Current Affairs 2023: Questions related to contemporary issues and events are compulsorily asked in UPSC Civil Services Examination and State Level PCS Examinations (Preliminary and Main Examination) of various states. The CSAT Paper 1 of UPSC Prelims is based on General Knowledge. There are many topics under General Knowledge in Paper-1, in which the first topic is of current affairs or current events. This is the reason why all the candidates who are successful in civil services advise the candidates preparing for competitive examinations to read any one national newspaper. But sorting out the contemporary events of your work in the newspaper and making notes of those topics is also a very conscious task. Generally, this task is easy for students who have been preparing for many years or for students who read newspapers regularly, but it is a bit difficult for new candidates who are trying to make a career in civil services.
Keeping this difficulty of the candidates in mind, here we are trying to summarize the issues of national and international importance published in today’s newspaper by filtering them so that there can be some ease in your preparation.
