According to one of the protesters, 52 of them gathered to protest at Shah's residence in Lutyens' Delhi around midnight last night. Police said it was a peaceful protest.

Arun S Nigavekar Committee set up by the Commission and UPSC's own annual report have highlighted that "due to CSAT, selection of students from regional languages and from humanities background has declined during 2011-2014", according to one of the protesters.
