Unseen passage 1 – Source: Indian Express

While the FM talked of promoting natural or chemical-free farming across the country, especially in a corridor in the Gangetic basin, no specific allocations have been made to the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. In fact, currently-operational schemes such as the Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana and the National Project on Organic Farming did not find any mention in the budget. However, we hope that the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana, which has received a 4.2-times (year-on-year) larger allocation of Rs 10,433 crore, will earmark some funds for the on-ground implementation of chemical-free farming. As the ministry plans the fund utilisation under RKVY, here are eight suggestions to scale up chemical-free farming. First, focus on promoting natural farming in rainfed areas beyond the Gangetic basin. Home to half of India’s farmers, rainfed regions use only a third of the fertilisers per hectare compared to the areas where irrigation is prevalent. The shift to chemical-free farming will be easier in these regions. Also, the farmers stand to gain as the current crop yields in these areas are low. While researching ways to scale-up natural farming in Rajasthan, we found higher interest among farmers, especially from tribal communities, who practise rainfed agriculture. Second, enable automatic enrolment of farmers transitioning to chemical-free farming into the government’s crop insurance scheme, PM Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY). Any transition in agriculture — crop diversification, change in farming practices — adds to the farmer’s risk. Covering such risks could enhance the appetite of the farmers to embark on the transition.

  • Question 1: What are different schemes running for organic and chemical free farming in India?
  • Question 2: What is allocation from government to promote chemical free farming?
  • Question 3: What are the key points, as suggested by author, to promote chemical free farming?

Unseen passage 2 – Source: Deccan Herald

How, can we bring ourselves to keep caring in the face of the wars, the divisive political agendas, the indignities of life in a country of poor people such as India? Of loneliness, of meaninglessness, of unyielding cynicism? How can we find that which is alive and sensitive despite this, and in response to this? How might we go about reclaiming the sense of caring, if we can call it that?

It may need us to pierce through the deadness around our hearts and challenge our disbelief in the simple and visceral knowing that life is valuable in and of itself. Our response to life in the normal course is a wounded one but, still, I wonder if healing can come by way of poking in the embers of what remains.

What may we find if we do this? We may come across the many ways in which we refuse to care; that is, we may uncover apathy or indifference or irritation and anger, or indeed the big one – fear — that morphs to shame and hate, and functions as a kind of protection against the vulnerability and the flowing chaos that is life.

And in seeing this, maybe we can discover something that escapes us otherwise. We may find that in the space where there would have been our usual hardened response to a situation, there is something else, too. Or rather that these responses seem to cover up an openness that is also present. We understand that there is more to us than our habitual responses of feeling, thinking and being.

  • Question 1: What are the impacts of wars on personal lives, as mentioned in the passage?
  • Question 2: How can we overcome personal impact of war, as mentioned in the passage?
  • Question 3: Summarize the passage in 50 words

Unseen passage 3 – Source: The Tribune

The government has set the ball rolling for the digital rupee with the announcement of the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) in the Finance Minister’s Union Budget speech. The CBDC issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will be recognised as a currency, while all private cryptocurrencies and other virtual digital assets would be taxable. With nations such as China and Nigeria having already taken the plunge, their experience can help India prepare a robust regulatory mechanism for digital currency. The digital finance ecosystem is growing by leaps and bounds in the country. In 2020, the first year of the pandemic, India recorded 25.5 billion real-time online transactions, way ahead of China (15.7 billion), South Korea (6 billion), the UK (2.8 billion) and the US (1.2 billion). Real-time payments/transactions — those which are initiated and processed instantly — are clearly here to stay, with the disruptions caused by the pandemic during the past two years acting as a strong trigger for their proliferation.

  • Question 1: What is CBDC?
  • Question 2: What are the changes in digital rupee, as per latest budget speech?
  • Question 3: How are digital transactions compared with other countries?
