Gist of Rajya Sabha Television (RSTV)
The ‘Gist of Rajya Sabha TV’ segment gives you an in-depth coverage of the important national and international affairs that shape India. It covers debates and discussions aired on the Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) that offer considerable study material to UPSC civil services aspirants.
This segment is your go-to resource for expert insights on parliamentary affairs, social and cultural issues that grab headlines in the country, governmental policies and their effectiveness, bilateral relations, international affairs that have repercussions in India, the economy, and so on. The UPSC exam requires you to analyse events and issues, rather than just study the facts. You have to offer explanations and analyses from both sides of the coin, and even be able to provide solutions to problems. A mere reading of textbooks cannot train you on creative and analytical thinking. This can be developed by listening to the opinions of various knowledgeable experts and experienced professionals. We summarise all this and more in our RSTV segment.
Through the three programmes, ‘The Big Picture’, ‘India’s World’ and ‘In Depth’ RSTV offers invaluable news and views on issues pertaining to multiple subjects from the UPSC syllabus. While the former programme covers issues of national importance, the latter touches on bilateral and international relations.
