We hope this video has given you some insights about NavIc India's answer to GPS. If you would like to know more here is the reference book used: Advanced Surveying: Total Station, GPS, GIS & Remote Sensing by Pearson ------------------------------ Amazon: https://amzn.to/2L28frd Download our app : https://www.exambin.com/app Learn online : https://www.exambin.com/learn In this lesson you will be knowing about NavIC – India’s answer to GPS systems of America. Navic is a gps alternative which is otherwise known as gps of india. Navic india gps, navic india are some the key terms related to the project t. Navic is launched by isro. 7 satellite navic is using. navik gps system is indian regional navigational satellite system (irnss), navic full form is Navigation With Indian Constellation, you can know how to use navic in few months when, navic launch date is announced, isro navic, indian gps name. navic cost is reavealed by isro. navic coverage will be around india. So far we are dependent on GPS that is an American initiative. Now India is all set to unveil its own 'desi' version of GPS titled 'NavlC' now for the country and some surrounding areas. Here's all about it. What is NavIC? • NavlC - is an acronym for 'Navigation with Indian Constellation'. • It is an operational name for Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) • The name is chosen by PM Narendra Modi, after the IRNSS-1G satellite was launched. • It will provide users with accurate information about the positions and is set to will be ready for the public use by early 2018. Cost and Timeline: The project cost Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) an amount of Rs. 1,420 crore and was completed with the successful launch of IRNSS-1G satellite on April 28, 2016. ISRO’s Project Cost is Rs.1420 Crore 7th Satellite IRNSS-1G launched on April 28, 2016. IRNSS-1G was the last among the seven satellites in constellation which helps the NavlC positioning. Though, the 'desi' positioning system is operational now, it is not ready for public use as of yet. What is the difference between NavIC and GPS? India, till now, using the American GPS, which started in 1973. There have been hurdles when we use a third country’s resource one fine example is The United States had denied providing GPS information to India in 1999, during the Kargil War. With the indigenous positioning system, India will also be among the countries that have their own positioning systems like America's GPS, European Union's Galileo and Russia's GLONASS. What areas it is going to cover? Space Applications Centre director, Tapan Misra said that, "NavIC will be covering the entire country, Indian Ocean and its surroundings. In the west, the system will have a reach till eastern parts of Arabian peninsula and in the east, some parts of China. In the south, NavIC signals will work till Malaysia." On the other hand, China is also building its own Beidou Navigation Satellite System, which is not operational yet. Is there a technical difference from GPS? NavlC covers India and its surroundings with seven satellites in the constellation, while America's GPS uses 24 satellites but provides the positioning service across the world. NavIC will be providing standard positioning service to all users with a position accuracy of 5 metre. The present GPS of US has a position accuracy of 20-30 metre. How is it superior from others? SAC director Tapan Misra has told that since NavIC is not dependent on any model to find the frequency error it will be more accurate than GPS." Misra also stressed on the fact that NavlC is being made ready for common public as well with the development of digital chips, which can be used in mobiles and handsets. Release: It's just a matter of time Mr Misra has added that "Academic institutions doing ground verification and data calibration for NavIC to find its accuracy. For the technology to be used in in mobiles and other electronic gadgets the Space application centre have developed digital chips. The Indian Army Force (IAF) has already made receivers compatible with NavlC. The military service will supposedly use the positioning system to track aircrafts and deliver missiles. Future Uses India's own positioning system would aid in various things ranging from disaster management to terrestrial, aerial and marine navigation. For drivers on the road it will provide visual and voice navigation to help with directions. It can also be used with mobile phones like how GPS is used, and will help users with tracking and locating in unknown areas.

We will be looking at some important rock paintings. Cave paintings in India can be found in many places like MP, TN. History of cave paintings is more than a lakh years old. Famous cave paintings is discussed here. Prehistoric rock paintings in India are examples of Indian old arts. Historic arts represented in Historic cave paintings. Before getting started, let us know whether this series of videos is helpful to you or not in the comments below. The distant past when there was no paper or language or the written word, and hence no books or written document, is called as the Prehistoric period. Piecing together of information deduced from old tools, habitat, bones of both animals and human beings and drawings on the cave walls scholars have constructed fairly accurate knowledge about what happened and how people lived in prehistoric times. Paintings and drawings were the oldest art forms practised by human beings to express themselves using the cave wall as their canvas. • Period I, Upper Palaeolithic; • Period II, Mesolithic; • Period III, Chalcolithic. Paleolithic Age Art • The Paleolithic period can be divided into three phases: (1) Lower Palaeolithic (2.5 million years-100,000 years ago) (2) Middle Palaeolithic (300,000-30,000 years ago) (3) Upper Palaeolithic (40,000-10,000 years ago) • We did not get any evidence of paintings from lower or middle paleolithic age yet. • In the Upper Palaeolithic period, we see a proliferation of artistic activities. • Subjects of early works confined to simple human figures, human activities, geometric designs, and symbols. • First discovery of rock paintings in the world was made in India (1867-68) by an Archaeologist, Archibold Carlleyle, twelve years before the discovery of Altamira in Spain (site of oldest rock paintings in the world). • There are two major sites of excellent prehistoric paintings in India: (1) Bhimbetka Caves, Foothills of Vindhya, Madhya Pradesh. (2) Jogimara caves, Amarnath, Madhya Pradesh. Mesolithic period Art: • The largest number of paintings belongs to this period. • Themes multiply but the paintings are small in size. • Hunting scenes predominate • Hunters in groups armed with barbed spears pointed sticks, arrows, and bows. • Trap and snares used to catch animals can be seen in some paintings. • In some pictures, animals are chasing men and in others, they are being chased by hunter men. • Animals painted in a naturalistic style and humans were depicted in a stylistic manner. • Women are painted both in nude and clothed. • Young and old equally find places in paintings. • Community dances provide a common theme. • Sort of family life can be seen in some paintings (woman, man, and children). Chalcolithic period Art: • Copper age art. • The paintings of this period reveal the association, contact and mutual exchange of requirements of the cave dwellers of this area with settled agricultural communities of the Malwa Plateau. • Pottery and metal tools can be seen in paintings. • Similarities with rock paintings: Common motifs (designs/patterns like cross-hatched squares, lattices etc) • The difference with rock paintings: Vividness and vitality of older periods disappear from these paintings. Some of the general features of Prehistoric paintings (based on the study of Bhimbetka paintings) • Used colours, including various shades of white, yellow, orange, red ochre, purple, brown, green and black. • But white and red were their favourite. • The paints used by these people were made by grinding various coloured rocks. • They got red from hematite (Geru in India). • Green prepared from a green coloured rock called Chalcedony. • White was probably from Limestone. • Some sticky substances such as animal fat or gum or resin from trees may be used while mixing rock powder with water. • Brushes were made of plant fiber. • It is believed that these colours remained thousands of years because of the chemical reaction of the oxide present on the surface of rocks. • Paintings were found both from occupied and unoccupied caves. • It means that these paintings were sometimes used also as some sort of signals, warnings etc. • Many rock art sites of the new painting are painted on top of an older painting. • In Bhimbetka, we can see nearly 20 layers of paintings, one on top of another.

The victory of British East India company in the battle is one of the most important event in Indian History. • The East India Company had established factories at Surat, Madras, Bombay and Calcutta in the 17th century. • Mughal Emperor Farrukhsiyar had issued a Farman in 1717 granting the Company rights to reside and trade freely within the Mughal Empire. The Company was also accorded the right to issue dastaks for movement of goods. This right was misused by the Company officials. • When Alivardi Khan, grandfather of Siraj-ud-daulah became the Nawab of Bengal, he took a stricter stance against the Company. • When Siraj succeeded him as the Nawab, he ordered the company to stop their fortification activities since they didn’t have the permission to do so. But the company carried on with their fortifications. • This led the Nawab to attack the British station in Calcutta in which they were beaten by the Nawab’s 3000-strong army. • Calcutta was occupied by the Nawab’s forces in June 1756 and the prisoners were kept in a dungeon in Fort William. This incident is called the Black Hole of Calcutta since only a handful of the prisoners survived the captivity where over hundred people were kept in a cell meant for about 6 people. • Fort William and other British establishments in Calcutta had fallen into the hands of the Nawab. • When news of this reached Madras in August, they sent troops under Colonel Robert Clive to win back the Bengal establishments of the British. On the bank of the river Bhagirathi, in the mango groves of a place named Plassey, the opposite forces met each other.The date was the 23rd of June in the year 1757. On that day was fought the Battle of Plassey between the armies of Siraj-ud-daulah and Clive. There could be no comparison between the respective forces of the enemies.

The dumbfounded Nawab sent that order to the fighting general. But Mohan Lal considered it a wrong order and continued to fight, Mohan Lal at length returned to Siraj. That was exactly what Mir Jafar wanted.When the fighting soldiers saw their leader withdrawing from the front, they lost heart and fled in all directions. In a moment’s time, the course of the battle turned for the worst. The Nawab realized his mistake. He could also know what Mir Jafar was. Amid terrible attack from Clive’s side, and with his army in panic, Siraj-ud-daulah fled from the field for life. With that ended the Battle of Plassey. With that, too, was decided the fate of Bengal and of India.In the mango groves of Plassey was laid the foundation of the British Empire in India. exams will ask questions based on modern history of india for indian history for upsc, Battle of Buxar Battle fought Year: 22 October 1764 Battlefield: Buxar Winner: Sir Hector Munro commander of British forces Loser: Nawab Mir Qasim, Shah Alam II and Shuja-ud-Daula The Battle of Buxar was fought between the British Army and the combined forces of Mughal Emperor Shah Alam II, Mir Qasim (Nawab of Bengal) and Shuja-ud-daula (Nawab of Awadh).

Arrival of Europeans to India | Why Europeans arrived to India | Foundation of British Empire in Ind
Download our app : http://examb.in/app First European contacts. In 1497, the Portuguese king Manuel I sent the navigator Vasco da Gama to find a sea route to India via the Cape of Good Hope at the southern tip of Africa. Da Gama reached the port of Calicut on the Malabar coast on June 18, 1498, and his fleet returned to Lisbon, Portugal, in 1499. The Venetians were Europe's main traders in Asian spices, which they bought in Egypt.The Portuguese set up a trading empire in the Indian Ocean, capturing and fortifying all the leading trading ports. They controlled the major sea routes between India, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. The Portuguese made Goa their capital in India. The city became an important European settlement. The Portuguese supremacy in the Indian Ocean lasted for just over a hundred years. East India companies. The British East India Company was founded in 1600. The Dutch East India Company was formally incorporated two years later, although the Dutch merchants of Amsterdam had been trading in the Indian Ocean as early as 1595. The arrival of the British and the Dutch in India was unwelcome to the Portuguese, who tried to keep control of the Asian trade. The British East India Company, by contrast, was much weaker. In the 1600's it acquired three independent sovereign settlements in India, Madras (now Chennai), Bombay (now Mumbai), and Calcutta (now Kolkata), and each grew into substantial trading ports. The ports were all fortified with sea walls and cannon. The British company, like the Dutch, raised a small army of professional soldiers. After 1700, the British East India Company was strong enough to equip a large number of well-armed ships for trading in the Indian Ocean. Rivalry between Britain and France. In the 1720's the French government granted a charter to a French East India Company to trade with India. The French made their headquarters at Pondicherry in southern India. Within 20 years or so the French had become very powerful in India and were competing successfully with the British. The commercial competition between the two companies soon led to political quarrels. In the 1740's the French and British supported rival Indian rulers in internal wars. In 1755 an unexpected blow fell on the British East India Company. The Muslim nawab of Bengal province, Siraj al-Daulah, disagreed with the company over commercial privileges claimed by the British. The nawab led an army against Calcutta, and captured the city. suffocation and heat. The exact number of deaths is disputed, but the so-called Black Hole of Calcutta incident further worsened relations between British and Indians. When the news of the fall of Calcutta reached Madras, the British sent Colonel Robert Clive to Bengal to regain Calcutta. He was also a skilful politician. Clive not only recovered Calcutta, but also led the company's troops to victory at the Battle of Plassey in 1757. Siraj al-Daulah was replaced by a puppet ruler, Foundation of the British Empire in India. Historians regard the year 1757 as the starting point of the British Empire in India, even though large parts of the country remained under the rule of Indian princes. Growth of the East India Company. By 1765, the East India Company had decided to set aside the nominal Mughal governor of Bengal province, the nawab. The company itself became the dewan, or financial controller, holding its office under a farman (proclamation) granted by the Mughal emperor in Delhi. Bengal's prosperous rice agriculture yielded enormous tax revenues to the East India Company. This financial advantage helped the company to raise a large army of professional Indian soldiers, trained and commanded by British officers. From 1772, under the company's first governor general of Bengal, Warren Hastings, the British began to expand toward northern India. Hastings was a skilful diplomat and politician. He contributed much to the success of the East India Company's government in Bengal. But his use of violent methods to suppress Indian opposition, and his treatment of fellow British officials in India, aroused great anger in Britain. Reform of company administration. These corrupt administrative practices were ended by Lord Cornwallis, who was appointed governor general of India in 1786. The British Parliament had passed Acts in 1773 and in 1784 to bring the East India Company under the control of a British government minister. Lord Cornwallis was given the task of reforming British administration in India and of establishing good relations with the Indian princes.

The Anglo Mysore Wars I British Conquest of Mysore
Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app Welcome back to the fifth session on Indian history here we are going to see about anglo mysore wars IAS/UPSC lecture which will be helpful Modern Indian History UPSC First Anglo Mysore War (1767-69): The First Anglo–Mysore War was a conflict in India between the Sultanate of Mysore and the East India Company. The war was instigated in part by the machinations of Asaf Jah II, the Nizam of Hyderabad, who sought to divert the company's resources from attempts to gain control of the Northern Circars. A tripartite alliance was formed against Haider Ali by the Britishers, the Nizam Ali of Hyderabad and the Marathas. Haider Ali bought Marathas and succeeded in breaking the alliance and alluring the Nizam with territorial gains. Together with the Nizam he launched an attack on Arcot and later on the English by appearing at the gates of Madras. The panic-stricken Madras government signed the Treaty of Madras on 4th April 1769, under which basis was mutual restitutition of each other’s territories and a defensive alliance, where the English committed to help Haider in case he was attacked by another power. The Second Anglo Mysore War (1780-84): Mutual distrust between the English and Haider Ali caused the Second Anglo Mysore War. Haider Ali accused the Company of not observing the terms of the defensive treaty when they refused to help him when the Marathas attacked Mysore in 1771. Furthermore, Haider Ali was helped by the French by meeting his military demands. On international front, the outbreak of the American war of independence where French alliance with the American colonists was evident. These developments made Warren Hastings extremely suspicious of Haider Ali’s relations with the French. The , a French settlement which was within Haider’s protection. This led to the formation of an alliance by Haider Ali with the Hyderabad Nizam and the Marathas against the English Company in 1779. The second Anglo Mysore War began in July 1780, when Haider attacked the Carnatic and captured Arcot by defeating an English army under Colonel Baillie. Meanwhile the English, detached the Marathas and Nizam from Haider’s side. After being deserted, Haider was defeated at Porto Novo in 1781. In 1782, Haider died, leaving the task unfinished for his son, Tipu, who continued the war with English for another year. The war ended with the Treaty of Mangalore (March 1784) on the basis of mutual restitution of each other’s territories was agreed. The Third Anglo-Mysore War (1790-92): The third Anglo Mysore War was caused by an attack on Travancore by Tipu, because he had differences with the Raja of Travancore in 1790. The English declared war against Tipu supporting the ruler of Travancore. They were helped by the Maratha and Nizam’s troops under the English army which was led by Cornwallis and marched towards Seringapatam (1792). Tipu offered tough resistance but eventually signed the Treaty of Seringapatam in March 1792 resulting in the surrender of nearly half of Mysore territory to the victorious allies in Third Anglo Mysore War. Tipu also had to pay a war indemnity of over three crores rupees. • The British hence acquired the areas of Baramahal, Dindigul and Malabar • The Marathas gained territory on the Tungabhadra side • The Nizam acquired territories stretching from river Krishna to beyond the Pennar. The Fourth Anglo-Mysore War (1799): The Fourth Anglo–Mysore War was a conflict in South India between the Kingdom of Mysore against the British East India Company and the Hyderabad Deccan in 1798–99. Under Wellesley, the Governor-General of English, it was demanded that Tipu Sultan give up his friendship with the French. In the Fourth War between Anglo-Mysore. Tipu Sultan died. English fought with the Marathas and the Nizam’s support in battlefield along with their own forces from Madras and Bombay converging. In 1799, Seringapatam was taken and Tipu Sultan died fighting. Afterwards, Wellesley restored the Mysore kingdom to the old Wodeyar dynasty, after appropriating large portions of it for distribution among its allies Marathas, Nizam and the Company

The Revolt of 1857 in India - Sepoy Mutiny - First war of Indian Independence
The Revolt of 1857 in India The Indian Rebellion of 1857 was a major, but ultimately unsuccessful, uprising in India from 1857 –58 against the rule of the British East India Company Sepoy Mutiny, the Indian Mutiny, the Great Rebellion, the Revolt of 1857, the Indian Insurrection, and India's First War of Independence. Causes of the Revolt: a. Political Causes: Lord Dalhousie was the Governor-General of India till 1848-1856. Dalhousie through his policies had added considerable territories to the British Empire in India.The policy of annexation reached its climax when he implemented the policy of Doctrine of Lapse and annexed the Indian states on charges of miss-governance and absence of an heir. Dalhousie annexed Satara (1848), Sambhalpur (1850), Jhansi (1853), Nagpur (1853), Jaipur (1849). As part of the Doctrine of Lapse policy, the titles and pensions of some Indian princes were confiscated. b. Economic Causes:The British exploited the economic resources of India to their advantage. India turned into a colonial economy to serve the British capitalist interests. Heavy taxation, evictions, discriminatory tariff policy against Indian products and destruction of traditional handicrafts that hit peasants, artisans and small zamindars. c. Social and Religious Causes:The social legislations on the evils as sati, infanticide, re-marriage of widows, etc. The introduction of English education, the propagation of the work of the Christian missionaries d. Military Causes:The high ranks in the army were exclusively reserved for the Englishmen The immediate cause of the revolt was the introduction of the new Enfield rifle and the greased cartridge. In loading the rifle the sepoy before inserting the cartridge had to bite off its top. Mangal Pandey on 29th March 1857, killed senior officers on parade and started the revolt. Course and Spread of the Revolt: The revolt spread to Berhampur in Bengal. On 24th April 1857 about ninety men of the Native Cavalry stationed at Meerut refused to accept the greased cartridges. On 10th May the revolt started at Meerut and the mutineers after killing some of their officials marched towards Delhi. Delhi: On 12th May Delhi was seized and Bahadur Shah II was proclaimed the emperor of India. Kanpur: Here the revolt was led by Nana Saheb who declared himself the Peshwa and governor of Bahadur Shah. Tantya Tope did most of the fighting. Lucknow: The revolt was led by Hazrat Mahal, the Begum of Awadh Jhansi.After some initial vacillations, Rani Laxmi Bai assumed the leadership of the mutiny. Bareilly: Khan Bahadur Khan proclaimed himself as the Nawab and led the revolt there. The other centers of the revolt were Banaras, Allahabad, Gwalior, and Nasirabad in Rajputana, Indore, Aligarh and Kota. At all these places the sepoys killed the senior officers and other Europeans, in many cases not even sparing women and children However the superior British forces soon suppressed the revolt. Bahadur Shah II proved to be a weak leader 20th September 1857 by John Nicholson. Bahadur Shah was arrested and deported to Rangoon where he died in 1862. The rebels were defeated by General Havelock in Kanpur. At Jhansi Hugh Rose suppressed the revolt and Rani Laxmi Bai died on the battle field. Benaras, Bareilly and Gwalior were also recaptured by British officers. Causes of the Failure: • The revolt was highly localized and restricted to North India. • Scindia of Gwalior, the Holkar of Indore, the Nizam of Hyderabad, the Raja of Jodhpur, the Nawab of Bhopal, the rulers of Patiala, Sindh and Kashmir and the Rana of Nepal provided active support to the British. • The rebels lacked a common cause and had different goals. Nature of the Revolt: Some call it a sepoy mutiny since the initial thrust of the revolt in the form of the cartridge episode was given by the soldiers. Nationalists as V.D. Savarkar opine that the revolt was the first war of independence. They feel that the revolt sparked off the discontent of the Indians towards the foreign rule and Hindus and Muslims participated equally in the revolt and displayed a new bond of unity against the British. Impact of the Revolt: (a) Policy Change: The Queen’s Proclamation of November 1858 announced the policy of the British government to be followed from now on in IndiaThe right of a ruler to adopt a child in the absence of a natural heir was accepted. (b) Administrative Changes:January 1st 1877 Queen Victoria was proclaimed as the Queen Empress of India and the administration of India was transferred from the East India Company to the British Crown. (c) Reorganization of the Army:The army was re-organized to strengthen British control over the country and avert any further rebellions in future. (d) Communal and Racial Bitterness:The revolt of 1857 created a big gap between the different religious communities especially the Hindus and the Muslims as each blamed the other for its failure

Components of Computer System - An Introduction to CPU, I/O Devices  | Computer awareness - Lesson 4
Download our app : https://www.exambin.com/app Learn online : https://www.exambin.com/learn Components of Computer System A computer performs five major functions no matter what size they are of as follows: • Data or Instructions are accepted as input, • Data and Instruction are stored • Processing of data as per the instructions, • Control of all operations inside the computer • Result in the form of output. Based on this Any computer system divided into four basic units; 1, input unit, 2, storage unit 3, central processing unit • Arithmetic logic unit • Control unit 4, output unit Basic Components of Computer Systems Input Unit Data and instructions must enter the computer system before any computation can be performed on the supplied data. Output Unit The job of an output unit is just the reverse of that of an input unit. It supplied information and results of computation to the outside world. Storage Unit The data and instructions that are entered into the computer system through input units have to be stored inside the computer before the actual processing starts.The Storage Unit or the primary / main storage of a computer system is designed to do all these things. Itprovides space for storing data and instructions, space for intermediate results and also space for the final results. Central Processing Unit (CPU) Central Processing Unit The main unit inside the computer is the CPU. This unit is responsible for all events inside the computer. It controls all internal and external devices, performs “Arithmetic and Logical operations”. The control Unit and the Arithmetic and Logic unit of a computer system are jointly known as the Central Processing Unit (CPU). The CPU is the brain of any computer system. Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU) The arithmetic and logic unit (ALU) of a computer system is the place where the actual execution of the instructions take place during the processing operations. All calculations are performed and all comparisons (decisions) are made in the ALU. The data and instructions, stored in the primary storage prior to processing are transferred as and when needed to the ALU where processing takes place. No processing is done in the primary storage unit. Control Unit The control unit directs and controls the activities of the internal and external devices. It interprets the instructions fetched into the computer, determines what data, if any, are needed, where it is stored, where to store the results of the operation, and sends the control signals to the devices involved in the execution of the instructions.

Forest cover in India • According to the India State of Forest Report (ISFR) 2015, the forest area covers 21.34 per cent of the total land area of the country. • The forest area is the area notified and recorded as the forest land irrespective of the existence of trees, while the actual forest cover is the area occupied by forests with canopy. Forest Conservation Forests have an intricate interrelationship with life and environment. These provide numerous direct and indirect advantages to our economy and society. Hence, conservation of forest is of vital importance to the survival and prosperity of humankind. Accordingly, the Government of India proposed to have a nation-wide forest conservation policy, and adopted a forest policy in 1952, which was further modified in 1988. The forest policy aimed at: • bringing 33 per cent of the geographical areas under forest cover; • maintaining environmental stability and to restore forests where ecological balance was disturbed; • conserving the natural heritage of the country, its biological diversity and genetic pool.

16 Mahajanapadas - ancient history of India
Mahajanapadas Budhhist literature AnguttaraNikaya gives a list of 16 great kingdoms or Mahajanapadas in the begining of 6th century B.C. Major reason of the formation of Janapadas was use of Iron tools for agricultural & military purposes. Over a period of time small or weak kingdoms either submitted to stronger rulers or got eliminated. Finally in 6th century BC  Vatsa  Avanti  Magadha  Kosala were only 4 major kingdoms survived: Vatsa The Vatsas or Vamsas are called to be a branch of the Kurus. The Vatsa or Vamsa country corresponded with the territory of modern Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh. It had a monarchical form of government with its capital at Kaushambi. Udayana was the ruler of Vatsa in the 7th century BCE. He was very powerful, warlike and fond of hunting. Initially king Udayana was opposed to Buddhism, but later became a follower of Buddha and made Buddhism the state religion. Kaushambi was a very prosperous city where a large number of wealthy merchants resided. It was the most important centerport of goods and passengers from the north-west and south. Avanti The country of the Avantis was one of the important kingdom of western India and was one of the four great monarchies in India in the post era of Mahavira and Buddha, the other three being Kosala, VatsaandMagadha. Avanti was divided into north and south by the river Narmada. Initially, Mahishmati (Mahissati) was the capital of Southern Avanti, and Ujjain (Sanskrit: Ujjayini) was of northern Avanti, but at the times of Mahavira and Buddha, Ujjaini was the capital of integrated Avanti. The country of Avanti roughly corresponded to modern Malwa, Nimar and adjoining parts of today's Madhya Pradesh. Both Mahishmati and Ujjaini stood on the southern high road called Dakshinapatha which extended from Rajagriha to Pratishthana (modern Paithan). Avanti was an important center of Buddhism.King NandiVardhana of Avanti was defeated by king Shishunaga of Magadha. Avanti later became part of the Magadhan empires. Magadha The Magadha was one of the most prominent and prosperous of mahajanapadas. The capital city Pataliputra present day Patna, Bihar was situated on the confluence of major rivers like the Ganga, Son, Punpun and Gandak. The alluvial plains of this region and its proximity to the copper and iron rich areas of Bihar and Jharkhand helped the kingdom to develop good quality weapons and support the agrarian economy. Its location at the center of the highways of trade of those days contributed to its wealth. All these factors helped Magadha to emerge as the most prosperous state of that period. The kingdom of the Magadha’s roughly corresponded to the modern districts of Patna and Gaya in southern Bihar and parts of Bengal in the east. The capital city of Pataliputra was bound in the north by the river Ganges, in the east by the river Champa, in the south by the Vindhya Mountains and in the west by the river Sona. During Buddha's time its boundaries included Amga. Its earliest capital was Girivraja or Rajagaha (modern Rajgir in the Nalanda district of Bihar). The other names for the city were Magadhapura, Brihadrathapura, Vasumati, Kushagrapura and Bimbisarapuri. It was an active center of Jainism in ancient times. The first Buddhist Council was held in Rajagaha in the Vaibhara Hills. Later on, Pataliputra became the capital of Magadha. Kosala The country of Kosala was located to the north-west of Magadha, with its capital at Ayodhya. Its territory corresponded to the modern Awadh (or Oudh) in Central and Eastern Uttar Pradesh. It had the river Ganges for its southern, the river Gandak for its eastern, and the Himalaya mountains for its northern boundary. It finds mention as the center of Vedic Dharma. Its kings allied with the Devatas in various wars against the Daityas, Rakshas, and Asuras. Kosala and Ayodhya hold a central place in the Hindu scriptures, Itihas, and Purana. Raghu vansha-Ikshvaku vansha was the longest continuous dynasty; Lord Rama was a king in this dynasty. Other great kings were Prithu, Harishchandra, and Dilip, who are each mentioned in different Puranas, Ramayan, and Mahabharat. According to these texts, Kosala was the most powerful and biggest kingdom ever in the recorded history. Later, the kingdom was ruled by the famous king Prasenajit during the era of Mahavira and Buddha, followed by his son Vidudabha (Virudhaka). King Prasenajit was highly educated. His position was further improved by a matrimonial alliance with Magadha: his sister was married to Bimbisara and part of Kasi was given as dowry. There was, however, a struggle for supremacy between king Pasenadi (Prasenajit) and king Ajatashatru of Magadha which was finally settled once the confederation of Lichchavis became aligned with Magadha. Kosala was ultimately merged into Magadha when Vidudabha was Kosala's ruler. Ayodhya, Saketa, Banaras, and Sravasti were the chief cities of Kosala.

At the end, the Maratha power was destroyed and British supremacy established. First Anglo-Maratha War (1775 – 1782) Background and course • The third Peshwa Balaji Baji Rao lost the Third Battle of Panipat on 24 January 1761. He died on 23 June 1761. • Madhav Rao was able to recover some of the Maratha power and territories • When Madhav Rao died, there was a struggle for power in the Maratha rule. • Madhav Rao’s brother Narayan Rao became the Peshwa but his uncle Raghunath Rao wanted to become the Peshwa for this, he sought the help of the English. • the Treaty of Surat in 1775 was signed • The British and the army of Raghunath Rao attacked the Peshwa and won. • the Treaty of Purandhar was signed in 1776 between the Calcutta Council and Nana Phadnavis, a Maratha minister. • Raghunath Rao was given a only pension and Salsette was retained by the British. • In 1777, Nana Phadnavis went against his treaty with the Calcutta Council and granted a port on the west coast to the French. • There was a battle at Wadgaon near Pune in which the Marathas under Mahadji Shinde secured a decisive victory over the English. • The English were forced to sign the Treaty of Wadgaon in 1779. Treaty of Salbai was signed in 1782. This ended the first Anglo-Maratha war. Results • a guarantee from the Marathas that they would retake their possessions in the Deccan from Hyder Ali of Mysore. • All territories taken by the British after the Treaty of Purandhar were ceded back to the Marathas and Raghunath Rao was to live as their pensioner. Second Anglo-Maratha War (1803 – 1805) Background and course • After Tipu Sultan’s Mysore was captured by the British in 1799, the Marathas were the only major Indian power left outside of British domination. • At that time, the Maratha Confederacy consisted of five major chiefs, the Peshwas Pune, the Gaekwads Baroda, the Holkars Indore, the Scindias at Gwalior and the Bhonsles at Nagpur. • In the Battle of Poona in 1802, Yashwant Rao Holkar, the chief of the Holkars of Indore defeated the Peshwas and the Scindias. Baji Rao II sought British protection and signed the Treaty of Bassein with them. • The Scindias and the Bhonsles did not accept this treaty and this caused the second Anglo-Maratha war in central India in 1803 Results • All the Maratha forces were defeated by the British in these battles. • The Scindias signed the Treaty of Surji-Anjangaon in 1803 through which the British got the territories of Rohtak, Ganga-Yamuna Doab, Gurgaon, Delhi Agra region, Broach, some districts in Gujarat, parts of Bundelkhand and Ahmednagar fort. • The Bhonsles signed the Treaty of Deogaon in 1803 as per which the English acquired Cuttack, Balasore and area west of Wardha River. • The Holkars signed the Treaty of Rajghat in 1805 according to which they gave up Tonk, Bundi and Rampura to the British. • As a result of the war, large parts of central India came under British control. Third Anglo-Maratha War (1817 – 1818) Background and course • one last attempt to rebuild their old prestige and they wanted to retake all their old possessions from the English. • The major reason for this war was due to the British conflict with the Pindaris whom the British suspected were being protected by the Marathas. • Peshwa Baji Rao II's forces, supported by those of Mudhoji II Bhonsle of Nagpur and Malhar Rao Holkar III of Indore, rose against the East India Company. • British victories were swift, resulting in the breakup of the Maratha Empire and the loss of Maratha independence Results • The Treaty of Gwalior was signed in 1817 between Shinde and the British, even though he had not been involved in the war.

But as the most decisive battles of the wars were fought in the Carnatic, nawab of carnatic,it is rightly called as the Third Carnatic War. Causes of French failure • A principal factor for French failure was the superiority of the British naval power. This enabled the English to bring soldiers from Europe and to send supplies from Bengal. But the French were unable to replenish their resources from outside. • Secondly, the English East India Company was a private company and it showed greater enterprise in business. But the French Company was dependent on the government and lacked the spirit of bold, individual and corporate effort. Neither the French government nor the share holders who were assured of a fixed dividend took any active interest in the fortunes of the Company British Raj,. • Thirdly, the British had three important bases in India – Calcutta, Madras and Bombay. If any of these bases were imperiled by the French, the English could still get resources from other centers and could continue war from the other bases. On the other hand, the French had only one strong base at Pondicherry. If Pondicherry was endangered, it could not get any effective support from their other bases in India. • Fourthly, the British Company was lucky to have many capable men like Clive, Lawrence, and Eyre Coote etc. in its service. On the other hand, besides Dupleix, the French Company had no really able man to serve it. • Fifthly, the victory at Plassey gave the English Company large resources of a rich area Pondichéry,.

Our aim is to get you started on the Indian architectures such as Colonial Architecture, Indo Islamic Architecture, Ancient Architecture, Cave Architecture, Rock Cut, Temple Architecture. These are the types of Indian architecture. Ancient architecture of India is rich in culture and tradition. Lets see some facts on it. Colonial Architecture Like all other aspects of society, the colonization of India also had a great impact on architecture. Colonization marked a new chapter in Indian architecture. Though the Dutch, the Portuguese and the French made their presence felt through their buildings but it was the English who had a lasting impact on architecture of India. In the beginning of the colonial rule there were attempts at creating authority through classical prototypes. In its later phase the colonial architecture culminated into what is called the Indo-Saracenic architecture. The Indo-Saracenic architecture combined the features of Hindu, Islamic and western elements. Examples: Santhome Church,Chennai All Saints Cathedral, Allahabad St. George's Cathedral, Chennai Gole Market, New Delhi Medak Cathedral, Telangana Indo Islamic Architecture The medieval period saw great developments in the field of architecture. With the coming of Muslims to India, many new features came to be introduced in buildings. The development of Muslim Style of Architecture of this period can be called the Indo-Islamic Architecture or the Indian Architecture influenced by Islamic Art. Examples: Qutub Minar, New Delhi Alai Darwaza, New Delhi Agra Fort, Agra Taj Mahal, Agra Red Fort, New Delhi Ancient Architecture Indian architecture is as old as the history of the civilization. The earliest remains of recognizable building activity in the India dates back to the Indus Valley cities. Among India's ancient architectural remains, the most characteristic are the temples, Chaityas, Viharas, Stupas and other religious structures. Examples: Akshardham Temple, Delhi Virupaksha Temple, Karnataka Karla Caves, Maharashtra Ellora Caves, Maharashtra Cave Architecture The cave architecture in India is believed to have begun during the ancient time. These caves were used by Buddhist and Jain monks as places of worship and residence . Examples: Mahabalipuram, Tamilnadu Ajanta Caves, Maharashtra Bhaja Caves, Maharashtra Bedse Caves, Maharashtra Sittanavasal, Tamilnadu Rock Cut The Rock-cut structures present the most spectacular piece of ancient Indian art specimen. Most of the rock-cut structures were closely associated with various religions and religious activities. In the beginning, remarkable Buddhist and Jain rock-cut structures were built in areas such as Bihar in the east and Maharashtra in the west. Numerous caves were excavated by the Buddhist monks for prayer and residence purposes. The best example of this is Chaityas (prayer halls) and viharas (monasteries). Examples: Kailasa temple, Ellora Pancha Rathas, Mahabalipuram Barabar Caves, Bihar Badami Cave Temples, Karnataka Ajanta Cave, Maharashtra Temple Architecture In ancient India, temple architecture of high standard developed in almost all regions. The distinct architectural style of temple construction in different parts was a result of geographical, climatic, ethnic, racial, historical and linguistic diversities. Ancient Indian temples are classified in three broad types. This classification is based on different architectural styles, employed in the construction of the temples. Three main style of temple architecture are the Nagara or the Northern style, the Dravida or the Southern style and the Vesara or Mixed style. But at the same time there are also some regional styles of Bengal, Kerala and the Himalayan areas. Examples: Brihadeeswarar Temple, Thanjavur Jagadamba Temple, Madhya Pradesh Sun Temple, Modhera Konark Sun Temple, Orissa Chennakeshava Temple, Karnataka Subscribe to our channel for continuous updates ------------------------------------------------- Visit our website for Free regular updates: https://www.exambin.com Follow us on: Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/exam.ibps Twitter. https://www.twitter.com/exambin Google+ : https://plus.google.com/+ExamBin -------------------------------------------------

Basics of Hardware and software | Computer Awareness Lesson - 7
Computer Awareness Series : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcV1XAQS3-P7D2tfRIrYI5sl This is session is about Basics of Hardware and software Basics of Hardware and software. We will be getting to know about primary memory vs secondary memory through primary memory example. Primary memory and secondary memory in computer are random access memory, secondary memory storage devices. We have discussed briefly on read only memory explained, eeprom memory. The major types Software types in computer : system software and application software. Application software and system software are the two major classification in types of softwares. application software examples are discussed. Computer for competitive exams, computer in education are this series’ focus. Hardware Hardware refers to the physical components of the computer. Monitor, Keybord, Cpu are the three major parts of a computer. Here, CPU is the main component of the computer. Again, CPU is divided into three major parts. 1. Control Unit 2. Arithmetic Logic Unit 3. Memory 1. Control unit This unit controls the operations of all parts of a computer. It obtains the instructions from the memory, interprets them, and directs the operation of the computer.  It converts the user input and converts them into signals sends to ALU Unit.  It uses clock inputs to maintain the sequence of the data, this speed is the frequency of the data processing and it is measured in Megahertz. 2. Arithmetic Logic Unit An arithmetic-logic unit (ALU) is the part of CPU System that carries out arithmetic and logic operations. • An ALU performs basic arithmetic, examples of arithmetic operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. • It also performs logical operations like comparisons of values such as NOT, AND, and OR. • All information in a computer is stored in the form of binary numbers, i.e. 0 and 1. 3. Memory Unit The memory unit stores the data, instructions and sends the information to all the other units of the computer whenever it needs. It is also known as primary memory or RAM (Random access memory). All input and output are transmitted through main memory. There are two kinds memory we often refers to when it comes to computer memory system. Those are: 1. Primary Memory Primary memory select any part of memory when user want to save the data in memory but that may not be store permanently on that location. It also has another name i.e. RAM. Random Access Memory (RAM): The primary storage is referred to as random access memory (RAM) due to the random selection of memory locations. It performs both read and write operations on memory. If power failures happened in systems during memory access then you will lose your data permanently. So, RAM is volatile memory. 2. Secondary Memory Secondary memory is external and permanent memory that is useful to store the external storage media such as DVD Drive, Hard Disk, Memory cards, Memory Sticks like Pen Drive. Secondary memory deals with following types of components. Read Only Memory (ROM) : memory location that offer huge ROM is permanent types of standards to save data. But it work with read only operation. No data lose happen whenever power failure occur during the ROM memory work in computers. ROM memory has several models such names are following. We have added pronunciation to our vocabulary learning series as per your feedback…thank you.! 1. PROM: Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM) maintains large storage media but can’t offer the erase features in ROM. This type of RO maintains PROM chips to write data once and read many. The programs or instructions designed in PROM can’t be erased by other programs. 2. EPROM : Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory designed for recover the problems of PROM and ROM. Users can delete the data of EPROM thorough pass on ultraviolet light and it erases chip is reprogrammed. 3. EEPROM: Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory similar to the EPROM but it uses electrical beam for erase the data of ROM. 1. System Software 2. Application Software System software The System software consists of low level (binary) programs that interact with the computer at the very basic level. Examples of system softwares are Operating Systems, Compilers and Utilities for managing computer resources (printer software, scanner software etc). Some of the Major Operating systems that used widely around the globe is 1. Windows OS 2. Mac OS 3.

Recapitalisation & Financial Sector Reforms | Banking Awareness Series
Recapitalisation & Financial Sector Reforms Hello friends, Welcome back to Exambin’s Financial learning series. In this session we are going to know about the recapitalisation in financial sector and why it is needed at this time. Why recapitalisation is in news? RBI Governor has recently spoken about Recapitalisation of banks needs to be done with a clear and structured foresight. What is recapitalisation? • Generally, Recapitalization is a process of restructuring a company's debt and equity mixture, often with the aim of making a company's capital structure more stable or optimal. • Re-capitalisation of banks means infusing additional capital that is liquid money into the banks in order to give them the liquidity needed to carry out lending and other banking functions. • On that note, it is a positive sign that the RBI, as the sector’s regulator, and the government, as the principal shareholder of these banks, now are in consultations on the problem. Why did the liquidity crunch arise? • The banking sector is badly affected by the build-up of gross Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) which led to liquidity crunch. • It has also been observed that NPAs are heavily concentrated in Public Sector Banks. • Some PSBs have NPAs in the range of 15 to 24 per cent. • This has resulted in slowdown in bank’s lending to industry and retail growth, thus holding back private investment in economic growth. • The prevalence of bad loans also presents a serious systemic risk to the financial system. How much is the figures to worry? • Gross NPAs stood at almost 9.6% of the total bank loans at the end of the last financial year. • Stressed advances are another 12 per cent as of March 2017 • As much as 86.5 per cent of GNPAs are accounted by large borrowers • Total Bad loans is reportedly being at Rs.9 Trillion or 9 Lakh Crores. What are the priorities in this regard? • NPA Problem -Settling the existing bad loans might require banks to write off a considerable sum, which would affect their capital provisioning, thereby requiring re-capitalisation. • But, given that NPAs are over Rs 9 lakh crores, a straightforward recapitalisation of PSBs would greatly strain the government’s fiscal position. • Furthermore, in the absence of deep governance reform, it is uncertain that the NPA problem will ever be solved. • It is essential, therefore, that the structure of any bank bailout be such that future bad behaviour is not incentivised. • Disinvestment - Besides capital infusion by the government, raising capital from the market by dilution of government equity and sales of non-core assets are also being considered. • Dilution of government equity must be accompanied by a reduction in effective government control to make it an attractive buy for the private sector. • Incentive Mechanism -A mechanism to hold poor performer banks accountable and incentivising good ones is needed. • Such an approach will produce a stronger public sector banking system. • Certainly, India cannot afford to pour in more money to the bad performers by penalizing good performers. What are the steps taken so far? • The government has made a budgetary provision of pumping in Rs 75,000 crore into state-run banks for the four-year period ending March 2019. • On June 13, the RBI had drawn up a list of 500 largest defaulters and made public 12 of the largest among the larger list and asked banks to get these accounts cleared through the National Company Law Tribunal. • These 12 accounts comprise Bhushan Steel, Bhushan Power & Steel, Essar Steel, Lanco Infra, Amtek Auto, Electrosteel Steel, Jaypee Infra, Alok Industries and Jyoti Structures, Era Infrastructure, ABG Shipyard and Monet Ispat which together account for over 25% of the total bad loans of Rs 9 trillion of which Rs 6 trillion are with public sector banks alone. Ask your questions on the topic we would respons to each and every comment that is being posted.

INDIAN GEOGRAPHY : Indian Climate Part 1
Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app Welcome back to the third lesson on geography here we are going to see about climate of india geography IAS/UPSC lecture which will be helpful for your preparations with climate of India geography UPSC/IAS Climate of India  In a country like India which has different geographical structures that varies in region to region we have varied climatic conditions.  India has very hot and very cold regions; as well as regions with very heavy rainfall and very scanty rainfall Climatic Seasons of India The South west monsoon controls the agriculture of India, which is the main occupation of the people. Distribution of Rainfall in India  The rainfall in India is seasonal, uncertain and unevenly distributed Major factors affecting Indian Climate  Northward shifting of the Westerly Jet (north of himalayas)  Northward shifting of the ITCZ.  S-E trade winds from S. hemisphere cross the equator and turn right due to coriolis force.  Latitudinal Extent  Southern Seas  Northern Mountains  El – Nino  La – Nina  Westerlies in Northern part of India from Mediterranean (in winters)  Easterlies due to Heating of Tibetan Plateau  Jet streams Indian Monsoon Features  Monsoon is seasonal changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation associated with the asymmetric heating of land and sea  The southwest monsoon brings rains towards the end of summer as the high pressure built in the Indian Ocean pushes the wind masses towards the low pressure formed on land  Temperature Gradient → It’s the temperature variation between the sea and the landmass Summer Monsoon in India (SW Monsoon) • Originates due to Northward shift of ITCZ → SE trade winds cross equator → Deflect & enter into India as SW Monsoon • Easterly Jet Stream / SE Monsoon / BOB Monsoon → Due to differential heating of Tibetian plateau & Himalayan region BOB Initiation of Summer Monsoon • The southwest monsoon typically breaks over Indian Territory by around 25 May, when it lashes the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal • It strikes the Indian mainland around 1 June near the Malabar Coast of Kerala • By 9 June, it reaches Mumbai; it appears over Delhi by 29 June Withdrawal of Summer Monsoon • Monsoon clouds begin retreating from North India by the end of August; it withdraws from Mumbai by 5 October • As India further cools during September, the southwest monsoon weakens. By the end of November, it leaves the country Arabian Sea Branch • Strikes WGs + Move parallel to Aravallis & Strike Himalayas • Rainfall at WGs & Coastal Regions + Northern Plains • Strikes at Western Ghats; and gives rainfall to the western most regions • While rain shadow interiors, the Deccan plateau receive very less rainfall. Bay of Bengal Branch • Moves parallel with the Eastern Ghats and produce very less rainfall until it strikes at NE. • Bifurcate at Meghalaya hills & move parallel to Himalaya • One branch provide rainfall to NE India region Retreating or NE Monsoon • Around September, with the sun fast retreating south, the northern land mass of the Indian subcontinent cool off rapidly Indian ocean Winter Rainfall in South India • While travelling towards the Indian Ocean, the dry cold wind picks up some moisture from the Bay of Bengal and pours it over peninsular India and parts of Sri Lanka • Cities like Madras, which get less rain from the Southwest Monsoon, receive rain from this Monsoon. Jet Streams • Jet streams are currents of air high above the Earth • They at altitudes of about 8 to 15 kilometers, located near tropopause • The major jet streams on Earth are westerly winds (flowing west to east) • Flow at very high speeds → 120 kmph in winters and 50 kmph in summers • Jet streams are caused by a combination of a planet’s rotation on its axis and atmospheric heating Sub-tropical jet stream • They prevail over the lower latitudes of westerlies. • It is produced by the rotation of earth and its spherical shape. • The air over equator has the highest velocity (Coriolis effect) Sub-Tropical Westerly Jet • Winter – entirely south of Himalayas – over north India • Major cause of western disturbance • STWJ maintain the High pressure over north India • Hence no Monsoon in winters • During summers it flows to the north of Himalayas • Hence low pressure over north India & monsoon Mid-latitude or polar front jet stream • It is more variable and is produced by a temperature difference • In summers its position shifts towards poles and in winters towards equator

India’s role in United Nations | Role of India in UN | permanent membership in UNSC
Part I - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUVNIMQ2GQg Part II - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d67ZqTcfwUk Part III - https://youtu.be/zffZJvd52VQ Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app INDIA’S ROLE IN UN India was one of the founding member of the United Nations by 1945, which is happened two years before India’s Independence. India actively participated in UN activities since then. India took a major role in drafting the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. India was the first chair of the Decolonization Committee. As a leader of Non Aligned Movement where Jawaharlal Nehru was co-founder, India raised the issues of the third world in the UN. INDIA DESERVES A PERMANENT SEAT IN UNSC India have a bid for permanent membership in UNSC and campaigns for the reformation of UN system globally. India is one among the top troop contributors to United Nations Peacekeeping. In terms of Economy and Military, India has shown a steady growth in the past decades. Currently having one sixth of world’s population (1.28 billion) and being the World’s largest democracy, India deserves a permanent seat in UNSC. CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME It is a complex situation. India is growing economically but lags being when it comes to per capita indicators. Owing to its military strength, it is contributing in huge numbers to peacekeeping but cannot match up to the financing levels of P-5 or Japan in relation to peacekeeping operations. Brazil, Germany, India, and Japan comprise the group of G4 nations, mutually supporting one another's bids for permanent seats.This sort of reform has traditionally been opposed by the Uniting for Consensus group, which is composed primarily of nations who are regional rivals and economic competitors of the G4. The group is led by Italy and Spain (opposing Germany), Mexico, Colombia, and Argentina (opposing Brazil), Pakistan (opposing India), and South Korea (opposing Japan). Other than U.K. and France, three other permanent members of the Security Council are still against Council reform that would entail a change in their present status. The possibility of changes in the positions of the US and Russia are unlikely since they are in a state of relative decline. Since it is their current status in the Council that provides them pre-eminence on issues related to international peace and security, they are not expected to support any move that reduces their say in global politics. It is unrealistic to think that China would not give up its present privileged status in the UN, even as it seeks greater influence and presence in global politics as a rising power. The P5 are unlikely to approve the promotion of any country to permanent status due to the fact that such a change would eventually dilute their power. A careful reading of the report of the deliberations of the UNGA on November 7, 2016 would suggest that nothing has changed at the ground level; only the rhetoric of member If we were to view our claim for permanent berth in the UNSC from a critic’s prism, we could say that in all earnestness, India itself has not abided by the UN Resolution on Kashmir, its human rights records are dismal and country is plagued with social evils like, rampant corruption, crime against women and children, labour exploitation, internal and external security problems like terrorism and Naxalism, communal disharmony etc. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CASE OF UNSC REFORMATION After more than 20 years of stalling, moves to reform the council to reflect a more global balance of power gained momentum in 2015 when a negotiating text was adopted by the General Assembly, overcoming strong opposition from a small group of countries including Pakistan and Italy. The adoption of the text was a breakthrough as meaningful negotiations could not be held without such a document. WHAT INDIA CAN DO? The current scenario shows that a permanent seat in UNSC with veto power is a Himalayan task for India to achieve. We may get this done one day. But, we should also realise that there are many other alternatives like BRICS, G20, etc. in front of us. India have a great role to play in these groupings. India Should come in front to work for peace when there are tensions like we did in the initial years of NAM. (India couldn’t react to the recent issues like Syrian crisis.) India should give attention to its own security threats and this will help India to emerge as a global role model or a security provider. The oppositions and challenges which India faced in other groupings like Nuclear Suppliers Group shows that India still lacks a global consensus. UNSC is one of the toughest task for Indian diplomats.

How to increase the income of farmers | 3 Step Process to Increasing the income of farmers
Increasing the income of farmers What is the underlying issue? 3.2 lakh farmers have committed suicide in the last 20 years Every half an hour, a farmer is taking his/her life in the process of producing food for all of us Farm crisis, farmer suicides, pesticide poisoning, land grab and several other issues pushing farmers into taking their lives But of all the underlying issue is low income of farmers. Year on Year, farmers income level is deteriorating. We need a sustainable and effective solution to increase the income of farmers so that economic growth will be stabilised. How do we enhance farm income on a sustained basis? Farm income is the excess of income from the sale of farmer’s produce over his expenditure incurred on producing the same. Three main components are 1. Maximisation of revenue; 2. Minimisation of costs of inputs, 3. Development of alternative sources of income. Maximisation of revenue Crop selection: Every crop’s price is a function of global demand, supply, inventory levels, currency rates, trade flows, freight rates, interest rates, governmental policies and local politics. With a view of assessing the same, it is proposed that a National Crop Planning Bureau be set up, with a mandate to develop understanding and competencies on each of India’s major crops. This will ensure that the farmer does not overproduce a wrong crop at the cost of foregoing profits on another crop. Further, we need to ensure that India creates global competency in a few crops. India’s agri-infrastructure is geared towards procurement, storage and movement of wheat and rice. Yield maximisation: Crop production has to meet the growing population. Each crop has a research centre in India, which works on testing multiple varieties of seeds. rate also needs to improve in India, so as to ensure continuous enhancement of yield levels. Collective farming and bargaining: The mandi system of India, in spite of its pitfalls, has done a tremendous job of aggregating and consolidating farm produce. Now, the next step in this journey is to either form FPOs (Farmer Producer Organisations/ Companies) or to form farm co-operatives (FCs). Minimisation of costs Inputs: Cost of inputs can be minimised by • Ensuring zero tax on all participants of the value chain of manufacturing the input so as to have a low end-cost of finished product, ensuring early release of subsidies to the companies or the farmers. • Continued priority sector lending rate benefits, • Ensuring adequate availability during peak season to avoid black marketing, • Rationalised subsidy calculation mechanism which negates net-back dilution on account of freight charges. Electricity and water: State energy development authorities under the Ministry of Renewable Energy should ensure that all farms shift to solar irrigation pumps, provided by the government under the National Solar Mission. Mechanisation: The effort needs to be scaled up inline with aggregators like Ola, Uber to provide mechanised farm products at a fraction of their cost. Interest rates: Interest rates on loans to farmers need to be continue being the lowest. Logistics: An unseen component of the overall crop economics is the cost of logistics of marketing the produce.The cost of transporting higher volumes leads to lower per tonne cost of transportation. Alternate sources of income Dairy and livestock: The government should establish formal breeding centres and subsequent sale of such cows and buffaloes to the farmers. Financial literacy: There is a need to take financial literacy through trusted sources like the LIC or Post offices to the villages, so that the larger population of the country also becomes a prime participant in economic growth. Crop insurance: The current models of crop insurance are factored basis rainfall, temperature and crop loss. However, a more robust model should take into account losses on account of pest attacks, quality deterioration. Job insurance: There are newer insurance products which insure jobs. The overall family income of a rural household also has a component of a non-farm job income from the informal economy (drivers, office boys, mechanics, salesmen, cleaners). This employment needs to be formalised and job losses prevented through social security programmes. Population control: The root cause of all of India’s farm woes are small land holdings, a consequence of our expanding population. A start needs to be made for a one-child programme, which can halve India’s population from the current 1.20 billion to 500 million by 2100.. A plan to double farm incomes needs to be implemented by all State governments, irrespective of their political affiliations, so as to ensure that India becomes a fully developed country in the next 50 years.

Types of Indian Sculpture | Wooden Sculpture, Sand Sculpture, Marble Sculpture, Bronze sculpture
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.exambin.app INDIAN SCULPTURE The sculptural traditions, forms, and styles of the civilizations of the Indian subcontinent. Sculpture was the favoured medium of artistic expression on the Indian subcontinent. Indian buildings were profusely adorned with it and indeed are often inseparable from it. The subject matter of Indian sculpture was almost invariably abstracted human forms that were used to instruct people in the truths of the Hindu, Buddhist, or Jain religions. The nude was used both to represent the body as a symbol of spirit and to reveal the imagined shapes of the gods. There is an almost complete suppression of individuality in Indian sculpture; this is because the figures are conceived of as shapes that are more perfect and final than anything to be found in the merely transitory appearance of human models. The multiple heads and arms of sculptured Hindu divinities were thought necessary to display the manifold attributes of these gods’ power. Types of Indian Sculpture: • Wooden Sculptures • Bronze Sculptures • Marble Sculptures • Stone Sculptures • Sand Sculptures Wooden Sculpture Indian wooden sculpture has marked its presence since ancient times and has been the evidence of artistic brilliance. Every region of India had developed its own unique style of wooden structures, marked with a distinct type of carving, strongly influenced by local traditions and the materials that were locally available. From the southern parts of India, the wooden sculptures and toys are popular for their intricate carving works and meticulous finishing. In Indian wood sculpture, idols of god, goddesses and demigods are the most preferred themes. Bronze Sculptures Sculpture of Bronzes immensely radiates a sense of immortality and powerfully reflects the fascination and mystery about the ancient cultures of Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism. The art of making Bronze sculptures began in the Indus Valley Civilization (2400-B.C.), where the Indus Bronze statuette of a slender-limbed "dancing girl" was found in Mohenjodaro. Marble Sculptures Entire artwork of marble sculptures in India bears the excellent style and patterns of finest craftsmanship that are achieved with quality. As per Historical evidences the art of marble sculpture reached at the peak during the Mughal rule. In Mughal dynasty, Shah Jahan's reign is marked for monumental Taj Mahal architectural achievements. He initiated the most important architectural change in the form of the use of marble in preparation of monuments or tombs instead of sandstone. Stone Sculptures Sarnath is one of the most beautiful sites in the world & sacred where the Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon, which was the introduction of Buddhism. The Lion Capital on top of one of pillar, which is recognized as the National Emblem of India, is from Sarnath. The Emperor Ashoka who worked in this life for spreading the Buddha's message of love and compassion visited Sarnath around 234 BC, and erected a Grand stupa. The main structure of the place has been enclosed and marked with the presence of a complex structure of monasteries that are half-ruined condition stupas. Dhamek Stupa is known for particular significance at Sarnath as it signifies the "seat of the holy Buddha", after he proclaimed his faith. Believed to be constructed 5th to 6th century, it is a cylindrical tower of around 30 meters high with a solid structure. But the sculptural beauty is maintained with all the architectural techniques. The trunk of the stupa is decorated using panels carved with geometric and floral designs. Sand Sculptures Sand sculpture, reminiscent of any Indian sculptures can be of multiple shape, size or form. Sand sculpture is native to Orissa which has later spread its root towards whole of India. It can include the above things- a castle, or created in a human, animal, plant or a fantasy form. As this art is comparatively a recent one, it didn’t have any historical references. Although not historically proved, the origin of this art is found in the Orissan myths. Sometimes even coloured sand is also used to create sculpture,.

Environment Impact Assessment Part 1
Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app Environmental Impact Assessment Developmental projects in the past were undertaken without any consideration to their environmental consequences. As a result the whole environment got polluted and degraded. In view of the colossal damage done to the environment, governments and public are now concerned about the environmental impacts of developmental activities. So, to assess the environmental impacts, the mechanism of Environmental Impact Assessment also known as EIA was introduced. EIA is a tool to anticipate the likely environmental impacts that may arise out of the proposed developmental activities and suggest measures and strategies to reduce them. EIA was introduced in India in 1978, with respect to river valley projects. Later the EIA legislation was enhanced to include other developmental sections since 1941. EIA comes under Notification on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of developmental projects 1994 under the provisions of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. Besides EIA, the Government of India under Environment (Protection) Act 1986 issued a number of other notifications, which are related to environmental impact assessment. EIA is now mandatory for 30 categories of projects, and these projects get Environmental Clearance (EC) only after the EIA requirements are fulfilled. Environmental clearance or the ‘go ahead’ signal is granted by the Impact Assessment Agency in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India. Projects that require clearance from central government can be broadly categorized into the following sectors • Industries • Mining • Thermal power plants • River valley projects • Infrastructure • Coastal Regulation Zone and • Nuclear power projects The important aspects of EIA are risk assessment, environmental management and Post product monitoring. Functions of EIA is to 1. Serve as a primary environmental tool with clear provisions. 2. Apply consistently to all proposals with potential environmental impacts. 3. Use scientific practice and suggest strategies for mitigation. 4. Address all possible factors such as short term, long term, small scale and large scale effects. 5. Consider sustainable aspects such as capacity for assimilation, carrying capacity, biodiversity protection etc... 6. Lay down a flexible approach for public involvement 7. Have a built-in mechanism of follow up and feedback. 8. Include mechanisms for monitoring, auditing and evaluation. In order to carry out an environmental impact assessment, the following are essential: 1. Assessment of existing environmental status. 2. Assessment of various factors of ecosystem (air, water, land, biological). 3. Analysis of adverse environmental impacts of the proposed project to be started. 4. Impact on people in the neighborhood. Benefits of EIA • EIA provides a cost effective method to eliminate or minimize the adverse impact of developmental projects. • EIA enables the decision makers to analyses the effect of developmental activities on the environment well before the developmental project is implemented. • EIA encourages the adaptation of mitigation strategies in the developmental plan. • EIA makes sure that the developmental plan is environmentally sound and within limits of the capacity of assimilation and regeneration of the ecosystem. • EIA links environment with development. The goal is to ensure environmentally safe and sustainable development. Environmental Components of EIA: The EIA process looks into the following components of the environment: • Air environment • Noise component : • Water environment • Biological environment • Land environment EIA Process and Procedures Steps in Preparation of EIA report • Collection of baseline data from primary and secondary sources; • Prediction of impacts based on past experience and mathematical modelling; • Evolution of impacts versus evaluation of net cost benefit; • Preparation of environmental management plans to reduce the impacts to the minimum; • Quantitative estimation of financial cost of monitoring plan and the mitigation measures. Environment Management Plan • Delineation of mitigation measures including prevention and control for each environmental component, rehabilitation and resettlement plan. EIA process: EIA process is cyclical with interaction between the various steps. 1. Screening 2. Scoping 3. Collection of baseline data 4. Impact prediction 5. Mitigation measures and EIA report 6. Public hearing 7. Decision making 8. Assessment of Alternatives, Delineation of Mitigation Measures and Environmental Impact Assessment Report 9. Risk assessment

Ancient Indian Architecture Part I
Ancient Indian Architecture Indian architecture is as old as the history of the civilization. The earliest remains of recognizable building activity in the India dates back to the Indus Valley cities. Ancient architecture of India: Ajanta caves AJANTA Caves are one of the world’s greatest historical monument recognized by UNESCO. Ajanta was discovered in 1819 A.D and were built as early as 2nd century BCE to about 480 CE. The village of Ajanta is in the Sahayadri hills, about 99 kms from Aurangabad a few miles away in a mammoth horseshoe-formed rock, there are 30 caves overlooking a gorge,each forming a room in the hill and some with inner rooms. Vijayanagara Empire Its ruins are located at present day Hampi in Karnataka. Four dynasties – Sangama, Saluva, Tuluva and Aravidu – ruled Vijayanagara from 1336 C.E. to 1646 C.E. It reached its climax in the end of 14th century. The Vitthala Temple amongst these is the finest example of ornate architecture with gopurams (temple entrance), halls, sanctum sanctorum and sabha mandapas. The temple also has a market street right in the middle and a richly carved step well (Pushkarni). Mahabodhi Temple In the sanctified town of Gaya, a holy structure that marks the path that the great ascetic took to gain divine enlightenment and became A Buddha. The temple was first constructed by the great emperor Ashoka, in 232 BCE and subsequent work was carried out by the rulers of Gupta dynasty. Konark Temple On the sparkling coasts of Bay of Bengal rests this edifice that honors the work of the masters of ancient times. The temple has an elaborate and intricate mammoth structure that depicts the chariot of the Sun God replete with 24 carved wheels, each of them 3 m in diameter, pulled by seven horses and guarded by two lions at the entrance that bravely crush elephants. It is an example of beautiful melee of science and architecture. THE WHEELS AT SUN TEMPLE KONARK SERVE AS ACCURATE SUN DIALS AND ARE INSPIRATION FOR THE MODERN DAY WATCHES Taj Mahal The Taj Mahal was built in 1632 AD by over twenty thousand artisans who worked over 22 years! The white marble was bought in from Makrana in Rajasthan and was transported by elephants. In its days of glory the Taj Mahal was adorned with no less than 28 types of precious stones, brought in from as far as Tibet and Persia. Bhimbetka Shelters The site spread over 10 km in length and about 3 km in width has more than 700 rock shelters, of which over 400 have paintings. The earliest human activities are known from the numerous stone tools including handaxes, cleavers and also the pebble tools. The landscape and the fauna surrounding the rock shelters is called Ratapani wildlife sanctuary in which the evidence of the trees and animals depicted in the paintings inside the shelter can still be found. Ellora Caves There are over 100 caves at the site, all excavated from the basalt cliff in Charanandri Hills, but only 34 are open to public 34 monasteries and temples are splendors where art and religion combines. each group represents deities and mythologies that were prevalent in the 1st millennium CE. The twelve caves of the Buddhist group speaks about the teachings of Buddhism. The ‘Cavern of the Ten Avatars’ is a majestic art piece constructed under the reign of Krishna I. The ethnicity of Jain group is well reflected by the sanctuaries carved by the Digambara sect of this religion. Chola temples The entire temple carved in granite is believed to be inspired by the Pallava architecture. The beautifully adorned 108 poses of the Bharata- Natyam on the walls reflects the rich culture during the chola dynasty. The beautiful series of carvings depicting the legend ruler Rajaraja conversing with his guru, is stunningly sculpted in rich colors which rewinds you to the time of king and queens. Mahabalipuram The temple is most famous for its depictions of the chariots of the warriors of the Mahbharata, called Rathas all of which are in a specifically designated form, some rising to as high as two or three storeys. There is another remarkable sculpture that adorns the temple walls which is called the Descent of the Ganges. The intricacy and ingenuity of the carvings are an example of the skill of the craftsman who constructed these temples way back in the 7th Century! Rani Ki Vav Situated in Patan, Gujarat, Rani Ki Vav is an ancient step-well, that was built by Rani Udaymati in 11th Century AD, to worship hallowed waters of Saraswati River. An exquisite example of subterranean architecture, Rani ki Vav is 64 meters long, 20 meters wide and 27 meters deep. It runs downwards upto a length of seven storeys. All of these storeys are carved with more 500 sculptures which represent humans, nymphs, gods and the kings in varying forms of skill and intricacy, with the central theme being the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

Link for National Park is https://youtu.be/2wrl9uehGBA?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcX2gmfJ8DZg-VdS52RA0MEC Link for Wildlife Sanctuary is: https://youtu.be/RenlL4zrF2U?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcX2gmfJ8DZg-VdS52RA0MEC Link for Biosphere Reserve: https://youtu.be/93koXCtOX58?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcVgKv9BfdHMKt7KTmFypzFy Wildlife Based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), it can be classified as follows : Normal Species. Endangered Species Vulnerable Species Rare Species Endemic Species Extinct Species Forest & Wildlife Protection Programmes by Government In 1972, a comprehensive Wildlife Act was enacted by Central Government of India lead by Ms Indira Gandhi, which provides the main legal framework for conservation and protection of wildlife in India. The two main objectives of the Act are : • to provide protection to the endangered species listed in the schedule of the Act and • to provide legal support to the conservation areas of the country classified as National parks, sanctuaries and closed areas. For the purpose of effective conservation of flora and fauna, special steps have been initiated by the Government of India in collaboration with UNESCO’s ‘Man and Biosphere Programme’. There are 92 National parks and 492 wildlife sanctuaries covering an area of 15.67 million hectares in the country. National Park • it is a Relatively large area consisting of one or more ecosystems, and it operates at National Level. • No human activity or settlement allowed i.e. human interference is totally prohibited • Villagers cannot graze their animals and national parks have Extremely strict rules about jungle produce collection for ex. Honey To know further about national parks in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 National Park in India Wildlife Sanctuary • In wildlife sanctuary Regulated human activities are allowed for example : Grazing of animals, Firewood collection and Tourism. • It can be created for a particular species which is not the case with national parks; • Wildlife Sanctuary operates at State Level. • A sanctuary can be upgraded to a National park but not vice versa To know further about Wildlife sanctuary in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 Wildlife Sanctuaries in India -------------------------------------------------------------- India has also introduced many Special schemes like Project Tiger (1973) and Project Elephant (1992) to conserve some endangered species and their habitat in a sustainable manner. We will now look at a few of those now. 1) Project Tiger : • There are 50 tiger reserves in India which are governed by Project Tiger which is administrated by the National Tiger Conservation Authority(NTCA). • India is home to 70 percent of tigers in the world. In 2006, there were 1,411 tigers which increased to 1,706 in 2011 and 2,226 in 2014.The total number of wild tigers has risen to 3,891 in 2016 according to World Wildlife Fund and Global Tiger Forum. 2) Project Elephant • Project Elephant (PE) is initiated for protection of elephants, their habitats and corridors. • It also seeks to address the issues of human-elephant conflict and welfare of domesticated elephants. The Project is being implemented in 13 States / Union Territories. • Monitoring of Illegal Killing of Elephants ( MIKE ) 3) Project Snow Leopard • Project Snow Leopard aims To safeguard and conserve India’s unique natural heritage of high altitude wildlife populations and their habitats. • Snow Leopard is globally endangered species as well as the most important flagship species of the mountain region. 4) Sea Turtle Project • With the objective of conservation of olive ridley turtles and other endangered marine turtles, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change initiated the Sea Turtle Conservation Project in collaboration of UNDP in 1999 with Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun as the Implementing Agency. • The project is being implemented in 10 coastal States of the country with special emphasis in State of Orissa. Biosphere Reserve A Biosphere Reserve is a unique representation of ecosystem of terrestrial and coastal areas which are internationally recognized within the framework of UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme. The Biosphere Reserve aims at achieving the three objective as depicted . Core zone Buffer zone Transition zone Conservation Reserves • Particularly the areas adjacent to National Parks and Sanctuaries and the areas which link one Protected Area with another can also be declared as conservation reserves. Community Reserves • Can be declared by the State Government in any private or community land, not comprised within a National Park, Sanctuary or a Conservation Reserve To know further about biosphere reserves in India, refer to our video on : Top 10 Biosphere Reserves in India UNESCO list | Biosphere Reserves in a nutshell

(Part 1) Common man’s Guide to How GST works? | GST simple explanation – GST for UPSC, What is GST
We hope this video has given you some insights about Common man’s Guide to How GST works?. If you would like to know more here is the reference book used: GST Made Simple: A Complete Guide to Goods and Services Tax in India ------------------------------ Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ITB0Wl Download our app : https://www.exambin.com/app Learn online : https://www.exambin.com/learn In this lesson you will be knowing about Three important questions How GST works in India, how gst impacts common man, how gst work. ------------------------ To get answers for these we will see gst simple explanation, gst simple explanation India. Typically gst in India is not the same as in the world. This gst lecture is prepared specifically for gst for upsc, gst for ias, gst ssc, topics in mind. However, it is generally discussing what is gst, what is gst in India, gst rate structure in India, gst full form and varous other key aspects of the gst. GST India 2017 reveals about India gst basic concepts and this is for gst explained upsc. The lecture gst explained in English. We don’t have gst explained in hindi version as of now. We have covered this with gst examples India, gst example India. What is GST? GST’s Expansion is Goods and Services Tax. As the name implies it is the single tax system for both Goods sold physically and the services rendered. We can define GST like this, Goods and Services Tax is a single tax rate levied on the manufacture, sale and consumption of goods and services at a national level. Before seeing how GST is fit into the Indian taxation system lets see what are the existing tax systems in India. Types of Taxes in India There are two kinds of taxes exist in India. • One is Direct Taxes like Corporate tax, Income tax – which is paid by directly by individual to the government depends upons his income. • And the other one is Indirect Taxes which is paid by a representative for example when we buy anything in the super market the MRP includes taxes and the tax is remitted to the Govt by the retailer after consolidating his sales. Indirect taxes is collected by both the Central and state governments at different levels of production and sales. Central Govt - Excise Duty on Production - Service Tax on services rendered within India - Customs Duty on imports are some the taxes levied by central government State Govt - Central Sales Tax OR Value Added tax at each level of Sales like Wholesaler, Distributor and Retailer. - Entertainment Tax, Luxury tax , Lottery Tax etc by the state governments. Which taxes will be replaces by GST? GST will be substituting all indirect tax levied by state and central government. Exports and direct tax like income tax, corporate tax and capital gain tax will not be affected by GST. . GST Rates Excluded Items from GST : 1. Customs Duty is kept outside the purview of GST 2. Oil and Natural gas 3. Electricity 4. Alcohol for Human Consumption The taxes imposed to these items shall be continued as per the structure before GST implementation. Types of GST. GST is levied only on the value-added at every stage of production. This will ensure that there is no cascading effect of taxes (tax on tax paid) on inputs that are used in manufacturing of goods. Normally most of the countries take single GST system. But we in India going for Double GST where states will also will be able to collect taxes on certain scenarios. The proposed tax system will take the form of “dual GST” which is concurrently levied by central and state government. This will comprise of: • Central GST (CGST) which will be levied by Centre • State GST (SGST) Which will be levied by State • Integrated GST (IGST) – which will be levied by Central Government on inter-State supply of goods and services.   Example : Now let us look at two real-time examples of the taxation to arrive at a better understanding of the taxation system on how it deals with avoiding cascading effect and combining all the indirect taxes. First, we will see what will happen when we combine all taxes into a single taxation.   Now we will see how it reduces the cascading effect that is tax on taxes, I am taking a software which is sold as a product like Microsoft Windows at various levels of its sales cycle for illustration.   Though it is projected as game changer it has a few disadvantages like 1. As advertised it is not single taxation still it has CGST and SGST which taxed separately 2. States may lose revenue (many considerations proposed to overcome this) 3. Tax system can only improve the nation on paper. Real growth does not depends on taxation methods.

Preamble and Citizenship Part 2 - NRI, Persons Indian origin, Overseas citizenship  India
Non-resident Indian Non-resident Indian and person of Indian origin (NRI-PIO), also called Overseas Indians or Indian Diaspora, are people of Indian birth or descent who live outside the Republic of India. The term non-resident refers only to the tax status of a person who, as per section 6 of the Income-tax Act of 1961, has not resided in India for a specified period for the purposes of the Income Tax Act. The rates of income tax are different for persons who are "resident in India" and for NRIs. For the purposes of the Income Tax Act, "residence in India" requires stay in India of at least 182 days in a financial year or 365 days spread out over four consecutive years AND at least 60 days in that year. Persons of Indian origin: Persons of Indian origin (PIO) scheme was launched in 1999 and the PIO card was issued to any person currently holding foreign passport, who can prove their Indian origin up to three generations before. What is Persons of Indian origin card? • PIO cards are issued to individuals who are either citizens or naturalized citizens of another country, but are of Indian origin, through their parents. • Citizens of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and other countries as may be specified by the central government are not eligible for grant of PIO card. • The PIO card must be produced alongside the foreign passport when entering or departing any port in India. • A PIO card is generally valid for a period of fifteen years from the date of issue. Benefits of a PIO card (i) PIO card holders do not require a visa to visit India for a period of 15 years from the date of issue of the PIO card. (ii) They are exempted from registration at FRRO/FRO if their stay does not exceeds 180 days, Incase if the stay exceeds 180 days, they shall have to register with FRRO/ FRO within the next 30 days. • Acquisition, holding, transfer and disposal of immovable properties in India, except agricultural/ plantation properties • Admission of children to educational institutions in India under general category quota for NRIs, including medical and engineering college, IITs, IIMs etc. • Availing various housing schemes of LIC of India, State Government and Central Government agencies all future benefits that would be exempted to NRIs would also be available to the PIO card holders. Overseas citizenship of India: Introduced in August 2005, the overseas citizenship of India (OCI) scheme was launched during the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention at Hyderabad in 2006. What is overseas citizenship of India card? • OCI cards are given to those who have taken citizenship in other countries, apart from India, but have Indian origin roots. • Therefore, Overseas Citizenship of India is not an actual citizenship of India and thus, does not amount to dual citizenship or dual nationality. BENEFITs of OCI CARD: • A registered Overseas Citizen of India is granted multiple entry, multipurpose, life-long visa for visiting India. • he/she is exempted from registration with Foreign Regional Registration Officer or Foreign Registration Officer for any length of stay in India, • is entitled to general 'parity with Non-Resident Indians in respect of all facilities available to them in economic, financial and educational fields • In 2015 Indian Parliament passed a bill to amend the Citizenship Act 1955 to remove disparity between Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) cardholders. PIO card Vs OCI cards Both the cards are aimed at providing long-term residency rights to people of Indian origin and to help them participate in economic and educational activities in India. If you are a PIO cardholder, and want to become an Indian citizen again, you need to reside in India for minimum seven years before making an application for grant of Indian citizenship. An OCI cardholder may be granted Indian citizenship after five years from the date of registration provided he/she stays for one year in India before making application. How will merging help? It was envisaged that merger of the card would facilitate visa-free travel to India, rights of residency and participation in business and educational activities in the country. Dual Citizenship: It is generally difficult to have dual citizenship of India and another country, due to the provisions for loss of Indian nationality when an Indian national naturalizes in another country, and the requirement to renounce one's existing citizenships when naturalizing in India A minor child of Indian origins may hold dual citizenship of India and another country. So that the minor can decide within six months of completing 18 years of age as to whether he/she prefers Indian citizenship.

If you would like to know more here is the reference book used: Computer Basics Absolute Beginner's Guide, Windows 8 Edition, ------------------------------ Amazon: https://amzn.to/2J7PIwv Flipkart : http://fkrt.it/gECUwLuuuN Description Download our app : https://www.exambin.com/app Learn online : https://www.exambin.com/learn In this lesson we are going to learn Types of Computers, Uses of Computers, Analog computer, Digital Computer, hybrid computer, general purpose computer, special purpose computer, Super Computer, Mainframe Computer, Micro Computer. All types of computers are discussed, for better understanding we have given the transcript of this video below. Computer awareness for bank po, computer awareness for sbi po, computer awareness for ibps po all will be having importance to the basics of computer systems. This lesson Fundamental of computer in English, computer awareness in English. 5. Types of Computers Based on Work Analog The analog computers are computer systems that measure variations in quantities such as temperature, voltage, speed, etc. Analog computers are known to measure the data that varies continuously Digital Digital computers are the computer systems that count things by manipulation of certain discontinuous numbers and letters through representation of binary digits (also called bits) in contrast to analog computers that measures the variations in quantities). Hybrid Hybrid computers as the name suggests are a good mix of analog as well as digital computers, using an analog computer front-end, which is then fed into a digital computer’s repetitive process. Hybrid computers are used for scientific calculations, in defence sector. 6. Based on purpose General Purpose These computers are designed to work on different types of applications. In these types of computers the programs are not stored permanently rather programs are input at the time of their execution. Personal computers, including desktops, notebooks, smart phones and tablets, are all examples of general-purpose computers. Special Purpose Special-Purpose computers are task specific computers and are designed to solve a particular problem. They are also known as dedicated computers, because these computers are dedicated to perform a single particular task repetitively. Automated Teller Machines are perfect example of this. ATMs are used for a specific task and they were programmed to do that only. 7. Based on Memory Size and Performance Super Computer: They are focused on performing specific actions and follow heavy extremely intense and critical calculations like weather forecasting, fluid dynamics etc. They are generally used by scientists and are very powerful and expensive. The speed with which they operate is highly blazing. Mainframe Computer: They are the typical large computing machines which occupied extremely large space, more than the size of the rooms today. They were capable of operating multiple users via single interface and typically operated more than million instructions per second. Mini Computer: They are the intermediate solutions between Mainframe computers and Micro Computers. And they are also known as mid-range computers. Micro Computer: Microcomputers came into picture as computers having single chip micro processors. They are the most common computers being used for domestic / commercial purposes now a days. They also include solutions like Desktop Computers, Game Consoles, Tablet Computers, and Smart Phones etc. They are basically portable and carry very less space.   8.

Ancient Indian Architecture  - Part IV Tempe Architecture
Link 01 - https://youtu.be/QTh9l7WLxl4 Link 02 – https://youtu.be/oUssv4vEU4w Link 03 - https://youtu.be/WIcxPIv2lWE Temple Architecture Temple architecture of high standard developed in almost all regions during ancient India. The distinct architectural style of temple construction in different parts was a result of geographical, climatic, ethnic, racial, historical and linguistic diversities. In the initial stages of its evolution, the temples of North and South India were distinguished on the basis of some specific features like Shikhara and Gopurams which are gateways. In the north Indian temples, the Shikhara remained the most prominent component while the gateway was generally unassuming. The most prominent features of South Indian temples were enclosures around the temples and the Gopurams (huge gateways). Design The very essence of a Hindu temple is believed to have developed from the ideology that all things are one and everything is associated. The four essential and significant principles which are also aims of human life according to Indian philosophy are the quests for artha - wealth and prosperity; Kama - pleasure; dharma - moral life and virtues; and moksha - self-knowledge and realization. The mathematically structured spaces, intricate artworks, decorated and carved pillars and statues of Hindu deities illustrates and values such philosophies. Layout The basic elements that comprise a Hindu Temple are given below: Garbhagriha: which Literally means womb-house. is a cave-like sanctum which houses the main icon of the temple. In earlier times, it was a small cubicle with one entrance. In later periods, it grew into a larger chamber. Mandapa: is The entrance to the temple. It could be a portico or a colonnaded hall where worshippers stand. Shikhara/Vimana: it is from the 5th century CE. It is a mountain-like structure on top. In north Indian Nagara style, it is called Shikhara and is curved in shape whereas In the south indian Dravida style, it is like a pyramidal tower which is called Vimana. Amalaka: Stone-like disc seen at the top of the temple. Mostly in north Indian temples. Kalasha: It is the topmost part of the temple. Mainly seen in north Indian styles. Antarala: It is a vestibule between the Garbhagriha and the Mandapa. Jagati: This is common in north Indian temples and is a raised platform where devotees can sit and pray. Vahana: It is the vehicle of the main deity which along with the standard pillar or Dhvaj are placed axially Different Styles Nagara The Nagara style that is observed in different parts of India with varied elaborations in different localities has two particular features. a facet or vertical offset projection on the plan of the sanctum and shikhara above, or other structure. It is generally carried up from the bottom of the temple to the superstructure. The Kandariya Mahadeva Temple in Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh is a fine example of this style. Dravidian Dravidian temple architecture evolved in South India, predominantly comprises of temples built of sandstone, soapstone or granite and is characterized by its pyramidal tower. Unlike the nagara temple, the dravida temple is enclosed within a compound wall. The vimana is like a stepped pyramid that rise up geometrically rather than the curving shikhara of north India. The Mandapas/Mandapams or porches are built in such a way that these precede and cover the door that leads to the cell. The Gopurams/Gopuras or elaborate gateway-towers or gate-pyramids encloses the temples. Badami-chalukya The foundation of cave temple architecture on the banks of Malaprabha River originated in Karnataka during 500 and 757 CE. In Aihole, known as the "Cradle of Indian architecture," there are over 150 temples scattered around the village. The Lad Khan Temple is the oldest. The Durga Temple is notable for its semi-circular apse, elevated plinth and the gallery that encircles the sanctum sanctorum. Kalyani Chalukya The Western Chalukya architecture or Kalyani Chalukya style of architecture is a specific style of decorative architecture that originated from the old dravida style and defines the Karnata dravida tradition. Evolved during 11th century it prospered for around 150 years till 1200 CE during the reign of Western Chalukya Empire in the Tungabhadra region of Karnataka and saw construction of around 50 temples. Kalinga : The three styles are Pidha Deula, Rekha Deula and Khakhara Deula with the first two linked with Shiva, Surya and Vishnu and the latter is predominantly associated with Goddesses Durga and Chamunda. Again the first (Pidha Deula) type comprises of outer halls for offerings and dancing while the latter two (Rekha and Khakhara Deula) comprise of the sanctum sanctorum.

Soils of India - Part 1 - Indian Geography
Welcome back to the next lesson in Indian Geography in this lesson we would be seeing about Soils of India Soil is an important layer of earth’s outermost layer known as crust. It is the mixture of organic matter, minerals, gases, water and air and other organisms. Let us see How is Soil Formed? Soil originally comes from rocks, also called the ‘parent material’. Soil formation starts when rock is exposed to the atmosphere. Properties of a soil will depend upon the type of parent material and how the soil is formed. Atmospheric conditions play a vital role in both the process and rate of physical and chemical decomposition of the parent material. Types of Soil • Alluvial soils • Black soils • Red soils • Laterite and Lateritic soils • Forest and Mountain soils • Arid and Desert soils • Saline and Alkaline soils and Alluvial Soils • Alluvial soils are formed mainly due to silt deposited by Indo-Gangetic-Brahmaputra rivers. • Rocks of the Himalayas form the parent material. Thus the parent material of these soils is of transported origin. Characteristics of Alluvial Soils • They are immature and have weak profiles due to their recent origin. • Most of the soil is Sandy and clayey soils are common. • The soil is porous because of its loamy (equal proportion of sand and clay) nature. Distribution of Alluvial Soils in India • They also occur in deltas of the Mahanadi, the Godavari, the Krishna and the Cauvery, where they are called deltaic alluvium (coastal alluvium) • Some alluvial soils are found in the Narmada, Tapi valleys and Northern parts of Gujarat. Crops in Alluvial Soils • They yield splendid crops of rice, wheat, sugarcane, tobacco, cotton, jute, maize, oilseeds, vegetables and fruits. Black Soils • The parent material for most of the black soil are the volcanic rocks that were formed in the Deccan Plateau (Deccan and the Rajmahal trap). • In Tamil Nadu, gneisses and schists form the parent material. The former are sufficiently deep while the later are generally shallow. Colour of Black Soils • Various tints of the black colour such as deep black, medium black, shallow black , a mixture of red and black may be found in this group of soils. Chemical Composition of Black Soils Distribution of Black Soils Crops in Black Soils Red Soils • The main parent rocks are crystalline and metamorphic rocks like acid granites, gneisses and quartzites. Characteristics of Red Soils • The texture of these soils can vary from sand to clay, the majority being loams. Chemical Composition of Red Soils • They are acidic mainly due to the nature of the parent rocks. The alkali content is fair. • They are poor in lime, magnesia, phosphates, nitrogen and humus. • They are fairly rich in potash and potassium. Color of Red Soils • The red colour is due to the presence of iron oxide. • When limestone, granites, gneisses and quartzites are eroded the clay enclosed within the rocks remains intact with other forms of non-soluble materials. • In oxidizing conditions, rust or iron oxide develops in the clay, Distribution of Red Soils • These soils mostly occur in the regions of low rainfall. • Other regions with red soil include parts of Karnataka, south-east of Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Chota Nagpur plateau; parts of south Bihar, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh; Aravalis and the eastern half of Rajasthan (Mewar or Marwar Plateau), parts of North-Eastern states. Crops in Red Soils • The red soils, with the proper use of fertilizers and irrigation techniques, give good yield of cotton, wheat, rice, pulses, millets, tobacco, oil seeds, potatoes and fruits. Laterite – Lateritic Soils • Laterite soils are mostly the end products of weathering. • Heavy rainfall promotes leaching (nutrients gets washed away by water) of soil whereby lime and silica are leached away and a soil rich in oxides of iron and aluminium compounds is left behind. Chemical composition of Laterite – Lateritic Soils • Laterite soils are rich in bauxite or ferric oxides. • They are very poor in lime, magnesia, potash and nitrogen. • Sometimes, the phosphate content may be high in the form of iron phosphate. Distribution of Laterite – Lateritic Soils • Laterite soils cover an area of 2.48 lakh sq km. •Eastern Ghats, the Rajmahal Hills, Vindhyan, Satpuras and Malwa Plateau. They are well developed in south Maharashtra, parts of Karnataka etc. and are widely scattered in other regions. Crops in Laterite – Lateritic Soils • Laterite soils lack fertility due to intensive leaching. plantation crops like tea, coffee, rubber, cinchona, coconut, etc.

BRICS International Organization
What is BRICS? • BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. • BRIC started as a formal grouping in 2006 on the margins of G8 outreach summit. • Since 2009, the BRICS nations have met annually at formal summits. 8th summit in 2016 was held in Goa and BIMSTEC countries were invited for a joint summit as per the tradition. 9th summit in 2017 was held in China FEATURES OF BRICS/brics countries objectives: • Represents 3 Billion People. (40% of World Population) • Accounts for $20 Trillion of GDP which is growing at 28% Growth Rate. • First Summit in 2009, in the midst of Global Recession. • No European/US as a member. • Idea to form this group was conceived by Goldman Sachs. MAJOR ISSUES AND CONCERNS FACED BY BRICS: o Trade and investment o Infrastructure and industrial development o Cultural exchange and tourism What is the Significance of BRICS? • BRICS cooperation has two pillars – consultation on issues of mutual interest through meetings of Leaders as well as of Ministers of Finance, Trade, Health, S&T, Education, Agriculture, Communication, Labor, etc. • Focused on “greater people-to-people participation” during the BRICS events like BRICS Film Festival, BRICS Wellness Forum, BRICS Youth Forum and BRICS Friendship Cities Conclave held throughout the year across the country. • The New Development Bank (NDB) and the Contingent Reserve Arrangement (CRA) are the financial mechanism under BRICS. • CRA proposes to provide short-term liquidity support to the members through currency swaps to help mitigating BOP crisis situation, if such a situation arises. • It would also contribute to strengthening the global financial safety net and complement existing international arrangements (from IMF) as an additional line of defense. • BRICS Credit Rating Agency may come in near future to challenge the monopoly of the West • In the current global political and economic scenario where protectionism and patriotism is on the rise, BRICS can become the bulwark of new globalization and may create new world order driven by emerging economies. Highlights of the 8th BRICS Summit: GOA INDIA in 2016 • Theme: “Building Responsive, Inclusive and Collective Solutions.” • Adoption of “Goa Declaration” a document of 27 pages and 110 pointers. • BRICS: Encompasses 43% of the world population, 30% of the world GDP and 17% share in the world trade. • Institution building to further deepen institutionalize BRICS cooperation; • Implementation of the decisions from previous Summits; • Integrating the existing cooperation mechanisms; • Continuity, i.e., continuation of mutually agreed existing BRICS cooperation mechanisms. Major Outcomes of the BRICS Goa Summit • Reiterated determination to use all policy tools to achieve the goal of sustainable and inclusive growth. BRICS called for tackling terrorism, early adoption of CCIT • Called upon all nations to adopt a comprehensive approach in combating terrorism, violent extremism, radicalization, and recruitment, movement of terrorists including foreign terrorists and blocking sources of financing terrorism. • It further called upon for the early adoption of CCIT (Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism) in the UN General Assembly without any further delay. • It also appreciated the Paris Climate Agreement and its imminent entry into force on 4 November. UN Reforms • India is one among the many countries that is worried about the weakening of international institutions and the tendency to impose unilateral preferences over others. • BRICS called for urgent need to reforms of the United Nations, including UN Security Council, to increase representation of developing countries. Reaffirmed commitment to the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) • Reaffirmed commitment to the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) and swift, effective and universal implementation of FATF on combating terrorist financing, including effective implementation of its operational plan. India's Role in BRICS: India since the inception of BRICS has played an important and active role. It attaches high importance to the BRICS forum for promoting global economic growth, peace and stability. Co-operation on the economic front is one of the focus areas of India's policy towards BRIC. India sees BRICS as a platform to build multilateral relations with Latin American, African and Asian countries. India has also played an important role in the setting up of New Development Bank. Also for India, co-operation with the BRICs is very important in terms of addressing its food and energy security issues, and combating terrorism. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT AT 2025? The BRICS will significantly increase their share in the world economy and trade. A new global financial system with a significant presence of these countries, compared with the current situation, will be created.
