16. Intellectual Property Right (IPR) is a term used for various legal entitlements which attach to certain types of information, ideas, or other intangibles in their expressed form. (___________________________.) The term intellectual property reflects the idea that this subject matter is the product of the mind or the intellect, and that Intellectual Property Rights may be protected at law in the same way as any other form of property. Intellectual property laws vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, such that the acquisition, registration or enforcement of IP rights must be pursued or obtained separately in each territory of interest.
1) It has also been conclusively established that the intellectual labour associated with the innovation should be given due importance so that public good emanates from it.
2) There has been a quantum jump in research and development costs with an associated jump in investments required for putting a new technology in the market place.
3) The holder of this legal entitlement is generally entitled is exercise various exclusive rights in relation to the subject matter of the intellectual property.
4) Thus IPR, in this way aids the economic development of a country by promoting healthy competition and encouraging industrial development and economic growth.
5) It provides a pool of information to the general public since all forms of IP are published except in case of trade secrets.
17. The endogenous consequences of commercialization for consumption and nutrition relate to decision making within the households. One set of decisions affects the allocation of income for food and nonfood consumption. Other set concerns how the available food and other consumption items are distributed among household members and how household members spend their time, which may change under commercialization as the value of time and decision making power may be affected by commercialization. (__________________________________.)
1) The main objective of this strategy is to support the development of agriculture and transform it into a modern, competitive and commercially vibrant sector.
2) Since, men and women, younger and older people have different preferences in the allocation of household income (for example, for healthcare and nutrition), commercialization may differently affect the welfare of various family members.
3) The majority of small famous experience difficulties in food production with heavy post-harvest losses.
4) All these factors negatively affect their incomes causing food insecurity for their families.
5) This strategy also aims to bring environmental, social and economic benefits to the livelihood of farmers and their communities.
18. The only major country to openly boycott the Belt Road Forum, India has emerged as the most vocal opponent of China’s continent-spanning infrastructure project. The reasons for New Delhi’s skepticism about the Belt-Road Initiative (BRI) may not seem evident. (_________________________).
1) This is not true in all segments of the BRI, but it seems prevalent in the areas closest to India.
2) Even in the case of the Pakistan corridor, the debt obligation is such that the main lesson is that Beijing is happy to entrap even its closest allies.
3) The layout of most of the land-based projects is telling — almost of all it connects countries to China but very little connects other countries to each other.
4) They become clear, however, when seen through the prism of geopolitics.
5) India’s position regarding what was originally called the One Belt, One Road has evolved over time and become increasingly hostile.
19. Article 123 of the Constitution authorises the President to promulgate ordinances if a law is “immediately necessary” and at any time, except when both House of Parliament are in session. (_________________________________). They lapse unless they are converted into Acts within a specified duration. The Land Ordinance would have lapsed on June 3. To avoid that, the Modi government re-promulgated it. But the question is, is this legal?
1) But ordinances aren’t permanent.
2) This was in 1986, before which, interestingly, the Central government had never re-promulgated ordinances.
3) During the 1990s, 196 ordinances were promulgated in all, almost 25% of them were re-promulgated.
4) This makes little sense.
5) This was because, unfortunately, the general rule in the Wadhwa verdict came with an exception.
20. The beginning is the most important part of a work. The first step is the most essential one. (____________________). Everyone has the potential to turn his dreams into reality, but what makes a successful person different from others is his attitude of not putting off things to tomorrow that can be started today.
1) One must not lose track of the fact that only those people have not put a wrong step who have stopped initiating.
2) We make plans, but we keep waiting for the correct time neglecting the importance of the present.
3) And a good start means a half work done.
4) According to the law of Physics, Static energy of an subject is more than its kinetic energy.
5) Thus, an aspirant has to learn how to keep pace with the irreversible time.
