    1. अंकित भारतीय श्रीवास्तव

      Through what you are trying to download..
      ..i mean through PC/laptop or through mobile..
      If you are going on PC,
      Download ‘Free you tube downloader’ from DVDvideosoft..
      If on android mobile, download tubemate downloader from tubemate.net only..
      Simply download it and you will get on it through their self-instructor..

      1. shivu

        I am downloding using laptop oly.wen I play that downloaded videos oly audio is coming no video.even I played it with vlc,mvk,km and media player also same problem.

        1. Praveen_R

          If you are using ‘Youtube Music downloader’, there are two radio buttons, 1. MP3 2. Video, I think MP3 might be selected by default.

    2. ashish

      First go to you tube where all mrunal Sir videos are there.open new tab Just type cc converter in your browser.you will get clip converter.it will ask url in very first line .paste your you tube url over there, and select as MP4 and start downloading any kind of videos. .
      Hope it would be helpful

    3. Mohammad Shahid

      replace ‘youtube’ in the url of video by ‘ssyoutube’ and you will be able to download video from youtube itself without requiring any additional software or visiting any additional website.

  2. T

  6. Tandroid

    Mrunal sir,

    are your videos covering all topics under economics? As in, if I watch all the videos, I do not have to go through the articles posted by you in the economics section? Is my understanding correct?

    Please respond.

  7. Hrishi

    Hello, I have some queries, would be grateful if anybody could help.

    1. Are the PSL interest rates also de-regulated or are they decided by RBI ? Can interest of PSL be below base rate ?
    2. Which areas the interest rates are still not deregulated ?

    1. Rahul

      Hi Rishi,

      De-regulation means something which is not under the control of Government. All rates are related/adjusted in accordance with the base rate. Base rate is decided by RBI.
      Banks are not permitted to any lending below Base Rate (even if it PSL).
