Five Thing You Must Know @ UPSC CSE Mains

Friends,

UPSC doesn't really want us to become a specialist on any subject related to GS, isn't it? Why waste tons of our precious hours on cramming umpteen number of points on a particular topic? All we need is 5 solid points (mutually exclusive and from different dimensions) of any issue. If we could elaborate well on those 5 points in the mains examination, along with a general introduction and conclusion, and some innovative points devised by us (aha!), that should be good enough. So, feel free to post 5 of your best points on choice of your topic!

Regards,
Amit

  • Topic 1: UBI (Universal Basic Income)

    1) Definition: Form of Social Security in which all citizens of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money from government, in addition to any income received or earned from elsewhere

    2) Purpose: Promoting social justice, reducing poverty, unconditional cash transfer that lets the beneficiary decide how to use the amount and employment generation by promoting labour flexibility

    3) It aims to bring in administrative efficiency through JAM platform

    4) Existing welfare schemes riddled with mis-allocation, linkages and exclusion of the poor

    5) It may help to achieve considerable gains in terms of bureaucratic costs and time by replacing many of schemes

    When upsc asks political, legal, social, geographical, historical, cultural, economic reasons for a particular topic, that means you need to study everything and not just 5 solid points
