Daily Important Articles is an Initiative by JV’s IAS to provide insights into the Must Read Articles of The Day from Newspaper like The Hindu, Indian Express, and Live Mint (source of every article is mentioned at the end of the respective articles). Often it is seen that new aspirants do not know what to read from these newspapers considering the relevance with UPSC. Our initiative helps beginners and even veterans to identify the right kind of news that is to be done from the Newspaper and how it is to be covered. Many aspirants belong to remote areas, where the availability of Newspapers in the English medium, especially The Hindu may not be there. This initiative will serve as a one-stop solution for their newspaper reading needs.
