Description

Geography Of India is a factual, informative and academic book that covers all the aspects of the geography of the Indian subcontinent.

Summary Of The Book

Providing in-depth information on the various concepts and aspects pertaining to Indian geography, Geography Of India is a very helpful guide for students, research scholars, civil services aspirants and academicians.

The book commences with a chapter on the basic structure of India. Thereafter, it provides exhaustive information on its physiography, the climate, its energy resources, and drainage. Topics like Spatial Organisation of Agriculture, Regional Development and Planning and Transport, Communications, and Trade are also discusses in detail.

With assured brevity and accuracy of the text, Geography Of India provides numerous case studies for environmental degradation, agriculture, biodiversity conservation and transportation in India. Updated and reinforced data on India’s forests, its national parks and biosphere reserves and wetlands is also given. New and revised maps highlighting the hazard zones and parts of the Indian ocean prone to pirate attacks have also been provided. The new maps in the book include India Sex Ratio, West­ern Ghats, and Major Nat­u­ral Haz­ards in India.

Geography Of India can be useful for students preparing for the Civil Services exam, as 50 percent of the marks in the geography optional paper is related to Indian Geography.

Recommended for Civils

A good book covering all the topics for Geography in General Studies (Mains). Given the proposed changes in Mains, this book becomes a must have for all aspirants. Plus can be complemented with other good books on General Geography and world considering the anticipated pattern/syllabus change in mind.

Good book for CSE Prelims and other competitive examinations

The best way to use this book is to have NCERT in parallel along with this book while preparing. Now the next edition is available in market, but the only difference between the present and the 5th edition is that, the 5th edition has chapter wise objective question paper which the 4th edition (this edition) lacks. The drawback with this book is that it has many errors in it, which is not revised even in the 5th edition. The errors are with facts and spellings and not with concepts. For examp...
