Hi Pulkit, I have very specific queries regarding NCERTs, could I mail you the same?
Roman says, prepare your own notes, it could not be better then anything else (which is completely understandable), and Pulkit says, follow Vision IAS notes. But, many would not be able to afford them. And, also the very cause of this online study centre would be taken down.
