It was adopted during the 1950s and 60s when laws were passed to form Panchayats in various states. The panchayats receive funds from local body grants, funds for implementation of centrally-sponsored schemes & funds released by the state governments. On 24 April 1993, the Constitutional Act, 1992 was come into force to give constitutional status to the Panchayati Raj institutions.

Sometimes, we work really hard studying our lessons but still, we only get an average result. In order to perform best in your examinations, there should be a lot of preparation. The amount of preparation will determine how confident you will be when taking your exams. Different people have different strategies on their exam preparations. Some people only studies moments before the test, while others study months before it. No matter which way suits for you, you have to make sure that you do it effectively. The best way of studying is the willingness to learn. When one has the amount of determination and interest with the given subject, he will be eager in studying it. For example, if we do not like a math subject perhaps, we will always have low grades on it. Why? Because we do not find it interesting, and that is why we just take it for granted. Remember that if you take time to learn something you do not like, you will find interest from it after some time. If you are willing to study it and offer more time for that certain subject, you will not find difficulty when taking an exam. The best technique some students do when they need to prepare for examinations is to study it from the time it was discussed in class. This means that the moment it has been taught, always think of it and remember the details. It will be best if you study all the week’s lessons every end of the week. Do that habit each passing week so you are stocking knowledge into your mind one at a time. People who studies only before the exam will find a lot of difficulty because they are cramming all the lessons and try recalling them all at once. This can really stress the mind, and you even might find difficulty trying to remember them all. But study them week after week; it will be just an exercise for you. Just like when we have a new regular task. For example, if we are told to do the groceries every week, we need to do it once a week and for the coming weeks. Each week, if we come to that particular day of doing the grocery, we do not have to remember it, because it is already programmed in our minds that there s a task we should do, and it is doing the grocery. If you put to your mind a task and decide to do it every specific time, then you do not have to stress it out when doing it.
The government will soon come out with a detailed syllabus of the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) — a new scheme of examination, which is to replace the existing Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination from 2011.

The Centre had in March approved the proposal for introduction of CSAT in place of CS (Preliminary) from next year, and subsequently asked the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to work out its syllabus

Jinnah : India Partition Independence Author: Jaswant Singh Publisher: Rupa publications Format: hardbound No of pages: 674 Lord Mountbatten: I tried every trick I could play… to shake Jinnah’s resolve.Nothing wouldmove him from his consuming determination to realise the dream of Pakistan…The date I chose (for Independence) came out of the blue. I was determined to show I was master of the whole event. The partition of India 1947 some call it vivisection as Gandhi had has without doubt been the most wounding trauma of the twentieth century. It has seared the psyche of four plus generations of this subcontinent. Why did this partition take place at all? Who was/is responsible — Jinnah? The Congress party? Or the British? Jaswant Singh attempts to find an answer his answer for there can perhaps not be a definitive answer yet the author searches. Jinnah’s political journey began as ‘an ambassador of Hindu-Muslim Unity’ (Gopal Krishna Gokhale) yet ended with his becoming the ‘sole spokesman’ of Muslims in India; the creator of Pakistan the Quaid-e-Azam: How and why did this transformation take place? No Indian or Pakistani politician/Member of Parliament has ventured an analytical political biography of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah about whom views necessarily get divided as being either hagiographical or additional demonology. The book attempts an objective evaluation. Jaswant Singh’s experience as a minister responsible for the conduct of India’s foreign policy managing the country’s defence (concurrently) had been uniformly challenging (Lahore Peace Process; betrayed at Kargil; Kandahar; The Agra Peace Summit; the attack on Jammu and Kashmir Assembly and the Indian Parliament; coercive diplomacy of 2002; the peace overtures reinitiated in April 2003). He asks where and when did this questionable thesis of ‘Muslims as a separate nation’ first originate and lead the Indian sub-continent to? And where did it drag Pakistan to? Why then a Bangladesh? Also what now of Pakistan? Where is it headed? This book is special; it stands apart for it is authored by a practitioner of policy an innovator of policies in search of definitive answers. Those burning ‘whys’ of the last sixty-two years which bedevil us still. Jaswant Singh believes that for the return of lasting peace in South Asia there is no alternative but to first understand what made it ‘abandon’ us in the first place. Until we do that a minimum a must we will never be able to persuade peace to return.
