What is the difference between Old NCERT and New NCERT?

Old NCERT Books PDF are much better than New NCERTs because Old Ncerts cover the topics deeply and more analysis is provided, and that helps us in understanding better. New NCERTs cover the subject superficialy and lack the depth and to cover Civil Service Exam one needs depth.

Old ones are text heavy based. So, the coverage of the topics is little bit higher than new ones. First of all, understand that ncert books are not made for you, me or any upsc aspirants. It’s for school students who will find old books boring. Therefore they introduced new ncerts with lot of visuals such as graphs, illustrations, and tables to help the school kids to understand the topics easily.

Old books focus much on facts and figures i.e. to the point answers (for one word questions) whereas new ncerts follow NCF curriculum i.e. concept build up , they focus on subjective approach and long drawn explanations.

Old History NCERTs were written by famous authors like Bipin Chandra. They contained more facts and greater detail than New NCERTs.

New NCERTs saw diluted content and emphasized more on pictures and illustrations than detailed explanation.

Which is better Old Ncert or New Ncert books for IAS prep?

UPSC is undoubtedly one of the toughest examinations. To make it through, one requires a lot of knowledge. This indeed comes from a number of books. The most basic and essential books are NCERTs.

Old Ncerts are considered best to make a strong base in subjects important for UPSC. They are detailed and gave a deep insight on every topic. Building is strong only when its foundation is damn strong.

You can read both old and new books. Because old NCERTs are more factual and detailed. But new NCERTs are more thematic and simple. Analyzing last few years UPSC questions, one need both factual and thematic understanding of subjects. it will be ideal if you read old NCERTs first and then go for new books.

Our Mission:

When I was a Civil Service Aspirant, I looked for old NCERTS everywhere but couldn’t find them. So I decided to upload them myself, so that it may benefit a lot of other aspirants.
