    Hi GopeAsem,
    -Introduction seems to be okay…though it could have been much better…
    -Point 5 and 6 (on first page) are the consequences of unemployment and failing income…
    -Apart from Agriculture there are other sectors which faces the similar condition…need to mention about them also…like less rural industrial employment, absence of market, skill deficit, prevalence of informal sector etc…
    -Good points under way forward…very well written…
    -However, conclusion could have been much better…talk about outcome of improved economic situation in rural areas here….

    Overall, very good approach…nicely presented answer…well written…
    Keep writing…
    Marks awarded: 5.5/10

        Hi GopeAsem,
        -Introduction is very good…
        -Good points in pros also…well written…precisely presented…
        -However, the first point of the cons seem of lesser importance…they are being inducted due to their experiences in various field…like the examples put by you on first page…More clarification can be brought in point 2…talk about their interests, motive of joining (may not be to serve the people or may be to gain their personal agenda)….also mention points like it will affect in reservation, Politically motivated persons may get selected, cherry picking job with political connections etc. thus undermining the transparency and accountability….
        -The rest of the points are good…and well written…
        -Conclusion could have been much better…here we need to talk about its regulation…which should be effective and should ensure to serve the original purposes…

        Overall, good attempt…need to improve in some points…keep writing…will improve for sure…

            Hi Shefali,
            -Your introduction starts randomly…and does not give idea about what actually is LE…It is the direct appointment/recruitment at the higher level of administration…though the ideas here are good…but it should be brought in more clear way…
            -Points are good…though need more specificity in point c) of 2nd page…talk about politically motivated person may get selected, their aim may not be to serve rather to enhance their CV etc…
            -The rest of the points are good and well written…
            -Conclusion could have been little better…talk here as it’s a good idea but regulation to ensure transparency and accountability is needed…

            Overall, good attempt…well presented points…precisely written…keep writing…

                Hi Wizard,
                -Introduction seem to be okay…with nice points in salient features…
                -However, under impact…there is no need to give direction with arrow or line…you can directly put points under headings…by putting line you are wasting half of the page…
                -More specific points under impacts needed…like: Impact on Zamindars…Zamindars became the owner of the land, they became more wealthier, with more income they invested in other areas, they got settled in big cities by subleting the land to middle man…etc…
                Impact on Company: they became sure of fixed revenue, easier method of collection through zamindars, company need not required to hire manpower for revenue collection…etc…
                Impact on peasants and productivity: Peasants had ho rights over land, zamindars were using arbitrary power to to exploit the peasants, etc…

                -Conclusion is good…but the points mentioned in main body are not supporting the concluding argument…It should be the follow up….

                Overall good attempt…need to be more specific in content and bring some improvement in arranging paragraphs…

                Keep writing will improve for sure…

                    Hi Isha,
                    -Your presentation seems poor…we are not suppose to draw the mind map in answer…UPSC wants us to write in paragraphs using good flow of language and ideas well arranged…its not objective presentation…If it would have been objective, it would have been similar to prelims examination…Kindly consider and write your points in paragraphs…
                    -Also there are too many underlined and highlighted points…if all the points are important then what is the need to highlight…It makes our presentation look bad…highlighting should not be more than 15 to 20 percent…
                    -What do you want to talk in 2nd para of first page…its jumbled up without any clarity and concrete outcome…Also 3rd para…it was ARC’s recommendation and not efforts…need to be cautious while using words…
                    -Points of mind map or diagrams are incomplete (does not convey complete picture…just gives references)…
                    -Points of way forward on 2nd page is good…
                    -Though the ideas in conclusion are good…but need logical arrangement…

                    You have good ideas regarding topic…but need to work on presentation…Answer should be in proper format with ideas arranged in flow manner without posing any obstruction in reading…

                    Overall, this answer could be termed as an average one…keep writing…will improve for sure…

                            Hi Isha,
                            -Your answer sheet looks more like a drawing paper…avoid too much of drawings, diagrams and flowcharts…answer should be written in paragraphs…You can include points in bullet form but certainly not in mindmaps…
                            -Points in way forward is correct…
                            -Conclusion seems to be too long…though ideas here are good…need to articulate language in order to incorporate more points in lesser words…Avoid too much of underlining…
                            -Overall, there is good content in your answer…but need to work in presentation as well as arrangement of ideas…

                            Keep writing…will improve for sure….

                                    -Please write answer on proper sheet of paper…leaving margin on both the edges of page…
                                    -There is no introduction in your answer…because the intro should be written in para…the points of main body can be in bullet form…
                                    -Points need more clarity…under Zamindars…due to fixed nature of revenue there were security (what do you mean by happy-brings colloquial tone)…also the rest two points are very general…
                                    -You have brought too general points…at least some specificity should have to be in points…
                                    -Conclusion seems okay…but it should be more in the tone of points mentioned in main body…

                                    Overall, this answer can be termed as average one…more specific points need to bring…keep writing…will improve for sure…

                                        -Your introduction seems to be okay…however, the relevancy of points gets decreased in further points…the entire points revolve around expertise and specialists only…need to think more beyond this…
                                        -Points are too general…there is no criticisms to the points…bring some specificity…like…LE will increase competition, bring new ideas, solve deficit of officers, bring expertise, Push the IAS out of their comfort zone and challenge them…etc…
                                        -Also some points of criticism…like…Political will, vested interest of the person getting selected, cherry picking post, political nexus influence, and it will affect the policy of reservation most…etc…

                                        Overall, the answer is general…need to bring some specificity…keep writing will improve for sure…
