INSTA REVISION PLAN 2.0

Welcome to our INSTA Revision Plan 2.0 to give wings to your Preparation for the UPSC Civil Services Preliminary  cum Mains Examination – 2020.

The following InstaTest is part of the detailed Insta Plan 2.0 which we have given you (CLICK HERE) recently.  Read and internalise the plan before you start giving these tests. If you are already very well prepared, you can give these tests as stand-alone tests for extra practice. 

The Insta 75 Days Plan received huge response from all of you. Questions were appreciated. In the Insta 2.0, we are further ensuring that questions are of high quality and are intended to help you eventually ace in the actual preliminary exam 2020. The first plan ensured that those who stuck with the plan improved their scores drastically over the 70+ days period. Now you have 100+ days to further improve not only Prelims scores, but also get better at writing answers and essays before Prelims-2020. All that matters is your consistency.

Post your comments, queries, scores, feedback or suggestions in the comments section. Explode(i.e. bring positivity) this platform with your participation. 

 

 

 

Wish you Good Luck! 🙂

Post your INSTA Revision Test score as well as your answers for the below Mains Questions in the Comments section for review.

Static question:


Movements against the illegal migrants have hampered the regional development of North East India in general and state of Assam in particular. Critically discuss. (250 words)

 

Ethics question :


A Public Information Officer has received an application under RTI Act. Having gathered the information, the PIO discovers that the information pertains to some of the decisions taken by him, which were found to be not altogether right. There were other employees also who party to these decisions were. Disclosure of the information is likely to lead to disciplinary action with possibility of punishment against him as well as some of his colleagues. Non-disclosure or part disclosure or camouflaged disclosure of information will result into lesser punishment or no punishment.

 

The PIO is otherwise an honest and conscientious person but this particular decision, on which the RTI application has been filed, turned out to be wrong. He comes to you for advice.

The following are some suggested options. Please evaluate the merits and demerits of each of the options:

The PIO could refer the matter to his superior officer and seek his advice and act strictly in accordance with the advice, even though he is not completely in agreement with the advice of the superior.
The PIO could proceed on leave and leave the matter to be dealt by his successor in office or request for transfer of the application to another PIO.
The PIO could weigh the consequences of disclosing the information truthfully, including the effect on his career, and reply in a manner that would not place him or his career in jeopardy, but at the same time a little compromise can be made on the contents of the information.
The PIO could consult his other colleagues who are party to the decision and take action as per their advice.
Also please indicate (without necessarily restricting to the above options) what you would like to advise, giving proper reasons. (20 marks| 250 words)
