Timing: Please try to make a request 10-15 days before the possibility. If not it will be very difficult for CIS-A2K to support your request. We will try our best to attend to the request ASAP. Once your support is confirmed please give us up to 5-10 working days to extend support.

  • Once accepted the Applicant is required to submit their standard KYC documents self-signed (PAN & Masked Aadhar) to CIS over email for the official record.
  • The recharge will be done by A2K only.
clock icon
Lessons and reports: Sharing lessons and experiences from your activities are useful for all of us. Once your proposed activity is done, please take time to document them (preferably on the wiki). CIS-A2K will also be glad to publish them as a blog post under your name and circulate them in our newsletter to the wider Wikimedia community.
  • Applicants may submit another subsequent request for renewal/recharge of their data pack at the end of this period, on the condition that they have contributed another 2000 global edits within this period.
  • Wikimedia Foundation & CIS contractors, grantees, and staff will not be eligible for this support.

Note: Sharing contribution report is mandatory. Failing to submit a narrative/financial report in time may make your next requests/participation in CIS events ineligible.

  • Last three month global contribution = 5000+

Hello, Dear A2K Team,
I'm (User:Pranayraj1985) one of the active Wikipedian in Telugu Wikipedia and Wikimedia Projects. I've been on the path of contributing to the #2500Wikidays challenge for the past six years in Telugu Wikipedia. Now I need support for my Internet Connection Recharge (ACT Fibernet: Rs.3245/- per next six months) for completing #2500WikidaysChallenge. It would be helpful to me to complete the 2500WikidaysChallenge in a successful way.--Pranayraj1985 (talk) 03:45, 13 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dear User:Pranayraj1985, hope you are doing well. Thanks for being patient. The A2K request page is reopened now. Please go through the updated policies & guidelines and write your request again, also use the template to write it, so, we can review it properly. Thanks Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 07:34, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear Nitesh (CIS-A2K), Thank you for your reply. I have a question, Is community members' endorsement only for the new application or every renewal period?--Pranayraj1985 (talk) 12:21, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear Pranayraj1985, thank you so much for your amazing work. As you already read about the policies we can provide support who is working actively and you are the one who is participating actively in the Wikimedia movement. The recipient only can apply for three months of support. That would be great if you can update your next three months' activities plan except your #2500wikidays if you have any as this is one of the guidelines. Regards Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 11:17, 27 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear Nitesh (CIS-A2K), I am using act fiber internet and renewaling every six months. In the new guidelines changed by CIS, they say that the internet period will be given for 3 months only. But Act-Fiber Net has only 1 month, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months plans. There is no three month plan that you give. What to do now..?
Hey Pranayraj1985, thanks for putting your question here to maintain transparency. Yes, according to new guidelines, A2K can only provide support for three months only. I can confirm with you only when the team will make the decision after reviewing your application. However, for clarity, we can go with 1 monthly plan only for the next three months. I can understand that policies and guidelines are quite new for everyone and please feel free to ask your question here. Thank you Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 10:12, 28 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear Nitesh (CIS-A2K), Thank you for your reply. my contribution plan for the next 3 months is will create 100 new articles (around 6000 bytes or 300 words) within the next three months period in Telugu Wikipedia. and am ok with the 1 monthly plan only for the next three months.--Pranayraj1985 (talk) 18:17, 30 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear @Pranayraj1985, thanks for your patience and we always appreciate your work. Thanks for your response according to the policies. Thanks for your contribution and your contribution is good enough to get this support. I hope you are aware of your commitments for the upcoming three months' activity after getting internet support. This request is   Approved. Please go through the guidelines once again and provide us needed information and stuff. If you have any questions please let me know or email me at nitesh@cis-india.org. The process will take a few more days as we mentioned in the guidelines. Regards Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 10:00, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dear @Pranayraj1985, there is a quick question for you. I went through your WMF grant but it is over according to the end date. Could you please confirm that you are not a grantee yet if you are not then there is no problem. If it's still going on then we have to put your request on hold. Could you please confirm, so we can go ahead with your request? Regards Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 05:39, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Greetings to A2K team, I'm Meenakshi nandhini, actively contributing to Malayalam and English Wikipedia for the last 5 years. I have created well over 250+ articles and made over 2500+ global contributions in last 3 months. I am one of the administrators of Malayalam Wikipedia since 2020. I have been actively organizing and participating in events and editathons. Successfully completed 15 continuous 100wikidays and the next one is in progress. I also contribute to Malayalam Wikisource, and have proofread 5 books. You can have a look at my contributions here. Four Articles I brought to Featured Article in Malayalam Wikipedia. Now wiki editing has become a part of my life. Getting internet support will be useful to actively contribute, organize and participate in editathons, workshops and other Wikipedia activities in the next three months. Next month I am organizing an event about Women health and will also continue contributing more articles. Looking forward to a positive response. Thanks and regards--Meenakshi nandhini (talk) 17:54, 15 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dear @Dhondudagde, I am still waiting for your reply, I found your VP post as well, however, there is nothing from community members. Could you please notify your community members so we can proceed with your request? Regards Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 13:41, 22 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Nitesh (CIS-A2K), @Subodh (CIS-A2K), Here there are few issues with your expectation.
  • Our community mrwikisource is a small and emerging community. All of our active members are not aware of larger processes and activities.
  • Many of them are still new and yet to know basic pages like village pump and how to use them.
  • This may take a while to spread a word about how CIS-A2k internet support/technical support requests are processed with new policies. You should take some initiatives to make communities like us to be aware of such processes.
  • So until they are aware of all these how one can expect a active discussion of any sort on the requests?
  • Here only those who are making any applications will read and get to know about the process but involvement of others is a larger community issue. thanks

Hello @QueerEcofeminist🌈, thanks for writing here. We understand the concerns and we respect all the dedicated contributors.
  • We always try to support each community member if I am not wrong I did not receive any call or email from anyone for the support. I am happy to help or support but I did not find anything anywhere, apologies if anyone reached out and I did not respond.
  • We understand it's really difficult for the new editors to understand the policies and put their requests here, please let me know how can I support community members. we have to generate the policies due to a few crucial reasons and now we are trying to follow them. There are a few requestees who reached us before writing the request and we supported them and clarify the process.
  • I wrote comments under the request because I can only review the applications according to the provided information and we don't want to reject anyone's request if they are deserving.

Please let me know if there is something we can do, so, we can proceed further and close it. Regards Nitesh (CIS-A2K) (talk) 11:35, 4 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Dear @Dhondudagde, due to regulatory concerns and ongoing challenges at the organisational level, we will be pausing the services of request page until further notice.
