Definition: A rise in the general level of price in an economy. That is sustained over time.

The opposite of Inflation in ‘deflation’.Inflation, in general, is just a price rise.When the general level of prices is falling over a period of time it is called deflation.The rate of inflation is measured on the basis of price indices which are of two kind WPI & CPIWPI - Wholesale Price IndexCPI - Consumer price Index

Rate of inflation (Year x)

In the index, the total weight is taken as 100 at particular year of the past i.e. Base year (Year of reference)Inflation is measured ‘point to point’. It means that the reference dates for the annual inflation are January to January of two consecutive years. This is similar for even weekly inflation.

Types of Inflation: Broadly there are 2 types of inflation.
(a) Demand - Pull Inflation:

A mismatch between demand & supply pulls up the price.Either demand increases over the same level of supply or the supply decreases the same level of demand.This is Keynesian idea.

(b) Cost - Push Inflation:-

An increase factor input costs (i.e. wage & raw materials) push up the prices.A price rise which is the result of the increase in the production cost is cost - push inflation.

A measure of check inflation:-
(1) Supply side: 

Govt may import.Govt may increase production.Govt may improve storage. Transportation, hoarding etc

(2) Cost side:

Govt may cut down production cost by giving tax breaks, cuts in duties etc.By adopting Better production process, technological Innovation etc.Increasing Income of people also helps in checking inflation.

(3) Other steps:

 Tighter monetary policies can be introduced by RBI, this might help in a short run.Increasing production with the help of best production practices is a long term solution.

Other types of inflation: In General there are 3 Broad Categories i.e.
(i) Low inflation:- 

 It is slow & predictable. Takes place in a longer period. The range of increase is usually in single digit. It is also called CREEPING INFLATION

(ii) Galloping Inflation:- 

It is very high inflationRange of increase is usually in double digit or triple digit It is also known as hopping inflation, jumping inflation & Running Runaway inflation. 

(iii) Hyper-Inflation:-

This type of inflation is large and Accelerating. (This might have annual rates in Millions or even Trillion.(Range of increase is very large but increase takes place in a very short span of time. The price shoots up overnight.

Over variants of inflation:-  
(i) Bottleneck inflation:-

This inflation takes place when supply falls drastically & the demand remains at the same level. Such situation arises due to supply ride accidents, hazards or Mismanagement.It is also known as ‘structural Inflation’It can be put Under ‘demand-pull inflation

(ii) Core inflation:-

This nomenclature is based on the inclusion or Exclusion of the good & services while calculating inflation.  In India, it was 1st time used in the financial year 2001-02. In India, it means inflation of Manufactured goods.

Green Revolt – Phase – I – Wheat 
Phase – II – Rice
Focus Area: - Punjab, Haryana, Western U.P.  

Green Revolution– II   concept by – Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Focus crop: - Milk, egg, Meat, Vegetable → A/C to climatic condition
Focus Area: - All India

Organic farming: - No use/less use of fertiliser
- use bio fertiliser, like – Earthworm
- the concept is given by – Albert Howard (1930 – 40)

Zero farming: - up to 3-4 years. – Continuous use of organic fertiliser/ organic farming and due to this fertility of soil increase and After  some period, there will be no use of fertiliser


In this farming, after cutting one crop the land is left as it is for some years. Nothing is grown there. The weeds or bamboo which grow on that land are not pulled out. They are cut and burnt. The ash makes the land fertile. While burning, care is taken so that the fire does not spread to other parts of the forest. When the land is ready for farming it is lightly dug up, not ploughed. Seeds are dropped on it. In one farm different types of crops like maize, vegetables, chillies, rice can be grown.

Valency may be defined as “the combining capacity of the atom of an element with atoms of other elements in order to acquire the stable configuration (i.e. 8 electron in valence shell. In some special cases it is 2 electrons).”


It refers to the distance between the centre of nucleus of an isolated atom to its outermost shell containing electrons.

The atomic radius decreases on moving from left to right along a period. This is due to an increase in nuclear charge which tends to pull the electrons closer to the nucleus and reduces the size of the atom.

In a group atomic size increases from top to bottom due to increase in number of shells.


In a period from left to right metallic nature decreases while non-metallic character increases.

In a group metallic character increases from top to bottom while non-metallic character decrease.

As you all know that SSC has released the dates for CGL 2016. Tier-I is scheduled to be held from 27th August, 2016.  We earlier expected some changes in SSC CGL 2016, that has now come true.
So, here we are with the changes and pattern.
1. Tier-I and Tier-II examination will be held in computer based examination mode, treating Tier-I examination as only qualifying etc.
2. The Commission has decided to reduce the Number of Questions from 200 to 100 in Tier-I of the above Examination which would continue to carry 200 marks.
Now, lets have a glimpse on the new pattern -
The final merit will be prepared on overall performance in Tier-I, Tier-II and Tier-III. However, the candidate will need to qualify all the tiers i.e. Tier-I, Tier-II and Tier-III separately. There will be no sectional cut-off.

Update: There is also inclusion of Tier-IV which is "Computer Proficiency Test" of 100 marks.

Document Verification will also be conducted as per the provisions of the notice of examination.
