A word on the question.

We all have to study Economic Survey.
But can you share what all reports you've studied and found of importance and made part of our preparation.

    For ARC you need to find out important issues ( usually ones for which recommendations are given) that happened , note down their cause and remedies and think of your own remedy if possible.

    When you read the reports you will find many wise sutras( condensed statements packed with knowledge) and examples .If possible incorporate those in your answers.
