Good overall approach, it gave me quite a few pointers. Your addition of federal power separation here is really good.
Maybe you can put similar pointers in a row for the 2nd header i.e. flexible separation of powers- Legislature (making of laws), executive (ordinances via president) and judicial activism
Also you can include independent constitutional bodies like Election commission

Very good discussion in all the parts of the answers.
Intro is quite decent.
Solid and crisp main part. Discussion is UPSC standard and all the dimensions have been covered.

Discuss the content of the statement of the question as your intro and link it with the concept of absolute poverty, That is a better way to approach your intro.
No need to give such a detailed flowchart regarding absolute poverty. Your idea ids good but this is not the topic of the main body of your answer so do not give so much time and space to this concept.
The discussion in the main body of the answer is gold standard.

You could have written at least 2 more lines giving more intro of the bill and why it is needed.
Overall answer is really good
But do not overuse flowcharts.
You have to have some kind of explanations in the answers. Your coverage of the points so far has been impressive but you have to explain a bit about them.
In the last part, you can add A P Shah committee, Law commission report etc.

Hi Vishvjeet
You mentioned that Indian Const has given separation of power but its not true entirely. The Indian Constitution has not indeed recognized the doctrine of separation of powers explicitly in its absolute rigidity, Avoid such factually incorrect statements in the starting of your answer.
There was no proper structure or presentation in the answer. Points are not explained in apt manner and the direction of the answer is lacking.
Mention how the concept of separation of power is missing from the Indian const and how courts, through various rulings, identified the concept inherent in the Indian system and how it became one of the doctrines of basic structure of the const.
What are the issue in the functioning of the doctrine?
What should be done?
You were supposed to discuss all this.

While you discussed many points, but their weightage is on the correct ratio.
First of all tell what is absolute poverty.
Do not over explain various programs and their highlights. Just mention them and discuss what are shortcomings.
Decent points in the shortcomings but you can also add points like unequal distribution of land and other assets; appropriation of the benefits by the non-poor; insufficient amount of resources allocated for these programmes; over dependence on government and bank officials for their implementation; ill motivated, inadequately trained, corruption prone and vulnerable to pressure personnel;
wastage of resources; non-participation of local level institutions in programme implementation; non participation of the poor etc.

1. Wen “critically” is suffixed or prefixed in a question, den u need to look at d good n bad of something n provide a reasonable judgement. Wen UPSC asks to comment in d question, den it is is usually followed by a statement made by some famous personality, or taken out frm a book or some document of govt or agencies. Wen u r askd to comment, u have to pick main points n give ur ‘opinion’ on dem based on arguments coming out from ur knowledge of d topic. ur opinion may b for or against, but u must back ur argument wid evidences.

2. “Discuss” is a very wide directive. u have to debate on paper by going through d details of d issues concerned by examining each one of dem. U have to give reasons for both “for” n “against” arguments.

3. Wen u r asked to “evaluate”, sound judgement is required about d validity of d given statement in d question or d topic based on evidences. u have an option of forming a personal opinion in dese types of question n appraise d worth of d statement

4. Wen u r asked to “examine”, u have to search deeper into d topic, get into details, n find out d causes or implications if any.
5. “Analyse” is a broader term den ‘Examine’. Wen asked to analyse, u have to examine logically d structure or nature of d topic by separating or dividing it into component parts n present dem as a whole in a summary. Its like dividing d question into various imp parts n den examining each part separately n den joining dem together to create a conclusion. In a simpler language, if u r asked to analyse, den examine each part of d problem.

6. If asked to “Critically Analyze” den u need to conclude wid a fair judgement, after “analysing” d nature of each component part n interrelationship between them.

7. “Critically comment” is also forming opinion on main points but in d end u have to provide a fair judgement.

Hi Mahesh
No. This is not absolute poverty. What you discussed as the ideal explanation of absolute poverty is not correct. Instead: “Also known as extreme poverty or abject poverty, it involves the scarcity of basic food, clean water, health, shelter, education and information. Those who belong to absolute poverty tend to struggle to live and experience a lot of child deaths from preventable diseases like malaria, cholera and water-contamination related diseases. ”

What is the status of poverty alleviation programs in India and mention some of the success after intro. Also mention few of these schemes and programs
You tried to give couple of shortcomings but discussion is not leading anywhere.
You can add points like unequal distribution of land and other assets; appropriation of the benefits by the non-poor; insufficient amount of resources allocated for these programmes; over dependence on government and bank officials for their implementation; ill motivated, inadequately trained, corruption prone and vulnerable to pressure personnel; wastage of resources; non-participation of local level institutions in programme implementation; non participation of the poor etc.

Few suggestions.
Summarize the 1st three paras and make couple of paragraphs out of them and use them as your intro. Right now they are bit lengthy.
Secondly, instead of discussing one programs and its shortfalls separately, just mention some of the programs and schemes that government brought and then in next part, discuss overall failures and reasons for those failures of these schemes. That way, you will have better coverage of the issue. Right now you covered only 3 4 issues but there are multiple issues like unequal distribution of land and other assets; appropriation of the benefits by the non-poor; insufficient amount of resources allocated for these programmes; over dependence on government and bank officials for their implementation; ill motivated, inadequately trained, corruption prone and vulnerable to pressure personnel; wastage of resources; non-participation of local level institutions in programme implementation; non participation of the poor etc.
The coverage and depth is very important in UPSC answers. Rather than 3 well explained points, its better to have 6 7 points which are moderately covered.
Way forward is better and nicely explained.

Hi Rohi
Quite fragmented intro. Points are not coherent to one another. Avoid such general start to your answers.
Answer is very lengthy in terms of words, space and content.
Quality of the answer is not very good and it needs proper structuring and presentation.
You dont have to mention all the article numbers line by line.
The ideal structure of the answer would have been this:

-What are the important articles in India that give little bit of idea for SOP?
-What are the various court rulings that shaped the doctrine of SOP and how it became a member of basic structure of Const club?
-What are the challenges that this doctrine has faced recently and what should be done to make the situation better?

Never use bullet points in your intro. Your intro should be the window for your and it should reflect what to expect in the coming main body of the answer.
So discuss the theme of the question in the intro and if there is any statement in the question, then simply decode it. For example you could have started like this:

“Despite various strategies to alleviate poverty, hunger, undernourishment, illiteracy and lack of basic amenities continue to be a common feature in many parts of India. Though the policy towards poverty alleviation has evolved in a progressive manner, over the last five and a half decades, it has not undergone any radical transformation. You can find change in nomenclature, integration or mutations of programmes. But the failure of these programs stems to the fact that how government thinks about absolute poverty and its alleviation.”

Never fragment your intro into bits and pieces.
You do not have to mention current level of poverty and global hunger index. these are not related to the demands of the question.
Points in the failure discussion are very good.
Good way forwards.
But answer again is very lengthy and it is because you are discussing various things which are not required in the answer. this is taking time and space. Avoid such habit.

In your intro, just mention that bill has been reintroduced in the parliament and give just 2 more lines giving more intro of the bill and why it is needed. Thats it. No need to go in details of the technology of DNA.
Good discussion in the main body.
But there is scope of improvement in all the parts. After mentioning the highlights of the bill, briefly mention why this bill is important and what are its expected outcomes (+ves).
Never give just a passing by reference in way forward.
Your ending or solution should be concrete and not generic.
Give proper way forwards.
Yes the bill is good and indeed is the need of the hour but how to plus the loopholes? Always remember that way forwards reflect your solutions which is something UPSC is looking forward to because problems are something that everyone knows but what are the solutions!

Hi Pavan
Please upload the answers separately and not combined.

Q.1)
Intro is good and you have started really well.
But overall discussion is quite general and lack depth. What is the difference between concept of SOP in India and America? What is the Indian concept of Checks and Balances and how close it is to to SOP? What are the important articles in India that give little bit of idea for SOP? What are the various court rulings that shaped the doctrine of SOP and how it became a member of basic structure of Const club? What are the challenges that this doctrine has faced recently and what should be done to make the situation better?

These were the directions and expected structure of the answer. read the model answer.
You did discussed some of these elements but more depth was required. Good conclusion. language is decent and explanation crisp. Work on the structure as i mentioned above.

Q.2)

In the intro, give a little bit of insight on the statement of the question. Never start the question right away. briefly discuss the statement and give intro as a window to your answer.
Your points are good but you can also add points like unequal distribution of land and other assets; appropriation of the benefits by the non-poor; insufficient amount of resources allocated for these programmes; over dependence on government and bank officials for their implementation; ill motivated, inadequately trained, corruption prone and vulnerable to pressure personnel; wastage of resources; non-participation of local level institutions in programme implementation; non participation of the poor etc.

Way forwards are decent but answer ends abruptly without a conclusion. Make a habit of writing proper conclusion to your answers because this gives soft landing to your answers.

Marks: 3.5

Q.3)
Decent intro.
Good discussion in the highlight of the bill.
But while you highlighted the bill, but what are the expected +ve outcomes of the bill?
Way forwards are lacking and conclusion is missing. Answer ends abruptly. This is not the ideal way to discuss any scheme, bill, act pr program of GoI. Always you have to give solutions and way forwards to plug the loopholes. This reflects your insights on the issues at hand and your in depth knowledge.

Points are good and well explained.
But work on the structure of your answer. Sometimes points are coming in haphazard manner.

Good conclusion to your answer.
All in all nice discussion barring few issues here and there.
Keep writing.

Quite an amazing answer in terms of all the departments and dimensions.
Discussion is in-depth and yet never seemed like you indulged in over explanation.
Coverage of the topic was exhaustive and you presented all the angles and relationship between both the facets of ethics.
All in all excellent answer in terms of content, explanation, presentation, structure.
Perfect ending.
Keep it up
