  • Neha Jha

    Last night the discussion topic was on FDI.
    In the discussion, there was a topic regarding the flipkart opening their buisness in Singapore etc. I didn’t get what exactly was that? How it will affect India if the flipkart is opening its branches in Singapore? Do we have any losses.? Or it has to do something with GDP?Anyone if understood this point please explain.

    • SK

      The person in discussion is just saying that if FDI comes into the country via “round tripping” (through countries like Singapore, Mauritius etc) it would be dangerous to the economy. He mentioned about Flipkart moving to SIngapore, only to highlight that SIngapore is better than India.

  • Neha Jha

    In the last night “India-Bangladesh Home Secretary level Talks” topic at a juncture there was mention about young men joining these illegal activities of gold smuggling or cattle smuggling. Can the reference be taken that young men are involved because of illiteracy or unemployment ?

    • Ashish Agrawal

      I think that’s the only reason.. Same applies to issue of drug abuse by youth..

      • Neha Jha

        Thanks for the reply and if I am right, in the drug abuse cases most of youth are literate and belonging to a high class societies.They can afford drugs and it is due to lack of their correct decision choices they are trapped in it. Isn’t it? If wrong please correct me.

        And one more question, can we write that government programmes related to education or employment is not fully implemented at the ground levels so most of the youth are involved in illegal activities? While writing answers can indirectly government should be blamed or not for not implementing its policies ?

        • Ashish Agrawal

          Sorry! I wrote abuse, it should be smuggling… And yes u r right, its lack of their correct decision choices. U can also add substance abuse by children, poor people. For more points u can refer spotlight of 13-15 Dec 14 ( not sure which date) titled ” pm’s msg to youth against drug abuse” / man Ki baat issue in Dec 14

          For blaming gov’s programmes please be subtle and also give ur suggestions for improvement. Rest writing practice will teach u

          • Neha Jha

            thank you….

          • Ghost_neutrino

            On which frequency does the spotlight is broadcasted? Pls tell the frequency. Thank you

          • Neha Jha

            It’s 106.4 in delhi…[email protected] 9:15p.m

  • Ajitesh89

    govt is planning to install national grid for ethanol blended petrol…how will that work?

    • Ashish Agrawal

      I think they said ‘ethanol grid’ as sugar mills have presence in 10 states, they can connected to each other to provide mandatory ethanol for blending programe.

      • Ajitesh89


  • Neha Jha

    What is financial prudence. please explain?

    Also please tell, is their any lower ceiling in SLR earlier it was 25-40% and then it was reduced to 23% in July 2013 as written in Indian Economy pg. 12.5? Presently it is 21.5%.

    • Ashish Agrawal

      In simple words, financial prudence is efficient and effective budgeting exercise. U have 100 rupees &10 expense items so u make a balance between each items during allocations so that no one suffers because of other.

      SLR is just a quantitative tool in monetary policy framework. No lower limits. RBI can issue zero SLR rate as well (in my view).

      • Neha Jha

        thanks a lot…

    28th November : 26th Nov as 1st Constitution Day

    125th Birth Anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar (visionary and his ideas relevant across generation, to all sections of society , in all times ) ,his contribution to constitution making and nation building

    Need to celebrate this day ?
    Its not to undermine the importance of 26th Jan but to complement it.
    Opportunity to show India’s commitment towards its constitution ,
    Reaffirm the supremacy , understand the essence and spirit of ‘law of laws , the difficult environment it was drafted and how the consensus was reached despite 2000 amendments ,how it has prevailed in the situation of crises .
    Chance to create awareness among masses about the significance and relevance of a living and ‘color blind’ social document . Debates , essay , online competition , discussions and deliberations should be done the year round constantly .
    We should focus on Constitutional Education – not only the knowledge (FR , Preamble , Salient features only ) but its understanding and application .
    Related Questions –
    Essay topic -Constitution


    Learning with times of India is easy to understand some topics.. can it be posted on this site regularly? thankyou
