Violation of Human Rights of Student Community in India: The Case of Massive Corruption
This is to bring to your kind notice the blatant disregard of human rights of student community in India, by a wanton Government Organization, Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
This organization holds an exam annually for recruitment to Indian Administrative Services (IAS) of topmost cadre for which 400 000 candidates aged between 21 to 31 years apply.
India being a developing nation, demographically full of young men and women, economically full of unemployed and morally full of exploitable youth. This group of young men and women mostly belong to middle class, are graduates and have high ambition for their future. Of course, acquiring a top cadre government job remains a dream prime.
And the organization who is largest in size in India and is responsible for selection to the highest cadre post is nontransparent and seemingly corrupt. They don't believe in fair practices and the results of the exam are declared as "Sorry" or "Congrats", without letting students know the marks obtained.
This makes the student community deeply frustrated and anguished over the issue. Many of the meritorious candidates see their future getting spoilt. There are only four attempts allowed for the exam in which a candidate has to clear the three stage selection procedure in one row, consisting of the Prelims, Mains and the Interview. This time the problem is with the discrepancy in the result of Prelims Exam Results 2010, where in students fairing poor in the exam are through, while the brilliant are neglected. The induced malignancy is also evident from the lumps of selected roll numbers in the selected roll number list. There are further some evidences with the students which can be produced as per the requirement.
The age of 21 to 31 is crucial and their getting employment as per merit is important or they may turn into fundamentalists.
The student community in the capital has put in protest a Hunger Strike from 9 am to 5 pm at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, to give the authorities a wake up call. But since the corrupt organization is quite powerful they are paid heed by none.
Hence on behalf of the aggrieved student community, whose right to equality, right to information, right to secure a livelihood is being marred by corruption; I request you to look into the matter, guide us and ensure us a speedy justice.
