Welcome to Day 34 of TLP Phase II. 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 was designed precisely for that. Moving on to Phase II, we will cover all possible issues of contemporary importance as well as touching upon various aspects of static subjects.

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. For India to make urbanisation sustainable, it must first tackle the problems of multiplicity of jurisdictions, weak revenue base and human resource capacity deficit that impact most of its cities. Analyse.

2. Given the high level of economic inequality in the country intensified by successive droughts in recent years, a rethink of the human-environment relationship is required wherein Indian Cities adopt nature-based solutions to revive themselves. Elucidate.

3. Andhra Pradesh’s new capital city will require enormous amounts of energy and resources to build and to run, while destroying precious natural environments and local livelihoods. Do you agree? Examine.

4. The devastations caused by floods in Bihar and adjoining states bears testimony to our lack of preparedness to tackle floods. Comment. Also suggest measures to improve India’s disaster response.

5. Railways is considered to be the lifeline of our country but the frequency of fatal accidents have only increased in the recent past. What does it tell about Indian Railway’s ecosystem? Critically analyse.

Note – The answers will be reviewed only if it is posted before 9.30 pm everyday
