    Dear sir, I have some confusion regarding Bru refugees. As you said in today's DNS is GoI would be given aid to help these refugees for their settlement & rehabilitation back to the Mizoram under 4 corner agreement, but sir in prelims compass of Indian Polity section, it is mentioned in Tripura. Kindly clarify it please.

    @rauias A small clarification needed on leverage ratio for fund if funds. in 14th may dns is just the opposite of today's. 
    In 14th may video, for ratio 1:2, govt through SIDBI was contributing to AIF twice that of the investment made by the company itself. 
    In today's DNS, for ratio 1:4, other investors to AIF total investment amount has to be 4 times the govt contribution to AIF through SIDBI. 

    Which explanation is correct? Please clarify as it was a major recommendation of UK Sinha committee which makes it all the more important for exam.
