Well there does exist a cabinet committee on emp & sd but have hardly ever heard about it's working. What metric or parameter could be taken to target unemployment rate? For inflation, it is the policy rate, does something like this exist for unemp?

Well there does exist a cabinet committee on emp & sd but have hardly ever heard about it's working. What metric or parameter could be taken to target unemployment rate? For inflation, it is the policy rate, does something like this exist for unemp?

I don't know I just thought that MPC has done a good job in keeping a leash on inflation so far not withstanding the recent stance to support growth at the cost of inflation. Plus it's periodic deliberations give a good idea about macroeconomic state of the econoomy. And then its meetings are much discussed in newspapers. So I thought maybe If a similar mechanism existed for unemployment , then there would be some inbuilt accountability for unemployment. As for the data CMIE unemployment stats could be used or CSO may be charged with collecting high frequency data on employment thts available on a quarterly basis.

But creating employment is not easy like controlling inflation using qualittative and quantitative monetary tools , we can't goad industries to hire more people if in a quarter the unemployment rate breaches a threshold. That's why I asked if it's feasible.

I am just aghast that for 2 decades we have been witnessing jobless growth yet our policy makers and politicians have failed to come up with any lasting solution to it. Yesterday I read about a book what millenials want, and I could relate with the what the Author describes as 'Timepass kar rhe hai ' phenomenon among youth. The situation is very dire , a young population that's now entered late 20s in the last 2 decades of jobless growth and is expected to take up reigns from their parents and assume responsibility and get married and serve as role model for the young , is sitting at home living on parents money and surrounded by an atmosphere of hate. This makes for an explosive mix. It's during times like these that society starts searching for messiahs and ends up choosing demagogues , populists and tyrants, who instead of redeeming them makes their lives even more miserable.

I don't know if any of what I said makes any sense

During his fieldwork, Jeffrey “met large numbers of unemployed young men in north India who were engaged in forms of waiting characterised by aimlessness and ennui. Unemployed young men in Meerut commonly spoke of being lost in time and they imagined many of their activities as simply ways to pass the time.”

@sjerngal please explain how are you using the Epic magazine esp. for mains. Are you reading it cover to cover, marking the content then and there and revising it month-wise, or extracting info syllabus-wise from each monthly booklet and adding it into your notes.

Hello dudes/dudettes what's everybody's opinion on Epic? I'm kinda sick of looking at Vision and it's full of random facts and redundant stuff now. I like Focus but they're making it too lengthy. 

I like it.. Using it for a year now..  Very good for mains also.. 

*referring to this.

Watching Death of stalin and I can already picture someone in that comical role. The coterie of sycophants, the extremes they go to to please the supreme leader, it's all so too familiar.

Hey Guys, i scored 108 in Vision open test 4 but slid down to 80 in vision test 5. Though tests could be tough or easy but the percentile also dipped from 99+ to 89 something. 

the uncertainty is killing, what if the final paper ends up on a low. 

Do u score consistently or the fluctuation is wide?

Last I scored 60-80 marks in different open tests(insights,iasbaba,forum,vision abhyas) but in final exam I scored around 120 from different keys.

one of my friend used to get good score in open tests last year but he didn’t qualified prelims.

That’s even more scary, may be luck is a big factor.

Instead of consistency in scores or ranks
 ,I would suggest you to look for consistency or incremental gains in accuracy rate ,that kind of helps
