    Dear Sir,

    Please post a summary of all the important points of General Budget and Rail Budget which you do every year. I've found your summary most exhaustive and more relevant from exam point of view. The ones you prepared last year were very good.

    Question 18 answer seems incorrect. It should be Oxygen and Helium .
    At a depth level of 100 – 200 feet of sea water Oxygen and Nitrogen combination is used (i.e air) But beyond this depth helium is preferred as the diluent and is in fact particularly well suited to the depth range immediately beyond air diving (e.g., 150-250 fsw)

    Summary of Economic Survey, Union Budget and Railway Budget will be published on this website within this week.

    Actually this is Trimix, as very deep diving using a helium–oxygen mixture (heliox) carries a risk of high pressure nervous syndrome.
