Demanding revision of UPSC civil services examination pattern, a hoard of aspirants tried to march at Parliament on 09 December 2013. However, they were rounded up by the police.
Following this, a group of around 500 UPSC exam aspirants, led by a student union, protested at Jantar Mantar demanding UPSC to bring certain changes in civil services exam. Among their demands include three extra chances in the UPSC entrance examinations, a review of the examination pattern, and inclusion of certain subjects in the syllabus that were excluded earlier this year.
The other demands are an age limit relaxation of three-year and the protesters asked government to stop discrimination against candidates from regional and rural backgrounds.
This is the ninth protest on this issue, said a spokesperson of the student’s body ‘Fight UPSC’, and it has been raised in special attention motion in both the houses, added the spokesperson further.
