  • My economy lectures for UPSC-2015 batch have started at SPIPA, Ahmedabad (run by Government of Gujarat.)
  • I’ve requested them to record all of my lectures for this batch, so it can benefit aspirants at other places, through youtube.
  • Although unlike Salman khan neither they nor I can make any “commitments” because of the technical glitches in a typical sarkari IT-setup.
  • Anyways, First lecture was done on 16th January 2015, and uploaded. Total ~2:00 hours but I’ve split it into four parts. Click me to watch them
  • PowerPoint of the lecture, available at files.secureserver.net/0fxNJqSZOKiE4I
  • Medium of instruction- Hindi.
  • English version not possible for the moment, because I’m required to teach at this batch, in Hindi/Gujarati only. Besides, same content is available in English-text articles and English PPTs on the site.

  1. sir waiting for more videos on economy..they are very helpful and you really explain it very well.

  2. Dear sir

    ek doubt hai.crr aur slr direct instrument e aane chahiye kyunki inko regulate karne se bank ke paas lonable amount directly kam jyada ho jaata hai to profit cover karne ke liye ye rate usi hisab se adjust kar denge.isliye direct instrument hona chahiye.maine ek book me ise direct instrument ke andar padha hai.
