Model answers are available below in PDF format and can be used for personal evaluation.


Question 1:

You are CEO of Zila Parishad. One day, you go to inspect a gram sabha meeting in a village which is headed by a female sarpanch. But, you find her absent in the meeting. When you ask the villagers about it, they tell you that

When you ask the villagers about it, they tell you that it is her husband who takes all decisions and attends the meetings. You decide to have a meeting with her. When you meet her, she tells that her husband does most of the things as he thinks that being a female she can not handle the work of being a headwoman.

Do you think the real motive of the government behind providing reservation to women in Panchayats has failed? Is the husband’s interference in this case justified? What should she do to convince her husband that she can handle the work herself?

Question 2:

You are the director of an NGO which looks after setting up Anganwadi centers for small children and providing MDM in schools. Your organization had received a grant of twenty lakhs to set up Anganwadi centers. You make all efforts to identify areas where the Anganwadi centers can be established. However, even after a year, you are still not able to set up the required number of Aganwadis to spend the allotted amount. Now the time is around the corner to submit the accounts for the grant sanctioned and he has been able to spend only ten lakhs out of twenty lakhs allocated to you.
When you set to compile the records to account for the spending what are possible temptations you will face. What course of action would you take?
