Reviews on Facebook
“Awesome magazine! I miss the old Popular Electronics and Radio Electronics magazines. You combined both aspects and enhanced it. I buy the ezine issues because the paper issues are too expensive because of the distance. I bought a 2 year subscription to ezine and am going to purchase another 2 years soon.” – Steve Griffith
“It’s great. Even though I am living on the other side of the world (Netherlands), there are many helpful and interesting things you can find here. Keep up the good work.” – Meindert Meinsma
“I still remember my first EFY; bought it for two rupees. I still get the magazine every month (well, I have subscribed to online version few months back). For whatever I am doing today (and I am doing a lot), the credit goes to EFY and Chopra Sir.” – Vinay Chaddha

About Electronics For You
The EFY Group’s first magazine, Electronics For You, was launched in January 1969, when the Indian electronics industry was still at a nascent stage. Today, it has grown into South Asia’s most popular electronics magazine. In fact, ‘EFY’ has been coined from the abbreviation of this magazine’s title.
The magazine’s goal is to keep the electronics fraternity updated with the latest technical information. It also keeps hobbyists busy with the circuit ideas, construction projects and DIY tips and techniques which the magazine carries month after month. And it helps end users decide, through its Buyers’ Guides, which electronic products to buy when they go out shopping. The CD that accompanies each EFY Plus version of the magazine carries a host of useful software and games.
