AIMS Test for Management (ATMA) is conducted by Association Of Indian Management Schools. It was conducted in the month of February in 2012. It had five sections in it. Each section had 30 questions. Find here the solved Analytical and Reasoning Skills section paper from the ATMA 2012 Paper.
Directions (Qs. 1 to 4): Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity. Mark answer-
1) if the inference is "definitely true" i.e. it properly follows from the statement of facts given.
2) if the inference is "probably true" though not "definitely true" in the light of the facts given.
3) if the data are inadequate i.e. from the facts given you cannot say whether the inference is likely to be true or false.
4) if the inference is "probably false" though not "definitely false" in the light of the facts given.
(Note: Each of the four questions has only one distinct answer i.e. no two questions can have the same answer. If you get same answer for more than one question, consider both again (in the light of the information provided) and decide which one of the two would more definitely be that answer and same way review others also.)
An estimated annual savings of around Rs. 1,00,000 crores makes a compelling case for the Government to make a onetime investment of Rs. 60,000-70,000 crores to build an electronic payment platform for all its transactions with individual households. Such a platform could help the
Government save Rs.71,000 crore a year, while benefiting individual beneficiaries to the tune of Rs. 26,200 crores. Many of the beneficiaries would be from financially excluded households
as most of the transactions between the Government and households relate to welfare schemes.
The cost of building the e-platform is prohibitive, but benefits far outweigh the costs, as it would be enhancing the efficiencies of the payment system by reducing leakages, increasing efficiency
of delivery of services and lowering administration costs. Leakages account for about 75-80% of the losses that the Government suffers due to the manual payment system, while share of
transaction cost is estimated at 15-20% of the losses.
1. The Government will be able to recover its investment in two/three years.
2. Such a project, once the clearance from Government is given, can be built in 6 months to one year time frame.
3. Within the Government there is an opposition and doubt raised against the benefits of such a platform.
4. Considering the economic and social benefits, the Government will be too willing to invest in such an e-platform.
