I am Rushikesh Singareddy. I cleared UPSC CSE-2019 with an AIR-95. This was my 5th attempt. I cleared the exam earlier in my 3rd attempt (AIR-374, CSE-2017). I am presently in Indian Railway Traffic Service (IRTS). I have benefited from the notes of the toppers previously uploaded on this portal and elsewhere and I feel it is my turn to help aspirants in any way I could. I am attaching all my mains notes (all 4 papers) below.
The notes are the work of 5 years of my preparation. I constantly updated and modified them to better cover all the topics in the syllabus. Some of them are long because I tried to make them very extensive and I covered them from multiple sources so as to cover different dimensions. They mostly cover the entire static portion of all the 4-GS papers and also contain some current events of the past 1-2 years. I have classified them in multiple sub-heads according to the syllabus.
Anything I used to read from any source material was updated into these notes, so that I don’t have to revise the source material again. This was very convenient for revision in the end. I used to only revise these notes a month before the mains examination. I feel they can be very helpful to the aspirants, especially to the beginners. I have converted my notes from Evernote into these pdfs. So, please use them in whatever way it benefits you.
Thank you all.
Feel free to reach me for any further help
