Passage 1
In partnership with civil society such as, the Indian Drug User Forum (IDUF) and Dayspring, UNODC organised a series of events on the 1 and 2 December; all in keeping with this year’s theme of ” Close the Gap”:
The first event was kicked off with a visual and musical evening with the theme “Spirit of Positive Living”, an event which gathered an audience from public, private and civil society. Opening remarks were delivered from key community figures in the field of HIV/AIDS work, followed by the screening of thematic films on overdose and Women Who Use Drugs and ended with a musical band performance.
The following day, a friendly football match was organised by UNODC. The match was opened by Mr. Yury Fedotov UNODC Executive Director, with a kicking off the ball. The match, an effort to promote the spirit of positive living, saw UNODC staff and local community members in a face-off. The match brought to the forefront the importance of involving and empowering community members themselves to mobilize resources, generate awareness and reach out for services. The community team won the match by 4-1. Mr. Fedotov spoke to community leaders about their experiences and activities and gave a memento to the IDUF team while expressing his appreciation of the dedication for their work on HIV.

Passage 2
Occupational and geographic mobility across the region are bridging income and consumption-related disparities, says the World Bank report, ‘Addressing Inequality in South Asia’. The findings accordingly underscore the role of urbanisation and private sector participation as being critical to mitigating socio-economic disadvantages. Inequality should be understood in terms of monetary and non-monetary dimensions of well-being, contends the report. The share of the poorest 40 per cent of households in total consumption shows that inequality in South Asia is moderate by international standards. The comparison is valid even though estimates elsewhere are based on income per capita. Significantly, but not surprisingly, economic mobility of the recent decades has proved beneficial to the population at large, cutting across traditional divides and challenging stereotypes. This finding, if anything, underscores the positive effects of legal safeguards for the protection of minorities. Indeed, monetary inequality of enormous significance is manifested in India’s highly disproportionate billionaire wealth, amounting to 12 per cent of gross domestic product in 2012. The ratio is considerably large even compared with other countries at a similar level of economic development, says the report.

Conversely, non-monetary indices of well-being pertain to opportunities available to people in the early years, outcomes during adulthood and support systems through the life-cycle. Thus, although it is not the poorest region, South Asia accounts for some of the worst human development outcomes in basic education and health care. Besides the highest rates of infant and child mortality that prevail in many parts of the region, more than 50 per cent of poor children below five years of age in Bangladesh and Nepal are stunted; the proportion for India is over 60 per cent. Pervasive tax avoidance and regressive fuel and electricity subsidies are primarily responsible for the inadequate provisioning of public services. Of no insignificant value is the non-dogmatic stance the report adopts on a fundamental moral question such as inequality. Drawing upon influential academic debates in economics and philosophy, the study argues that the rewards linked to hard work and entrepreneurship serve as incentives to give one’s best and enhance overall well-being. It would be fair to infer that non-monetary inequalities are arbitrary and potentially more detrimental to economic growth over the long term. To bring such ideas into the public and political mainstream would enhance the quality of the debate, and further consolidate contemporary competitive electoral democracies.

Additionally, the report finds that social mobility was greater for backward castes.
When we looked at the role of caste and tribe, first is in terms of opportunity – whether being from a backward caste or tribe matters for your access to education and health. The answer is yes, but it’s not the only factor – gender matters a lot, whether you’re rural or urban matters a lot, the education of your parents matters a lot. So it’s not the only factor. But certainly if you look at opportunity, these people are at a disadvantage.
Then when we look at mobility part, the news is mixed but generally positive. We look at mobility in two ways; one is your occupation compared to the occupation of your father, and the other is your consumption over time. On occupation, in a mobile society, it should be uncorrelated; what you are is not determined by who your father was. And for younger generations in India, that is increasingly true. For older generations, people from lower castes and tribes, tended to have lower mobility than other groups; in recent years they have slightly more mobility than other groups, and that is encouraging news.
On the consumption side, they have slightly less mobility than other groups, but still substantial mobility. This is not to say that jobs fully trump caste, but it is one of the few things that can really upset disadvantages. Skilled jobs are an opportunity to offset the disadvantages of caste and tribe.
Q5. Which of the following statement is correct according to the message?
a) Social mobility in all sectors is equal.
b) Social mobility was greater for backward castes
c) There is no social and economic mobility observed on caste and tribe.
d) Jobs can not upset disadvantages of tribe and caste.
Q6. Which of the following statement(s) as per the passage is/true?
1. Backward caste or tribe matters for your access to education and health.
2. Skilled jobs are an opportunity to offset the disadvantages of caste and tribe.
a) 1 only
b) 2 only
c) 1 and 2 both
d) Neither 1 nor 2

Q7. Which of the following statement is/are correct as per the passage?
1. besides caste and tribe gender also matters for opportunity
2. Education of parents hardly impact opportunity.
3. There is hardly any social and economic mobility.
a) 1, 2, 3
b) 2, 3
c) 2 only
d) 1 only
Q8. What inference you can make from the passage?
a) Population of caste and tribe who are disadvantages in opportunity is huge.
b) Opportunity wise caste and tribe is in disadvantages but the mobility is positive.
c) Social and economic mobility as fast as other group moves
d) Consumption mobility is hardly dependent on caste and tribe

Directions for the following 8 (eight) items:
Read the following two passages and answer the items that follow each passage. Your answers to these items should be based on the passages only.
Passage 1
EVERYONE recognises that erosion of the autonomy of national policymaking (or briefly put, some loss of “policy space”) has been among the important effects of various processes of economic globalisation and the institutional arrangements that have accompanied them. There are broadly two schools of thought in this regard. One sees this as both a necessary and a virtuous outcome of global integration, which forces governments to do what is “ultimately best” for them and for others, notwithstanding possible short-term pain. The second view not only contests the notion of one-size-fits-all policy direction but sees it as a significant loss of sovereignty and flexibility and an unfortunate reduction in the ability of governments to identify and pursue the most appropriate mix of economic and social policies to achieve equitable and sustainable development in their own national contexts, even as they remain part of an interdependent global economy.
However one views the process, there is too little discussion on how the trade-offs between national requirements and multinational commitments can be managed in a productive way in the current global context. This is what makes particularly valuable the latest Trade and Development Report (TDR) from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (“Global governance and policy space for development”, UNCTAD, Geneva 2014). It highlights important dimensions in which policy space is affected: through the regimes that govern cross-border trade and affect the possibility of industrial policies; through the effects of capital movements in the form of both financial flows and foreign direct investment (FDI); and through the limitations on fiscal policy, particularly taxation, that are created by international interdependence.
Q35. Author concerns is related to
a) Autonomy of the government in policy making
b) Low economic growth rate due to social welfare schemes
c) Social and economic disparity
d) Less foreign and FDI flow
Q36. As per the passage, policy space of the government is affected by
1. through the regimes that govern cross-border trade
2. Capital movement across border
3. Domestic politics dynamics
a) 1, 2, 3
b) 1,2
c) 3
d) 1,3
Q37. Consider the following statement(s)
As per the passage, which is/are the impacts of economic globalization?
1. Reduction in government autonomy
2. Long term policy view
3. Pursue the most appropriate mix of economic and social policies
a) 1,2,3
b) 1,2
c) 3
d) 1,3
Q38. As per the passage short term pain refers to
a) Heavy taxes by the government
b) unfavorable business environment
c) taking steps by government to favor business environment
d) high rate of inflation and poverty

Passage: 4

“Make in India” is being presented as a major new programme designed to facilitate investment, foster innovation, enhance skill development, protect intellectual property and build best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure. A tall order, you might say —especially when some of these goals may well operate at cross purposes, such as the protection of intellectual property in ways that could constrain local adaptation, innovation and access to knowledge. But the rousing enthusiasm expressed in the declarations of support for this programme is not marked by caution or nuance, and simply sidesteps the harder but still necessary questions about how this is to be achieved in practice.
This is not to say that the goal itself is unimportant. Certainly, this government should be commended for recognising the significance of industrialisation, and recognising that domestic production capabilities need to be encouraged, developed and expanded. Of course, this is not a particularly new insight since it was clearly also the driving spirit behind the now much-maligned Nehruvian agenda for development. But it is one that had been underplayed if not even forgotten in the years of euphoria around “service-led growth” and the belief that liberalised market forces would deliver both higher growth and economic diversification in a desirable direction.
Over the past few years, several economists have indeed stressed the negative implications of the neglect of industry’s requirements. Their critique is based on an alternative conception of development that recognises the necessity of trade and industrial policies that would promote economic diversification to higher value-added activities, as well as the need to developing the home market by emphasising employment creation and higher wage incomes. More recent concerns have been to ensure that growth is sustainable (by not overexploiting nature) and inclusive (by focussing on the incomes of the less well-off sections).
Q39. The main aim of the ‘Make in India’ campaign as per the passage is
a) Increasing growth domestic product
b) Invite more foreign direct investment
c) Making domestic economy more diversified
d) Enhancing skills and women empowerment

d) None of the above
Q41. As per the passage following inference(s) can be made?
a) Industrialization will bring diversification in the economy
b) There will be employment creation through make in India
c) High wage rate as a result of the industrialization
d) all of the above
Q42. According to the passage, what is/are the advantages of economic diversification?
1. More political stability in the country

a) 1 only

Directions for the following 8 (eight) items:
Read the following two passages and answer the items that follow each passage. Your answers to these items should be based on the passages only.
Passage1:
The main aim of this agreement —which will be a “protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under the Convention applicable to all Parties”, to quote the strange phraseology used by the decision of COP 17 (2011) in Durban—is to limit carbon emissions from all countries so as to prevent the globe from breaching the guardrail temperature increase of 2° Celsius by the turn of the century, a limit arrived at in the Cancun summit in 2010. If there was any misplaced hope at all that Lima would come up with a satisfactory legal structure to achieve this goal, it was belied. According to the mandate of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP), which is entrusted with the task of arriving at the new agreement, the Paris Accord will enter into force in 2020.
The phrase “another legal instrument” (italicised above) is a reference to the only binding international treaty that has hitherto been in place, that is, the Kyoto Protocol. It was formulated in 1997 and it entered into force in 2005, and its architecture is based firmly on the fundamental tenets of the UNFCCC, namely:

Significantly, the report notes that the rates of warming accelerated in the 20th century. “Most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century,” says the report in particular, “is very likely [greater than 90 per cent probability] due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations.” This should be compared with the conclusion of the Third Assessment Report (TAR) in 2001 that “most of the observed warming in the last 50 years is likely[greater than 66 per cent probability] to have been due to the increase in GHG concentrations”. The report also concludes, on the basis of climate models, that it is very unlikely (less than 10 per cent probability) that climate changes of at least seven centuries prior to 1950 were due to variability generated within the climate system alone, such as aerosol load from volcanic eruptions and changes in solar irradiance, and not due to anthropogenic forcing, which became evident only in the early 20th century.
Q58. According to the passage which of the following is/are source of climate change?
a) Aerosol load from volcanic activities

d) Neither a nor b
Q63. According to the passage, which of the following statement(s) is/are correct?
a) Most of the countries of the world are members of the Kyoto Protocol.
b) India’s efforts have been acclaimed world over towards its commitment of environment.
c) and b

Passage2
Many countries, including the United States, grapple with questions of identity and inequality, and how we treat each other, people who are different than us, how we deal with diversity of beliefs and of faiths. Right now, in crowded neighborhoods not far from here, a man is driving an auto-rickshaw, or washing somebody else’s clothes, or doing the hard work no one else will do. And a woman is cleaning somebody else’s house. And a young man is on a bicycle delivering lunch.

A little girl is hauling a heavy bucket of water. And I believe their dreams, their hopes, are just as important, just as beautiful, just as worthy as ours. And so even as we live in a world of terrible inequality, we’re also proud to live in countries where even the grandson of a cook can become President, or even a Dalit can help write a constitution, and even a tea seller can become Prime Minister.…
Our nations are strongest when we see that we are all God’s children – all equal in His eyes and worthy of His love.
