In order to integrate the lower strata (real beneficiaries) to the democratic set up, the constitution amendment 73rd (panchayat) and 74th (municipalities) as per the BALWANT RAI MEHTA COMMITTEE have been made.

Meanwhile, the amendments provided for the decentralization of power and decision making aspect to the lower strata, it ensures the commendable participation of women in the panchayat and municipalities. As per the provision one third representations shall be given exclusively to women.

However, there is significant increase in head count of women members in the body of the panchayats and municipalities but not in real scenario as per in most of the cases. 

Here below are some flows which clearly explains the true obstruction for the real representation to women in local governance.
  • Panchayat Pati: Dummy women candidate got elected as because the real decision making power is being mentored by their husbands, the concerned women is just used as a rubber stamp.
  • Lack of Awareness Level :Lucuma is that there is still low level of awareness amongst the women candidates they are not aware of their rights, role and duty to be performed as a leader.
  • Lack of Education And Exposure : The women candidate have generally low level of education and since most of them are generally confined to household amenities the lack, the exposure of outer world as such.
Well the above barriers can be overcome with the spread of knowledge ,education and proper training to them and in overall true sense the women participation will be authenticated.

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!!

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.
