Must Read Current Affairs Articles I 15th Feb. 2021

Good Morning dear reader

We are posting Today’s Must Read Current Affairs Articles below:

About Must Read News Articles for UPSC: Must Read News Articles is an initiative by Team ForumIAS to provide links to the most important news articles of the day. It covers several newspapers such as The Hindu, Indian Express, Livemint, etc. This saves the time and effort of students in identifying useful and important articles. With newspaper websites requiring a paid subscription beyond a certain number of fixed articles, we believe that it is one of the best ways to cover all major newspapers in the shortest amount of time.
