Welcome to Day 47 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 Economy and Agriculture


1. Agricultural subsidies not only distort the market but also have serious implications for the environment. Examine.

2. Do you think replacing the existing public distribution system and other benefits for the BPL families with a Universal Basic Income (UBI) will be a fiscally prudent decision? Critically analyse.

3. That technology can empower is a well established fact. However, the penetration of technology into the agricultural sector is an unfinished agenda. Do you agree? Examine.

Current Affairs

4. What is your assessment of the budgetary allocation to the defense sector? Is it adequate? Also give suggestions to streamline the defense sector in India.

5. The Indus Water Treaty remains a major irritant in Indo-Pak relations. Do you agree? Examine the issue and associated developments in the recent past.

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 🙂
