The Economic Times current affairs are here for the economic part or section of the all general competitive exams. Change is necessary according to time. From last two or three weeks , we realized that current affairs contained in The Hindu are easily available so we decide to provide something more useful. We choose Economic section because all exams specially IBPS contains questions from this section.

From now we will provide Weekly The Economic Times that will be very useful for economic section. If you have any suggestion regarding any improvement about this weekly, please share with us. We will definitely work on this asap.
