    1. 1. MAT–Past papers<br />MAT- UNSOLVED PAPER - 2002<br />
    2. 2. SECTION – A<br /> VERBAL SKILLS<br />
    3. 3. Directions (Questions 7-10):<br />Read the following passage carefully and answer these questions.The public sector is at the crossroads ever since the launch of economics reforms programme in India. The pendulum has been swinging between survival and surrender. It is the result of a confluence of several factors: a shift in global economic environment, the emergence of the market economy and myths surrounding the performance of the public sector. So virulent have been the onslaught that is becoming axiomatic that by the very concept, the public sector is inefficient and resource waster where as private enterprise is resource efficient.<br />The reform programme in India commenced with the policy of restructuring of the public sector supported by greater public participation. With the passage of time, the process of liberalization has shifted to privatization in a disguised form couched as strategic sale. In the wake of the recent hot pursuit of the wholesale privatization programme, a lively and poignant debate has emerged. It provides a golden opportunity to introspect and revisit the issue.<br />At the very outset it must be made clear that in the worldwide liberalized economic environment and very high stake of the state in most public undertakings, disinvestment policy should be welcome. With public participation in the PSUs, there will be a good dose of accountability in the system. What needs to be reviewed are some basic issues; the priorities allocated to the enterprises selected for disinvestment, <br />
    4. 4. a comprehensive road map delineating the route, the modes and modalities, timing and its consequences. These basic issues require greater discussion and participative decision-making. In any<br />event, the disinvestment programme in respect of the closed and non-revivable units is a must if the drain of further resources is to be prevented.<br />Let it be understood that PSUs are a big repository of value and it will take quite some time for a privatisation programme to materialise despite the desire to expedite the process. Until then if a vacuum emerges, attended by uncertainty, it will do a great harm to the investments which were made with such great dedication although derided now.<br />The government has withdrawn budgetary support over the last decade. If some support is extended, it is largely directed to closed or losing enterprises, which have no future. A large chunk of these are those which were taken over as closed or bankrupt enterprises from the private sector - a fact deliberately overlooked by the champions of privatisation. These undertakings need immediate attention. They are an unnecessary drain on the public exchequer. A high priority area for the disinvestment programme ought to be these enterprises but under one or the other argument these remain unattended. Maybe it involves a tougher task. If these cannot be sold lock, stock and barrel, asset stripping is the only option. Obviously the government cannot realise good prices from these assets but their disposal will help stop<br />
    5. 5. the drain. If the assets are depreciated or become obsolete, there is no point in holding on to them indefinitely and take to softer options of selling the vibrant and highly profit-making organisations to reduce the budgetary deficit.<br />Non-performers exist both in public and private sector. Why condemn the public sector as a whole? A better option will be closure or privatisation of loss making and non-viable units, supporting PSUs which could be turned around and become healthy and viable and providing autonomy to the boards of PSUs which are performing well and have potential to be globally competitive.<br />
    6. 6. 01<br />Problem<br />The basic issue(s) requiring greater discussion and participative decision making regarding the disin­vestment programme, is/are<br />the priorities allocated to the enterprises selected for disinvestment.<br />a comprehensive road-map delineating the route.<br />the modes and modalities, timings and its consequence.<br />All the above.<br />
    7. 7. Problem<br />02<br />"The public sector is inefficient and resource waster whereas private enterprise is resource-efficient". This opinion is due to<br />a shift in global economic environment.<br />the emergence of market economy.<br />the myths surrounding the performance of the public sector.<br />All the above.<br />
    8. 8. Problem<br />03<br />The reform programme in India started with the policy of restructuring of PSUs has got shifted to<br />liberalization <br />privatization<br />globalization <br />None of these<br />

    10. 10. Problem<br />05<br />According to the author, non-performers exist in<br />government<br />public sector<br />private sector<br />public and private sectors<br />
    11. 11. Problem<br />06<br />An appropriate title to the passage will be<br />"Disinvestment of PSUs"<br />"Economic Reforms Programmes in India"<br />"Liberalised Economic Environment"<br />"Non-performing Assets"<br />
    12. 12. Directions (Questions 7-10):<br />Read the following passage carefully and answer these questions.<br />Of the many aspects of public administration, the ethical aspects are perhaps the most important but the least codified. While administrative rules and procedure have been codified in various public documents and manuals, there is no manual for the ethics of public servants.<br />While organizational behaviour analyses the factors which influence the behaviour of individuals in an organization, ethics refers to those norms and standards which behaviour of the people in an organisation must conform. While behaviour analysis deals with factual aspects, ethics relates to the normative aspects of administration. The normative aspects are of the greatest significance. Just as for an individual if character is lost, everything is lost, so also for an administration if the ethics is lost, everything is lost. Neither efficiency nor loyalty could be substitute for high ethical standards. In India, though there is no ethical code for public administrators, there are what are called, the Government Servants' Conduct Rules. These rules lay down what constitutes misconduct for the public servants. It is apparently implied that such misconduct, which is not permitted, is also unethical conduct.<br />
    13. 13. Problem<br />07<br />As per the passage, organizational behavior is<br />same as ethics in organizations<br />different from ethics in organizations<br />human behavior in organizations including ethics<br />None of these<br />
    14. 14. 08<br />Problem<br />Ethics is to an administration, what character is for<br />an administrator <br />an official<br />an individual <br />None of these<br />
