  • Kisi ne informal pressure groups me criminal groups; fringe religious groups likha hai kya? As they contribute with money muscle and garnering support of religious followers during elections so they influence governments later ?

    U could have written that as well but informal groups doing positive work like those seen during Anna movement ,Nirbhaya case and recently not in my name campaign can also be highlighted....best approach is to write both positive and negative informal groups...

    Civil services wale me reform ke under arc 2 ko quote ki ki 14 yrs and 20 yrs ke baad performance review ho aur dead wood ko nikalo. Lateral entry ko consider karo. Talked about the beginnings jo govt ne ki hai whereby 30 yrs of service ke baad non performing civil servants ko sack kia hai (ye rule book me already tha but koi implement nahi karta tha), 360 degree feedback start kia hai.

    Shg wale me to pucha hi positive the i guess. Initiatives me shg bank linkage prgm, nrlm ke thru shg formation and promotion, fund support to shgs, provision of training to shgs etc.

    pata nahin yaar i was like i have lost the game as i was vague and not coherent in answers despite of putting efforts..but seeing these threads looks like difference is less atleast of the people talking on this forum
    Bro all points must be presented in a structured way. That is very imp. Points will be the same like i said but the way you weave your answer by using those points is all that makes you or break you.
