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

Static question:

1. Discuss the reasons behind the decadence of the Swadeshi movement even though it deployed the entire gamut of Gandhian techniques. (250 words)


2. “Legislative Councils in India had no real official power till 1920. Yet, work done in them by the nationalists helped the growth of the national movement.” Examine. (250 words)


Ethics question :

1. You are the Chief Secretary of a State. Your own sibling is a MLA from ruling party. You are final authority to declare best governed district ranking. Your brother nudges you to declare his district as best governed though it comes at third place in the real ranking. The Minister of Finance, whose constituency is co-located in the same district, also starts to pressurize you to do the same. The party has high prospects to come back to power and you are informed that the Chief Minister is interested in extending your Chief Secretary assignment by another 2 years beyond retirement, if you do such favors.

What will be your response? Justify it. (20M)


2. Your nation is stuck with a pandemic and it is worst hit in the world. A critical supply needed to save the victims is oxygen cylinders which are in dire shortage across the country. The production capacity is fully utilized, yet the demand is not met even by half. You are the Commerce Secretary. An otherwise metal refining company approaches your Minister and persuades that their company has capacity to produce oxygen which can meet 6% of the overall demand. In return, the company seeks preferential allotment of public procurement of steel to that company by compromising auction rules. If such favor is not done, the company management clearly states it will not produce oxygen.

The Minister asks you to pursue different options in this case. What are they? Examine them critically. (20M)
