Hello Everyone, 

TLP being an integral formula for success for many toppers over the years including Rank 1 is no secret. In their ‘must to-do’ list for the UPSC Civil Services Mains Examination, TLP by far occupies the first place. The popularity stems from the unparalleled quality of questions and synopsis posted in TLP. We strive hard to ensure that you get the real feel of UPSC standard before you write the actual Mains.
You already know the features of TLP. Just to reiterate briefly, we will post 3 questions daily for a certain number of weeks (12 for this one). We follow a micro plan that is designed to give you daily targets. The questions are from the day’s syllabus and also from current affairs and you are expected to write the answers and post them on the portal.

From this year we have integrated the TLP free answer writing page in the main website itself, unlike previous years. So all the answers should be posted under the questions for the evaluation.

Join our bandwagon, you won’t regret it.

1. You are serving as the secretary in the Information and Broadcasting Ministry of the Government. Your office has been receiving many complaints against the online streaming platforms for showing abusive, violent and sexual content. The parents are concerned that the shows being streamed are having a bad influence on the impressionable minds of their children. While there are safeguards available in the form of parental control of the content that kids can watch, they aren’t effective. Kids do find a way to watch the content of their liking by using proxies or even stealing the login credentials. Pressure is mounting on you to regulate the content and put a ban on shows streaming adult content. However, the proponents of the rights of the entertainment industry are quite vociferous about the creative freedom of directors/ producers of online shows. They are in complete opposition to any regulation of the content being streamed. They give examples of many western countries where censorship of content is hardly done.   

As a senior servant and policymaker, what decision would you take and why? Substantiate your views.

आप सरकार के सूचना एवं प्रसारण मंत्रालय में सचिव के रूप में कार्यरत हैं। आपके कार्यालय को ऑनलाइन स्ट्रीमिंग प्लेटफॉर्म के खिलाफ अपमानजनक, हिंसक और यौन सामग्री दिखाने के लिए  कई शिकायतें मिल रही हैं। मातापिता चिंतित हैं कि प्रदर्शित किए जा रहे शो उनके बच्चों पर बुरा प्रभाव डाल रहे हैं। हालाँकि कार्यक्रमों के ऊपर मातापिता के नियंत्रण के रूप में कुछ उपाय उपलब्ध हैं, पर वे प्रभावी नहीं हैं। बच्चे प्रॉक्सी का उपयोग करके या यहां तक ​​कि लॉगिन क्रेडेंशियल चोरी करके अपनी पसंद के कार्यक्रम को देखने का तरीका ढूंढ ही लेते हैं। आप पर कंटेंट को रेगुलेट करने और एडल्ट कंटेंट के शो की स्ट्रीमिंग पर बैन लगाने का दबाव बढ़ रहा है। हालांकि, मनोरंजन उद्योग के अधिकारों के समर्थक ऑनलाइन शो के निर्देशकों/निर्माताओं की रचनात्मक स्वतंत्रता के बारे में काफी मुखर हैं। वे स्ट्रीम की जा रहे कार्यक्रमों के किसी भी नियमन के पूर्ण विरोध में हैं। वे कई पश्चिमी देशों का उदाहरण देते हैं जहां कार्यक्रमों की सेंसरशिप शायद ही कभी की जाती है।

एक वरिष्ठ लोकसेवक और नीति निर्माता के रूप में आप क्या निर्णय लेंगे और क्यों? अपने विचारों की पुष्टि करें।

P.S: The review from IASbaba will happen from the time every day. We would also encourage peer reviews. So friends get actively involved and start reviewing each other’s answers. This will keep the entire community motivated.

All the Best 🙂
