Socio-Economic Issues 2022
An important part of the General Studies syllabi of Civil Services Examinations, socio-economic issues cover many significant aspects of our lives such as health, education, poverty, unemployment, economic well-being, social security, and many more. As civil servants have to deal with these basic governance issues, this subject forms an important segment of preparation for Civil Services Examinations.
Socio-economic issues cover about 50 marks in Prelims and 150 marks in Mains examination. But, there is no specific or dedicated book so far in this subject. Aspirants have to prepare these topics from newspapers, magazines, etc. in bits and pieces.
Therefore, we have come up with this book ‘Socio-Economic Issues’ that will cater to the demands of Civil Services Examinations conducted by Union Public Service Commission and State Public Service Commissions.
This book has been written adhering strictly to the latest syllabus and is based on a careful analysis of the trend of questions asked from the socio-economic sector/issues.
The contents of this book cover all dimensions of socio-economic issues like Human Development, Sustainable Development, Inclusive Growth & Development, Financial Inclusion, Poverty & Inequality, Hunger & Malnutrition, Healthcare, Education, Employment, Rural Development, Agrarian Distress, Social Security & UBI, Vulnerable Groups, Regional Imbalance, and Demography, etc.
Further, government interventions to address the above issues have been presented in a unique style comprising concepts, current status, challenges, government initiatives, and way forward, along with most recent data and facts available. Data may vary with future developments, so students are advised to update them through regular study of current affairs.
