Rahul Gandhi suggests an idea for implementation of social sector schemes

Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi is one of the fewer leaders in India who do believe in going the extra mile to achieve the target. He is always keen to receive innovative ideas from anyone and anywhere irrespective of wherever it originate. Recently he got a tremendous applause from almost every quarter for his ideas of examining the possibility to outsource the UPA’s flagship programme to private entities on a commission basis.

Rahul Gandhi has thrown up an interesting idea — to examine if implementation of the UPA’s flagship social sector programmes could be implemented on a commission basis. This is because of his conviction that less than 15 per cent of funds allocated under Central schemes actually reach the real beneficiaries now.

Over two decades back his late father Rajiv Gandhi, then India’s Prime Minister, had openly said that around 15 paise of every rupee allocated by the Centre actually reached those for whom the money was intended.

In a recent meeting with the members of the newly-constituted National Advisory Council, headed by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi talked about his innovative idea and surprised all of them with his up to date information on the various subjects he raised on the meeting. On the condition of anonymity, an NAC member told “After the first meeting of the council, we had a session with Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, where we discussed issues pertaining to implementation of all the cherished pro-poor schemes. All of us agreed that there are many bottlenecks leading to leakages in delivering goods to the people through government agencies.”

Taking the discussion forward, he said, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi floated an idea which set many members thinking. “The idea was to consider outsourcing implementation of pro-poor schemes to concerned players on a commission basis.” Mr Gandhi favoured giving some concessions to the concerned party who has real interest for the betterment of society bringing the benefit of social sector scheme into the life of common man, he added.

“He put his argument that if public infrastructure projects can be executed by private corporates on the basis of concessions, why can’t social sector schemes of the government be given to them on a commission of 15 per cent of the total allocated funds for each scheme. His intention is to see that the maximum amount reaches the beneficiaries,” the member said.

Another member who was part of the deliberations, however, said that while the idea might be “noble” and “innovative”, it was bound to face resistance from the state apparatus, which now implements the schemes. “Lakhs of officials are involved in the process with their vested interests. It has to be seen if the politics of the day would allow this idea to become a reality,” he said. “However, we can enter into a debate on the issue, dissecting the pros and cons of handing over implementation of schemes to private entities.”

Here the main purpose of the idea is not to bring private entities into the social sector scheme that is hitherto the only domain of government, but to reach the benefits of the schemes to the real beneficiaries for whom the schemes are intended. Since the poor people have been at the receiving end and getting only 15% of the allocated funds, this very idea that Rahul Gandhi put forth before the members of the NAC can go a long way in implementing the UPA’s flagship social sector programmes, which could, in turn, result in changing the whole scenarios. Thus, setting the wheal of development rolling every nook and corner, which could lead the gap of two Indias become narrower.

Verbal Ability Test (40 Questions in 35 minutes)

Directions for Questions 1-5: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

It all started at the beginning of fifth grade. At first, Carmen wasn’t really sure what was happening. In class, she had to squint to see the blackboard clearly. She had to do the same thing when she read street signs, or when she watched a movie. As the fuzziness got worse, she became more and more worried. It was important for her to see the notes and homework assignments the teacher put on the board.

It wasn’t long before Carmen found herself squinting all the time, but she didn’t want anyone to know that she was having a problem seeing. In class, she asked for a desk that was closer to the blackboard. One day, her teacher said, "Carmen, are you all right? I’ve noticed you squinting a lot. Are you having trouble seeing the board?"

Carmen shook her head. "I’m fine, Mrs. Cruz," she said, but she knew she couldn’t pretend much longer.

At home, she had to sit closer and closer to the television in order to see the picture. Her mother noticed her squinting as she watched her favorite shows, and she began to get suspicious.

"Tomorrow I’m calling the eye doctor to set up an appointment for you," she said firmly. Carmen protested, but her mother’s mind was made up.

Three days later, Carmen had new glasses and instructions from her doctor to wear them all the time. Carmen frowned in the car the whole way home. "All of the kids at school will think I’m a nerd," she said. Her mother smiled and shook her head. "You look just as beautiful with those glasses on as you do without them," she said. But Carmen didn’t believe her. The next day, Carmen kept the glasses in her pocket as she walked into the schoolyard. She avoided her friends and stood alone, feeling miserable. Suddenly, she heard her friend Theresa shout. Carmen ran over to the other girls. "What’s wrong?" she asked. "My silver ring is gone!" Theresa cried. "My sister sent it to me from California. It’s very special and I can’t lose it!"
Carmen could tell that Theresa was very upset. They all looked for the ring in the grassy area of the playground.

Carmen realized that she could search better if she could see better. She took the glasses out of her pocket and put them on. The objects and people around her came into sharp focus. She caught her breath. Everything looked so different! So clear! She looked down at the ground and a glimmer of silver caught her eye. It was the ring. "Here it is," she shouted. "I’ve found it!" She handed it to Theresa, and Theresa slipped the ring back on her finger.

"Thanks Carmen," she said. "I never thought we'd find it." She paused. "Hey, I didn’t know you wore glasses. They look great!" Carmen had forgotten that she was wearing the new glasses. "Thanks," she replied shyly. As they walked back toward the school building, two more girls from her class complimented her glasses. Carmen smiled. "Maybe wearing glasses won’t be so bad after all," she thought.

Directions for Questions 6-10: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

Primitive man was probably more concerned with fire as a source of warmth and as a means of cooking food than as a source of light. Before he discovered less laborious ways of making fire, he had to preserve it, and whenever he went on a journey he carried a firebrand with him. His discovery that the firebrand, from which the torch may very well have developed, could be used for illumination was probably incidental to the primary purpose of preserving a flame.

Lamps, too, probably developed by accident. Early man may have had his first conception of a lamp while watching a twig or fibre burning in the molten fat dropped from a roasting carcass.

Such lamps, which are made of hollowed stones or sea shells, have persisted in identical from up to quite recent times.

The yearly festival was close at hand. The store room was packed with silk fabrics. gold ornaments, clay bowls full of sweet curd and platefuls of sweetmeats. The orders had been placed with shops well in advance. The mother was sending out gifts to everyone.

The eldest son, a government servant, lived with his wife and children in far off lands. The second son had left home at an early age. As a merchant he travelled all over the world. The other sons had split up over petty squabbles, and they now lived in homes of their own. The relatives were spread all across the world. They rarely visited. The youngest son, left in the company of a servant, was soon bored and stood at the door all day long, waiting and watching. His mother, thrilled and excited, loaded the presents on trays and plates, covered them with colourful kerchiefs, and sent them off with maids and servants. The neighbours looked on.

The day came to an end. All the presents had been sent off.

Company Profile

IIT started functioning from 5, Esplanade East, Calcutta and very soon shifted to Hijli in Sept. 1950. The present name 'Indian Institute of Technology' was adopted before the formal inauguration of the Institute on August 18, 1951, by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. IIT Kharagpur started its journey in the old Hijli Detention Camp where some of our great freedom fighters toiled and sacrificed their lives for the independence of our country.


Aptitude and ability tests are designed to assess your logical reasoning or thinking performance. They consist of multiple choice questions and are administered under exam conditions

Aptitude and ability tests can be classified as speed tests or power test. Some of them contain only one type of question (for example, verbal ability, numeric reasoning ability etc) while others are made up of different types of question.

Types of question can be classified as follows:---

Verbal Ability - Includes spelling, grammar, ability to understand analogies and follow detailed written instructions.

Numeric Ability - Includes basic arithmetic, number sequences and simple mathematics.
Abstract Reasoning - Measures your ability to identify the underlying logic of a pattern and then determine the solution.

Spatial Ability - Measures your ability to manipulate shapes in two dimensions or to visualize three-dimensional objects presented as two-dimensional pictures.
Mechanical Reasoning - Designed to assess your knowledge of physical and mechanical principles.

Fault Diagnosis - These tests are used to select technical personnel who need to be able to find and repair faults in electronic and mechanical systems.

Data Checking - Measure how quickly and accurately errors can be detected in data and are used to select candidates for clerical and data input jobs.
