Note: Click on the links and then answer on respective questions!


Welcome to Day 37 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. In a welfare State driven by directive principles of state policy, the role of pressure groups becomes indispensable. Elucidate.

2. Business groups like FICCI, CII etc and trade unions like AITUC, INTUC etc are pressure groups operating under the same democratic set up. Yet we find a difference in their approach, strategy and successes. Why? Critically analyse.

3. Pressure groups and their roles in a democracy are not always unharmful. Do you agree? What are the fallouts of having notorious pressure groups in a democratic polity? Examine with the help of suitable examples.

4. The provisions of the Representation of People Act have many loopholes that keep the arena of politics open for criminal elements. Do you agree? What safeguards do you suggest in this regard? Discuss.

5. The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea was in news recently? Why? What is its mandate?

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