Ground water is an essential capital as well as asset for the country as whole it has gone into the acute stress because of following reasons.

GREEN REVOLUTION: Areas of Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh  has the benefit of input intensive crops and much stress has resulted on the ground water because of over irrigation through tube wells.

RAPID URBANISATION: Rapid urbanization has resulted into stress off over the current cities because it is accumulating more than that of its potential and water is prime element  and essential need which had to bear the stress most.

AQUAFIER NOT RECHARGING: The boost to the construction activities in an un-sustainable way is big hindrance to rainwater to percolate into the ground, the loss of percolation intensity to ground water has laid to decrease in the reduction of ground water level.

INDUSTRIES: Boost to water intensive industries (beverages-mineral water, textile leather) has lead to the over consumption of water and as consequence one gain the decrease of the water level.

MEASURES TO CHECK GROUND WATER EXPLOITATION AND RECHARGE AQUAFIERS: Rain water harvesting, proper infrastructure keeping the provision of percolation of water into the ground.

DRIP AND SPRINKLE AGRICATION: This will help in increasing the production at less input.

WELL OFF” CAN BE CHARGED: In urban areas “well off” can be charged higher rates this will help in minimizing the wastage.

AWARENESS PROGRAMME: Awareness drive with the help of local administration emphasizing on the judicial term of water.

What is process job in bihar block

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no. atleast so i check the result.

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
