  1. How to subscribe to Yojana, Kurukshetra, Chronicle, Wizard For success in UPSC civil service IAS IPS exam, it Is necessary to refer to certain magazines. Many friends have difficulties in finding out how to subscribe to them. So I’m posting the subscription address , price etc Magazines by Govt. Yojana (for Govt. schemes / policies on poverty removal, energy, education etc) Kurukshetra (for rural Development , women,SC/ST empowerment – must for those with Public Administration optional) How to subscribe? you've to send Money order (100/- per year for each magazine) to following address Business Manager, Publication Division , Ministry of I&B, East block-IV level -VII R.K.Puram, New Delhi - 11003 in the MO, specify your address and which magazine you want to subscribe along with the language in which you want to read it. e.g. Yojana (English) etc. they've got a website but like all Govt. website- it lacks any customer support lol here it is once your money reaches there, it'll automatically start coming with in 15 days. Both of these magazines are not available generally in regular bookstore / market except in government run libraries, Hence its essential that you subscribe to them. Because they’re important from Essay + Mains General studies (and Public Administration) point of view. Competitive magazines for civil service exam. There are many, like Chronicle , Wizard, Civil Service Times, Pratiyogita Darpan, Competition success review etc. Here I post the methods to subscribe to two of them. You don’t have to buy all of them, just keep one and stick with it. Civil Service Chronicle. same procedure as above but MO of 550 /- for 1 year. do specify- which medium. because they too run in both Hindi/ English address Chronicle Publication Pvt Ltd. A-26, Sector 2 Noida (UP)-201301 phone-0120-2440265-66 once they get your money, they'll mail you the invoice via post and then start sending the magazines. generally it comes on 17th of Each month. they've got a website too, but haven't updated it since 2006, so not mentioning it. they also offer to send you magazine via courier if you’re living in a big city / State capital (but you’ll have to pay Rs.100/- for it) BUT its not required as even in the normal post – it comes regularly. Competition Wizard Its subscription procedure is a little cumbersome, since they don’t accept Money order but only DD (Demand Drafts) For 1 years individual subscription you’ve to send them DD of Rs. 400/- So actually its costlier than 400 Rs : count the 30 Rs. Of DD charged by Bank+ Postal Stamp on envelope. Favoring ‘Competition Wizard’, payable @ Delhi. Address Competition Wizard, B-19, ALS House, Dr. Mukherjee Nagar, Delhi-110009. Ph- 27653714 I think Wizard comes only in English medium. To Subscribe or to Buy from bookstand? Advantage of Subscribing 1. Bookstand price of these magazines are mostly 50 – 60 Rs. (depending on whether it’s a Prelim Special issue or not.), so for 1 year it’d be about 50% more the amount than subscription price. So you’re saving lot money by subscribing. 2. You don’t have to waste time in going to Bookstand every month. = more money saved in petrol lol, environment is saved from pollution, global warming, climate change, .. you can write an essay on it. Advantage of buying from Bookstand 1. You’ve choice, because if you subscribe then you’ve to stick with one and same magazine, for the year, despite its fluctuating quality. But when you are buying from bookstand , you can chose the best for that month. E.g. some months Chronicle makes better issue, and some months Wizard published better issue. related previous articles.
