The section of General Awareness in IRMA primarily focuses on social sector. Past years
trend highlights some specific areas such as
�� Data/Pattern of Agriculture sector
(The Hindu Survey on Indian Agriculture 2008 should prove very useful)
�� The various NGOs and Social movements: their leaders, area of activity etc.
�� Social problems of India
�� Human development indicators, data etc.
�� WTO, its implication for rural sectors
�� Mishaps like accident due to fire, contaminated water, liquor etc.
�� The Govt. schemes for social sector viz poverty alleviation, literacy, employment,
healthcare etc.
(Read through the social sector section in Economic Survey and Budget 2005-06)
To cover these topics browse Govt. of India Websites/Publications. The Public Information
Bureau of Govt. publishes India 2008, which will prove a helpful reading. Website of the
Planning Commissions and documents too have comprehensive analysis of social sectors.
Magazine ‘YOJNA’ too would have useful and relevant material for this exam.
We have provided some of the questions that have been asked in IRMA over the past few
years. These questions have been based on the students’ memory. Also to help you judge
your competency in General Knowledge, a set of practice questions with answers has
been provided towards the end.
