Welcome to Day 49 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.



1. With the completion of assembly elections in 5 states, the governments changed but what remained constant was the civil services and that is the significance of civil services in a democracy. Elucidate.

2. Transparency in governance isn’t only a tool for information sharing but also a way of instilling faith and bringing about empowerment. Comment.

3. Tools like citizen charters serve no purpose except bombastic claims by the government agencies with no legal backing to enforce them in word and spirit. Do you agree? Critically examine.

Current Affairs

4. Moral policing of any kind is repugnant of the idea of democracy. Discuss.

5. Merger of two telecom giants is a signal of consolidation which must be put to scrutiny on the yardsticks of competition law. Discuss.

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 🙂
