Dear manisha,
The electron pair that is pulled closer to the nucleus requires more energy to be removed from an atom. It means that ionization energy increases while these electrons become more inert and non-reactive.

thanks expert for well explained answer but i don't understand the line that you wrote i.e this increase ionization energy for these electrons to make them more inert .
so please explain it again.
