Competition Success Review, or CSR for short, is India’s premier general knowledge magazine. Our magazine is hugely popular across India, particularly with students who wish to appear for competitive entrance exams (Civil Service, MBA and others). Its content includes general knowledge trivia with a focus on Indian current events, Interview with IAS toppers, Interview and GD tips and sample question papers for different competitive examinations.
CSR was established in 1964 by Mr. S. K. Sachdeva who is also the Managing Director. Its popularity is validated by many sources – as per Audit Bureau of Circulation figures CSR is India’s Largest Selling Magazine in English Among all Fortnightlies & Monthlies (January- June 2007).
