For many Competitive Exam aspirants finding a reliable source of Current Affairs is a challenge in itself. This challenge gets further compounded because the information available at different platforms is rarely lucid and easy to memorize. In such a scenario, cracking the General Awareness section of a Bank PO / Clerk or SSC exam may seem tough.

Keeping this into consideration, we at Vidya Guru, the Institute for Best IBPS Coaching in Delhi keep uploading excellent Current Affairs Video Lectures on our Youtube Channel. Apart from it, we release regular GK updates containing expected exam questions. Given below is the first update for the month of July this year.
