Abstract: Listening, speaking, reading and writing (LSRW) are the four basic skills in developing  a language. This paper emphasizes on efficient reading.  Reading and comprehension go hand in hand. Some effective techniques to improve reading have been  suggested  for the  students  appearing  for  competitive exams. Myths like, reading slowly helps to understand better and loud reading is better to comprehend a text have been proved  wrong. Reading is  an action of brain, not eyes and vocal  organs. Eyes are only the input device. But whatever the technique may be, nothing can match the habit of reading at an early stage of schooling. Reading  speed can be  developed  by  understanding   and applying reading techniques  like skimming, scanning, mind mapping, visualizing etc.  Teachers and parents should give much importance to reading skill while teaching children as it not only provides children with vast knowledge but also greatly improves  their writing skill.
