Welcome to Day 13 of TLP Phase I. Please understand that the next 12 weeks are not meant to test your knowledge. Most of you are giving your first attempt and its really important for you to self assess yourself over the fundamentals of various subjects. And even if you have appeared for CSM before, it is always desirable to brush up your basics before you go on to attempt highly analytical and thought provoking questions asked by UPSC. TLP Phase I is designed precisely for that. The questions in this phase would mostly be direct and based on fundamentals of the subject. Please be sincere and regular in this phase of your preparation because what you build here will become the foundation of phase II of TLP.

Indian Society


1. Caste as a social institution has changed its characteristics in the past two decades; a transformation brought about by caste based entitlements. Do you agree? Substantiate your views. (Hint: Focus as to why new caste groups are coming up with demands of reservation while earlier this was not the case.)

2. India is at the brink of a demographic disaster. Critically comment.

3. The hidden entrepreneurial energies of women must unleash in order to ensure economic and social security. Discuss.

Current Affairs

4. Discuss the merits and challenges associated with ‘Universal Basic Income’.

5. What is ‘Smart Cities’ mission? What are its components and objectives? Will it resolve the problems associated with urbanization? Explain.


Please note that, for the first 3 Questions, Answers will be reviewed & Synopsis will be provided. But for the 4th & 5th Question from Current Affairs ONLY Synopsis will be provided


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 🙂
