Science and Technology Current Affairs

If you are preparing for different examinations mostly you will be having General Awareness paper and in that section you will confront science part. This part contains two broad categories one is static and another is Science and Technology Current Affairs.

For first part you need to study books (mostly NCERTs) you can download them here and for second part that is Science and Technology Current Affairs and for that you should be following daily newspaper.

To solve that problem we have come up with this series of Science and Technology Current Affairs which will be released part wise. This is PART-1
