Current Affair 1:
Pradhan Mantri Dakshta Aur Kushalta Sampann Hitgrahi (PM-DAKSH) Yojana


First of all, why this scheme:

The scheme would be implemented by Department of Social Justice and Empowerment.

Current Affair 2:


TIG-6G, the Technology Innovation Group on 6G, has developed the Bharat 6G Vision, a strategy to create 6G technology in India by 2030. The objective of this vision is to create and deploy 6G network technologies that provide secure, intelligent, and pervasive connectivity, enabling people all over the world to live better lives.

On March 23, 2023, Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi presented India's 6G Vision "Bharat 6G Vision" manifesto, which envisions India as a front-line contributor to the design, development, and implementation of 6G technology by 2030.


Several countries see India as a promising destination for investments in the 6G technology sector, owing to government policies allowing for 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the telecom sector via the automatic route.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has accepted the 6G Vision Framework.

Current Affair 3:
Animal Vaccine opportunity in India


Some important statements for Prelims exam.

India has a booming livestock population and ranks first in overall livestock population, total bovine production, cattle population, and buffalo population. According to the latest 20th Livestock Census 2020, India's total livestock population is 535 million.

In India, the most popular vaccines are for Peste des petits ruminants (PPR), which protects against viral goat plague, the Brucella vaccine, which protects against Brucellosis, and the FMD vaccine, which protects against Foot and mouth disease (FMD). The sector's expansion is being driven by increased demand for animals and their related products (eggs, dairy, meat), as well as rising desire for companion animals.

The Veterinary Cell of CDSCO (Central Drug Standard Control Organisation) regulates animal health goods in India.

The Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying is in charge of the technical review required for product registration of farm and companion animals, whereas the Department of Fisheries is in charge of aqua products. Biologicals are researched and assessed by the Indian Institute of Veterinary Science (IVRI).

National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP)

It is a flagship programme with an outlay of US$ 2 billion, that aims to eradicate Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and Brucellosis. From 2019 to 24, the initiative seeks to vaccinate 100% of cattle, buffalo, sheep, goat, and pig populations for FMD, as well as 100% of bovine female calves aged 4 to 8 months.

State Veterinary Councils and the Veterinary Council of India (VCI) are assisted in carrying out their statutory activities under the Indian Veterinary Council Act, 1984, as well as in carrying out Continuous Veterinary Education (CVE) for in-service veterinarians.

And ek baar ye bhi dekh lijye:


Current Affair 4:
What is the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC)?



The ocean’s water is constantly circulated by currents. Tidal currents occur close to shore and are influenced by the sun and moon. Surface currents are influenced by the wind. However, other, much slower currents that occur from the surface to the seafloor are driven by changes in the saltiness and ocean temperature, a process called thermohaline circulation. These currents are carried in a large "global conveyor belt," which includes the AMOC.

AMOC stands for Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. The AMOC circulates water from north to south and back in a long cycle within the Atlantic Ocean. This circulation brings warmth to various parts of the globe and also carries nutrients necessary to sustain ocean life.

The circulation process begins as warm water near the surface moves toward the poles (such as the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic), where it cools and forms sea ice. As this ice forms, salt is left behind in the ocean water. Due to the large amount of salt in the water, it becomes denser, sinks down, and is carried southwards in the depths below. Eventually, the water gets pulled back up towards the surface and warms up in a process called upwelling, completing the cycle.

The entire circulation cycle of the AMOC, and the global conveyor belt, is quite slow. It takes an estimated 1,000 years for a parcel (any given cubic meter) of water to complete its journey along the belt. Even though the whole process is slow on its own, there is some evidence that the AMOC is slowing down further.
