Hi
Hope you are talking regarding Political Theory of NCERTs.
It is very much relevant to UPSC.It gives us basic idea and helps in understanding basic principles of our constitution i.e liberty equality and objectives we wish to achieve i.e social justice.It explains us the concepts of nationalism, secularism.It gives us perspective of all these aspects.It is important for us to have an idea of all these to understand our constitution, polity, policies and our nation better.I can say it gives you basic idea of all the aspects which are important in nation building.
