Q1. Electric vehicles can reduce urban pollution significantly.

[I] Addressing vehicular emissions is within our grasp but requires a multi-pronged approach. It needs to combine the already-proposed tighter emission norms (in form of BS VI), with a push for shared mobility and public transport and adoption of alternate mobility technologies. While shared mobility can moderate the demand for individual vehicle ownership and usage, technology solutions today can allow for a sharp reduction in emissions per vehicle. Government policy will impact adoption that will affect both the extent and the future growth of urban pollution.

[II] The policy roadmap should encompass three key elements based on global learnings. First, incentives for adoption of alternate mobility technologies. Second, restrictions on elements that contribute negatively to strategic objectives (such as congestion charges on polluting technologies), and last provision of enabling infrastructure.

[III] There is a need to impose restrictions through supply-side regulations on OEMs to increase production of zero emission vehicles to curb urban pollution. Most Western countries adopt enforceable norms that ensure supply of electric vehicles. China has mandated OEMs to produce 10 per cent electric vehicles of their total production. There will, of course, be the need to think about improving the provision of non-polluting public transport. These include electric buses, metros, and shared EV fleets to reduce traffic and usage.

(e) none of these

Q2. NHPS’s model tender document leaves several questions unanswered .
[I] Immediately after the announcement of National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS), questions were raised over the capacity of the country’s healthcare system to handle a project of such proportions. There were also apprehensions that private hospitals would milk the NHPS by prescribing unnecessary investigations. The Model Tender Document for The Selection of Implementing Agencies For the NHPS, released by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, tries to address some of these concerns.

[II] The model tender document for The Selection of Implementing Agencies For the NHPS, released by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare states that several procedures, including emergency consultation for acute colic, nebulisation for an asthma attack, hypoglycaemia in a diabetic and treatment of “dengue without complication”, will be covered by the scheme only if the treatment is availed in a government hospital. Such ailments can indeed be taken care of at a primary health centre (PHC)

[III] The model tender document states that nearly 47 per cent of the packages under the NHPS, including those related to heart ailments and cancer, require pre-authorisation. In other words, hospitals empanelled under the scheme cannot perform these procedures until they have an authorisation letter from the NHPS’s Implementation Support Agency. Such concerns were raised when the scheme was announced. With about two months to go for the NHPC’s launch, it is disquieting that the government has not yet managed to address them convincingly.

(c) both (I) and (III)
(d) all (I), (II) and (III)
(e) none of these

Q3. Latest alterations in textbooks short-circuit established processes, undermine NCERT autonomy

[I] In a major break with practices until 2016, in the current process of alterations in NCERT books, there was no consultation between the NCERT’s chief advisors and the TDCs that prepared the books during 2005-9. There was no alert to writer-contributors who had not waived their rights over their contributions. Nor is there any indication that a prevailing system of revision, referring to TDCs, has itself been officially revised. The names that figure on the books as “textbook development committees” remain the same, though most of them have not been involved in the insertion/revision process. The lack of intimation reflects on the independence of such an establishment.

[II] The fact that much of the textbook material has been left alone in the latest NCERT changes indicates that the pedagogic purpose and outcome of the initiative are still able to argue for themselves; and that the initiative is still valued in the NCERT establishment. This, in turn, raises questions about why the current changes have been made as they have. The long arm of political directive is suggested to an be an obstruction — in an autonomous body that has shown its ability to take an imaginative course while generating a discursive relationship with all those involved in education, without rendering itself an arm of the state.

[III] In history, this was to be achieved with due attention to the formative processes in Indian and world history from a plurality of perspectives; in economics, sociology and political studies, commerce and geography, it involved a wide invocation of the experiences of India’s various communities while preserving the interactive domain of the Social Sciences and the value of the disciplines individually. A series of NCERT Focus Group Reports of the mid-2000s articulated aspects of this agenda.

(c) only (II)
(d) all (I), (II) and (III)
(e) none of these

Q4. Since policy-making and implementation increasingly need specialists, lateral entry into senior levels of bureaucracy is a good idea.

[I] The UPSC system does draw people from diverse educational backgrounds — doctors, engineers, graduates in the social sciences, humanities and management studies — into the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). But the IAS’s scheme of posting and transfer values general competency more than specialised skills. This means that by the time a bureaucrat attains seniority, she has served in so many departments that her original set of skills and expertise has attenuated considerably.

[II] The Centre’s decision to make possible “lateral entry” of “talented and motivated Indian nationals” into the senior levels of the bureaucracy is a much-needed reform. In an advertisement issued on Sunday, the Department of Personnel and Training invited applications from outstanding individuals, including those from the private sector, for appointment to joint secretary-level posts. Although it is an initial offering of 10 posts in areas such as financial services, agriculture, environment, renewable energy, transport and revenue, the move could be a significant step towards fulfilling the longstanding need for domain specialists in positions crucial to policy-making and implementation of government schemes.

[III] In the past, governments have occasionally inducted talent from outside the bureaucracy for administrative purposes. The UPA government appointed Nandan Nilekani to head the UIDAI. But in general, governments have tried to meet the need for experts by appointing consultants. The Second Administrative Reforms Commission’s (ARC) recommendation of an “institutionalised and transparent process for lateral entry at both the Central and state levels” had so far gone unheeded.
(a) both (I) and (II)
(b) only (III)
(c) only (II)
(d) all (I), (II) and (III)
(e) none of these

Q5. SBI to stop handling payments for oil imports from Iran.

[I] Although the government had cut imports from Tehran in 2017/18 due to a dispute over a giant gas field, Iran remained its third-biggest oil supplier. Iran supplied about 458,000 barrels per day (bpd), or about a tenth of the country’s more than 4.5 million bpd of imports, in the fiscal year to March 2018.

[II] The new Indian government has promised to put the economy back on an accelerated growth path with reforms in the energy, financial, and employment sectors. Energy is the backbone of the Indian economy, so the right energy policies will spur growth in all other sectors. With India soon expected to be the world’s third largest energy consumer, there is an urgent need to get these right: current demand for imported coal, oil, and natural gas is significantly outpacing domestic production, and the country is being forced to spend valuable foreign capital to procure additional energy resources.

[III] Imports was reported at 4,308.30 Barrel/Day th in Dec 2016. This records an increase from the previous number of 3,935.50 Barrel/Day th for Dec 2015. India’s Crude Oil: Imports data is updated yearly, averaging 2,078.15 Barrel/Day th from Dec 1995 to 2016, with 22 observations. The data reached an all-time high of 4,308.30 Barrel/Day th in 2016 and a record low of 602.50 Barrel/Day th in 1995.

(b) only (III)
(c) only (II)
(d) all (I), (II) and (III)
(e) none of these
