needs to OVERTAKE any or one vehicle in front of him,and does not have exact and at the nick of time the precise information of CHANGE OF MOVEMENT STATUS from speed to slowing down and finally braking.
    I hereby challenge ENTIRE WORLD that nobody has the foolproof “ACCIPREVENT SYSTEM ” installed as safety gadget ,which is the mandatory requirement just like that of FLASHER INDICATERS for turning safety of each vehicle

    Dear sir.. just now I come across this website. you are awesome. I like to become platinum plus member. If I do, can I take print out or can you provide PDF ( ( A4 / A3 )? Because I am unable to effectively read online. kindly reply me. thank u.

  21. Sudesh jha

    You need to cover other GS areas of UPSC exam such as Internal security. I could not find enough coverage. Secondly the facility for downloading articles should be made available for members. You can not compel the customers to download the app.

    • Santhosh Kumar

      Hi. Thanks for the feedback.
      1) We are trying to cover internal security issues comprehensively through current articles itself – . Please refer it. It is more than enough. More articles on internal security are coming soon.
      2) Articles can be downloaded by silver, gold, platinum & platinum plus members.
      3) We are not compelling you to download the app. We are just suggesting. Because the app provides features like no URL tab (fullscreen), in-built notification, etc.

    • Santhosh Kumar

      Gold, platinum and platinum plus members can download past and future current affairs PDF magazines until Membership expiry.
      Only Platinum plus members can download past and future static HTML mindmaps until membership expiry.

  22. mm madam

    Respected Ias express team,

    The initiative is extremely helpful for my preparation and I like the way I can connect with the subject with the help of these initiatives…..

    I would like to request you for an update .. I.e., the examples and important Supreme Court verdicts are missing in polity that is for articles related to fundamental rights in the constitution, please look into the request and I hope ur favour ,,,

    Thank you ?

  23. Nithya

    Thank you so much for your help. This has helped me a lot in my studies. This is the first time I am using this IE mind map and I found it very interesting and educative. I recommend others also to try this as it will surely be helpful to you as it was to me.

  24. Sunitha Nishangi

    Iam very comfortable with the topics but the only problem is I have to take print out of each mindmap. But iam not able to do as the mind maps are very big. What is the solution for this. Writing notes by seeing each mind map is very time consuming. Please suggest me the best way for this

  25. A CE

    Thank you for such wonderful effort… But Sir can you provide compilations of news by subject wise because in this way will take long time , like we cannot go 11 magazines at the last moment . Please provide compilation for revision on current affairs

      • A CE

        I am talking about compilation of current affairs for prelims purposes as Vision 365 PT and Ias parliament available in market , because we usually don’t have time in last days before prelims to go through all 11 magazines … It would be better if you compile whole news from may to feb under different subject s like polity , environment etc …it will help a lot for revision at last moment in case of prelims

        • Santhosh Kumar

          I understand. But the notes are compiled under respective subjects like economy, environment, etc in each monthly mindmap itself. Besides, we also provide compilations like indexes, personalities, bills/acts, policies, international organisations, etc in the monthly mindmap itself. So I think it is more than enough and making another subject-wise compilation is not necessary.
          Unlike vision & IP (PDF), IE provides the notes in an interactive mindmap format with super-categorisation and compilations that give you quick revision.
          Also, certain topics in different subjects are interlinked with hyperlinks. For example, a topic in the environment would have been linked to science and technology. But separating subjects would remove these hyperlinks and you won’t get interrelationships.
          If you want to read the economy subject only, then open June mindmap and read economy, after that, open July mindmap and read economy, etc. That’s it.
          The concept of mindmap itself a solution for the quick revision problem.
          I hope you’d understand.
          Thanks for the feedback.

          • Santhosh Kumar

            We tried our best to cover everything relevant for prelims. But UPSC is unpredictable = we cannot surely tell you can completely depend on this material. Compare our mindmaps with other materials in the market and see the advantages and use it at your own risk.

  27. Shubham

    Mind maps are really helpful to retain content for longer time and to compare or relate topics with each other. Thanks for this immensely helpful work.😊 And plz add a extra feature to add our notes in mind maps…so we can value addition them with current affairs (as psir is current affairs orriented subject) and test series solutions. Thank u.😊

    • Santhosh Kumar

      With offline mindmaps, you can take a printout/save PDF by clicking Menu=>Print at the bottom of the mindmap. If the mindmap is small, click expand all and then take printout. If the mindmap is huge, select a topic that you want to take printout >> Click Focus >> Take printout. Only platinum plus members can download all offline content.

    • Santhosh Kumar

  29. Bharath M

    Please modify Mizoram in place of Meghalaya.

    ‘The sixth schedule contains similar protection for the tribal population of the states of Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Meghalaya.’

  30. naveen

    Love it and the effort put in shows but I have 3 requests.
    1.Add more pictures to the mind map because something visual can be memorized quicker and will not be monotonous to study.
    2.Some points in the mind map are very vague so we can’t under the logic or the context so please elaborate on that like some note attached to mind map or something.
    3.please add a feature or editable file where I can add some points as the mind map might lack my points or I can remove some points so as to make them more crisp.
    Again thank you for your efforts.

    Tenure of judges of SC and HC are subject to upper age limit only (65y and 62y respectively); there is no other condition. The six year-limit is valid for only CEC/EC and CAG.
    Evidence: The present CJI, S.A. Bobde, has been a SC judge since April 2013, which is more than 6 years. His retirement is due in April 2021, thus bringing his total tenure to 8 years.
    Please correct me if I am mistaken.
    Thank you.
