About Us

Competition Success Review (CSR) started with a mission to help the Youth of India to succeed in all competitive spheres irrespective of their economic background. It is a monthly publication in India aimed primarily at students preparing for Civil service, MBA and other competitive exams and was first published in 1964 as a pull-out supplement.

In a highly competitive world, CSR provides the means to make the ordinary youth an extraordinary person. We try to ignite the spark in ambitious minds. That the youth in the country, regular and committed subscribers to CSR since their schooldays, excel in different walks of life, testify to the fact that they owe a lot to the guidance provided by CSR. It makes us feel proud. It motivates us to strive harder for our readers. At CSR, we are committed to providing the best for the leaders of tomorrow.

CSR focuses on Current Affairs and News on National and International issues, along with supplements on courses like MBA. Today CSR is a leading educational magazine. The National Readership Survey suggests that the CSR’s average yearly readership is more than 1 million.
