Shouldn't the answer be 'Both 1 and 2' Because the land mass is homogeneous and less, there is less friction which in turn result in higher Coriolis force???? (Slide 6,7)
DBOT(Design build operate & transfer) Mode is of 2 types:- 1. DBOT Annuity model - Under BOT annuity, a developer builds the highway, operates it for a specified duration(mentioned in contract e.g. 5 yrs or 10 yrs) and transfers it back to the government. The government starts paying rest of the amount to the developer after the launch of commercial operation of the project. Payment will be made on a six month basis. 2. DBOT Toll model: In this toll based BOT model, a road developer constructs the road and he is allowed to recover his investment(total) through toll collection. This toll collection will be over a period of nearly 30 years in most cases. There is no government payment to the developer as he earns his money invested from tolls.
Hybrid Annuity based PPP mode:- In hard core PPP projects all the burdens(financial & non-financial) are taken by private companies. So they are facing a lot of problems. They need to raise fund through shares/equity & bank loans etc. They are unable to procure land, forest clearance on time & thus increasing NPAs due to delay in project. So Govt is encouraging PPP through Hybrid Annuity based PPP mode in which govt will pay 40% of total amount in the beginning of project in installments & rest after completion & commissioning.
SC says seeking votes on religious , cast ,class, community etc basis is a corrupt act. Bt foundation of BSP is based on cast Then why do it not termed as corrupt body or illegal?

Course is really awesome.. But I think some more informations are needed regarding every topics... If I compare it with Insights On India daily current affairs, then there are some info missing in these videos.. but some news are also not there in Insights daily current affairs as well.. For example- University of Pune is now renamed as Savitribai Phule University.. This info is missing in ur video.. But it is there in Insights CA. Yet I will say ur videos are more helpful than other such magazines.. Just one thing make sure that there should not be any missing part/info if the question comes from the topics u covered.. :-)
Hello sir..needed some guidance regarding current affairs..My strategy is to read current magzines of vision and vajiram along with your Videos and reading selected articles from Hindu and Indian express.I have decided not to read the Hindu for other news.Is this right and enough?
