Current Affair 1:
AIM’s Three Innovative Resources to Empower Indian Youth



Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), NITI Aayog, has launched three new resources aimed at fostering innovation and creativity among India's youth.

The ATL Tinkering Curriculum is a structured learning pathway designed to help students develop and hone their innovation skills. The curriculum covers a wide range of concepts, from basic electronics and mechanics to cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing and Internet of Things. With this curriculum, students will be encouraged to identify and design creative solutions to everyday problems through hands-on, experiential learning.

The Equipment Manual provides comprehensive guidance on the equipment provided in the Atal Tinkering Labs in schools across the country. The manual contains detailed information about each equipment and tool, including the specifications, applications, and examples of projects that can be built using them. It is a valuable resource for anyone looking to explore the possibilities of innovation and problem-solving.

While as, the Calendar of Activities for 2023-24 outlines a year-long schedule of events, workshops, and competitions aimed at promoting innovation and entrepreneurship among students. The calendar has the latest Tinkering Curriculum and Equipment Manual integrated into it. It also has a special section called - Activity of the Month which has exciting activities that the students can do in their ATL lab every month.

Current Affair 3:
Proba-3 mission


The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Proba-3 mission, consisting of two spacecrafts, will demonstrate precision formation flying in space.

Why it is needed?

Current scientific and applications challenges call for the detection of ever fainter signals and smaller features. Larger apertures, longer focal lengths and baselines that are beyond what can be achieved with a single spacecraft will be required to meet these goals. The solution is satellite formation flying.

What is formation flying?

The focus of formation flying is to maintain a targeted orbit configuration of various spacecraft. Having multiple satellites fly in a specific geometry avoids the technical and financial challenge of building one satellite of equivalent size.

Achieving precise formation flying opens up a whole new era for science and applications. Future missions could be assembled on a much larger scale. Applications of interest include Earth observation as well as in-orbit satellite servicing.

Current Affair 4:
Per Capita Income in Rural and Urban Areas


From PIB:

Government compiles estimates of rural and urban income, in terms of Per Capita Net Value Added (NVA), only in the base year of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) series, which is currently 2011-12. The per capita NVA for rural and urban area was Rs.40,925 and Rs.98,435 respectively in the year 2011-12.

Government does not compile estimates of the average per capita income among the men and women, SCs and STs in the country.


The primary policy objective of the Government is development of all segments of the population. Its focus on inclusive growth is reflected in commitment to Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas to reduce poverty and inequality, provide social security, income generation and livelihood options, and improve the quality of life of the vulnerable sections of the population in the country.

In this regard, the Government is implementing a number of targeted programmes such as

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana - National Rural Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NRLM), Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojna, fund transfer under PM-KISAN, PM Fasal Bima Yojana claim payments, fertiliser subsidies, interest subvention for dairy cooperatives and Agri-Infrastructure Fund for farm gate infrastructure etc.
