We met Rahul Gandhi ji on 30th Jan 2014. Explained to him the issue of civil services Aspirant's . The conversation lasted for 15 minutes. After which he assured that the govt. will resolve the issue in favor of students.Within 10 day on 9 Feb govt announced age/ attempt relaxation in civil services exam and other examination by Upsc.

Start of press relase:
Press Release : protest by civil services student in front of parliament
(Note: we are not against changes in syllabus , but the manner in which it has been implemented)
Today more than 700 Students protest in front of parliament and some student even entered the premise of parliament. They resisted detention and shouted slogans. This was our 9th protest and our issue has been already raised in special attention motion in both the houses. Also almost every-body in government know about our issue , However still nothing is been done ,why?
Later the students were arrested and taken to parliament street police station where they are detained
What are our Demands( In order)
1) 3 fresh attempts and 3 year age relaxation be provided to all categories of students including SC,ST ,OBC,GEN (caught in transition period of 2011 and 2013)
2) Govt. take steps to stop discrimination against regional & rural background candidates. (70% of people live in rural India, don't they have right to participate in their own governance ?)
Union public service commission( UPSC) is behaving in discriminatory and arbitrary manner against rural and regional language candidates. Upon introduction of major changes in 2011 and 2013 no age & attempt relaxation was given to candidates on the precedent of 1979.
In independent India ,when first time in 1979 changes were carried out in civil services examination ,three fresh attempts and age relaxation was provided to all candidates. This is only second time in history that such changes have been carried out so why was the precedent not upheld in 2011 & 2013?
Because of these changes students from Hindi, Tamil , Telugu, Kannada, Urdu etc all regional language and rural background have been completely wiped out. More than 20 lakh students are affected by these changes.
We met several MP and also officials and we found out that the “UPSC Chairman D P Agrawal is Rigid on the issue” .
Is Mr D P Agrawal only chairman of Urban India?
We will continue to do protest and it will become bigger and stronger from here.

Mission Parliament Adjournment
Please join as volunteer for our mission parliament adjournment. You can join the front end team in Delhi or the back-end team (work from home). Be a part in creating history. or you can also email your name and number at email@example.com
Our Main Winter session plan
Mission Parliament adjournment
We have drafted a plan which involves lots of work, planning and technology. But at the end, success and mission accomplished. The plan revolves around parliament adjournment on the issue of Age/attempt relaxation & reversal of discriminatory trend in UPSC Civil Services Examination. We are very confident about this plan. In monsoon session we had worked with this plan and at that time there were only two teams. So we know what we are talking about. Our goal is to get 750 Signature of MP's on the issue and ask MP's not only to raise the issue on the floor of the house but also to get the parliament adjourned.
We need two kind of volunteers
1) One who can be a part of team in Delhi and meet Member of parliaments (a Front end support team)
2) The other who are outside Delhi but can work from home (back-end support Team)
Front end team : We require around 100 people in group of 5 to 7 members ,so ideally around 20 teams. Each team (At least one member) must be equipped with Android Smart phone (preferably GPS enabled) with 3G connection. They will be given a roster to meet MPs and explain the issue.
With the available internet connection, they will upload the outcome of their meet. Also, with the help of GPS, each team will be tracked in Google maps by central hum.
We will have to make sure that no two teams go to the same MP. This will prevent duplication.
Each team will carry all newspaper cuttings, documents, pictures of protest etc. We will also provide one day training to teams. We will also drop few teams in permanent locations like North Avenue or South Avenue etc in Delhi. There are several other details which we are skipping for the time being.
Timing: We will start from 5th Dec and will work till parliament winter session is over. Working hours are 8 AM to 8 PM.You will be a part of the team which will create a history.
Back end Team : This team will work from Home, anywhere in India. These will be equipped with Phone, Internet and E-fax etc. We require at least 35-40 people in back-end support. Goal will be to track MPs by calling them,and then direct the nearest team working at the front-end, by updating in the roster. For this we can make best utilization of people residing outside Delhi. We prefer people from Delhi to take front-end work or central supervision.
Please give feedback about our plans, by writing to us at our email ID firstname.lastname@example.org . Kindly encourage others to be a part in this movement. Also give ideas on the use of technology and Application or any other input.
