Personally I have never read any magazine for covering GA portion while preparing for bank exams at my time, But I would suggest you to read any one English newspaper preferably The Hindu on daily basis so that you can easily cover your GA portion and it will make your english better. But you need to do selective reading of Hindu newapaper. Though its my personal opinion,that what i used to do, However you may follow the way you like. :) Hope you got your answer :) and stay tuned as there are lots of thing I am going to add through my other courses very soon.. :)

  2. WHAT IS PLASTIC??? The term "Plastics" includes materials composed of various elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine and sulphur Plastics are macromolecules, formed by polymerization and having the ability to be shaped by application of reasonable amount of heat and pressure or another form of forces. . Plastics, depending on their physical properties, may be classified as thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic materials.

  4. Economic growth and changing consumption and production patterns are resulting into rapid increase waste plastics in the world Even the cities with low economic growth have started producing more plastic waste due to: .plastic packaging, . plastic shopping bags, PET bottles . and other goods/appliances using plastic as the major component


  5. 20 more plastic is produced today than 50 years ago. The world's annual consumption of plastic materials has increased from around 5 million tonnes in the 1950s to nearly 100 million tonnes. This implies that on: More resources are being used to meet the increased demand of plastic, and more plastic waste is being generated Due to lack of integrated solid waste management (ISWM), most of the plastic waste is neither collected properly nor disposed of in appropriate manner to avoid its negative impacts on environment and public health

The waste quantities increased from 46 million tones in 2001 to 65 million tones in 2010. it has been estimated that per capita per day production will increase to 0.7 kg in 2050 The carac of waste depends on various factors such as food habits, traditions, lifestyle, climate...
