Overall Outdated

I don't know whether editing happens before reprint. Latest updates in History, Geography, polity are missing. Generally I bought this book for some additional information because it states 2014, but it lacked 10 year old updates.
Example in polity Citizenship amendment of 2005 is not there. Someone who is not aware of this will think Citizenship Act was amended only 3 times.
Questions are good only in few places overall not UPSC standard.

I wonder, it has just few lines on each topic across subjects ? For God sake, This is for Civil Services Exam and not KG level !!!! This is not at all recommended book for UPSC Exams at all.
