  • Hi All,

    Senior Supreme Court Advocate Colin Gonsalves will appear for our case.

    Prashant Bhushan ji is too ready to join Colin Gonsalves in our case. But since we as petitioners are not in position to afford entire fees asked by Prashant's sir Associate Lawyer, its humble request to all aspirants to support us and help us by contributing some amount as per their capacity. We need crowd-funding to manage Prashant Bhushan ji. Both are gems and well respected lawyers. We want to fight our case with full strength and against injustice done by nontransparent UPSC. Our First Hearing Day is on 13th October.

    Please contribute monetarily to:

  • How much fees prashant ji is charging
  • 75000 per hearing. We will request him finally to lower his charge which might be done. But still what minimum amount to offer is issue. Our target is to collect 70000/ for 2 hearings atleast.
  • edited October 6
    1)75000 seems to be too low to be true for a lawyer of Prashant Ji's stature.

    2)"..Relief as Honourable Supreme Court thinks." Is it monetary in nature? If so, is it viable to do so for lacs of aspirants who can be adjudged victims of the rapacious discretion & opaqueness of UPSC this year?

    Just curious... Are u fighting this case on behalf of all aspirants who gave the 2017 attempt or only for the petitioners(right now 80 in number acc to u), as the first point under Prayer mentions about compensatory attempts to every petitioner?
    Also, what is the guarantee regarding the fear of witch hunt among students who would like to contribute but holding back due to this? Is it that, one can only hope that there is no witch hunt? Or that there is no such thing as this and its just a baseless rumour?

  • 3rd question- Can people contribute monetarily without becoming a petitioner or providing their details etc?

    1. Nope, relief will be for everyone who has written prelims this year. Why? Because if court grants it only for 80 petitioners, tomorrow everyone will come with a petition to court that see, your judgment is so and so, i am also aggrieved, give me also some relief. Court will never allow anything of such to happen, so it will grant relief to everyone. Example, recent judgment by allahabad high court in neet case.
    2. Witch hunt, honestly no one can answer this. We dont know who is in charge of what. And who's interest is what? and who's at wrong? At best we can speculate but it will be a futile exercise. It's impossible to answer this thing with a simple yes/no.
    It's purely your personal choice.
    1. If you have apprehensions, contribute only monetarily or in any other way.
    2. If you are fine with it, become a petitioner.

  • I have already contributed. As far as witch hunt is concerned trust me nobody in the government setup cares enough for such things. It might be four or five precious years of your life but it's just a job for them. Anyways best of luck to all the petitioners.

    Thanks to Samipya , Vaibhav and entire team.

    Adding Tanu her friend Feroz who had direct communication with editor too in early morning.
    Great team effort.
  • Beautiful articles. :innocent:
    Thank you Niraj, Vishal, Tanu, firoz, samipya, vaibhav and all others. :)

  • Best of luck in your efforts...
  • The article covered all the issues accurately.

    @Queen Nobody in the UPSC or Govt has the time/capacity to witch hunt us for going to Court. They will try their best to get the case dismissed in the court but nothing beyond that. Whereas having more co-petitioners will strengthen our case. Though the outcome will benefit all the aspirants, being an active member in the fight makes us that much more stronger to fight the case. We are a lot more confident now, with huge supporting co-petitioners, a well researched/comprehensive petition and two senior advocates.

    So all the people still confused, we are 80+ petitioners now. You are going to be one among these petitioners, @niraj_singh will guide you how to be one. Bring your friends too... we want to be 100+ strong.
  • Which 4 ambiguous questions in Pre have been referred? ?
    I suppose number of such questions were way more.

    Push towards transparecy must be foremost point in petition too

    Hope we win this case it will set a precident for future too
  • With regards to getting the answer key after prelims, I remember Mrunal too had filed a case, but in lower judiciary. He didn't succeed that time.
    Hope the case goes in your favor and grease the pending reform process as well.
  • how many among petitioners are appearing in mains 2017?
    presence of large no of such candidates can add further weight..
  • Weldone ..at least upsc will come out with more transparent system and will give unambiguous questions.very weldone folks!

    There are few such petitioners. Many first attempt petitioners, those who had last attempt are there too. Many have faced interview earlier or written mains. Good representation overall.
  • Which 4 ambiguous questions in Pre have been referred? ?
    I suppose number of such questions were way more.

    Others questions will be cited too. We have written atleast 4 questions out of several others are. Providing solid irrefutable evidences and logical statements is priority.
