UPSC Mains ‘High Order Thinking [HOT]’ GS Questions
2. Higher education in India is faced with challenges that range from lack of institutional autonomy to heavy bureaucratization of policy making. In light of the given statement and the recent ‘Occupy UGC’ protest, examine the need of having a national education policy. Also suggest the broad framework which should be adhered to by the policy.
3. There is an urgent need of launching a comprehensive universal national health assurance scheme. Do you agree? Substantiate in light of the ‘public versus private’ debate in the area of healthcare of services.
4. The regulatory regime for the advertisement of consumer products leaves a lot to be desired in terms of legal and moral framework. The troika of manufacturer, licensing authority and advertisement agency should be held accountable for the false or unverified claims being made by celebrities for endorsing a product. Do you agree? Also, does in in your opinion any accountability be imposed on the celebrities who endorse such products? Critically examine.
5. While India strives to better it’s record on the front of indigenization of technology, the domestic ecosystem is not conducive for measures like joint development and transfer of technology. Critically comment.
P.S: The review from IASbaba will happen from the time the question is posted till 10 pm everyday. We would also encourage peer reviews.. so friends get actively involved and start reviewing each others answers. This will keep the entire community motivated.
All the Best 🙂
