The UPSC Prelims examination often includes questions concerning programs and policies related to children and the elderly. Aspirants should be well-versed in government initiatives, schemes, and policies tailored for the welfare, education, health, and empowerment of children and the elderly in India.
For children, knowledge about programs like Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS), Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Mid-Day Meal Scheme, National Nutrition Mission (Poshan Abhiyan), and policies addressing child labor, education, health, and protection is crucial.
Regarding the elderly population, understanding initiatives like the National Programme for Healthcare of the Elderly (NPHCE), National Action Plan for Senior Citizens, and pension schemes aimed at senior citizens' welfare is significant.
Thematic Current Affairs dedicated to these segments provide updates on new policy launches, amendments, evaluations, and their impact on children and elderly welfare. Keeping abreast of these developments enhances aspirants' understanding and equips them to handle related questions effectively in the UPSC Prelims examination.
Verifying, please be patient.
