Changing pattern of civil services examination to come up in Rajya Sabha

THE questions related to changes in civil services examination would come up in Parliament. An unstarred question on changes in civil services examination has been admitted for Rajya Sabha on November 18, 2010.
In a major step to change the civil services pattern, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has recently announced a new syllabus for the preliminary examinations, replacing the optional subject with an aptitude test. But many students are not happy as they find the new syllabus much tougher than the earlier one.
The other questions that would come up in Rajya Sabha on the same day include definition of good governance, extension of senior officers, amendment of the RTI Act, grade pay for deputy secretary and under secretary and recommendations to make RTI more effective, just to name a few.
Two major starred questions where minister would answer in Parliament are on reserved posts for ST, SC and OBCs, and increased corruption in the country.

Global Window: Finland companies complain of Russia’s bureaucratic bottlenecks
Finland companies that are doing good business with Russia by increasing their exports have now complained bureaucratic bottlenecks in Russia. According to a survey by Finnish-Russian Chamber of Commerce, the biggest challenges for Finnish companies are still the customs, as well as bureaucracy in general and the shortage of qualified personnel.
Finnish companies are however optimistic. About 70% of them believe that their exports to Russia will increase over the next six months as the Russian economy is set to grow at five percent in the coming years.

  1. The reserved posts should be abolished for any catagories. There should be same treatment for all the people in India. Corruption have to minimise or else no proper development will happen.
