This paper evaluates the candidate’s approach to dealing with issues of integrity and probity in public life. It also evaluates the candidate’s problem-solving and conflict resolution skills.

This paper may have a minor overlap of topics with Governance and Social Justice Subjects from General Studies II in the Civil Service Examination’s mains papers, but its syllabus is largely independent of that of other GS papers.
