Take any of book like Lucent or Manorama( or anythings which compiles all GK ), But do not petrify yourself by looking over its length . just selection of qualitative topics is required.

Current GK : – I can say this is mammoth task , But still past 6-7 months current events will be suffice .You can take following sources [But remember use only one otherwise their length might give you an attack ].

(I) If you are a Time student , I found magazines distributed by them really good and short as well ,so have a Jugaad of it.

(II) If you are a CL student ,Daily solve 40 questions of Gyan Dhara daily ,So your one month will be covered in two days .

(III)You can use Pratiyogita Darpan ,But its length is too vast ,so be selective about filtering of info.

(IV) Be regular on pagalguy thread , It will update you about multitude of info which you can not get anywhere else.

(V) Be honest with if you have some other material.

So this was from my side ,this may be helpful to some extent.If I found something else I will write its third part or you can also provide your inputs in respective GK threads .This will also cover other entrance GK .So Puys start GK and nail IIFT .Because the best is yet to be .Good-luck for all future exams.Link for part-1 :-
