    A living document

    A book which is being printed since 1965, and is being continously revised and reviewed to make upto this in hand 69th edition needs no words of praised to lure any serious reader.
    I bought this book for preparation of service commissions, and found it really usefull. But yes, don't expect it to teach you basics of economics. For those better look toward ncert. But for the width and depth of its coverage I can comfortably recommend this book for other aspirants.

    Can you finish reading it?

    The real problem with this book is that it needs a gigantic memory to fit in all those information that are nicely compiled, updated, written, and presented here. It is the best book for reference works. I would rather suggest that use a different text book for UPSC to develop ideas regarding the basic turning points of Indian economy and then go check the accuracy of your understanding and knowledge against this one.

    Read, Weigh, Learn

    This is, I believe, one of the best publications of SChand. It's a most absorbing book but at the same time you would want to read more of it every time you open it. A word of caution: those who are noobs to hardcore Economics must get their concepts clear first because otherwise this book would WEIGH more than you can carry.

    Ciao for now.

    This book is too informative

    This is too lengthy. If you are planning to finish this in couple of months time frame, you are gonna bust your brains out with the excessive and extensive information this book contains.

    This is a lovely book when you wanna know and understand for anything that is related to Indian economics.

    Best part of the book is its analytical approach towards everything. You have got stats for like everything. If you wanna nail any eco exam, read this book for an year like a bible.

    Good read for basics and fundamental revisions

    its a well written book and can engage even those who have had no formal background in economics as such, recommended highly for RBI grade B and UPSC preparations. If you are conversant with economics and fundamentals are good, then I would recommend to consider Uma Kapila.

    Good to have book

    I purchased the book for RBI Officer recruitment. It contains a lot of matter which I feel is not suitable for competitive exams point of view. The book as the title suggests talks more of Indian economy along with few chapters on transnational bodies like IMF, WTO etc.

    Again, a good to have book. Don't buy for competitions as the topics are lengthy.
