Q: How can I write a statement of the problem for my thesis on the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) scheme?
The PMUY* is an LPG distribution scheme by the Indian government for poor people.
That sounds like a topic of significant social relevance. :-)
The statement of the problem, or simply, the problem statement, of a study is a detailed yet concise expression of the topic under study. Very broadly, it involves explaining three points: the present or existing state regarding the problem, the desired or ideal state, and how your study will provide a remedy or solution to attain the desired state.
You haven’t mentioned what exactly your thesis will focus on, such as the implementation (and perhaps how that can be improved) of or the challenges (and what can be done to address these challenges) around the scheme. Based on the exact focus of your study, you’ll need to work out the problem statement.
