List of First in India- SSC CGL/SSC CHSL


General Awareness is one such section that plays a significant role in increasing the score in any competitive examination. If you go through any SSC or Railways examination question paper, you will notice that the General Awareness section generally consists of three sections i.e. Static G.K and Current Affairs out of which the majority of marks holds by the Static G.K section followed by Current Affairs. In today’s blog post I am providing a list of First in India which is one of the frequently asked topics in the General Awareness section.

This topic is useful for those who are preparing for SSC and Railways examinations because questions from this topic are frequently asked in SSC, Railways and state level government exams.  You can expect questions of 1 to 2 marks form this. Therefore, make sure you note down the list properly in your notebook. As you know that revision is the key, hence, do not forget to revise it on a weekly basis in order to gain a grip over this topic. Following is the list of First happened in India.
