Day 85- POLITY & HOT

Q.1) Examine the government budget by the Central Government as an instrument of public policy and as a tool of legislative control.

Q.2) The prevalence of multiple channels for transfer of resources from the Center to the States is stated to have compounded the problems of federal fiscal arrangements. Discuss.

Q.3) Public Undertakings of the Central Government could be booked upon both as an asset and a liability. Which measures would you suggest to enhance their utility as an asset and to reduce their drag as a liability?

Q.4) “The Cabinet is not a constitutional body.” Critically comment.

Q.5) Discuss the evolution of the role of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) since independence.


Q.6) The Indian diaspora is not only clustered in the developed west but also in other parts of the world that include Africa, Latin America, South East and West Asia. It is unfortunate though that their interests and problems have not been central to Indian diplomacy and their presence not viewed in the same potential terms as their counterparts in the developed west. Do you agree? Substantiate.

Q.7) The interplay of the Ukrainian crisis, sanctions by the west on Russia and Russia’s new global posturing through the modernization of it’s ballistic missile inventory is an indication of the return of the Cold War era but in a different shape and form. Do you agree with this assessment of the global order today? Critically comment.
