Government Schemes Compilation for UPSC 2020 - Prelims 2020 Current Affairs Yearly Compilation - Programme & Policies 

Every year the Central Government or the State Governments introduce various schemes and initiatives for welfare, growth and development of various sections of the society which are both important for the UPSC Prelims as well as the Mains Examination.  On analyzing previous year Prelims Question Papers we identify that every year one or two questions have been asked from this section.

The questions in the exam are majorly focused on the areas such as the Purpose of the scheme, Objective/Aim, Targets of the schemes, Target groups of the schemes and the Features of the Scheme. To help the students to answers these questions and to help identify which schemes are relevant for the Examination the GS SCORE brings out the Target PT Yearly Compilation of Programmes and Policies. This compilation consists of programmes and policies launched by the Government under various Ministries for the past one and a half years that are relevant for the examination.

How to know whether the Government scheme for UPSC 2020 is relevant or not?

  • If new scheme has been launched
  • Any changes in the existing schemes
  • Anniversary of the schemes
  • Schemes in the news (Issues and design of the Schemes)

The revision through GS SCORE’s Target PT Yearly Compilation of Current Affairs 2020 will ensure the effective utilization of your crucial time and maximize your score in UPSC preliminary examination by providing one point solution to your current affairs need.
