The bank will now pegged MCLR to 7.70% for overnight borrowing and 8.10% for three years. Other largest banks like ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank too may announce a token cut in the lending rates.

Essays for Competitive Exams : Upholding Good Journalistic Standard

Upholding Good Journalistic Standard

Main Points to Highlight : Many times certain scams were uncovered by media through sting channel operations. Although the legality ofthese operations might be altogether a different debate but still they did some socially good by it. But only of these facts, we can't conclude that the media of our nation has touched the height of high journalism. Media of nation can only be said to be of high standard when it is aware of its societal responsibilities and it is actively involved in it. But in this regard I would rather say with great sorrow that media ofour nation has failed in its duty towards the country. It is correct that the media has been successful in giving itselfa professional touch according to the changing conditions of globalization, but on the other hands it could not maintain a fairfiinctioning of its duties towards the nation at large. Although in today's time media needs to be professional, becausefund raising is very necessaryfor it toAnction properly but with the professional touch it has to focus on social issues even if they are not so profitable.


It is said that media is the fourth pillar of the democracy. It keeps the people aware about the political turmoil on one hand, and it pressurize the political leaders to show accountability to the people on the other. Today, in India the face of media has changed a lot and in-fact many times it has proved its efficiency. The media is actively involved in the national level affairs relating to the social justice, law and order, constitution and many other things.

Many times the media has played an extremely positive role by creating a public opinion towards a thing. Recently in the campaign of social activist Anna Hazaray, media played a big part in making the campaign a success. There are many other examples when the media played a great role in providing justice to the people as like in the case of Jessica Lal murder, if the media had not given the case so much of hype there were hardly any chances that the culprits would have got the sentence of life. Moreover many times certain scams were uncovered by medic through sting channel operations, although the legality of these operations might be altogether different debate but still they did some social good by it.

Govt Sets up Arun Jaitley Panel on Public Sector Bank Mergers

Leave a Comment
The Government of India has constituted a ministerial panel headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to consider and oversee mergers among the country’s 21 state-run banks. The other members of the panel include Piyush Goyal (Railway and Coal Minister) and Nirmala Sitharaman (Defence Minister).  This panel will oversee the proposals coming from boards of PSBs for consolidation.

The Cabinet in August had decided to set up an Alternative Mechanism to fast-track consolidation among public sector banks to create strong lenders. This panel comes less than a week after the government announced a Rs2.11 trillion bank recapitalisation plan for public sector banks weighed down by bad loans, seeking to stimulate the flow of credit to spur private investment.

The government has also exempted consolidation among PSBs from the scrutiny of competition watchdog, the Competition Commission of India. This exemption will cover all cases of reconstitution, transfer of whole or any part of nationalised banks. The exemption will be available for 10 years.

About Bank Mergers :

The idea of bank mergers has been around since at least 1991, when former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor M. Narasimham recommended the government to merge banks into a three-tiered structure, with three large banks with an international presence at the top.

Essays for Competitive Exams : Population Trends in India

Leave a Comment

Population Trends in India

Main Points to Highlight : Rapid rise in population is a major problem being faced by India. It negates all our growth and developments. Ejliwtive family planning and population stability are urgently needed. The present fertility rate is quite high and must be brought down drastically. Illiteracy and poverty are two great hindrances in family planning. The states with low literacy have the highest birth rates. Literate women make good use offamily planning and birth-control devices. Two-children family norm should be enforced strictly. There should be more incentives and de-incentives to oblige people to take up family planning on a large scale to reverse the prevailing and alarming population trends in the country.

The prevailing population trends in India are quite disturbing as they show how fast the country is hurtling towards demographic disaster which in its turn is bound to generate other crisis. The problem of population explosion is one of the major problems being faced by the country. At the rate of 31 new babies every minute we are adding 45,000 persons daily to our population. Thus, every year we have nearly 16 million more people to feed, educate, shelter and find jobs. Obviously, the population bomb is ticking away and we are doing nothing serious and effective in the matter. It negates all our economical growth and development because sustained progress and development are impossible without stability in the rate of population growth. Today's growth rate in population is about 2 percent which will take India's population to 7,000 million mark soon. 

There has been decline in India's population growth rate to 17.64% in the decade 2010-11. But this decline is not enough and demands some urgent and effective if not drastic measures in respect of family planning and population stability. The country's present total fertility rate (TFR) is 2.7. This reflects how miserably we have failed in family planning programmes and population-control. China's TFR in 2014 was 1.55 in comparison to India's 2.51. China has considerably brought down its TFR and population growth rate but India has been left far behind. China is today the most populous country but in coming years it would be replaced by India at the present rate of growth of 2 percent per annum or average of 3 children per woman. The fertility rate is even higher in U.P., Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhaya Pradesh and Punjab. The total fertility rate is the highest in UP at 3.3 percent. 

The sex ratio (i.e., number of females per thousand males) of population is 943 females per 1000 males as of 2015.

Essays for Competitive Exams : Harmful Effects of Mobile Phones

The Harmful Effects of Mobile Phones

Main Points to Highlight : Mobile phones today have come under the category of necessary items rather than luxury. These have made lift simpler with a person being in touch always. They have come to represent your personality and the younger generation's life revolves around the use of these wonder gadgets. Though technology has changed the way we view mobile phones, we cannot ignore the fact that the radiations emittedfrom mobile phones are a matter ofdeep concern. With more and more people claiming to have contracted diseases resulting from mobile phone radiations, it has become important that we take a look at the reality. This essay tries to do exactly that.

Mobile phones have come a long way from the brick sized, extremely expensive gadgets seen in some exclusive people's hands only. Today, various types of mobile phones are available that can be used to represent not only the person but also reflect the user's personality. Children, teenagers, adults or the elderly — there is hardly anybody who has not been touched by this wonder gadget. Everyone knows how to use it and a lot of people are using it to express their views. Increasingly being considered as an object of necessity, the mobile phone today has more takers than it can handle. 

In 1993, when the world was just getting used to the idea of everyone having their own mobile handset, the suit filed by a man claiming that his wife had contracted brain tumor because of the use of mobile phones, shocked everyone. The case was reported in Florida and it sent all the scientists in a flurry to study and prove the authenticity of the claim. It was after these studies were undertaken that it was realized that yes, mobile phone radiations could be harmful for humans.

Mobile telephony has two main aspects — the base tower and the mobile handset itself. The working of the mobile phone depends on communication between the base tower and the handset and the means of this communication is radiation. Let us take a brief look at how a mobile phone and a base interact in order to work.

Essays for IBPS PO VII in 250 Words : Women's safety

Leave a Comment

Essay on Women's safety in today's social and political climate.

The society that respects its women is a truly progressive society. For years, women have been subjugated to exploitation and abuse. Domestic violence in the guise of saving the family name is common. Often girls are sacrificed by 'khap panchayats' -there is no safety for women even at home. Acid attacks have disfigured many young girls. Flesh trade results in trafficking of women.


Recently, crimes against women have been on the rise. Be it eveteasing, rape or murder, women of all ages are subject to these injustices. The gang rape of Nirbhaya in December 2012 jolted India into realizing that stricter laws were needed to ensure the safety of women. Although sex determination of the unborn child has been a punishable crime, the fact is that female foeticide is common in specific states and communities even today. Female tourists have been molested and assaulted by anti-social elements, giving India a bad name.
