Correction required - Coast guard does not fall under paramilitary. it falls under defence force of the country. Central Armed Police Forces were formerly referred as Paramilitary Forces however from March 2011, Ministry of Home Affairs adopted a uniform nomenclature of Central Armed Police Forces for five forces namely CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF, SSB to avoid confusion. SFF and Assam riles are however called paramilitary and are under army/ib/raw administrative control.

  6. World leaders greeted the new Millennium with the Millennium Declaration adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2000. The 187 heads of state and government who attended theMillennium Summit that month also adopted the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) emerging from the declaration as a blueprint for reducing poverty and improving people's lives across the globe. All 193 UN member states, including India, have since pledged.to work towards meeting these goals in stages during the period up to 2015. The eight goals, as well as the specific targets and indicators included under each, have come under legitimate criticism from several quarters for their many limitations. One of the serious shortcomings of the MDGs, for example, is the compartmentalization of women within the goals and the narrow vision of gender concerns in the context of development reflected in the targets and indicators listed under each goal


  7. Two of the goals are gender specific: one, promote gender equality and empower women (MDG 3), and two, improve maternal health (MDG 5). But clearly, as the Millennium Declaration and several other UN agreements acknowledge, the other six - eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; achieve universal primary education; reduce child mortality; combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases; ensure environmental sustainability; and create a global partnership for development - are also intimately linked to gender equality and women empowerment.


  8. The targets and indicators highlighted under the gender specific goals further reduce their scope. For example. The only target listed under MDG 3 suggests that gender equality and women empowerment can be achieved simply by eliminating gender disparity in primary and secondary education (preferably by 2005), and at all levels by 2015. Equally inadequate are the four indicators of equality and empowerment associated with this goal: the ratio of girls to boys at each educational level, the sex-ratio in literary among 75-24 year olds, women's share in wage employment in the non-agricultural sector, and the proportion of seats held by women in the national Parliament.


  9. India's Country Report 2005 on the MDGs acknowledges not only that the goals are interlinked but that gender integration of gender related targets within each of the goals and, by the same token, achievement of all the goals is critically dependent upon the attainment of gender equality. The report also mentions that India's Tenth Five Year Plan (2002 - 2007) has not only taken note of the MDGs and included a number of targets to be achieved during the Plan period, but that these internal targets generally aim higher than the internationally agreed upon ones. This is just as well, since India's share of global responsibility towards meeting the MDGs is fairly substantial. The country has the dubious distinction of accounting for a quarter of all maternal deaths and nearly a quarter of all deaths of children under five years across the globe, 34% of the world's underweight children, and 28% of the world's poor who live on less than US $1 per day.


  10. Q. 1 Which of the following best describes an 'indicator' as described in the passage? [A] A device to attract attention [B] A device providing specific information on the state or condition of something [C] A chemical compound that changes colour and structure when exposed to certain conditions [D] All of the above


  11. Q. 2 This question consists of an Assertion (A) and a Reason (R). Indicate your answer by selecting the correct alternative. Assertion (A): India needs to take quick action on the MDG relating to eradicating extreme poverty and hunger. Reason (R): It has 28% of the world's poor. [A] Both A and R are right and R is the correct explanation for A [B] Both A and R are right but R is not the correct explanation for A [C] A is right but R is wrong [D] A is wrong but R is right


  12. Q. 3 Consider the following statements about the MDGs 1. They were adopted by the UN General Assembly for achievement by the year 2015. 2. Only two of the goals are gender specific. 3. The targets and indicators of all the goals reduce their scope. Which of the above statements are incorrect, as given in the passage? [A] Only 3 [B] 1 and 2 [C] 1 and 3 [D] All of these


  13. Q. 4 Consider the following statements regarding India's Country Report 2005 1. It says that India has a significant share of global responsibility for meeting the MDG targets. 2. It says that attainment of equality of the sexes is critical to the achievement of the MDG goals. 3. It says that India's Tenth Five Year Plan includes targets for all the MDGs during the duration of the plan. 4. It says that the goals are related to each other. Which of the above statements are not true, as per the passage? IA] Only 1 [B] 2 and 4 [C] 1 and 3 [D] All of these


  14. Q. 5 Which of the following cannot be considered as an indicator for MDG 3, as per the passage? [A] The ratio of 15 to 24 year old literate females to males in the same age group IBI The proportion of women to men who are paid workers in non-agricultural occupations [C] The ratio of girls to boys in primary and secondary education [D] GDP Growth per Employed Person


  15. Q. 5 Which of the following cannot be considered as an indicator for MDG 3, as per the passage? [A] The ratio of 15 to 24 year old literate females to males in the same age group IBI The proportion of women to men who are paid workers in non-agricultural occupations [C] The ratio of girls to boys in primary and secondary education [D] GDP Growth per Employed Person
