GS-II:VP Menon’s role in accession of J&K and other states.
Today marks the 126th birth anniversary of V P Menon. The nation remembers Sardar Patel’s herculean efforts in ensuring that over 500 princely states seamlessly joined the Union of India. However it was Menon working in the background, travelling across the country and persuading different Maharajas and Nawabs to accede.
Born on September 30, 1893, Menon was the Secretary in the Ministry of States which was established by the Government of India in 1947 to deal with the accession of princely states.

GS-III: Trust deficit
It has been a nightmare of a week for thousands of customers of the Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank (PMC),who were told last Tuesday by the RBI that no more Rs.1,000 could be withdrawn from their accounts for a period for 6 months.
What are the implications of the decision?
What went wrong?
RBI shares regulatory responsibilities over such banks with stares register of co-operative society further mires the problem .With over 1,500 urban co-operative banks operating the country and a few of them already under RBI imposed restrictions , a new road map is essential for their future course.
