Syllabus for Paper-2:     



Current events of national and international importance: - On Current Events of National and International importance, candidates will be expected to have knowledge about them.


History of India and Indian National Movement: - In History emphasis should be on broad understanding social, economic and political aspects of Indian history. In the Indian National Movement, the candidates are expected to have synoptic view of nature and character of the freedom movement, growth of nationalism and attainment of Independence.


Indian and world Geography – Physical, Social, Economic geography of India and the World: - In World Geography only general understanding of the subject will be expected. Questions on the Geography of India will relate to Physical, Social &Economic Geography of India.

Indian Polity and Governance – Constitution, Political System, Panchayati Raj, Public Policy, Rights Issues, etc:- In Indian Polity, Economic and Culture, questions will test knowledge of country’s political system including Panchayati Raj and Community Development, broad features of Economic policy in India and Indian Culture.


Economic and Social Development – Sustainable Development, Poverty, Inclusion, Demographics, Social Sector initiatives, etc:- The candidates will be tested with respect to problems and relationship between Population, Environment and Urbanisation.

General issues on Environmental ecology, Bio-diversity and Climate Change – that do not require subject specialization. General awareness of the subject is expected from candidates.

General Science: – Questions on General Science will cover general appreciation and understanding of Science including matters of every day observation and experience, as may be expected of a well-educated person, who has not made a special study of any scientific discipline.

Note: - Candidate are expected to have general awareness about the above subjects with special reference to Uttar Pradesh.
